Dear Comic Art Fan,

Today we are going to do a quick tutorial on how to select Featured Pieces to appear in your gallery on CAF. To begin hit the "Your Account & Collection" tab on CAF and click "Manage Gallery Preferences." Once that page opens click the link "Featured Gallery Pieces."

There will be two pull down menus, first select the one marked "Room" and select the name of the room in which the piece you want featured is stored. Then go to the second pull down menu (marked “Pieces”) and select the piece. Once this is done click the button "Add Piece."

Now your art will be appear on the first page of your gallery for everyone else to gawk at in wonder and envy.

See you next week!

Colin Solan

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a Frenchman in my forties. I was born and raised in France but I now live in São Paulo, Brazil.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

I love all my pieces but I select the Silver Surfer #15 splash. First because I like the character, then because it is a Bronze Age Marvel piece, and finally because it is a splash.

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

I bought my first piece of comic art more than 30 years ago when I was still a teenager. It was a Jack Kirby page from Strange Tales. I started to collect comics because I discovered through a friend a comic book shop in Paris called Librairie Déesse that still exists today. Then I moved to original art but it took time until I could have a decent collection.

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

The rule is that art has to be displayed or else I should not keep it. So all my pieces are framed and there are always a few displayed on the walls of my house.

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

A Jack Kirby/Chic Stone Silver Age Marvel page, a Jack Kirby/Mike Royer Fourth World page, an EC Wally Wood cover, a page from the Belgian artist Franquin, and whatever incredible piece of art I might fall in love with.
