Title: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: J3D1 on 16 May, 2010, 08:34:26 pm
Not sure if there is a thread like this going but I am always picking up original art and love seeing other peoples collections and latest pick ups.

I'll start her off with two pieces winging their way to me from Mr Dayglo:


JUDGE DREDD - 2000AD PROG 33 PG 10 - IAN GIBSON:

I am so jealous of all your art collections that it literally makes me sick!
To just imagine owning all those works of art and having them on display in custom frames...
And to think i passed on buying loads of SB Davis' artwork at Bristol comic-con many years back when most of it was going for about £20-30 as i was too embarrassed to go up to him.  :(

I'll get round to sticking what I have on Comicartfans before long (Colin Wilson on Rogue and Dredd, Cam on Rogue and The V.C.s, Gibson Robo-Hunter, this Strontium Dog page, Redondo Future Shock page on the way...)

I met Colin Wilson at the Melbourne Sopanova last month. He did an original Dredd illustration for me. I scanned it in, cleaned it up a bit and applied my own colours using Photoshop.

Nice Wilson sketch.

I love seeing original artwork from early 2000AD as well. I've got a couple of nice McMahon early Ro-Busters pages, it's like being a custodian of a piece of history.

I'll try and sort out some pictures.

Ahh so you did. Thanks for the comments. Glad everyone is liking my colours. Someday I need to finds a picture frame for the artwork. I also got Colin to sign a 2000AD issue. I think it's Prog 1175. I've also got to get that framed.

Agreed.

I think Royd handles all Colin's commissions and original art sales now? try and get in touch with him, he's on the forum.

When I got my commission I was lucky enough to catch Colin when he was waiting for Star Wars Invasion to kick in, I imagine he's pretty busy now. Though it's great to have a Star Wars story with one artist doing all the artwork.

Royd does indeed sell art on Colin's behalf and can also arrange for sketch commissions to be done, so drop him a line if you're interested folks.  (If you need his email address, just p.m. me).

I need to take some better pictures of the Colin Wilson pages I have, but here's the Dredd one (from the 1981 Sci-Fi Special):

I have always been a fan of Colin Wilsons beautiful art especially on JD but i do feel that he is a little bit underrated and never gets mentioned or name-dropped as much simply because he was not as prolific or featured as much as Ron Smith for example but in my mind he is up there with the Ron Smiths and Brian Bollands etc as i rate his work that highly.

I dont know very much about him either.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread

He's done a lot of work in Europe.

I am not exactly the most well read fan on the board but thanks for your pointers as its good to know he is still working in the business.I only know his work from reading the JD crime files in 1981 !

Plus he drew my favorite Future Shock in Prog 225.

Another couple of pages - one more Colin Wilson, one Jesus Redondo.

Redondo's one of those artists that I didn't appreciate that much as a kid (like Ron Smith, Casanovas, Ortiz, etc.) but absolutely love now.  Anyway, a Future Shock page from Prog 286:

I've purchased some original 2000ad artwork over the past few years, directly from artists or on ebay. I believe that the pieces bought from some of the artists are original as I have signed confirmation's that it is their work...but..there are a couple of pieces in particular I suspect could be scammed artwork and am interested in your views on both of these items. One is an apocalypse war double spread by Ezquerra and the other is a black and white Judge Death 2000ad cover by Frazer Irving. Any relevant info on any of this or related original toothy artwork would be much appreciated. Cheers

mac  W  -

I actually posted this about 4 years ago...meant to come back and check reply threads but got sidetracked somewhat. Again if any of you guys can help it would be appreciated. I can scan some of the artwork at home but I'd need to get the professionals to do the bigger stuff...any recommendations. Cheers Mac W

Yep - 28th January, 1984.

I did have to look that up.

Great, great page!

My collecting is slowing down, mainly because of the brain-melting cost of some of the pieces I've been looking at lately.  Hard to justify, despite how much I long for some of these pages...  What a horrible, lovely habit!  :D

What a fascinating thread!

I don't have any original comic artwork (although I do have the original artwork to an LP called 'Grotesque' by The Fall) but I do recall seeing some for sale in a poster shop near Piccadilly Circus in London about 10 years ago. All too expensive for me at the time but I remember there being a Carlos Ezquerra 2000AD cover for sale with the old curved 'Featuring Judge Dredd' logo. It seemed odd at the time that the text (logo, price, blurb, etc) had all been glued on by hand rather than being done on a computer.

Does anyone know what ever happened to the Judge Death Lives artwork? Has any of it ever turned up for sale?

Yup.  Some is still available, probably more tucked away to be released later.  Prices are very high for Bolland, and for Judge Death stuff especially so.

A page (the Peanut Park scene from JDL) went to $3,500-ish on eBay a week or so back (less than expected).  Joseph Melchior sells art on behalf of Brian, but those prices are crazy $15 up to 25K per page, as far as I know).  Check CAF.

but I remember there being a Carlos Ezquerra 2000AD cover for sale with the old curved 'Featuring Judge Dredd' logo. It seemed odd at the time that the text (logo, price, blurb, etc) had all been glued on by hand rather than being done on a computer.


Droids had to do everything by hand back in the 80's.

Although not out until May, seeing as this image has popped up on The Strangeness and Bleedingcool, I think it's safe to post this page now... (thanks to Wake for this one!)

The Bolland page has a faint pencil drawing of judge Fear on the back.
I keep fighting the compulsion to start collecting 2000ad art again but I know if I start it will be hard to stop. COD folks COD.

All this talk of The Lord Of Misrule gave me a hankering to have another page from it.
So here, courtesy of Dale, we go:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/Mangamax/0cl-1.jpg)

Not much going on, but its lovely, lovely work. That fine line work is SO fine, done by the looks of it in one go as there's no correction fluid at all.
Up close, it looks like Clint used a very, very fine airbrush splatter nib to achieve tiny mottling effects to the trees, brickwork and (very tiny here) the ends of the chains as they break.

Post by: Greg M. on 19 May, 2011, 09:11:00 pm
Cheers, lads. The one I was most excited to get hold of was the Protoid one (personal obsession with the character, he's the main protagonist in my favourite ever moment in comics, the decapitation of De Racine) but now that I have 'em in the flesh, the Mad Tommy one is the one with the greatest impact - it's somewhat bigger than the other two, and the inking is much bolder and not as subtle. It keeps reminding me of a line from one of the Titan collections where I think Ewins describes the art as 'Frank Miller meets Battle Picture Library'.

Think I might have said this to you before, ming, but that page is like the whole of Bad Company in microcosm - Danny writing in his diary, Kano revealing dark secrets, Thrax's unwholesome fantasies, 'regular' troops being afraid of Bad Company (and by extension highlighting how much Danny's changed), Wallbanger getting some particularly choice dialogue, Mad Tommy being mad... all you're missing is an actual Krool.

All being well, I too will have a new Bad Co. page to show off this weekend...

Yeah, I've got the cover of Prog 661, which is the Dead Man holding up his Dredd badge. For me, that was an all time classic Dredd moment and I'm thrilled to own that cover.

My other fave from a strip is Kev Walker's 'Judge Anderson Childhood's End' pages where a doctor gets his face skewered by a javelin trap. It actually made me grimace when I read it so it's great to own it (and the page before!)

Hi,

http://www.theartofcomics.com/
http://www.marcsilvestriart.com/

Does anyone know of any other online stores / artists selling (2000AD) original artwork ? Thanks.

Wow really surprised when I saw that art was by Trevor Hairsine. He's an artist that I've really lost touch with since he left 2000ad. He's gone for a real Hitch vibe there (for understandable reasons). Interesting to see an artist book the trend as as they got more experienced actually add more line and detail to their work.

Depends on youre google-fu, I guess... And what youre looking for. I see a lot of 'Not for sale' pages on that site. Also, there are a lot 'not-so-good' interior pages, and (almost ?) no covers from better known artists on better known titles... Oh well, to each his/her own, I guess.

Apart from the introductory episode which was basically just a big chase in flying craft where you never see the character*, I haven't read any Nemesis The Warlock either. I agree it's an interesting unique character design.

Oh Noes!  My secret's out!  Luckily, a strategically positioned loofah protects my modesty in most pics.  In my defence, I was young and needed the money.

That story and the other McMahon artwork in the 81 and 82 Dredd annuals is some of my favourite ever.

Amazing to see a complete story as good as that all in one place.

Glad it stayed together. It would be nice to see in an exhibition or something.

The close ups on CAF are very interesting.

Iain, don't forget to use the Imgur 'message board' links with the square brackets if you want the image to show up directly (or just paste the link and use the 'image' icon when you create the post.

yep, those first two JD annuals are mega classic's and a real favourites of mine. To have some art from them is frankly mind blowing.

perhaps rufus needs to do another artwork exhibition?

Tiny compared to the fullpages on show here, but this is probably my favourite of all my Carl Critchlow single panels - the swift kick to the nadgers to stop a problem dead perfectly summing up the humour of Dredd IMO

Just put it in sotrage when I got it and simply forgot I had it.

Nice stuff too... A Flint Dredd page and some Rufus Dredd at Christmas stuff and various sketches.

I'll be getting them framed up and on display in my new pad as soon as I get everything else sorted.

Pics to follow.

Excuse some of these pictures, some are a bit blurry and have weird reflections as I couldn't be bothered moving them to take the snaps.
This is what's on the walls at the moment and a couple of pics I already had on my photobucket.

Well I'll be, wasn't expecting that. I just gone and got myself an 40th B-Day present. I contacted Henry Flint last year and asked if he was doing commissions as my wife said she'd get me one for my 40th (tomorrow Sunday 5th). Alas he wasn't and so I was going to switch to Colin Wilson but couldn't sort that. At which point I drifted from the idea.

Then this came up and I thought what the heck, it'll no doubt go out of my price range but no harm in trying. Wasn't about today when it ended so put my final bid in this morning thinking I'd get gazumped last minute as so often happens. I didn't which is all a very long way around and about say I won this.

YAH ME!!!

No idea about the relative value of original art but then its worth what you want to pay so I'm so, so chuffed with this. An original, colour, Henry Flint Dredd... that's about as good as it gets in my book.

...now to persuade Deb my wife that it gets to join the ranks of on display art... I think tomorrow might be a good day to ask...

The seller, Romitaman, does seem to price his wares to the extreme, and as consequence, a lot goes unsolded. As much as i love Paul Chadwick's Concrete, i shant be paying the $2,000 asking price (WTF!?! remove a nought, then maybe) for the Concrete piece he has. Ridiculous.

here is another page i found .. 

Is your house like one of those that Kim and Aggie would go to Dale, but instead of mountains of waste and dog poo, is chock full of 2000ad art?   ;)

Most of my vintage stuff is long gone .... Large48 is worse than me , his house must be falling apart from the weight ..

And arrived too. I know going on about this is silly, when compared to some of the stuff that gets talked about here, but stuff it.

I BLOODY LOVE THIS PIECE.

As ever the cliche holds that photos just don't do it justice. Its immense and I couldn't be happier. One final (well until I do my feedback) thank you Steve for helping me wrap up my birthday weekend (lonnnggg) with a massive grin.

I'm also pleased to announce that it's already wall bound and got the public display approval straight away from my wife. Alas that means another piece (My Carl Critchlow which I'm very fond of) is away for now, but I'm going to pitch for more vertical real estate soon to sort that.

I've only got a few sketches from a UKCAC many years ago, but it's a nice wee batch; Yeowell Zenith, Fabry Bricktop, Mike Collins Ukko, Liam Sharp Chopper and a great Colin Wilson Blueberry.  Oh, and a pair of Dredd sketches Cam sent me a couple of years back.

I went to a guy's house a while back - he was auditioning to play bass in our band, which didn't happen, but he did have a page of Fabry Slaine on his wall. He nearly got in just on the basis of that alone.

Yeah, Redondo drew some hot girls as well, that's true. Very underrated artist, I always thought. Don't know if his style was a bit too classic for 2000ad but I always really enjoyed his take on Nemesis. And he made Purity hot too...

I've probably said it before, but I didn't appreciate Redondo's art much as a kid (the usual situation of being in awe of some of his contemporaries, rather than not actually liking his work).  I can't praise his work highly enough these days... a fabulous, underrated artist.  I'm lucky enough to have a couple of original pages (one Future Shock, one Return to Armageddon) and although they're not 'high end' pieces, I love 'em to bits.

Is there any word on a reprint for Return to Armageddon?

Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Colin YNWA on 26 February, 2012, 07:35:20 am
Yeah I'm a big fan of Redondo, very under rated artist. As for 'Return to Armageddon' aside from some reprints that surely has to be the most asked for reprint volume. Its slowly heading towards the top of my re-read list, all the talk about it is really making me look forward too it.

Having finally finished listening to the epic Pat Mills ECBT2K podcast, with the comments about Belardinelli not being the right artist for Black Hawk... Who could have done it better?  Black Hawk himself was always the least interesting character in that (Beelzebub was my favourite) and although Massimo drew fairly 'weak' human characters as times, I think no other artist could have done such a wonderful job with the various alien characters and otherworldly situations.

