Updated the pic for my Al Williamson Edgar Rice Burroughs Portfolio Plate: John Carter of Mars: The Warlord, yesterday. New picture allows clicking to zoom in, and the first one was too light. It didn't show how much the art really pops out at you. Still not quite as awesome as seeing it in person, but what're you going to do.  

I really love having this piece framed and on my wall. Owning it checks a major box for me. Link to the piece / my CAF is below. Hope you guys like taking a look at it. Being able to zoom it really adds to the online viewing experience I think.

Man that's terrifying! I love some pre / non - code horror.

apologies if this is old news but just saw this on IG

 

 

 

Questions I always had about this piece. What is OA and what is composed of stats? Is the Spiderman and the city backdrop the only OA?

From the heritage listing:


Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man #300 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1988).

Quote

 

All Spidey art and the top web are in india ink, while the lower web is a stat. The background elements (corner box, text, logo, the "300" pattern background, and cityscape) are all stats with some touch ups in ink and marker.

So that being said will Indian Ink fade over time? Will this age poorly when compared to contemporaries or those of the silver age?

India Ink is what you want on OA.  It doesn't fade.

Got it....I did read an article somewhere that was talking about some of Todd's earlier work not holding up because of some of the ink that was used. Not sure if it was Indian ink or something else.

Just added my first new art of the year to my CAF. Nine pieces, including a 1970s Toth splash, a swell Joe Kubert Enemy Ace page, a violent Bob Powell Cave Girl page, a first year Stan Lynde Rick O'Shay daily, plus Moldoff, Timm & more.

I really enjoyed Superman Secret Identity (by Busiek and Immonen) and gladly bought the issue 1 cover when I saw it for sale!

Art Day: Swashbucklers Saga Continues #2 and #2 covers by Butch Guice.

I am a huge fan of the original Swords of the Swashbucklers by Butch Guice and Bill Mantlo. They recently did a Kickstarter to help out Bill Mantlo with his medical expenses which also reprinted the original series and supported a new limited series Swashbucklers Saga Continues. While not as good as the original I enjoyed the series. Butch didnt do the interiors (sad) he did do a cover for each issue. I previous bought the covers to issues #1 and #4 and now I have issues #2 and #3 *#5 owned by someone else). So its great to add those to many other covers and interiors to the original series. Butch has still got it!
