Michael Jackson drawings (Miscell inc. 'Historic portraits' and 'Disney characters')

I'm noticing a sudden influx of MJ signed Michael Jackson drawings coming on to the auction market, which seem to share the common themes of either 'portraits of historical figures'  or 'Disney characters'.

Both of these themes are of course recognised from Michaels' drawings both at a young age and later in life, but it is interesting that so many new drawings are being released on to the market at the same time. 

Here are some current examples:

 Seller Madonna220 from Bangor in the UK is a 'repeat offender' on ebay.com, with very childish drawings that you would think couldn't possibly sell.  But the last one offered (page 102 of this thread) apparently sold for £82 / $106, if the ebay sales info is right and not a faked purchase.

Two more offered at £350 BIN on ebay.com:

MICHAEL JACKSON DRAWING SKETCH DRAWN AND SIGNED BY MJ NOT MADONNA

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MICHAEL-JACKSON-DRAWING-SKETCH-DRAWN-AND-SI...

This is an extremely rare opportunity for the music collector or mj fan. It is an original drawing of a face by the music legend Michael Jackson. Drawings by mj are getting harder to come by now and I am reselling this one due to a non paying bidder. The legend behind smooth criminal, thriller and the moon walk drew this one of a kind drawing of a face, perfect investment or piece for the ultimate mj fan a4 in size. I am also selling one other from my collection of mj drawings. Buy now or make an offer. Good luck and international bidders PayPal only.

MICHAEL JACKSON DRAWING SKETCH DRAWN AND AUTOGRAPHED BY KING OF POP NOT MADONNA
A drawing of a man with a moustache by drawn and autographed signed by Michael Jackson the king of pop. The music legend behind the moonwalk and billie jean and smooth criminal drew this. I am selling two original mj drawings both unique and one of a kind. Comes complete with coa, which states it is damaged in one part but it is a crease on the drawing which can be seen in the photo and should be ok when framed. Overall good condition. Drawings by mj are getting really hard to get now so perfect for the ultimate mj fan or music collector, a good investment a4 in size. Buy it now or make an offer. Only selling two drawings from my mj drawing collection as need the funds. Good luck international bidders PayPal only
The COAs are terrible. How can that be convincing to anyone? I fear this sad situation will be replayed on eBay and elsewhere for a long time coming.

Sadly buyers seem to want to be convinced......and if they don't like the item when it arrives, they can just put it back on ebay as a 'genuine item from their collection', and someone else will likely give them a tidy profit for it.   I'm sure you are right.  There will be no end to this...............

(Photo of first drawing above re-posted as the original did not include the fake 'MJ signature'. 

Lizzie, I call them "delusional autograph collectors."

Sad.

 More from madonna220 of Bangor UK, who seems to be going into 'industrial production' of these fakes.  They could become 'collectors items' for the fake Letters of Authenticity alone, which are possibly unprecedented in their sheer stupidity.

The second drawing has an LOA which mentions 'Banana Boat Authentication'.  In the UK, use of the phrase 'Do you think I came in off the last banana boat / s/he came in off etc etc. is a racist phrase implying stupidity of immigrants, specifically those from the West Indies.  One can only surmise what is (or is not) going on in this forgers mind.

 It seems that Kristen (Leigh) may be a makeup assistant!!!  (ie an assistant that makes things up)   :)

Mr Parr (as hawaiiat80) is selling another 'MJ -signed' photo, with a 'Kendall Hallard' authentication, signed by Karly Green.   Maybe Mr Parr had 'Special K' for breakfast that day, as the dedication on the photo is to 'Kristen'.

Best to check this one out visually in person, at the authenticator's office, at 'Unit 102E, 2035 4th Street Santa Monica'.    (Nice condos!!   Photo is a different Unit in the same block)

On second thoughts, don't bother.  On the back of the frame ' the cork has a crack'.  Totally devalues it of course :(      Pity, it would have been a bargain at 99p.

(The postage is steep at £20 second-class in the UK!!!)

MICHAEL JACKSON SIGNED PHOTO.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MICHAEL-JACKSON-SIGNED-PHOTO-/27286991338...

In December 2007 Michael Jackson's last published interview by Ebony went to market. He discussed Thriller 25 and his past history and the future.
This photo was taken from one of the many poses Michael Jackson did that day for Ebony. It has been inscribed to Kristen who was one of the make up assistants on set that day. The photo measures 15.5x11 inches and is mounted and professionally framed in a chunky gold coloured frame.
It is supplied with its coa and has its original serial holographic sticker on the back.

 'MJ signed' Peter pan themed drawings on sale on ebay uk, offered at £3,200 BIN. LOA from 'Bob Jones'.

MICHAEL JACKSON SET OF 4 HAND DRAWN PETER PAN DRAWINGS LOA AUTOGRAPHED SIGNED

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MICHAEL-JACKSON-SET-OF-4-HAND-DRAWN-PETER...

MICHAEL JACKSON HAND DRAWN & SIGNED PETER PAN ARTWORKS

SET OF 4 DRAWINGS, ONE OF WHICH IS AROUND A3 SIZE AND IS FRAMED. 

These drawings come complete with a letter from Bob Jones who was the vice president of communications at MJJ Productions. 

The drawings originated from Bob Jones from his personal collection and archive of MJ memorabilia he had aquired over a number of years as an employee. The letter indicates the drawings had been completed by Michael Jackson for the purpose of auction for a hospice. 

It is unclear as to why these items remained in Mr Jones' posession, but I was lucky enough to be able to buy them. 

the 3 smaller drawings are on standard a4 paper, the larger drawing appears to be a3 or slightly smaller and is framed in a black wooden frame

 Another seller who seems to think that a high asking price might convince the unwary that their wares are genuine.  I'd be fascinated to see the 'Certificate of Authenticity', which sadly is not included in the photos. 

Seller cyril2472 of Lyon France is offering this forged MJ drawing of Mickey whistling for 3,500 Euros, on ebay France.

MICHAEL JACKSON - dessin original signé  (signed original drawing)

http://www.ebay.fr/itm/MICHAEL-JACKSON-dessin-original-signe-/14249...

Mickey Mouse whistling

Feutres de couleur, 42 x 29,5cm. Signé en bas au centre.

Rare dessin du roi de la pop musique qui en plus de son talent de chanteur avait un don indéniable pour le dessin qu’il exerça en de multiples occasions.

Certificat d’authenticité délivré 

(Color, 42 x 29,5cm. Signed down in the center.

Rare drawing of the king of pop music that in addition to his singing talent had an undeniable gift for drawing that he exercised on multiple occasions.

 This French ebay offer (yellow shoes) does not appear to be the same Mickey whistling drawing that appears on page 66 of this thread as Lot 126A in the Simon Parr auction dated 28 March 2015. (Top drawing above)  There are differences in the left glove, ankles, and shoes, in addition to the colour.  And also some differences in the faked signature.

 French seller j**l**a** offering a copied 'Bad Mickey' (with a very wobbly forged signature and a heap of mould) for 450 Euros.   Mould may be great in cheese, but is death to collectables!  There is an 'Authentication stamp' on the reverse.

The blue pen original was sold by Juliens in 2009.