Just look at that Batak image above and tell me I'm wrong (or, preferably, right).

Final score - Mills 0 Ming 1.

Received these the other day from J3DI, and really happy with them too. Got some better scans for these over on CAF.
Just loved the Dead Man story, so im glad to finally have a page for the episode that appeared in Prog 661.
For those that have read it, youll know whats special about Prog 661.

Post by: hippynumber1 on 18 March, 2012, 01:49:44 pm
Revere was collected in its entirety in Extreme Edition #20, David - it's well worth hunting down a copy of that...
I'd guess he was given such a hard time when he was put on Stront; such a VERY different to approach to Ezquerra who had made the character his own, it was inevitable really. Revere is one of my all time favourite strips, massively under-rated by many imo...

Quick question, in the early days of 2000 AD, what dimensions was the art drawn at? Is it just a regular 11 X 16 sheet on its side, where you could draw two pages at once? EDIT: I guess that's just double page spreads. Still curious about what paper sizes were used.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Fatboydale on 01 April, 2012, 09:15:22 pm
not really a set size for british artwork , early artwork is much larger the standard 11x17 American  these pages are 26 x 16 for the dp and single page 16 x 14 , Simon Harrison art is 28 x 20 ???

Yeah, this one has me floored, really.  This is a perfect representation of a hugely important era for me - my dad died that year, and I clung to 2000AD like a rock... I pored over every detail of Kev's artwork, and early Nemesis has remained one of my absolute favourite things to come out of 2000AD.  I decided to aim for a page this year - didn't expect it to happen so soon, but prices for the art Kev was selling through The Illustration Cupboard quietly dropped 25% for a couple of weeks a while back, so I just had to jump.  Might be the only page I pick up for a long time (er...) but it's an insanely lovely bit of work and I am so chuffed to have this.

Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Frank on 26 April, 2012, 05:41:48 pm
Great investment, Ming. I had a similar experience to you with the death of my Dad turning 2000ad from simple entertainment to something I immersed myself in completely, and the level of detail on that page offers enough to keep you occupied for years to come.

O'Neil's artistry is extraordinary; even the type of line he employs in the shading on the human skin is subtly different from that on the alien flesh (i), and look at the intricate detail, the different weights of line he employs in the interlaced curves of the billowing sulphur around the edges of the page. Every reflective surface, every creased line in material is rendered with the kind of maddening detail that's only possible when the artist knows exactly what purpose each serves in the image as a whole.

The way O'Neil introduces motifs taken from his character design as part of the costumes, weapons and vehicles; as part of the set dressing; in the strip's panel design and graphics; and even the landscapes in which Nemesis and Torquemada fought each other, brilliantly realised Pat Mills's attempt to show not just two characters in conflict but the clash of two inimicable totalising ideologies.

Congratulations again, Ming, you're obviously a man of wealth and taste.


(i) Terminators: short and curved, Nemesis:longer and straighter, except where the negative space between the solid blacks of the ribcage echo the intricate curves of the smoke and fire that frames the image, drawing the reader's eye up and out towards to the central thrust of the image- the arc formed by Nem's sword, pointed muzzle, and the 2000ad logo.

Incredible stuff David, one of my all-time favourite pieces of comics art.  I actually remember the thrill of buying that very issue (after the fact) in the basement of The Diceman on Grafton Street, Dublin, in the early 80's, I can only imagine the thrill of actually owning and holding that cover.  O'Neill is always a master of design, but the sheer brilliance of the razor-sharp linework on that piece... I bet he was a happy droid when he signed off on that one.  Well done, Sir, and well-deserved.

Thanks, folks.  In no way was this bought as an investment; it's going up on the wall to be enjoyed, then will eventually pass along to the boys (they can decide for themselves who gets this and who gets the Cam Warlord cover when the time comes).  It's an honour to have such an iconic piece of artwork in the house, and this is made all the more special by the very strong personal association I formed with 2000AD from around this time, as well as rating early Nemesis above pretty much anything else before or since.  Anyway, as surrogate families go, I picked a good 'un.

Dale, do you have a website where you show off your collection? I'd love to know how many pieces you have and some of the stories behind how you've acquired them.

Also, no-one ever seems to mention how much is generally paid for original artwork - but I've got to ask, because this has to be right up there in Bisley territory (which seem to go for thousands).

Also, no-one ever seems to mention how much is generally paid for original artwork - but I've got to ask, because this has to be right up there in Bisley territory (which seem to go for thousands).

A lot of high-end stuff gets traded, which makes sense.  I know what the asking price was for the Bolland cover, and it was high but not as crazy as those for some Bisley art I can think of (the highest I can think of off the top of my head is about $87,000).

 :o

Anyway, regarding what people have in their collections and the sums paid for art, a lot of people are a bit cagey about these things and a lot of deals are done behind the scenes.  In my experience, it takes a bit of time and patience to see how things operate and there's a lot more information forthcoming in private conversations compared with what's made public.  It took me a while to figure out a best estimate of the going rate for certain types of art (and even now I might be way off); the main thing is what it's worth to you.

That's awseome in the true sense of the word Dale - hats aloft!

And regarding prices; I really like the fact no one mentions it on the thread as for me and my small collection, it's really about how much I like it, just as Ming says. You can find the prices pretty easily in any case - until I actually looked and bought some (admittedly more recent stuff, not in the 'classic' mould of O'Neill or Bolland, though still all aces), I always though it would be vastly out of my reach, but it wasn't. Nothing like it either, it's bloody great having a piece of art in your hands that you read in the Prog!

Post by: Mikey on 04 May, 2012, 05:15:19 pm
Over a few years actually. I bought the first one (My Name is Death page. Which I might get reframed with a black mount) in 2003 I think, last ones were the Flint ABC pages in *gulp* 2008. It's been ages! I've been drawn toward Mondo type prints more recently though, partly down to price and partly due to Mrs Mikey not really wanting all rooms to have 2000ad related stuff on the walls or covering shelves or every time she looks at me (not often, granted). I know ! Chicks! What can you do?

Some lovely pages there Mikey , i like Jock and Irving Death and all the Flint pages the best ....all of them really .

I will post some better photo's of the Bolland in the next few days ...

Yes as some have guess i traded some Vintage 2000ad included my McMahon fink dp , which hand on heart it hurt and i'm full of regret ....

As for prices for art it can vary depending on the artist and the character .... i asked an American how much was his Bolland Dredd  , his fucking reply was " if you have to ask , you cannot afford it "  .. got the twat back when his asked about my Watchmen pages ...

The asking price for this Bolland was $12,500 .

Thanks Dale, that is obviously a very important piece for you, the bits you want the most cost the most don't they!

Mikey, nice you have them in frames and up on the wall. Mine is all in a map cabinet.
I don't think my girlfriend realises just how much stuff I have so when we finally get a house together it'll be a nice surprise for her ;)

Yeah, there's some amazingly good art on show in here (and I don't mean mine).  It's a real treat to see people share their collections and enthusiasm for the art.  I know the vast majority of 2000AD art will never see the light of day, so I'd like to thank everyone who's posted stuff in here - great stuff.

Oh, and I have one more piece on the way...  :-[  Not really planned, but something I pondered a couple of years back resurfaced and it proved to be a hard one to turn down when the offer came.  Will hopefully have it in a week or so, anyway.

Well as I say, it was something that I nearly picked up before, so it's not like I fell off the wagon or anything.  I'm in denial, aren't I?  :lol:

As for clues...

Fairly recent (will be the most 'modern' bit of art I have apart from the recent McCarthy Dredd stuff): 2003
Not by an artist I have anything by.
Features just one character, and it's a minor classic, to me at least.
Closest thing I'll come to a Bolland piece, maybe.
'Smile'

Probably enough to give the game away; I can post a pic at some point anyway.

Mmmm,  all very mysterious. Cant think what it might be off hand - ill have to ponder at bit more. Though its always nice to see more 2000ad art going to people on here.
For me, should hopefully have another Dredd page coming next month - and double fingers crossed a nice Concrete piece, that i missed out on the first time round. But that one is far from definite.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 12 May, 2012, 03:53:12 pm

A recap, plus more clues:
+ Fairly recent (will be the most 'modern' bit of art I have apart from the recent McCarthy Dredd stuff): 2003
+ Not by an artist I have anything by.
+ Features just one character, and it's a minor classic, to me at least.
+ Closest thing I'll come to a Bolland piece, maybe.
+ 'Smile'
+ A cover, but not 2000AD, and not a regular one.

+ A variant cover... (Not sure how many of those there have been, and I don't even have a copy of the published version.)
+ Popped up on Pete's blog not long ago.
+ Seeing it might ring a bell if you're familiar with the works of Alan Moore.
...

Is that enough to go on?

Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Spikes on 12 May, 2012, 06:22:58 pm
Me too. The smile bit, and the Bolland reference, made me think of that cover - if of course weve guessed correctly. When you mentioned variant cover, i did for a brief brief second think it might be the Prog 1771 Tharg by McMahon -  :o, if you coulda pulled that one off!

As for mine, well hopefully it wont involve a lot of monkeying about to get it,  ;)

Post by: ming on 12 May, 2012, 06:37:29 pm
Heh, glad I provided some decent clues, anyway.  I love Frazer's take on Judge Death; second only to Bolland for me.  In fact, I'd maybe even go so far as to say his is the more terrifying rendition of all in many respects.  After becoming something of a parody of himself through overuse, I'm really happy to have nailed down a piece that presents Death in all his dark, twisted glory...

Monkey Business is one of my favourite McMahon Dredd stories, Iain (mainly due to the line of work I'm in)... Have seen a few pages kicking about but never jumped, for some reason.  Anyway, looking forward to hearing, and seeing, more.

Oh very nice - just grabbed the My name is Death trade off the shelf to flick through. Lovely art by Frazer Irving. Still a very unsettling story in places. The cover is from JD Megazine 211b, according to the gallery at the back.

Kind of.  Apart from the smell, and the applications.  Unless I screw up, in which case you'll all be puddles of ooze before you know it!

(Really, just evolutionary biology work; speciation and all that jazz.)

Looking forward to seeing the page(s) anyway!  I have my suspicions...

Just saw a Ron Smith Judge Child Quest DPS on eBay and looking at the close-ups, something struck me as odd… A couple of heads have been pasted on - nothing particularly strange there (even one of the images of Chopper on the page I have received the same treatment), but these don't seem to be by Ron Smith - look more like Robin Smith to me, or is it just my brain acting up?  I think Robin Smith was art editor at some point, but wasn't that later than this?

That whole McMahon / Kennedy Angel Gang pin-up thing on Pete's covers blog has me looking at all art twice these days to make sure I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing…  Er.

 I don't think your brain is acting up. Looking at the eye on the first head and the shading/brushwork on both, I'd definitely say the heads were Robin Smith and not Ron Smith. Ron's work shows a heavier (neater) brush stroke and cross hatch shading. Maybe they changed the heads to add to the drama, you can still see Ron's (helmeted) forward facing head under the first overlay. 
 Still, two artists for the price of one.

 Stew.

Yep, my thinking as well. Theres a good few bits of 2000ad art out there that was altered by the editorial team.
Now Ron was certainly no slouch when it came to producing standout characters/aliens and the rest of this episode is chock-a-block with them, so i guess the thought was that the DPS was maybe lacking that little bit of extra alien oomph, and was altered accordingly.
And now that attention has been draw to it - those two heads stick out like a sore thumb. Moral of the story; dont mess with the Ronster!
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 16 May, 2012, 08:34:22 pm
Yeah - it's not something I ever noticed on the printed version (recipe: take one sheet of bog-paper, reprint artwork with dodgy paste-ups, apply lashings of colour :D) but it does stand out here.  Strange that Ron didn't do the alterations himself, though.  He's a stickler!  (Not to mention fairly quick, and a consummate professional).

His commission work is incredible too - theres some very lucky people on here, and elsewhere.

Strange that Ron didn't do the alterations himself, though.  He's a stickler!  (Not to mention fairly quick, and a consummate professional).

I guess its probably all down to the fact it would be easier to "fix" the art there and then, instead of posting it back to the original artist to sort out, and then having to post it back again?

While I do have some really nice pieces I don't own any 2000AD art. The ultimate catch as far as I'm concerned has got to be the Judge Dredd vs. Judge Fear "GAZE INTO THE FIST OF DREDD!" If I remember correctly, Brian Bolland held on to that page. Can anyone confirm?
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Spikes on 20 May, 2012, 07:07:51 pm
I think that would be the ultimate catch for most 2000ad comic art collectors. Heck, comic art collectors full stop.
Id imagine it would also come with one hell of a price tag should it ever turn up.
Not sure who has it now. Brian held onto a few pages from this story, but put them up for sale (i think all went as well) the other year. The "gaze" page wasnt amongst them though.
If i understand right he sell his art via Joe Melchior - http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=9492

The last Judge Death Lives page I heard about (sold through Joe Melchior) was $15,000... That was a couple of years back, so they've probably gone up since then.  Having said that, I think a page (Peanut Park sequence) went on eBay for 'just' $4k last year, so not everyone (me included) is prepared to pay silly money, even for classic Bolland.

