  1. NFT art sales are making a S**T LOAD of money for digital artists right now. This is why I think Jason, Felix and traditional artists are jumping on board. To make money. Your favourite traditional artist may want a piece of that pie. If they started selling their work on digital platforms with the NFT, would you following along?
  2. Technically yes, but the artist would only get say 10-40% of the resale value (as they stipulate when creating NFT). They would actually make more money from their initial sale. It would be better for the artist to keep making (digital) art and selling it (+NFT). I am a digital artist myself by the way. Also who's to say the amount received from 5 years of continuous resale doesn't equal the exact amount from one sale after 5 years on someones wall?
  3. I think you've misunderstood the entire concept of NFTs. Do you remember the point in the interview where they mention to Google 'Beeple'. Well, Beeple is a digital artist and most likely the reason NFTs have become so popular recently. Beeple sold his repertoire of digital art + NFTs, amassing more than £3 Million from the sale. Christies are now going to auction off more of his work (+ NFTs) in the coming weeks, a first for Christie's and the digital world. There is now an entire market of digital artists selling their work with NFTs. To answer your question NFT + digital art = l
  4. My take on this, based on nothing but my opinion: Monoprints, due to the fact that they're entirely from recent comic books, are most probably sought after by younger collectors, new to the hobby. Monoprints don't seem to be desirable to older collectors. Heritage seems to be the place for older collectors to auction off and bid on art, I remember reading this somewhere - forgot where. ComicLink, I have been told, is the place for more recent artwork. I feel this auction would have done better on ComicLink over Heritage. Younger audience, more receptive to monoprints. Isn't Com
  5. This is what I see happening. Like it or not, new pencil and ink pages will start to become rarer and rarer. The prices of pen & ink pages from sought after artists will sky rocket...maybe not so much for less desirable artists. monoprints or NFT digital pages.....these will eventually be the norm. Also, while I don't doubt the 'cold reception' to monoprints by the community at this point in time (misplaced or not), Heritage was definitely not the right place to sell one by auction!
  6. My guess would be 'no'. Same with 'analogue' OA. Purchasing the art doesn't automatically give you publishing rights, which is a separate cost in itself. I've heard this before. Similar to not putting your art in a CAF gallery so it's fresh to market at time of sale. Why would that be? Surely the more people who see the art, the more there'll be who desire it?
  7. I refrained from buying any SS:B art, even though it's amazing, Silver Surfer is just not my guy, and I only buy the characters I read (stops me from literally buying everything I see). However, when I first saw the cover to #5 I was like I'M IN! But Tradd initially held onto it, and now it sells for £40K direct! I sure know how to pick em! And I never really stood a chance! Congrats to you both Tradd & Felix!
  8. I feel the answer to both questions are clearly a yes, as can be seen from the previous records of high priced art. Though I do agree with you, the actual art should be formost. 'First appearance art' does sell for a premium though (even from the artists themselves). I wonder how much this cover would have went for if the artwork was a lot better? You're right @Peter G, Spider- Gwen is also a derivative character. An icon gaining more and more popularity and cultural significance and she's...Oh wait! There's other black characters in the Marvel Universe that came long before Miles
  9. I've been holding back from posting this but now I can't resist! I must admit, I love your sense of humour!
  10. Did you read the article? The previous two records for the highest selling comic art were both first appearances of both Wolverine and X-23. Both iconic books. Yes, this high selling art is from an iconic book. Obviously not iconic to you mind. You seem to be from a generation that can easily disregard Mile Morales, which is absolutely fine. Comics and comic culture is moving on from your golden age though, this sale is a sure sign of that. Miles Morales has his own video game. I'm guessing you haven't played it, but I wonder how many younger than you have? I bought a sticker book f
  11. It's obviously less about the art and more about the significance of the key issue it's from. Everyone's entitled to their opinions I guess, but in my experience, prices only ever go one way. The big question is, what does this mean for the prices of art from key issues of more established characters?
  12. It was only a matter of time. Can you send me a link to the auction results? For the record, I'm a strictly pencil and ink guy myself but I can see that a majority of artists will be working digitally in the near future. Monoprints will become commonplace.
  13. If buying a popular piece at auction, expect to pay double of what you think it's worth.
  14. Undoubtedly. But then again, it already is no?
