    (attempted) Flip of the Day!

    I'll answer that one as I'm the guy who picked it up from Anthony's site. Is it worth 33% more after a few days, no of course not. I figured there was a good markup I was paying for and not the first time I've done it. I missed out as I didn't see the piece for sale by Frank in time and couldn't get out to Chicago for C2E2 anyway. I was looking for a good Cho piece in parallel to the right Spidey 800 cover. Maybe the fact they intersected saved me some overall money! (reaching justification ) The plan is to keep this one for a good long while so we'll see how the value plays out.

    Ebay coupon today - anyone use for art?

    I have never heard of ebay bucks or rewards. Just never looked into it. I clicked on this topic earlier this morning to read the posts. I just checked my email and have an email from Ebay wanting me to sign up for the program. It was kind of unsettling. Pure coincidence or big brother? OA cartel expanding their operations? Hmmm
  3. Expect this one to shoot up to $7500 in the next two days?....

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

    Posted this on CAF yesterday but wanted to share it here as well. I wasn't too familiar with the comic story this cover came from, or the artist as he is an up-and-comer, but I loved the published cover when I first saw it and jumped on the OA when it became available. It's not too often I get a piece that greatly exceeds my expectations in hand from looking at the pictures. This did, with the amount of detail and the sheer size. It was never stated so thought I was getting an 11 x 17 piece, but it's 20.5 x 28! http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1462883&GSub=182593 Pheonix Resurrection #4: The Return of Jean Grey Singh Variant

    Thanks! I actually hit Rob up the day it was published, and he finally agreed to sell it.

    Chew got me back into reading comics after over a decade, and looking up Rob Guillory's web page introduced me to OA for the first time. Feels good to be able to get this page from him. Final Image for the Chew Series http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1451783&GSub=182595

    Unprofessional Commission Conduct

    That I can relate. I follow an artist on instagram and have a commission I'm waiting on. Original estimate was 8 weeks max, but now it's been 4 month. He has done a lot of other work including numerous person sketches and even the one a day inktober event. Yet I can't even get an update, except the first one three months ago. I just don't get it. The guy even picked the subject out of three choices and he was excited to do it.
  10. I just saw the pre-auction estimates as his way to try something new and see what people think, not a manipulation angle. Maybe that's my naivete. There have been only three articles posted so far with estimates, the earliest one on Nov 24th. I understand constructive criticism, but man....tough crowd.

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

    Just completed a significant (and for me high anxiety) trade in my infantile OA collecting career. This was my favorite piece in the trade. I will be posting the rest of the pieces to my CAF gallery, but wanted to share this one here . One comment I have to make is that the other party was a joy to work with, and it speaks volumes to the OA collecting community. http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1440493&GSub=182593 McFarlane Spider-Man #9 page 3
  14. So I've always understood blue line art, but I've seen some pieces with red lines being used in the backgrounds and usually a message that says remove red lines. Here is a random Warlock piece that I have that has them. I'm also about to get a cover with some red line work on it. What were those used for?