Great pages, Dale!  Simon Jacobs is definitely a bit underrated, but he certainly left his mark on 2000AD.  A shame he left comics, though - I heard last year that he's the rep for a guitar manufacturer these days (I forget which one) and very happy with it.

No, its a new arrival opaque, i received it last week. Its from a fellow 2000ad art collector, who's had it in his collection for a good few years (20+?). Bought from Forbidden Planet, i think. Still has the original pencilled price mark on the back. £25!

I know that stuff used to be so cheap. I remember looking at 3 pages of sky chariots by McMahon for £35 a page in Comic Showcase back in 1993. I should have bought it instead of those silly comics! >:(

All this talk of The Lord Of Misrule gave me a hankering to have another page from it.
So here, courtesy of Dale, we go:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/Mangamax/0cl-1.jpg)

Not much going on, but its lovely, lovely work. That fine line work is SO fine, done by the looks of it in one go as there's no correction fluid at all.
Up close, it looks like Clint used a very, very fine airbrush splatter nib to achieve tiny mottling effects to the trees, brickwork and (very tiny here) the ends of the chains as they break.

Oh, I really wish they would reprint all of these badly photocopied and coloured 1990s era 2000ad stories in black and white :(

That art is gorgeous!

I only really got into collecting the artwork properly in the early 2000's and on Ebay there was still a lot of (now) very very cheap artwork which I wish I could have bought but that was back when I was unemployed.
Still remember the covers for the Apocalypse War GN's going for a couple of hundred?, now I hate to think how much they would be worth.

Heh, one of the worst things about buying 'classic' original art these days is seeing the retro pricing scribbled on the back... I've got McMahon Dredd, Ewins Bad Co., etc. and the original vs. contemporary prices make you grind your teeth.  As classic 2000AD artists go, Belardinelli has probably risen least - undervalued and certainly underappreciated compared to many others.


Meanwhile, with a bit of luck I should be getting that Gibbons Rogue concept art this week (and the text for the original series pitch); a nice slice of history there...

I seen a Dillon Dredd page in a comic shop in the early 90s. It was £25. That was like 4 weeks cider and snouts them days, so there was no way I could get it!

I was unemployed when I saw all the very earliest stuff in the late 90's. I was already spending all my money on internet access by the minute.

Easy to wish you'd spent the money when you really didn't have it to spend but of course now you can't always accept paying the current market price for the same artwork now even if it's within your grasp.
Mind you some people on here seem to get large numbers of amazing pieces so I guess that is exactly what they are doing! Or maybe they finding rich old ladies who bought things for the grandchildren decades ago and forgot about them and who are now offering them for a pittance to some kindly gentleman? ;)

Prices these days are a bit crazy (especially to those who started collecting back in the day when it was all as cheap as chips) but good art is getting very scarce and remains much in demand (don't look at me like that).  The US market has driven up prices for Bolland, Bisley and O'Neill especially - far more than any other 2000AD alumni I can think of (Gibbons Watchmen and David Lloyd V for Vendetta are also exceptionally sought-after, with prices to match).  A lot of stuff just never really surfaces, though (Yeowell Zenith springs to mind) so it's hard to get a handle on some things.

As far as 'Classic' art goes, there are still relative bargains to be had but they're few and far between.  Anyway, the price tag is (and always has been) less important than what the art means to you personally.  Not that I really rank the art I have in this way, but I'm sure I have relatively modestly priced art that means more to me than stuff with a bigger price tag.  (The O'Neill Nemesis cover's something of an exception as it's an incredibly important piece of art for me and I paid accordingly - but at least the cash went direct to Kev O'Neill.)  Knowing what you like and sticking to it is the key - the narrower your focus, the easier it will be to ignore all the semi-decent art that inevitably passes under your nose.

Anyway, my art pick-ups are slowing significantly these days.  As Opaque said, you can never have enough of this stuff once you start collecting, but I've got enough of my boxes ticked that I could happily stop now.  Er.  Yes, yes, I know.

Just had a thought that I should probably mention this here: I have 2 pages (4 and 5) from a story called 'Mr Macabre' from prog 314 with art by a certain Mr Belardinelli. I'm desperately searching for the 4 pages I'm missing so I can complete the story. I've tried silver-acre, CAF, Dale Jackson and everywhere else I can think of but to no avail. Any and all help hunting these pages down would be greatly appreciated...

For some reason it's taken for ever to get around to scanning this page (it's mahoosive - required four scans on an A3 scanner just to fit it all in).

Please do a nosey chap a favour; measure it and give actual size dimensions for me?
Would be most kind of you!

I have seen Gibson originals but it was a long time ago. Am toying with the idea of drawing bigger myself y'see....

Yeah, that's the same size for my Gibson Robo-Hunter (the actual artwork, panel-border to panel border, comes in at 51.5 x 42cm).

I had a quick look for other outsized artwork I have:

Bad Company (first run): 43.5 x 36cm (on a 52 x 44cm page)
Colin Wilson Dredd (his first story): 49 x 36cm (56.5 x 40cm page; his Rogue stuff is along the same lines)

It's very flimsy paper. It's layout paper, 45gms and yes I do use felt tip pens and markers to ink.

I've used all sorts of different kinds of paper in the past, from paper costing £5 a page to tracing paper. This is just my latest phase of papery-ness.

The main reason I use this paper is that I like the feel of the paper when I'm drawing on it. No, that doesn't mean anything kinky. :) What I mean is, I pencil and ink each page on the pad (ie I don't remove a sheet of paper to draw on a more solid surface.), So It gives a slight cushioning effect when drawing. I like it's softness of touch.
The other reason I like using this paper is the fact that if a page goes completely wonky, then I can just pull it out of the page and tear it up without thinking "Crivvens I'm tearing up a fiver!", kinda thing. Because each sheet of paper is so cheap, then I am freed from being "precious" about every single bit of paper. It's been quite liberating for me artistically. I hope it's finally starting to show in the artwork.

Anyhoo, hope that's helped explain the oddity of the paper. :)

Cheers

Colin

Yeh, I like the fact that layout pad is transparent enough to trace over roughs, great for markers and is dirt cheap. Have often thought it would be good to develop a marker style so I could work that way. Not crazy about working with markers though!

How you manage to 'pencil' on layout pad I don't know!? You must have a very light touch Colin! Damn stuff tears if you breath too heavily over it.....!  :)

I personally cant draw for toffee, and i have a limited understanding of the artistic process, but reading Colin's comments, its an interesting glimpse into that process, and how things like, different papers/pen's etc, can help 'free up' an artist.

I've a nice new shiny mobile phone with camera (my first mobile phone, I've held out a long time) So here's a splurge of shots of some of the 2000ad originals I've collected over the years.

Classic Colin MacNeil artwork

Just my opinion but I happen to think this page and the story 'Judge Death Lives' is one of the finest comic book story sequences I've ever seen - of any comic. That is a wonderful page of work.

Seconded. Now, for me, when it comes to who is the definitive Dredd artist, im solidly with the McMahon block, but im also firmly of the opinion that what Brian produced on this, represents THE best art ever on a Dredd story. Congrats on owning this, Alex.

If I could have any page of Mike McMahon's art it would have been from the Judge Child Quest.
Monkey Business at Charles Darwin Block is a close second though. Picked this one up around the same time as the Bolland page in the mid 90's

Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 05 August, 2012, 06:01:55 pm
I find the older artwork to be totally 'done'. As in what you see is it. The lines are exactly as you see in the prog. I guess slightly easier when you are talking about only publishing in black and white though. Nothing wrong with that atall (especially such an epic story as those two) just that there is a difference.

Modern artwork when you see it is often multi-layered and more complicated or involved (and with the consequence that the quality is often not shown off in print) but even when it's black and white it seems very different when you see the real thing compared to the print.

Owning original artwork gets to show you exactly what the artists are capable of. I know I've been surprised at the exquisite quality of the work when a new piece arrives compared to what I saw in 2000ad/Megazine :)

I think so too. Those two artists couldn't be more different, or bettered. Wonderful work and I couldn't get enough of it back in the day. Hats off to the editors who were crazy enough to allow 2000AD artists to take things in so many unique directions.

So this is an original page I bought from Barry Kitson at a comic convention in Seattle in 2009.

(http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/6024/p1010946i.jpg)

I brought an old Judge Anderson oversized graphic novel for him to sign, and we started talking about 2000 AD. He then showed me some original pages he had for sale (which I really hadn’t anticipated) and they were of fantastic quality (and price) and I was more than thrilled to pick this page up. Thinking I was smart, I happily agreed to pay full price under the condition he did “a quick doodle” in my sketch book that I had been getting many comic artists to draw in. He being busy at the time, he asked if I could leave my sketch book with him overnight and pick it up the next day. What I hadn’t realized at the time was that if you buy an original page from Barry, he gives you a free sketch anyway. So much for my bargaining skills. Anyway, the next day I picked up my book and was absolutely stunned at what he did.

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Barry Kitson:

(http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/3748/p1010948i.jpg)

For comparison, this “quick doodle” was done by Jimmy Palmiotti (who inked some of the DC Judge Dredd comics) and this is the norm of what you get from comic artists at conventions for free. Which are great, don’t get me wrong, the point being Barry really went all out with his “quick doodle” for me.

(http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/4716/p1010947j.jpg)

The sketch Barry did for me really is probably my most prized piece of Judge Dredd memorabilia, followed closely by the original comic page drawn by him. If I start going to conventions again, I will absolutely try to commission an original piece from an artist (one hopefully from Barry) or try to buy more original pages.

Ron Smith is one of my fave-artists on Dredd, seeing the art up close makes you understand what a master he is. It's a fun page to watch too I think, a little short story on its own  :)

Ron is one of those artists who's work does seem to shine on the original art board. Most art does, but some stuff just seems to reveal a greater ratio of goodness than others when seen in the flesh as opposed to print. Great page.

That catalogue must be the most astonishing thing. A whole world of 'if onlys' for so many people. Worst of it is the artist will often have sold their stuff at these sort of low prices and thus don't reap the benefit of their art reaching a value closer to their worth as it is these days.

Wow! Good to see that page in its original, I liked that  :)
So what's the story on Aaagh? Is Ian Senior still selling art? Where did he get all this wonderful stuff?
Maybe I can donate the catalogue to the Cellar of Dredd and CF can put it up on the blog, that would be fun!

Think Ian bought a lot of his stuff from places like forbidden planet, though he also bought direct from the artists.
When we met to do a deal for my Pin-Boing pages, he told me he had gotten these from Mick himself in the early 90's.
He sold a lot of his remaining pages last year, i think.
Though he said he was keeping some of his favourites pieces for himself. He's just uploaded some very nice 2000ad pieces onto his CAF gallery, though these arent for sale - as yet. He still sells (he has two shops on E-Bay, those Rogue trooper concepts/prelims that Ming bought, were his).

Dredd being a c*nt...by Brendan McCarthy!   :lol:

Oo-oo-ooh! One of my favourite annual stories ever. The full page (watercolour?) image of Dredd being blasted from his bike in that strip seems to get (loosely) quoted by MacNeil, in an equivalent scene in America.

I think the work McCarthy/Ewins/Riot did on their annual story collaborations, and John Higgins's unbelievable Last of the Bad Guys in the same year's Dredd annual, must have been instrumental in convincing Tharg to accommodate painted art in the prog.

If you manage to get your hands on a page from that McCarthy annual story where Dredd gets dosed with a hallucinogen, I'll be properly jealous.

Post by: hippynumber1 on 26 August, 2012, 09:51:28 pm
If I ever found one of those splash pages I think they'd be well out of my price range! I know what you mean though, McCarthy painted (or otherwise) Dredd should be on everyone's want list. The colour and detail (wherever he decides to put a shoulder pad) are just incredible.

Always nice to see more McCarthy!  I noticed the comment about the Ewins / Riot credit on CAF; the more I look at this page the more it looks like Tony Riot but then I'm probably looking too hard!   :crazy:

She Devils is a great story (then again, I can't think of a McCarthy Dredd I don't love to bits) and I was tempted to jump at this one myself.  Only the probability of the wrong-shoulder-pad business driving me insane put me off... :D

Great page, anyway!

Post by: hippynumber1 on 27 August, 2012, 04:27:55 pm
It's a reverse angle looking in the mirror GRUDDAMNIT!  :lol:

Like I said on CAF, it's credited as McCarthy, Riot, Ewins but isn't clear on how the art chores were split which makes me think that they didn't all work on every page. If you flick through the story the Ewins bits are clear (to my eye anyway). That said, McCarthy could have pencilled, Ewins inked, Riot painted each page. Ultimately, there are only three people who really know! In the meantime, this looks pure McCarthy to me and I'm sticking to that!

