Dear Comic Art Fans Member,

Every month on the website we feature a new Sketchbook Theme. CAF members can add images that are drawn by themselves or an original piece from a professional artist. This month's theme is DC vs Marvel: Cosmic Characters. So we want to see all those pinups  and commissions of the Silver Silver duking it out with Darkseid, Green Lantern going toe-to-toe with Quasar, or Galactus trying to take a bite out of Mogo. And remember, everyone who contributes to this month's Sketchbook gets to vote on next month's theme (come on Funny Animals!)

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a radiologist who recently relocated to the northern Miami area. Although my favorite comics are Byrne X-Men, Miller Daredevil, and Alan Moore Swamp Thing, I try to read current comics. My current favorites are Fables and 100 Bullets.  When I went to my first comic convention in the 80's, Creation Convention in San Francisco, I bought two pretty ordinary Daredevil panel pages directly from Frank Miller.   I collected art for a time in the 80's but I sold it all when I went to college.

2. What is your favorite piece in your gallery and why?
My favorite piece of art would be the Elektra Assassin Promotional Poster by Bill Sienkiewicz.  When I collected comics growing up, it was one of my favorite images.  I had the poster up on the wall in my
room. When I started collecting original art again, I found this piece on the internet and bought it.  In my opinion it is one of the best pieces the Sienkiewicz has ever done.

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

I currently have been collecting original art since 2002.  I started collecting art  when I started reading comics again. I went to the local Wizard World Philadelphia show, and bought a piece of art from Greg Land and I got hooked again!

4. How do you store and/or showcase your collection at home?

I store most of my art in mylars placed in Itoya's.  For larger pieces I have them archivally framed.

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

-Charles Shulz Peanuts Sunday
-Alex Raymond Flash Gordon Sunday
-Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein Plate
-Jack Kirby Fantastic Four Cover
-Marshall Rogers Detective Cover
