1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
Long time comic collector who got tired of carrying the long boxes around. I stopped collecting in college but got pulled back in with the launch of Image Comics, as I have always been drawn to the art.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
My favorite piece is likely my Oink page by John Mueller. It's just powerful stuff, love that pig! My Kraken by Paul Davidson and my Cloak and Dagger by Aype Beven (R.I.P.) run a close second. I may always regret not getting a second commission from Beven.
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
I bought my first page about ten-ish years ago. I was a Drew Hayes Poison Elves fan and he started selling pages from his book so I bought one, I've since sold it and regretted it every day. I never realized there was a market out there for original pages until about 10 years ago. I fell in love with the idea of owning original pieces of art. I've been selling comics to buy art ever since.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
I framed and displayed what I could in my office and the "man cave." Sadly the rest are hidden in a portfolio.
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
My wish list is the usual guys:
1. Sam Keith (Maxx)
2. Jim Lee
3. George Perez (Teen Titans)
4. Frank Miller
5. Bernie Wrightson
Most of which are out of my price range so it's just that, a Wish List.