I don't think it's been on the blog but it's similar to the pencils he showed for a commission earlier in the year.  There are a lot of small differences (subtle details like the badge and eagle designs as well as the main pose) and I bloody love it!

The page number at bottom right probably dates from the time the story was included in the Titan reprints (I think there's the same on a Talbot Nemesis page I have).  Anyway, that Starborn Thing page looks legit to me but it's not that easy to judge from that pic.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Slad on 20 September, 2012, 04:00:59 pm
Ah ...thanks for that. I wondered what the numbers were.
It's a story I really like, by an artist I really admire... her story sounded legit and I'm ok with a little page yellowing (showing age).
Do people fake these? I didn't think it was mainstream enough for people to fake them.
All these things contributed to me agreeing to pay what she wanted.

I will find out tomorrow  :-\

Anyway, that Starborn Thing page looks legit to me but it's not that easy to judge from that pic.

I think it is. Look at the bottom two speech balloons -- the one furthest right is the same colour as the rest of the page because it's on white space, meaning that Tom could draw the balloon and lettering straight onto the artwork.* The one on the left is whiter than the rest of the page because it's placed over the artwork, meaning that the balloon had to be created on a separate piece of paper (almost certainly a different paper stock) and stuck down onto the art. If it was a bromide, the balloons would all be the same colour as the art because it would all be a single sheet of paper.

Cheers

Jim

*Or, if it is done on a separate piece of paper, it's likely a lighter paper stock, since there's no artwork underneath to bleed through.

I dont think its a case of faking, its just that sellers can be a bit 'vague' with their descriptions, sometimes.
Still a nice page that - and dont forget to post photos/scans of it, on here, when you get it.

simple way of checking is look on the back of the art , it should have the prog number and the reduction size and stamped ....

This still does not mean its original art , could be a stat ( photo reprinted ) ect ....Carlos work is rare with Stat ...

A lovely page indeed at a bargain price! I'd have loved the chance to have a bid on it - Starborn Thing was the Dredd story that was running when I came back to 2000AD after a couple of years away so I have some fondness for it...

Does any body have the original Burger wars artwork from the cursed earth story. I believe that the artwork will never see the light of day again due to copywrite. Have them in the old comics just wondered if anyone had them as its a shame nice bit of artwork.

Im totally blown away - all bit of a dream come true, TBH.
The word from Mick, for those on here waiting for their commissions, is that he has a few more to pencil, then its onto the inking.




Does any body have the original Burger wars artwork from the cursed earth story.

As Ming says, i am lucky enough to have a couple of the Burger Wars pages, you can click on this link HERE (http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryRoom.asp?GSub=101884)

And you might wanna check out this guys CAF gallery as well - HERE (http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=442482&GSub=5621) as he has some incredible pieces from those episodes, on show.

I got Nemisis frames, never got round to framing the ABC Warriors  :-[

The third one is odd as the image at the top appears to have folded/bunched up the backing somehow  :|

I've been after a Dredd cover for ages and end up with two Tharg ones.

See you live in a different world than me, a world of such vast scope and scale that I can barely even imagine it.

I've long wanted a Tharg page let alone cover, preferably by Carlos or Eric Bradbury. There was one on eBay for ages that I looked at longingly for an age, but at over £100 I was struggling to justify the cost. I can only roll up into a tight bitter ball of jealous rage and scream wild, inhuman curses in jealousy at that cover.

I'm sure I'll get over it...

...eventually.

My experience in this art malarky is you have to start off small fry and work your way up.
Only way us working class folk can get anyway, time and effort it takes a lot!

I nearly went for that page but with having the tharg cover I felt like it was backtracking on a Tharg piece I was happy with. Limited wall space meaning I need to be more selective these days.

Cheap as chips it went for too.

I'd love to find one page of Henry Flint's "Deadlock" - I bought two of a three page sequence from him that I'd previously adapted into a short animation at Dreddcon in about 2002/3 (?). He'd sold the third that day, it featured the character The Accountant. I've always wondered if it was someone from this board who bought it.

Brilliant! In the absence of Charles Saatchi saving and archiving these for the nation, I'm happy these are going to a good home, Jack. Well done for getting a page that's so funny, and which features one of my all-time favourite one-off characters, Ocks. If we ever saw him bustin' heads back on the streets of The Big Meg, I can't remember it; but I imagine he'd be like one of James Ellroy's violent bull cops.

Beautiful pages, congratulations.

Ocks also appeared in Shanty Town, where he lost an arm, and Gulag, where he met his end!  I think he taught at the Academy in between, possibly in Silver's old chair.

Is there any chance he was actually only caught in nets by aliens and placed in suspended animation? That would be good.

No, not on Artdroids, and secret stash? Well, dunno about that, but i think he has a couple left. If your interested, then drop him a line. He dont bite.

And talking of Mr Dayglo, this page was unfortunatley delayed (recieved today!), but he pulled out all the stops to ensure it arrived ASAP. Many thanks Rufus, your a star!
So one more then, and thats me done,  ;) The very first appearence of War Marshal 'mad dog' Kazan.

Just saw a Ron Smith Judge Child Quest DPS on eBay and looking at the close-ups, something struck me as odd… A couple of heads have been pasted on - nothing particularly strange there (even one of the images of Chopper on the page I have received the same treatment), but these don't seem to be by Ron Smith - look more like Robin Smith to me, or is it just my brain acting up?  I think Robin Smith was art editor at some point, but wasn't that later than this?

With all things Block Mania/Apocalypse War related at the fore, i was having a re-read last night, and this panel has always struck me as odd. More Robin Smith tampering? Its not Ron Smith art, thats for sure.

my all-time favourite one-off characters, Ocks. If we ever saw him bustin' heads back on the streets of The Big Meg, I can't remember it; but I imagine he'd be like one of James Ellroy's violent bull cops.

The gaps in my prog collection mean i cant be certain, but i think Ocks may no longer be with us,  :'(
And thanks for the kind words Sauchie, glad you like the pages!
Theres some great guys on this thread, doing a sterling job for the archives. Just happy to be doing my bit.

Didn't Ocks first appear in the line up of judges being briefed by Cal in The Day the Law Died?...last I recall he lost an arm in battle in a shanty outside MC1 (drawn by Ron Smith)...apologies if you have covered this.

Finally got my hands on those Hicklenton pages. Took some quick snaps. I'll really have to wait for some daylight to get better ones, they're absolutely incredible pages and these photos do them no justice. There's a lot of pasting of different artwork, especially page 49.

Superb Hicklenton pages - his take on Torque really emphasised the sordid nature of the character, which Pat was also increasingly hinting at (not that it was ever in doubt.) I know exactly what you mean about photos not doing them justice - I own the art for a complete episode of 'Deathbringer' and the level of fine detail is phenomenal.

That was one of the two pages he sent me via email when I wasn't sure what other artwork he had. Almost fell off my seat when I saw what it was! Actually, that's a pretty calm reaction, my brain almost exploded.

I literally cannot put into words how amazing it is in person. There's so much going on.

The sheer torment Hicklenton captures in Torquemada's eyes on that last page. Genius.

I always remember that being one of the images which really stuck with me when first reading it as a kid. All those flies in there, the joints melted closed - makes you skin crawl!

Ah, I've seen your Deathbringer pages over on COF, they're sublime - that splash of Purity is really something else.

You'd really  need to photograph the pages in tiny segments to try and show the detail. I'm tempted to bring them into work and scan them up on the big flatbed scanners.

Ah yeah, I posted a pic of page 57 a good while ago, apologies for any confusion. Just thought I'd put them all in one post together :)

Just for posterity sake, that page also came from the same stall in Canterbury. So all of these pages went from John's dad -> the two sellers I bought them from and that's it.

I dug out my Best of 2000AD from 94 which had the whole story printed in it. Pages 57 and 58 are side by side, kind of made me want to get the two of them framed like that together! :)

A quick question for the users on this thread; as a neo-novice collector of original art / sketches / art prints etc. I was wondering if any of you could recommend a decent folio / folder for holding the art in?
Ebay has resulted in bupkiss.
Would help if the supplier is located in Eire, as postage fees are extortionate these days!

Theres some nice fake leather looking ones out there. Spend good money on the wallets as the last thing you want is for the image to transfer. Forget the material now. Ming will know as he was looking into it.

Hello,
I'm not 100% sure if this is the correct place to post this , but it seems the most obvious. My apologies if I erred.
I'll be at the Thoughtbubble festival next weekend, as I'm hoping many of you will. I'll be at table #172 in the New Dock Hall. Come and say hi.
I'll be trying to sell a lot of artwork that I will have brought with me across the Atlantic. Among witch will be 2 Nikolai Dante splash pages and 2 covers. I don't sell many covers or splashes , so this is a bit exceptional. I've been putting them up on my blog, so you can see what's on offer.

I buy my folders from Staples - there not too dear, and are very strudy. They come in all sizes, catering for 2000ad (older) interior page to DPS sizes, but not sure if they have branches over in the Republic?

Congratulations, dale. Thirteen year old me spent long hours trying to copy those pages, and concluded that Bisley must have been drawing everything on A1 (like Fabry) to get it to look so perfect - especially since he said he drew that series with really cheap disposable pens. If thirteen year old me could have seen how great those pages look in the flesh he would have been sick. For the sake of thirteen year old me, are those pages A2 or A3?

One of the things you learn when collecting original 2000ad art, is that some of it is absolutely mahoosive.
The largest pages i have are from the Dead Man (which, if ive got my sizes right, are just slightly over A2), and there large enough!

A page at A1, would be unreal.

Meanwhile... Brendan McCarthy, Zaucer of Zilk - minus the psychedelic digital jiggery-pokery.  I've got a B&W page to add later.

(http://i.imgur.com/w3M70.jpg)

And now quoted for the three time, so it must be good! Congrats Ming, thats a very sweet looking page! No doubt its now up on CAF as well, so ill have a looksee in a bit.

Nice to see all this good stuff continue to be posted on here.
Hope i can add summat soon - im getting withdrawal symptoms!

Tell me about it! Every time I look at this thread I immediately fly off to ebay and start searching. As a result, my framing money gets spent on more art - which once it arrives, is stored in a box.

Have to seriously cut the credit card in half and start using the money to get stuff up on the walls.

Yeah, was lucky and got them at the charity auctions at Bristol all those years ago!

Funnily enough I don't have that many original Tooth art, many sketches, but the big pieces are things like Hellblazer by Will Simpson, Asterix by Glenn Fabry, things like that but that doesn't fit this thread does it?

Yeah - and I'd love to see more of Colin's work from before he started on 2000AD; there's not much of it about but what I've seen was amazing.  His first 2000AD work was phenomenal (the Dredd page by Colin that I have is from his first commissioned story, although some Future Shocks saw print first) and he just go better and better...  Personally, I like the stripped-back style a little less than the earlier work but he's still a fantastic artist.

I had a chat to the bloke at Cinebooks at Leeds and he was saying that they are working on getting the rights to Blueberry. He didn't say too much more, but it would be so exciting to see a new series of these coming out and were better than Cinebooks.

Yeah, Into the Shadow of the Sun is definitely one that needs translating and reprinting... I've got vol.1 (Rael) and would love to read the rest of the story.  Colin mentioned a reprint / translation was something he was hoping to discuss with the original publishers, so I'll ask him if there's any news next time I'm in touch.

For anyone interested, Rael is easy to get via eBay...

And to Mr Adlard for a nice touch of personalising ...
(http://IMG_0552.JPG)

On the point of Mr Wilson.  Always loved Rael and been looking for the last two parts for years.  Would love to see them translated but would settle for the French and put aside any prejudices.  For my money some of his best work outside of his Rogue Trooper stuff (which for my money was always some of the best).

So pleased to see this sketch by Colin Wilson. He is one of my favourite artists. I remember doing an art project where I tried to copy a Rogue Trooper's story illustrated by this gifted art droid. I loved the dynamic nature of his inking which looked to me as if it were done quickly and skillfully with a brush.

If it's anywhere near as addictive as collecting comics then I will have to tread carefully!  Think I will have to settle for a few choice bits of tooth history.  Gutted that the recent Ezquerra cover on ebay (prof 250 I think) went as high as it did (£1200+ ) as would dearly love a piece of that Gentleman's work!

That was a lovely cover (featuring the East Meg Diktatorat) so not suprised it went for that amount. Certainly vintage 2000ad art doesnt come cheap.
So, expensive as well as addictive!

If your after an Ezquerra piece then you could message Rufus Dayglo via his Artdroids (http://www.artdroids.co.uk/) site.
He's often selling nice stuff.

Stunning Kevin O'Neill work. I'd be interested to know how much the Tube Warrior cover sold for.

Just over £2k, if I remember right.  It was cheaper than the other covers anyway (mine included, although when I factor in the discount I got I paid less than that).

