1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I have always been an avid comic reader and artwork fan. When the time came (and the pocket helped) I did the logical transition to art collector. That was almost twenty years ago and since then I have this disease running through my veins.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
Ugh, that is a very tough question but. I suppose I am very fond of the Thing piece I commissioned to Lee Weeks several years ago. It is a real masterpiece.
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
As I mentioned, it was 20 years ago. I suppose until then I limited myself to collect my own drawings and to drool every time I saw an original in an exhibition.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
I have more pieces than walls to hang them on so I have several of them framed (although in removable frames so I can change them from time to time) and the rest of the collection is adequately stored in Portfolios. I really would love to have enough space to honor each of those beautiful pieces.
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
I would love a Barry Windsor-Smith Conan (pre-Raphaelite style) of course but I would also love to have an Atari Force commission for the master Jose Luis García-Lopez, a group portrait of the Star Wars classical heroes from Stuart Immonen, a page with Batman from Year One (Oh, David Mazzucchelli.), an Alex Ross piece and the list could go on and on and on.
