With some of the podcasts I wish there was a set of links for artists/books/general web resources that get mentioned.  Artists names are especially painful as my spelling is atrocious at the best of times!

I'll keep that in mind, but I never know ahead of time what will pop up. And afterward, as soon as we're done talking, I start forgetting (I'm about as old as Andy). So if there's anything in particular you want to know about, shoot me a PM/email or just ask here.

Next podcast is in the can (although I'm not sure if it will be the next episode released). We've talked about the documentary ART AND CRAFT here before; it's currently streaming on Amazon. Here's the trailer:

To get the most out of the next episode, I do recommend watching this film first. A sort of homework assignment. Hint: Art forgeries in the hobby are discussed. The doc is worth watching anyway, so if you haven't already seen it, check it out!

These are great Felix!

I like how Danzig said the Japanese artists don't sell their work because it would make them seem like failures.

I always wanted OA from Japan and now I know why there is so little available.

When do you think the next episode will be posted?

Sometime during the first two weeks of April. I'm doing C2E2, so will probably post after I return.

Next episode discusses comic art forgeries, focusing on one of the biggest scandals in the history of the OA hobby...with a special guest!

Felix, 

Is there another link perhaps that might work for those of us outside of the states?

Yes, original manga art is scarce. I was on the hunt for it for many years in the late-'90's/early '00s. Got to meet several mangaka and learned a lot.

Tying this into the art forgery topic, check out this article from a few years ago:

See if this one works:

 

Otherwise, just google "Art and Craft trailer". See the movie if you can!

That Lum is amazing! I read she used to do 300 pages a month!

I was in SF along time ago heading for a surf trip to Costa Rica and missed the Astro Boy art exhibit. I was standing outside the museum and had to go.

Am I the only one dying to know what the piece Felix bought for $6k that was the subject of the 2nd half of the podcast? :bigsmile:

I don't think it was mentioned, probably out of Felix being a classy (and savvy) guy, but color me intrigued.

Danzig expresses it well.    I can’t even get American artists of Japanese heritage to sell me stuff let alone actual Japanese.    This thing runs deep with them.

Richard Rae returns ?

Watched the documentary, highly enjoyable...thought I saw a fake Dr. Seuss sketch and heard something about fake Peanuts strips.

I could find stacks of cels cheap in Japan Town all the time so I thought maybe this stuff is all over Japan like trading cards.  xD