These are all being sold on behalf of Kev O'Neill, so most of the cash goes to him rather than the dealer - that's part of the reason I was willing to fork out a hefty chunk of cash (the other part being the glorious artwork that I've been in love with since I was a kid).

As for condition - as mint as they get from this period.  These are all bits of art that Kev has held onto until now.  I posted pics of my cover (Prog 230) some pages back, but it's here with some close-ups if anyone wants to take a look:

If it helps (and it won't) I'm always disappointed with my photos of my artwork.  I've recently fluttered my eye lashes at one of the admin ladies where I work and she is kindly scanning the smaller (A4) pieces for me and, I would suggest, that's the way to go.  I'm considering investing in one of the 'wand'scanners to capture the larger pieces. Has anyone used one of those?
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 11 January, 2013, 12:03:02 pm
Scanning is definitely the best way forward, but any old crappy photos will do!  I've got access to a decent scanner at work (A3) that just emails me pdfs - most pieces of older art have to be scanned in two sections, some require even more scans to get complete coverage (I think we've discussed mahoosive art earlier in this thread) then a bit of jiggery-pokery to crop and assemble the images.

The main reason I scan stuff is the level of detail it shows up - it's nice to be able to do justice to the art, as far as I'm able.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 11 January, 2013, 12:32:41 pm
Yeah looking at my past photos (on the 2000ad Artwork gallery) they aren't too great.
I've got one of those great scanners that send pdf's at work but I don't want to lug all my artwork to work and back so I might have to just take some more photos. It's getting a uniform light source so you don't get flash or sun obscurring the artwork. But maybe it would be worth bringing them in sometime and just get them done.

The Robohunter pieces would certainly need a couple of scans I agree!
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Dunk! on 11 January, 2013, 12:47:39 pm
I think scanning is the way to go then.
Fear I'll have to take the Mahossive Halo Book 3 pages to a professional to do them justice.

On a related note what are folks take on reducing down the surround to any original artwork they own?
I mean in the case of having them mounted, or maybe just for ease of storage.

Some of my Gibson pages have acres of white paper space around them and when talking to a professional framer recently the option came up to reduce them down.

Sacrilege?

Takes something away?

Practical?

Wondered what people with collections thought.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: hippynumber1 on 11 January, 2013, 01:02:43 pm
It's difficult isn't it!  I must confess to trimming a couple of pieces to get them to fit in my 'early days' but wouldn't dream of it now! I love all the pencil notes and bleed into the margins so, even early on, wouldn't have trimmed those but I shouldn't think it would reduce value..?
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 11 January, 2013, 01:04:45 pm
I store my artwork in a large map plan chest so storage size isn't an issue but if you are getting them professionally mounted then trimming the large white spaces on a lot of the Gibson artwork is a necessity from the pieces I have.
But for others I'd rather have a larger frame and mount the artwork on a plain background as the 'outline' of the page gives it something I think, rather than a pristine edged border.
One example of this for me would be my Colin MacNeil Devlin pages. Beautifully done and you have the uneven edges where the lines of the page boundary are drawn over the artwork. They would look good either way but I think it looks nice as it is.

My problem is generally that I have so much that I could never hope to get anymore than a small amount framed. I'd like some form of more secure storage though (in terms of what it is in inside the drawers) as it's mainly loose or in the bags they came in. You can't look at them very easily like that.
Might be worth getting my Halo pages done in proper frames when I finally get my own house though :P

Yes i also originally had (bad!) photos up on CAF, but its nearly impossible to get a good shot, and really you want to show the art off as best you can.
Most of my art now is direct scans, - even managed to get a direct scan of my mahoosive Apoc War DPS over xmas, which is summat i thought id struggle to ever get.
The best route, as has been mentioned opaque, is to find an A3 scanner with the email function, so it may be worth taking your pieces to work and doing it that way. It may be a bit of a fuss to do that but it really does show off the art the best.

As for trimming art for framing purposes, well i guess i can kinda see why you'd maybe need to do that sometimes, but i wouldnt dream of having it done. But thats just my personal opinion.

There was a mini trend for this (colouring in, that is - not cutting out panels) in the States in the early 80's - i think.
Original black and white Marvel comic art - stuff like pages from the original movie adaptation of Star Wars - amongst other stuff, was coloured in by somebody.

Top purchases!

Controversial question. Is the Bolland signed in red?

My Bolland page is signed in red; a phase he went through or something he always does/did?

Signed in pen means it was a legit sale, unsigned means it may have slipped out during the production process. He wrote about it in "The Art of Brian Bolland" book. He reckons there were about 110 pages never returned to him and he considers them stolen.

He doesn't mince his words. "All the pages that were returned to me and sold were signed by me. If you own one without my signature it was stolen and I want it back."

After owning many Bolland pages , i kinda know that and it is common knowledge ..... but there has been a few cases of where he didn't sign after selling them .... i had one such cover .... it was sold to another artist/ collector and pass around a few times .... i know it was paid for and the history ....

No i'm saying Bolland has sold artwork and forgot to sign the artwork , otherwise he would get these back , yes he did have pages stolen back in the 80's .....

What i mean , not all Bolland artwork that has no signature is stolen , if you get offered a page , it would be best to ask directly Brian , not that he ever answers emails ....

If you are reasonably certain the art is among the many pages stolen/lost/stored under a leaking tap (...that was one story) you could mention it on his blog. He has posted on the subject, so I'm pretty sure that would get a reaction.

Didn't know about this issue myself, it makes for really interesting (and saddening!) reading. Must be absolutely awful to have produced pages to such a high and legendary standard and just not knowing where they are.

From the looks of things, I don't think Bolland even knows himself which pages are missing. Apparently he can't locate this page now. (if I created something like this and couldn't locate it I'd be crying myself to sleep every night until it was found!)

There's way too much art not listed on CAF to make that worthwhile, to be honest.  Either people not aware, not interested or just determined to keep what they have out of the public eye.  Those missing Bolland pages are never going to surface and I doubt we'll ever really know what still exists and what's vanished without trace.

And no, I don't think I'd buy an unsigned or questionable page; too much respect for the creators for that.

In the excellent book the Art of Brian Bolland  (recommended reading) Brian recounts a tale from the late 70s where he went to the Daily Express office and bought some Jeff Hawke artwork from a couple of flunkies that had access to the store room where all the strip art was left. And the irony that a few years later a similar thing would be done to his art.

There was a really nice page from Dead Man got snapped up yesterday. I was about to up my bid to about £70 on it after having been ahead in the, up to then, lacklustre chase, in the last few minutes. I still expected to be snipped at the last moment, but it was worth a punt I figured. Alas by the time I got to it it'd already got to over £80 and then the action really took off. Even left behind in the dust as I was, it was worth watching the end as it got to over £130.

Anybody here lucky enough to win it?

It went for about the right money, i think. Most DM pages go for around the hundred-ish mark.

Some nice pieces - Redondo Nemesis etc still up for grabs on E-bay at the moment.

Sorry Colin, that was me. Yeah, I got it for slightly less than the last Dead Man I bought (that was about 150 I think) - but significantly more than several pages I bought about a decade ago, which were about 15 quid each. I must have about 7 or 8 Dead Man interior pages now (not all up on CAF yet) plus the cover to 652.

Nowt to say sorry for Greg, well done for winning it. I was just amazed that it stayed at around £60 for so long. Long before the end (in terms of bids if not time) it'd slipped out of my reach (which after this is in danger of going up, as it was such a tempting piece!) and really glad someone here got it.

I love the way that page in particular feels so like a western (the whole thing is of course, but that page so specifically), something John Ridgway does so well. It looks like its come straight out of Shane, the running through cornfield almost being Twainesque. Bloody great page so chuffed for you.

Cheers, Colin - yeah, that cornfield panel really struck a chord with me too. A lad and his dog, sneaking off for adventure, still full of youthful enthusiasm: how could it possibly go wrong?

For those keeping crowbar-antic-related score, I got the Bad Company page that was up on ebay recently too. And the 'Deathtrap Dungeon' picture. I wasn't buying much original art last year - after getting hold of my 'holy grail' page from Bad Company II, the bug stopped biting for a while, and I felt content with my lot. But just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in... there's been a lot of great stuff on ebay alone in the last month.

Okay can I ask a question (Dale please look away now). I was on the verge (literally I was two button clicks away) from bidding on one of Dale's pieces over on eBay - the Paul Marshal, Tyranny Rex page BUT and here's the thing the reason I was going to go for it was I love me some John Smith and I do like Tyranny and I do like Paul Marshal BUT I'm buying it cos its piece I like and can easily afford and its there, now available to me.

Now here's the thing I've seen some of the stuff some of you fellas get and while I'm not in your league yet, I seem to be getting he bug (I was warned). I got a Dante page and not just any, one I really wanted. I missed out on the really nice Dead Man page, which was a bit special. So I'm thinking maybe I could up my game a little and start looking for a wish list of stuff, (building up to getting an Old One Eye Page before I die!) rather than just going for bits I like and can afford that turn up.

So I'm looking at the Tyranny page (its a nice page), but I'd rather pay a more for a Jim Baikie 'New Statemen' page. So I stopped myself bidding (for now Dale I do like the page) and did a search, no luck. So before I go any further, do any of you fellas know if Jim Baikie New Statesmen pages ever come up and what I might expect to pay for one? Just want to know if I'm wasting my time holding out for 'Holy Grail' pages (either availability or cost) and should go for nice next best things?

Post by: hippynumber1 on 25 January, 2013, 07:32:23 pm
In short I'd say go for pages that you like when you can afford them! You'll quickly find your 'price' escalating as your collection increases and the more boxes you tick, the easier it'll be to ignore incidental pages. Start small and build! That seems to be the way it's worked for me anyway... I've never seen a 'New Statesmen' page crop up anywhere and there don't appear to be any on CAF either but they must be out there somewhere...
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 25 January, 2013, 07:32:51 pm
Colin, it sounds like you've got your head on straight... It's hard to focus your sights on particular pieces and to ignore cheap-and-available stuff, especially with limited funds, but I think it's something that will really pay off in the long run.  I'd sooner have a handful of pages I really love than shedloads of so-so stuff that I have no time to enjoy or space to display.  (As it is I'm nearing the end of my own collecting odyssey, I think.)

Get yourself a wishlist and start putting out feelers in the collecting community (CAF, people here and Wake's site are a good start) to try and figure out how the land lies regarding the things you're aiming at.  Some people will play cards very close to their chest but on the whole people are helpful and enthusiastic (at least that's been my experience).  Prioritise what you want and prepare to wait; gives a chance to build up funds anyway (another reason to avoid impulse-buys of 'lesser' art).

As for Jim Baikie New Statesman; no idea, but I'll have a think and get back to you...


As usual, all of the above is just my personal opinion and probably contrary to that of everyone else!

Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 25 January, 2013, 08:05:47 pm
I've always thought go for what you feel you want, it doesn't have to be the piece from the 'best' or 'most popular' story, it should be what means the most to you. Does it bring back memories, is it an artist you really like, is there something in the story that gets you?

I have some big story pieces, some odd pieces from smaller stories, I bought one direct from Boo Cook because I really felt sorry for the little alien gonig to be killed by the priest in Asylum so I asked if I could buy the artwork and I have 13 ABSOLUTELY gorgeous pieces of Colin MacNeil's Devlin Waugh that I am incredibly happy with.

Most recently I suppose the last thing I bought was a Paul Marshall Tyranny Rex and Simon Jacob Armoured Gideon from Dale :) The Tyranny because I love the art even though it doesn't have Tyranny Rex herself in it. The Armoured Gideon piece because it's probably the page I remember the most from it.

My wishlist is really for odd pieces and I'd like to get more artists work I don't already have but my only real wishlist is for a piece of Ezquerra Apocalypse War!

Go with what feels good is what I'd say :)
And be prepared to spend lots of money!

  Please remember any artwork i have on ebay , i am happy to do private deals , rather than give ebay loads of fee's .....

  Over the last few years i have found myself more and more of a collector than a dealer , and in a fantasy world i would keep it all , but sadly having a collection like mine which seems to be going towards the high end prices , i must sell the smaller pieces .....

Thanks to everyone for their responses* its set my mind in the right direction I think. Apologise to Dale I'm going to hang fire and start drawing up a list of short medium and long term aims (doing that alone is going to be fun I suspect).

I've already got my eye on a Colin Wilson Dredd over at Comic Art Fan (whatever its called) and think I'll be getting in touch with Scott McCloud as I know he had some Zot! pages left a couple of years ago (actually maybe longer) that I really liked...

So fantasy one day you never know list so far

70's Jack Kirby double page spread
Old One Eye page
Will Eisner Spirit page
That Satannus spread by Mike McMahon, or I'd settle for the cover to Prog 74 I guess.

Well those ones don't need to be realistic! Now back to the real work and setting some realistic short term targets...

