    The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    Posted this on CAF yesterday but wanted to share here as well. Batman Eternal #1 Cover by Jason Fabok Love how the whole Bat family, rogues and allies, was incorporated into this piece. Thanks for looking! https://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1507314
  2. So not an obscure character (though he was a "Flash" in the pan...ok sorry for that), but a very obscure use of the character. Hip-Hop singer, Chris Brown used this image as a reference in a painting he did. Agent Anti Venom Flash Thompson Original Art: First appearance of Agent Anti-Venom
  3. Completely agree. JSC knows how to ride that supply and demand wave better than just about anyone in the industry, but that is some sticker shock for brand new work.
  4. He just posted a lot of his recent original art covers on CAF for sale if anyone is interested in taking out a second mortgage! https://www.comicartfans.com/gallerynew.asp?GCat=67088

    Photographing art with a cell phone (tips)

    Yeah camscanner is a good app. I will say, make sure to select the photo category with MS Lens. It's a picture using your cell phones camera, so the program itself is not doing any editing except for squaring the picture.

    Photographing art with a cell phone (tips)

    I've used CamScanner a bunch and really like it, but I just found a new one today. Microsoft Office Lens. What I like is it allows me to take a picture with my normal camera phone, then import that picture into the program to adjust distortion and borders and finally save it back into my phone gallery. That way the photos are at full camera resolution vs. some scaling with CamScanner (unless you pay for the upgrade). I can also use the photo editor on my phone vs. what's available in CamScanner.

    Keeping your collection private

    I'm a (really) latecomer, ham and egger both, so I use CAF as the best way to plug into the hobby. These boards provide a lot of great information, but the audience here is almost all seasoned collectors mostly having conversations around silver and copper age pieces. IMO. I have no issues there as that's what is dominant in the market, but with CAF, I can search galleries of collectors similar to myself. With most of my pieces posted, they can find me as well. I've stuck up many conversations though DMs this way and have actually made a couple true friends from people thousands of miles away. I have yet to run into anyone dickish. My thoughts, keeping the collection private probably maximizes value, making it public maximizes the social enjoyment. The hobby is niche and one's tastes in the hobby even more so, so by posting I can connect with people with shared interests.

    The Official Commission Collecting Thread

    This is my first (and probably only) NSFW piece but it was over a year in the making and Mike Choi knocked it out of the park. It was also a piece that took a few twists and turns to get it to the finish line and I wanted to share. Venomized Mary Jane, Oil on Wood http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1495783&GSub=188630

    Advice please: Blue Chip vs. Diversity

    Long term, what about when the opposite occurs and the market corrects? Wouldn't a blue chip have a greater probability of retaining more of its value than a group of lesser pieces?

    Comiclink sale has started

    Help educate me on this cover and why it's so high already. Not familiar with the artist and don't see the issue as a key. Really curious on what I'm missing. Is it because of the combination of the characters, or is uncanny x-force covers hard to get? Is this artist's work rare? Thanks! http://www.comiclink.com/auctions/item.asp?back=%2FAUCTIONS%2FALLSUB.ASP%3F_SORT%3DYES%26Focused%3D1%26id%3D1398%26f1%3Da.MaxBid%26ODire1%3DDESC%26f2%3Di.Publisher%2C%2Bi.IssueNumber%2C%2Bi.Genre%26ODire2%3DASC%26f3%3Da.MaxBid%26ODire3%3DASC%23Item_1270156&id=1270156&itemType=1
  13. Yeah, Mike is super talented and just got back into comics after taking fine art classes for the last few years. I just follow him on Instagram.
