1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, I'm Steven and I live in Singapore. I am 43 and live with my pet corgi hunting zombies.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

One of my favourite pieces would be Barry Windsor-Smith's Tryst. Personally I think its a masterpiece for the intricate linework and setting. Its from his gorblimey days which I consider to be one of his most creative periods.

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I started collecting comics in the late 80s and started to gravitate towards comic art around 2009. A bit late I guess. I like the fact that its one of a kind and owning art from your favourite comics still gives me a buzz.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

I frame some of my favorite pieces (Alex Ross, Frank Frazetta, Barry Windsor-Smith, Dave Mckean). The rest are stored safely (I hope!) in portfolios.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

Well, my dream is to have a Frankenstein plate from the master himelf. The other ones would include a Watchmen page, V for Vendetta, art from Green Arrow #9, and a Fables cover.