Not so much tickle by fancy, as brutally kick and beat up my fancy while mocking its feeble bank balance (see you two. Yeah you. You two kids that got me up at 6am this morning I'm holding you responsible). That's just lovely.

Kirby's 2000ad series is one of my favourites. Which reminds me I've got to track down the treasury of the movie itself...

Should be accessible from my forum profile now.

Any help with the page numbering of the KOTW pages gratefully received as I don't have access to my copy of the GN at the mo.

Well with all my talk of wish lists, which I have now created one and its so impossibly long... anyway as I already have a lovely Carl Critchlow Dredd page he didn't feature (well not on Dredd I will get a Lobster Random page at some point). So I have my eye on a few Colin Wilson pages and BANG this comes along and I'm buying them 'cos they're there again.

Well that's not strictly true now is it. This is a very significant Dredd story and so I'm really chuffed to have purchased one of the pages. I went for the opposite end to Link Prime and choose page 28. I almost went for page 25 but as I said (typed) to Carl, there a quite a few pages of Dredd being kick ass (but man does he look so very kick ass here) and not so many featuring all three of the main characters from his story and I love that cityscape. Can't wait to get it.

Thanks for the heads up James really appreciated.

So there you go my latest purchase an early 41st Birthday present to myself. Now to replenish the funds so I can get back to those Colin Wilson pages...

Good stuff, Colin - glad to see you've wisely chosen to ignore all the advice I offered :lol:

Heh, no - makes sense to me, really.  As for Colin Wilson, if these are pages from Royd (who pops in here from time to time) why not drop him a line and see if he'll put something on hold for you?  I'm fairly sure he'll be happy to do that.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Colin YNWA on 30 January, 2013, 12:23:41 pm
Yeah they are Royd's pages. I've got it down to 5 (!) to select from and was wondering about contacting him as I've noticed a number of pages on hold since creating my wish list and did wonder if I should do that.

I had enough trouble picking my Trifecta page today I think I'll leave a final decision for the Colin Wilson page until another day as I just looked at them all (via comicartfans pages) again just now and I decided that, yes I love them all and will sell my body so I can get them all... I think it might have to be organs as I suspect the other way won't raise much... ahem ... anyway sorry...

Ming if its any consolation my wish list exists AND I e-mailed Scott McCloud about some Zot! pages and had a lovely (and as it turns out convenient) reply saying he hopes to get sorted selling what he has sometime next year.

I hope you are proud by your humble student oh master.

ah its a wonderful prelim/concept piece Ming! I have a couple of the rough pencil sketches and they are amongst the cheapest and most satisfying pieces I have.  I bought them early in my collecting frenzy and they give you the feeling that you are owning a really important part of the 'process'.  I have them framed very simply alongside a description of the overall RT concept and storyline.  This one is the step beyond and is really terrific.....
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread

...alongside a description of the overall RT concept and storyline.

Is that just a copy of something that's been published, or something else?  Sounds great, anyway!  I just remembered I was going to try to get some 'Rogue memories' from Cam to add to the comments from Colin Wilson.  I should probably ask Dave Gibbons as well, but I think his side of things is probably fairly well documented.

When are you going to start hurting our brains with your lovely art?

I saw that 20 or more yrs ago...I've always thought that a stunning work... I noticed something about Gibbons work recently, no matter how far back you go, there's almost no change in his work (even in to the fanzine art of the 70's). It's as though his work has always been 'mature'...certainly when compared to everybody else on those same progs...very strange and quite brilliant. It's all still very current.

So yeah with thanks to Dale I got a three page sequence I've always really loved from Medivac 316 and a Paul Marshal Tyranny Rex page, which while its black and white broke my resolve (well that and the fact that I know both Leatherjack and Dragonkind are out of reach for the time being) as its bloody lovely and up close quite astonishing.

Great to hear, Colin - you obviously know what you like, so having that wish-list in mind will definitely pay off.  Get on to Royd about the Colin Wilson art though; may as well contact him about it sooner rather than later, and I think he'll keep it aside for you for a couple of months if you want.

@ Colin- it was page 15 from Prog 857.

And just under 30 years (gulp!) after first seeing this page, it lands at my doorstep. Very happy chappy, thats me.

(http://i.imgur.com/w5zXQ4H.jpg)

Any page from Skizz would be a grail for me, but i reckon this one is my Skizz uber-grail.
Its low key, about as low key as its possible to be. And it reads, and looks, like a Brummie version of Grange Hill ! - and it doesnt even feature the title character !!, but its always been the one page that pops into my mind whenever ive thought of Skizz. And being lucky enough to now own it makes me smile.
The following page in the story was up for grabs on e-bay recently, and though i bidded a few times, i didnt have the heart to chase it, as i knew that this page was maybe up for grabs, so i stopped bidding and took the gamble.

And Jim Baikie's art is glorious up close, been well worth the wait.
Cant recall who the writer was offhand, though. Still, whoever he was, he did a good job,  ;)
(The page itself is mahoosive, so getting a decent scan and then up onto CAF may take a while)

Well, what can you say about Cam's art that hasnt already been said? But genius stuff, and he makes it all look so effortless!

Congratulation, Jack, that's beautiful beyond belief. Where do you live, what are your work hours and do you have old wooden sash windows or double glazing? Given the recent discussion of Bolland's missing pages, I'd be interested in reading the story of Cam's pages and their journey back and forth across the Black Atlantic/Black Market.

One of the things I find amazing is that if you look at Cam's work across any period of time, the details of his ink style can change dramatically -- sometimes it's all scratchy feathering, sometimes it's detailed cross-hatching -- and yet it's always, always unmistakeably Cam.

I'm hugely envious…!

I 'ad that Cam Kennedy in the back of me cab once...

The story I got from Cam: "On one of my trips over to USA (1989) we were staying in Upper New York state for 6 weeks, as we had  house swopped with Charlie Vess. I had taken a pile of Dredd pages with me to show and maybe sell. During this trip I met up with and befriended Walt Simenson ( Thor's artist). He insisted on giving me about 50 or 60 of his Thor comics, which he duly signed. For the trip home I had to decide whether to leave the Thors or the Dredds. Towards the end of the holiday we were staying with Rick Veitch, Tom's brother and he said that he would look after the Dredd pages. I must admit I had forgotten about them until about 4 months ago when I was talking to Rick after a long absence. Long and short I sent the postage money and he duly sent them back - it was like having children you haven't seen for years returning home!"

That was a couple of years back.  I was lucky enough to get pick of the litter, hence my Warlord cover plus my favourite pages from The Big Sleep and Magnificent Obsession.  Along with examples of Cam's Rogue and VCs work, I'm a very, very lucky fella.


Oh, and (obviously) fantastic stuff, Iain - a real corker!

Cheers, ming, that story was much happier than I was expecting. It's nice to hear Cam talking about his art with the a degree of the affection it deservedly attracts here, since he's seemed fairly blasé about his comic work in interviews I've read.

Post by: Spikes on 10 February, 2013, 02:56:41 pm
One of the things I find amazing is that if you look at Cam's work across any period of time, the details of his ink style can change dramatically -- sometimes it's all scratchy feathering, sometimes it's detailed cross-hatching -- and yet it's always, always unmistakeably Cam.

I'm hugely envious…!

Cheers

Jim

And looking at it again (i cant put it, or the Skizz page down!), its pretty mindblowing that on the Cam page there isnt a single alteration/correction - or any use of white-out. So a full page pencilled, and inked to perfection.
Mightily impressive work!

Only fly in the ointment is that its £5,000. Anyone wanna go shares?

Three buyers getting two pages each? Or a six man team snagging a page each? (which would mean splitting it all up..)
Dunno how it could be worked out to reduce the cost, and then youve the dilema of who gets what page.....

But id deffo be interested in trying to snag a page(s) from this.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 22 February, 2013, 11:48:04 am
I think it's too expensive to split it up though and you might get several people wanting the same page if it was to be split.
£833 a page is too much. It kind of makes sense as a whole collection though which is why it is the price it is I'm sure.

I really want a Apocalypse War page but even if I had the money for just one page I just don't think I would go for it. Maybe to add to the 'when I win the lottery' list and hope noone buys it till then?
Only needs to be till tomorrow morning ;)
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: hippynumber1 on 22 February, 2013, 11:55:45 am
I agree, £833/page is expensive! How much did J3DI's page go for? Nowhere near that much, and there was that cover not so long back that didn't go for a whole lot more...
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 22 February, 2013, 12:02:34 pm
£465 in the end wasn't it?

That they are the last set of the story, that it's a whole set together and that it's old and rare makes it more valuable than the sum of it's parts so the price is 'fair' in that respect. But that is also a barrier for many people and something that makes splitting it harder as well.
I'm sure theres someone that will go for it at that price though. Sell something else they have (artwork, car, motorbike, wife) to able to get it.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 22 February, 2013, 01:05:55 pm
It would be a shame to see this split up, really.  Like JJ's McMahon Pin-boing story, it's something that's more impressive complete and makes it far better than the sum of its parts.  There are some pages that work well on their own but taken altogether the impact is far greater. 

Not that I'd refuse any page from this ;)



Meanwhile, where's that tracking number..?

Dredd (and Spikes) versus the Legion of the Damned.

To see the pencils, and then the inked version, in scanned form, was midblowing enough, but to actually hold the art in your hands...

Its been great to see all these commissions go up on Mick's blog (and great to see some landing for folks on here, as well) - and of course there's still a few more to come.

That is perfect. I'm not kidding; if you took a rule and a set of dividers to that page you'd see that the balance of proportions are absolutely literally perfectly in harmony with each other, and the relationship between the areas of black and white leads the eye through that composition flawlessly and effortlessly. That your commission also manages to be dynamic, dramatic, and to demonstrate a great sense of humour, is what makes Mick a genius.

McMahon seems to build up an image (at least in his head) by arranging, layering and combining simple geometric shapes into something much more complex, and if you traced over that image, marking the lines of composition and the arrangement of triangles and hyperbola which all converge on the focal point of that page, the result would look a lot like the formal perfection of cubist art.

Congratulations, Jack - that's a masterpiece.

Ill have to investigate this new gizmo further!
Would you believe i scanned my Apoc War DPS, which it massive -  believe me, on a A4 scanner? It took 9 scans to cover the bulk of it, then a whole load of other smaller scans to cover the rest, and then it was ALL stitched together using nowt more than paint...

I must learn to move with the times!  :lol:

Will these new scans be going up on CAF, Kev?

Super sweet, that Greg.  :thumbsup:
(And yes, Mr Wells has that cover, doesnt he. Jammy bugger!)

Lovely Ridgeway - he is a real favourite artist for me and I would love to get my hands on some Deadman (one of my favourite stories).

That Nemesis is fab as well! Lovely stuff!

A real heavyweight champion of a piece, this one.

Arrived today - and it's simply stunning.  Incredibly perfect condition, direct from Cam - it really looks like this was done yesterday.  I have a huge soft spot for Cam's art from this period and to get another of his covers is more than I could have hoped for.  Lucky me :)

I'll stick this on CAF later with some close-ups and a lovely pic of the hand-coloured production art (kindly provided by Steve Cook).  In the meantime...

From the amazing Zarjazz exhibition of 2005 comes this beauty by the very kind and talented Rufus Dayglo.

Rufus organised and ran the whole exhibition in London back in 2005 and this was his commissioned piece for the event, its massive at 42 x62 cm and really stood out amongst a plethora of 2000AD classic art and artists.  On the back of this Matt Smith commissioned Rufus to draw a number of the 2000AD covers which other collectors have on display here on CAF.

I LOVE this piece, its LOUD PROUD and IN CHARGE and I'm thrilled to own it...................

The thing with Richard Elson is I can never quite get used to the change in the art from Shadows (and that Dredd cover come to that) and his present stuff. For me its a complete shift. I do wonder what he did work wise in-between times to develop the change?

Cam's asking prices for pages vary from insanely cheap to very, very reasonable.   

^ This.
Art collecting can be ridiculously expensive, but when dealing with the various droids, they definitely seem happy to make their art available to the many, instead of the few.
Cam is a very good example of that, as is the forum's very own Colin MacNeil.
Nice that boarders are putting money straight into their pockets. Hardly surprising though, when the art is of this quality.

And speaking of quality, thats a hell of a page youve got there, Rich.

Well, here's hoping.
Never known of Carlos doing commission work before, and certainly i havent seen any pop up, before now.
I had asked around, a few years ago - to those in the know, and it seemed that it wasnt on the cards then.
I never got in direct contact with the great man himself, so what the real story was, i couldnt say.

But all the ones on CAF are listed as commissions, so...

I did not get this as a commission. This was a piece he did for IDW, I just fell in love with it when I saw it, It took me back to the covers around the Prog 400 era. I will have to check if it got printed. I have sent him a message to ask whether he is taking commissions on at the moment, and will let you all know.

He was, of course, one of the many artist's featured for the variant cover's of Dredd #1, and i think ive seen it mentioned that he's doing a cover for the 'Year One' series, as well.
Maybe Carlos produced a few of these, and IDW are using them as and when?

