Dear Comic Art Fan,

Fourteen years ago my wife Maureen, my good friend Chris Haggard, and I unveiled on February 1, 2003. It wasn't pretty back then, but it filled the need of many art collectors to share their passion for the hobby with others. We've changed a great deal over the years but our commitment to making CAF the go-to destination for original art collectors and sellers has never wavered. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who has been there with us on this journey!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a 45 year old Brazilian, born in Rio de Janeiro. I have loved Batman since childhood and collect everything featuring him for 28 years now. I have been a lawyer for about 20 years.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

World's Finest #228 page 23, I love this piece, not only because it was the first art I ever purchased, but I am a big fan of the artist Dick Dillin.

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

I got my first headshot sketch in 1991 from Eduardo Barreto. My focus is collect Batman headshot sketches and commissions. I got my first original art in 2005 and have been prioritizing on Brazilian artists’ art that have been doing an excellent job. What influenced me to start this collection was a friend that used to buy original arts on eBay and first introduced me to this fabulous universe.

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

Some of them are hung on my apartment walls and others I store in portfolio folders with top holders.
