Bad form to post artwork you no longer own? Here's a small but nice piece I regret selling:

Incredible stuff guys! Thank you everyone for posting. Definitely keep ‘em coming.

Can someone help shed some light on Mignola’s sketch prices? I know that he often attends cons with a pre drawn portfolio of sketches. It seems like his pencil Hellboy bust type sketches are about $300 (I’m assuming slightly less for non Hellboy related items across the board) and about $500 for the same bust style sketches with inks. Once we start moving towards full figures how much are we talking? Ditto for color pieces, (if that’s even a thing that happens)? Also, what size paper are we talking for these? How many pieces of art are typically for sale in his portfolio? 

Any information that would help me prep, would be great.

Thanks!!

It has been two years since I saw him but here you go. Usually has sketches but sometimes has pages/covers. Sketches are $300 and up with Hellboy more expensive. I don't recall them going over $600 or $700 in 2017 but mostly $300-$500 IIRC. No color  that I have ever seen. He had most of a portfolio full in 2017, so about 20+ or so,  weird sizes but relatively small, 6X9 or so, definitely smaller than 8.5x11.

He is very personalble and fun to talk to. I brought my artist daughter (she goes to Pratt for fine arts painting) and asked him a bunch of leading questions that he answered thoroughly. Like "you're skulls aren't really skulls, just an idea of what a skull is distilled to its'simpler parts...how do you know when to stop on something like that, how to distill it down?" Then we went and talked to John Leguizamo who was there promoting his GN Freak and she was more amazed that I could just ask him about his stand-up even though Mignola was the prize that day!!!

uhh, the march of time... The last time I encountered him was at Baltimore con 2013 and at that time he had non-Hellboy pieces for as little as $100-150 and pencil Hellboy head sketches for $250. That's where I picked up the Lobster Johnson 'claw guy' sketch I posted above for $100 (and its on 8.5"x11" paper).  I wish I had snapped up a few more pieces when I had the chance.  Anthony Snyder was behind me and cleaned out his portfolio and immediately sold pieces for double and triple Mignola's prices...

Anybody get anything from Heritage? Prices seemed reasonable for the pages. I should have bid. I thought they would go higher.

The pages I was looking at end today. The Shadow cover for $21K is a surprise to me.

Agreed. Especially with the Anung Page only going for a little more. Good luck tonight! 

Anybody got some Dracula pages to show?

I didn’t know Mike was there until I saw his photo on Anthony Snyder’s email newsletter. How was one to know he was selling art? Did he set up at a booth? Did one have to approach him?