I totally agree. And in some cases it could be the only way to get the work but you can get big pages of published original artwork from others for that much which personally I'd prefer.
But then I don't have a massive want for any of these rarer artists so what do I know? :P

There is a lot more artwork around recently isn't there :)

Great page ..... i almost cry to see what i have sold over the years , i'm so glad these pages went to good homes

That he is Hippy, that he is.

In other 'I'll be living off rice for the next two weeks' news, I've just secured the purchase of one of my favourite 2000AD pages of all time; the 4th page of Cams 'VCs' from Prog 163 (the heart freezing moment where the Earthworm considers betraying Ringer and leaving him to the Geek's mercy!)  :)
Will post a pic as soon as it arrives!

Now to set my sights on the next target: a Bryan Talbot page featuring Nemesis & The ABC Warriors.

Carlos Ezquerra has let me know that if anyone would like a commission then he is happy to see if he can accommodate them between his deadline work.

As I am sure you well know Carlos has been responsible for creating some of the most memorable characters in 2000ad as well as illustrating some amazing US series (Preacher, Bloody Mary).

If anyone is interested in getting something unique done just PM me and I can pass on his email - I don't really want to just throw his address out into a public forum.

That's a seriously sweet Dredd cover youve got for yourself, Dale.

So, was the Dragonwotsit stuck directly onto the art? You'd have thought theyd stick it on the acetate.
Still, the glue residue doesnt diminish, at all, the loveliness of the piece.

Out of all of the strips that Cam drew, the VC's is my favourite. Great stuff,  :thumbsup:

I dont think Cam has any Rogue Trooper stuff left now.
The lists he sent me recently had no pages on offer.
And i think his website has stated this as well. Think thats been the case for a good while. Hardly surprising, really.

EDIT: I see that Mark has already answered the above question!
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: ming on 15 March, 2013, 07:04:45 pm
Link, that's a cracker of a VCs page - really chilling stuff and a very memorable scene.

And yeah, all Cam's Rogue pages are long gone, unfortunately.  He still had a couple of pages listed as available when I first got in touch with him a few years back, but that was just a case of him not updating his lists.  Bugger.  :lol:

Luckily for me I'd already picked up a Rogue page from Rufus - my first bit of original art; the page that started me on this whole insane art-collecting thing, in fact.

(http://i.imgur.com/vhAxEt5.jpg)


Rufus still has some Cam Rogue pages for sale on Artdroids, I think - although prices have definitely gone up and I think he may just be selling one complete episode.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Greg M. on 15 March, 2013, 07:14:09 pm
Cool page, David - Cam is such a master of the action sequence. Yeah, Rufus has a complete episode of 'All Hell On The Dix-I Front' for £1800 - a little steep (even for four pages) but admittedly not the steepest piece on his books given that particular story is one of the highpoints of 'Rogue Trooper'.

Isn't the more recent cover from an earlier stage in Red's career though? So she's younger in the more cleavage-y of the two. Her face certainly looks younger.

Aye, and her body language is more lairy too. I assumed Carlos was deliberately echoing the pose of the earlier image, where she looks more poised and womanly, to highlight the fact that this was a rougher, younger version of the character.

Yes - and she must have had a boob reduction, before later in her career, in the Mark Harrison era, she got the boobs increased again and had facial reconstructive surgery to look like a heroine (classic movie star) Angelina Jolie!  :P

I put a max bid of £120 on that Biz Hellblazer page, but lost out in the last few minutes.
Ah well...

I put that pocket-burning cash to good use though...just secured a package deal with Dale for some very interesting pieces (including some very obscure Paul Marshall Tyranny Rex pages that will make Greg M want to put a hit out on my worthless carcass!)  ;)

By the way...the asking price for that Liefeld is ludicrous, but I've no doubt it'll sell.

A trio of super sweet illustrations that Marshall did for a Tyranny Rex text story in one of the old 2000AD yearbooks. I fell in love with them instantly.
Will post as soon as that tube of gold arrives...

Also; got the painted version of that "Finally kicked the habit" TR splash page (that you have up on CAF in pencil & ink form). A decent price reduction from Dale on that one, as it's slightly damaged by bleed-through from the 2000AD stamp on the back.

Sounds fantastic. The only Tyranny Rex text story I can remember much about is 'Touched By the Hand of Brendan', and that was illustrated by Mark Buckingham, so I will be very keen (and not remotely envious, oh, no, no, no!) to see your haul. Paul Marshall was such a fantastic artist in his 'ultra-detailed' phase - he's still good, but his style is much more pared down.

For my part, I got the 'Black Hawk' page that was up on eBay at the same time as the Bisley stuff and the Prog 2 Dan Dare. Can't beat a bit of Belardinelli magic.

Very nice Greg, I was ogling that Belardinelli page meself.

I totally agree with you about Marshall's artistic style change by the way...I much preferred his earlier work (Firekind being his apex) but still rate him very highly.
I remember being very disappointed by the looseness of his work on Leatherjack, a style he hasn't really shook off since.
Was Dredd mini epic 'Darkside' his last old style stuff?

I haven't read 'Darkside' in ages (it must be due in a couple of Case Files' time?) but I seem to recall that even as early as that he'd switched to his contemporary style. I kinda think Tyranny Rex itself was the last of 'classic' Marshall.

You may be right there. Must re-read Darkside at some stage too.
The only downside of course is that there's a very limited supply of 'classic' Marshall out there, being hoovered up by the distinguished connoisseur as I type....

Hoping to seal his fate with a one-two-punch, a handsome splash page from Dredd epic 'Darkside' was next produced.
Featuring 'The Mutant' from the apocalyptic year 2120 (coincidentally the same year futurists predict that the hated Greg M will have gotten over being usurped by a cooler collection of Paul Marshall artwork).

War of the Marshalls update.

This is one of the images used from a Tyranny Rex text story (from a special, not a Yearbook).
I really think Paul Marshall has a great flair for design work.

I'm looking to buy the original art for the logo he designed for the original run of 'Thargs Terror Tales' by the way, if anyone out there has it.

Okay so I know I'm going to have to get to my own answer in this, but I thought I'd ask the question and see how others think. Bare with me if you will.

Wake's post yesterday about Skreemer art being available sent to up to the attic to dig out my well read (and in one case signed) copies of the comic. I absolutely love it. I had genuinely been doing a search for some that very morning along with other things, while planning my next eBay fund raising sales to try to work out a target amount.

So anyway having an open field I decided to get my request for a piece in straight away, to give myself the best chance of getting the best piece and there hangs my dilemma. Unlike the Red Seas piece I reserved there's no such thing as the definitive Skreemer page for me there's so much going on in the story. Normally I don't go for a big splashy piece I go for a bit of story, or moments in that story that matter to me, or even a piece that has some representation of the elements of the story I like.

In this case I just can't find that piece (on a side note, funny how the mind plays tricks on you. Before getting the books out I had a few pages in mind quite clearly. It turned out they were composites of different pages, put together in my head to make the perfect page!). So I then turned to thinking should just go for a nice big splash or semi splash of Veto (for those that know the comics) as he dominates the thing so much... then I got stuck as it was well past my bedtime and I needed to sleep on it... so all that needless waffle leaves me with the question.

What do people here go for. A bit of story, or a great single image of a character or event?

I would say that no collector could answer you straight on this one Colin!

There are so many factors to consider it can wreck your head a bit, but for me it comes down to the following:

- Nostalgia (hey, you're talkin to someone who bought a G1 Soundwave Transformer on EBay last night)
- The artist (each to their own on this)
- The 'X-Factor' (sometimes a page just has that certain something, and if you consider it cool then go for it!)

This pretty much sums it up for me too! I've been thinking on how to answer this question for about 30 minutes but, ultimately, it boils down to 'it depends'! Sometimes it's a story page, sometimes a splash or cover, sometimes a memorable panel.  I have pages for all of these reasons and more...

Tough question, Colin – the main deciding issues for me are often ‘what’s available and what I can afford’, but I sense you’re really asking about more intangible factors.

Thinking about it, I often like pages or stories showcasing characters with a wild and distinctive design – often this translates to baddies, monsters or weird aliens, but one of 2000AD’s virtues has always been the fact that even the goodies look like baddies! Part of my love for Bad Company, for instance, is that even the most minor of characters have a real visual hook to ‘em. So, when buying Medivac 318 pages from Dale, I picked out those that gave you a good view of the alien Jenarit: likewise, with John Cooper’s ‘Storm Force’ stuff from Battle, I wanted anything with Crab-Spider in it.

Sometimes it is simply the artist – I’ve two complete Dredd tales by Paul Marshall (excuse me as I launch a quick ‘War of the Marshalls’ salvo at Link Prime!) neither of which has massive significance to me as a story, but which both showcase Marshall’s classic era art well. Sometimes it’s also the era – I am fondest of the run of progs from the late 400s through to around 700, so a lot of what I own comes from that period.

Aside from that, it’s sometimes the moments  – some of these are moments that struck a chord with me (a lot of my Bad Company stuff), sometimes they struck a chord with me and they’re very significant in the history of the series (Judge Dredd resigns in ‘Tale of the Dead Man’.) I am lucky enough to own the original art for my favourite page in all of comics – Protoid chopping De Racine’s head off in ‘Bad Company II’ – and for me, everything in that page comes together to create a perfect storm of thrillpower. Cracking dialogue, culmination of an important story thread, and two brilliantly-designed weird characters locked in mortal combat. It gets no better.

Arh now you see this is why I posed the question, one which I knew would be almost unanswerable, but one that once answered might spark a thoughtl or feeling in me that helped me get closer to the decision I was struggling with and good old Mr M. has hit on it for me.

See normally I go for moments, or elements of a story. So the Red Seas one I've picked has two Ray Harryhausen monsters fighting, a giant metal warrior and a giant squid, Jack, an important need (and colleague) leaping from a gash in said metal warrior, so we have high action. Its also set at sea, which while so much of Red Seas isn't, any page I was going to own had to be, to underscore its pirate setting. There in one page is Red Seas perfectly encapsulated.

I was never going to get that in a single Skreemer page. There are about 4 moments I've pulled out. All juggling for my affections. Typically my favourite not necessarily a greatly appealing page aside from 3 panels. Then I read Greg's comment and it clicks.

Its a Brett Ewins' page. What does Brett Ewins do better than most. Why create brilliant, monstrous men. Veto is one such man. Most of the pages where Veto is drawn large and monstrous he's wearing this big fur coat and wide brimmed hat, which I think distracts from what makes him such a wonderful design (though its does work in the context of the story as it emphasizes the success he has found). And of course he must be stood at on the edge of that ledge, waiting and tempting and contemplating breaking free of his fate.

So what do I go for. Well this time the design and the monster, in his perfect environment to sum up the main theme of the story. If not a moment that drives the theme(s) forward.

I think I have my answer... which had probably gone now, so I'll be back to fighting over the different moments...

Thanks all for the thoughts.

Anyway, I've never owned either a piece of Slaine art, nor anything by Clint Langley despite having a deep manly love for both of them.
And agreeing with Greg's comment regarding availability & price also being a factor, I couldn't pass up this 'Lord of Misrule' page for 60 smackarooines...

Had to come back and answer this question ...... Time Travel

Its all about Time Travel for me .... when i buy a certain page , it transports me back to the first time i saw it , which was usually a saturday morn in a day gone by .... yes some artist are better and more expensive than others , that does not mean a cheap piece of artwork can not work the same magic ....

Greg M has this pretty well covered but I'll still add my thoughts...

For me, it starts with the artist.  Some artists I'd love anything by (as in I'd settle for a single decent example of their work - O'Neill and Bolland, pretty much), a few artists I'd take pretty much all I can handle (McCarthy & Cam Kennedy being my main weaknesses) and others I look for a good representative pairing of the artist with the character(s) I associate most with them (Ewins Bad Co., Ezquerra Strontium Dog, etc.).  For the latter group, given a choice (money, availability, patience) I'll wait until I come across a page that jumps out at me for whatever reason; I've picked up some great splash pages as well as pages that crackle with wonderful dialogue.  In the end, there are always far too many memorable images, scenes or stories and far too few opportunities to buy the original artwork associated with these, but when you find a page that really resonates with you, you know it.

Looking at my art collection it's really hard to pick a few favourites as the diversity of the artwork (the styles, characters, stories, pages - and panels and the details with those) are what makes this such a fascinating and infuriatingly moreish habit.

One other thing I'll say is that with contemporary art, I really miss the lack of dialogue - as much a part of the artwork as the brushstrokes on the page.  Some things stand up perfectly well on their own without dialogue (the McCarthy Walking Dredd page I have is fantastic in this respect) but others just feel a bit flat without the chat.

I very much agree with ming about the importance of dialogue in terms of owning original art - it's that glorious synthesis of text and image that makes the medium what it is. And speaking of glorious images, here's the Black Hawk page I got recently on ebay, and have just got round to scanning in:

What do people here go for. A bit of story, or a great single image of a character or event?

