I thought that it would be interesting to create a discussion that would allow members to share their original comic and sports art. I have recently expanded my autograph collection to include original comic and sports art. The hobby seems to be growing in popularity. There is a growing interest in not only commissioning artists to produce original works, but to also have the original works autographed. I am currently undecided about having original comic and sports art autographed, and would be interested to hear the opinions of other members on this topic. I am considering it for a few of my pieces. I will get things started.
The Batman is a pencil and ink drawing by Neal Adams. Neal is a comic artist based in Manhattan. It is 14” x 11”. The Indiana Jones is a marker drawing by Eric Lehtonen. Eric is a comic artist based in Long Island. It is also 14” x 11”. The Lando Calrissian is a painting by Kevin Liell. Kevin is a comic artist based in Connecticut. It is 8” x 10”.
I would not consider having the Batman drawing autographed, but I am considering having the Indiana Jones drawing and Lando Calrissian painting autographed. My concern is that the autographs would detract from the original art.
Any contributions to this discussion would be most welcome. Enjoy!
Interesting collection. I do collect comic sketches and autographs of the author/artist as well. However my collection is solely based on vintage comics or cartoons, ie Blondie, Popeye, Dennis the Menace, etc. I probably have a collection of 25-30, too many to mention.
Thanks for the reply, Jorge. It sounds like a very unique collection.
That looks amazing! I always believed that autograph collectors would build collections of original art as well. I am glad that Steve agreed to add a forum category for comic autographs and art.
I collect way to much comic related--sport--hollywood
sports are my fav
Great collection, John. Thanks for sharing.
