Mr Frost.I do have the original full email received from PAAS,the first page is listed below with the scan of the signature on the drawing,I will list the other pages hopefully today....thankyou
Lol. What can you say.
Something definitely does not "add up".
Your first page of your email scans says Page 1 of 2 (two). What happened to Page 2 of 2?
Then you add two more pages that say Page 2 of 3 and Page 3 of 3 Where is the original page 1 of 3?
Similar drawing without signature sold at Juliens.
They look too much identical...maybe one of them is traced!?
That's a horrible sketch and the autograph is pathetic.
This looks "almost" identical to this one... which was sold at Juliens-unsigned.
Here is an article on the drawing. http://makeupmag.com/news/newsID/653/ ---closely looking at the lines and details from the article by Michael Thomas--a make-up artist who worked on Jackson in "The Wiz", the Juliens one matches up perfectly---but its not identical to the one above listed by Dennis from an ebay sale.
Its kind of odd though looking back at the article in the makeup mag. The Frankenstein drawing - was supposedly done by the make-up artist (per his own recollection in the article).... yet Juliens lists it as an MJ drawing (unless MJ did one too, which of course is possible). We'll never know for sure, since both are now deceased. Here is the Julien's "Frankenstein" from a sketch pad.
As well as another that was sold from apparently the same person... (unsigned)
They all come with provenance from The Wiz set drawings by Michael Jackson in 1977.
Personally I question anything Julien's / MJ - since the Bush fiasco though.
Thanks for those. If you listen to everything that's been listed about MJ and his sketch's, you wouldn't purchase anything again.
If it were me, and I was looking to purchase anything that needed authentication regarding handwriting and/or even MJ drawings, I would run it by Roger Epperson 1st. He has been on top of MJ forgeries for years, as well as being the #1 guy to go to in Michael Jackson's sigs (no offense Mr Frost :)
I might run an item through this forum and do all my homework first so I am not submitting multiple items to Roger, but even if everyone here stated that something "looked" authentic and I was set to buy, I would STILL have him take a look and have him give me an opinion. I would also ask the seller to guarantee the item will pass Roger's in person inspection after purchase.
Roger Epperson is on this forum or you can try to contact him thru his website http://rogerepperson.com/