I would say that no collector could answer you straight on this one Colin!

There are so many factors to consider it can wreck your head a bit, but for me it comes down to the following:

- Nostalgia (hey, you're talkin to someone who bought a G1 Soundwave Transformer on EBay last night)
- The artist (each to their own on this)
- The 'X-Factor' (sometimes a page just has that certain something, and if you consider it cool then go for it!)

This pretty much sums it up for me too! I've been thinking on how to answer this question for about 30 minutes but, ultimately, it boils down to 'it depends'! Sometimes it's a story page, sometimes a splash or cover, sometimes a memorable panel.  I have pages for all of these reasons and more...

I'll add my vote to that as well. My art collection is all about pages that mean something special to me, and i wouldnt buy a page for any other reason. Makes no real difference as to whether its a stunning page, or a 'boring' one, to me. If its special to me, for whatever reason, then im glad to give it a good home.


And regarding what Colin said, when he said he had a perfect page in mind, but upon tracking that issue down the page was actually misremembered, and was in fact a composite of several! Yep, thats happened to me!

Sweet mother of JESUS, that Black Hawk page looks waaaayyy better than it did on EBay.

Great piece Greg.

I've just this week bought a hand-held 'wand' scanner that cost just under £40 - 900dpi. It hasn't arrived yet so haven't had a chance to play but will certainly let you know how it goes...

Good stuff! (but deleting a image by mistake is the nightmare scenario, isnt it).
Ill have a looksee at what other scan's you but up - of course, but that looks pretty darn spot-on, and maybe a wand is a worthwhile investment, and the way forward

(Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say - and ive made do with scanning from a A4 scanner with pretty good results, but if the art is on fairly rigid board then it can become problematic to get a good image - a wand would bypass all that)

Seriously though, very much looking forward to seeing your pages.
Regarding CAF, its one at a time - unless you subscribe to the premier upgrade ($50 a year) then you can upload multiple images.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: opaque on 14 April, 2013, 03:15:39 pm
I upgraded earlier but can't see that about multiple images so will have to hunt it out.

Well some of them are the page with and without the lettering. I've got some I've not been able to re-identify so they will have to be added later on.
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Spikes on 14 April, 2013, 06:10:25 pm
I think it gives you the option to do multiple posts when your in the process of loading, or completing the first one. Usually ive only had the need to post one image at a time, but i think thats how it works.

Here's Steve Cook's blog entry on the fantastically coloured production art version of that image:

I've also recently purchased a new piece of Nemesis original art, though probably cost nowhere near as much as your O'Neill.

I will say this though...it's one of the most expensive pages I've ever bought, and it's something that you lot probably haven't seen before.

Greg M that Bad Company artwork hits the spot.

In my failed attempt to enter the last art comp, while burrowing through some old comics for reference I came across an issue of Speakeasy fanzine which has a full page interview with Milligan, Ewins and J McCarthy. It was regarding the start of the second series of Bad Company in 2000AD and the launch of the first Bad Company Titan album.

Interestingly, seven or eight episodes had been written before Milligan knew that Ewins and McCarthy were the art team. They set out to make it look "unlike any of the strips in 2000AD". They said they were under some pressure from 2000AD to produce a slick "Bolland look" but they stuck to their guns.

One of my favourite strips in 2000AD.

(The other news on the front page of that Speakeasy was about 2000AD being bought by Maxwell.)

Is there a good list of places where 2000 AD original art (classic and modern) is readily available?  I've found a few caches on the internet here and there, but I wasn't sure if there are larger art dealers or lists of private sellers where interested parties would go to view available art.  The answer might lie in this thread somewhere... apologies if I missed it.

Classifieds on here and ebay are good places to start; the comic art fans website has loads of dealers and artwork for sale, I have some John Cooper Armitage pages for sale and fatboydale and wake over on Barney are all good bets. It always helps, of course, if you know what you want!

E-bay may well be your best place for the Savage art. Is it Fatboydale (a forum member on here) who sells these? Priced quite reasonably, if i recall.
Ezquerra Dredd pages dont pop up that often, and again the cheapest examples recently have been on E-bay.

Thanks, o1s1n - and youve snagged a beauty of a page for yourself, by the looks of things.

It had gone a little quiet on here, regarding Cam's pages - though i think some forum memebers are waiting on some goodies from him, so its nice to see more of  1.) The money going straight to his pocket, for his art, and 2.) People getting hold of quality pages that otherwise would have been hoovered up years ago.

As for the sneaky peak, id say Prog 455 is yer man, and its a page that shows a nice bit of Bootknife action,  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: o1s1n on 05 May, 2013, 09:06:52 pm
There's something special alright about getting such quality pages (and older ones at that) directly from an artist. I'd assume at this point they'd all have been hoovered up as you said or else they were pages the artist wanted to pull a Bill Watterson on and hold onto for life.

Cam is a gent. First time I've contacted an artist directly for comic art and it could not have gone better. :)

Spot on with the prog number by the way, a ninja star and some hardcore a boot knife action on the one page. Loved it when I was a kid - love it even more now! :)


Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Spikes on 05 May, 2013, 09:30:10 pm
Dont know if you caught it o1s1n, but the tale was that Cam took a load of art with him on a trip to the States, but then had to leave behind.
During his stay, he'd picked up a load of other stuff, that put him over his weight allowance, travelling back. So something had to give.

That was over twenty years ago, and only very recently was it sent back to Cam. Pages from that 'missing' stash are whats been popping up on here. They would have easily been sold long ago, if not for that.



Not a story I was immediately familiar with, but some great Ewins art there Iain (as are the remaining two pages on your CAF gallery).
Superb.

Cheers, Kevin. Those early short Future Shocks (this story is from 1981) are firm faves of mine. And that story is deffo amongst my top five. Id somehow missed this art when Wake first announced his sale, and only saw it going on his site again more than a good few days after the fact.
This period of Bretts art is amongst his best, i think. Certainly looking at the art first hand, and seeing just how much work he put into each panel, has caused my appreciation of his work to increase dramactically.

Dont know if you caught it o1s1n, but the tale was that Cam took a load of art with him on a trip to the States, but then had to leave behind.

The full story was related to me by Cam a few years back (shortly after the main batch of art was returned; 2010, I think):

Ming, or malak brood may know this story better than me, but somehow a good chunk of Cam's art ended up in the States, and then promptly went MIA.
But luckily for Cam (and us!) it all turned up again. He has a list available for what he selling, so why not drop him a line.

I 'ad that Cam Kennedy in the back of me cab once...

The story I got from Cam: "On one of my trips over to USA (1989) we were staying in Upper New York state for 6 weeks, as we had  house swopped with Charlie Vess. I had taken a pile of Dredd pages with me to show and maybe sell. During this trip I met up with and befriended Walt Simenson ( Thor's artist). He insisted on giving me about 50 or 60 of his Thor comics, which he duly signed. For the trip home I had to decide whether to leave the Thors or the Dredds. Towards the end of the holiday we were staying with Rick Veitch, Tom's brother and he said that he would look after the Dredd pages. I must admit I had forgotten about them until about 4 months ago when I was talking to Rick after a long absence. Long and short I sent the postage money and he duly sent them back - it was like having children you haven't seen for years returning home!"

That was a couple of years back.  I was lucky enough to get pick of the litter, hence my Warlord cover plus my favourite pages from The Big Sleep and Magnificent Obsession.  Along with examples of Cam's Rogue and VCs work, I'm a very, very lucky fella.


o1s1n - that's a truly fantastic page!  Definitely one of the best from the whole story, and one I mulled over for a good long while (and would have gone for if it hadn't been for those pesky covers).  Great stuff!

 :)

Post by: o1s1n on 06 May, 2013, 01:15:26 am
Oh wow, thanks for the info guys! There's nothing I love more than having an interesting back story to pieces :)

Mad to think Cam would chose to bring back some signed Thor comics over his Dredd artwork.  :o

Yeah Ming, that was always one of my favourite pages from that story. I originally read it in Classic 2000AD in the mid 90s. (Would have been 2 when prog 455 came out! :D). Always loved that closeup of Dredd's hand and the ninja star. Great image - delighted you didn't buy it! heh

Post by: Wake on 09 May, 2013, 12:34:39 pm
The letters are on separate pieces of paper that have been pasted onto the artwork, which is why they go translucent with age. My prog 1 Harlem Heroes page does have lettering directly onto the art, but in that case Dave Gibbons did his own lettering (and presumably there are different rules for launch issue artwork anyway, since he did use separate pieces on the other page I have from prog 16).
Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: Bubba Zebill on 09 May, 2013, 02:00:26 pm
It's the fact that the lettering is doing something irreversible to the original art. The letterer can't easily fix ink that has smudged or run due to a mistake - hence the comment about nerves of steel. Even for Dave Gibbons who could fix his smudges (although I doubt he made any) it would be a pain. It's just so surprising to see, no money for / or method established for / acetate or perhaps no easy way to photograph pages with letters pasted over acetate in those days.


Title: Re: 2000AD Original Art Thread
Post by: o1s1n on 09 May, 2013, 09:46:51 pm
Absolutely wonderful pages. Well done Dale - I don't know how you do it!  :o

Regarding lettering - remember, if a mistake was made, it's going to black and white print. Nothing a bit of tipex won't sort. (If there's anything I've learned from my Hicklenton pages is that tipex is okay!)

Not that there are any lettering inconsistencies in those pasted bubbles on the Ro-busters art. Lovely work so it is.

Have to say, I love the way the pastes go translucent, get to see the artwork again! :D

Great piece, Link, and indeed rather Hicklenton-y in its organic nature (though Langley seems to prefer a more snub-beaked take on the Warlock.) Here's another Bad Company piece from me, which features one of my absolute favourite moments from the original series - "What about Thrax? What's his problem?" If I'd been given the free option of owning any page from BC1, this would have made my top 5 easily.

A very big thank you to Dale who I know was very reluctant to let it go. Fortunately for him, a weak Euro means he's probably having a bath in £100 pound notes as I type.

Very nice that Link, so this has never popped up anywhere else before?
Its always nice to got hold of the original art, but nicer still, to get something a bit unusual.
Good stuff!

I've made a start with uploading my artwork onto CAF.
Taking a lot lot longer than I thought it would be (and it's tiring so much mouse work) so take a look at what's already up and I'll be adding more to it soon :)

I have pages 4&5 of the final part of The Two Torquemadas - best to keep page 3 with them for completion's sake!  :lol:

I missed out on the very first page from it a few years back. The guy selling it on Ebay got a really high offer via PM. Turns out the buyer was going to give it to Johnny's wife as a gift.

Felt better when I heard that...still though, would have loved it! Incredible page.

Prog 455, and no - it was still missing (or strangely reappeared in the knife-wielding panel) when printed...

I wonder was it a bit of artistic license on the panel and it just looked better without? Will check later to see if there are any signs of an elbow bad being erased.

I wonder was it a bit of artistic license
I wondered about that too. If the pad were in place on that arm it would reduce the dynamic some, but then he would just increase the perspective on the arm, make the hand bigger to maintain the dynamic...so I think Cam Kennedy probably forgot to ink it in. No criticism, Dredd is a complex character to draw and I'm surprised more artists don't forget bits and pieces.

It also says something about the quality of the artist's storytelling that nobody noticed  :lol:

Frankly, I think that makes it EVEN more valuable.

Is there going to be a rush on Mick Austin now that a source of his art has leaked?
His Anderson cover to Prog 760 is unfortunately gone already...one of my favourite covers of all time.
Would love a page of 'Crusade' at some stage...will have to take on a weekend 2nd job in Specsavers to fund it though!

I bought it from the CAF owner, I asked him about another page entirely and when I went to see it saw the Hicklenton pages and fell in love! I could only get them by throwing cash at him. I have another page as well that will make you well jeal (as they say). I will try to get a photo today. Unfortunately the others were definitely not for sale otherwise I would have had them.

He told me an interesting story about these pages, and that was that they had originally been given to Simon Bisley as a gift from Hicklenton. And then Bisley had sold them. One of them had 'to Simon' on it so it seems believable.

Just compared page 60 to the original. That's some crazy censorship going on there. The original art, it looks like Torquemada's skin has all peeled back where they're removed the suit...

But in the published art he's still wearing the suit.

I wonder was that censored on a photocopy or with an overlay?

Really interesting to see anyway.

If you are a Finn fan you will also like this. It looks amazing, but is painted in oils on oil painting board and so is quite hard to photograph. The size is about A2.

Leviathans Farewell is gold standard 2000AD material ('twas the '89 summer special Iain- the cover of which made me blush when my Gran worryingly asked me what it was about!)

I'd totally forgotten Mick Austin did that Finn cover too. A beaut to behold in the flesh I would imagine.

Actually Mick used Inks for the black and white stuff and coloured inks for the coloured art.

For painted art he primarily used gouache, however he did experiment in oils early on.

As you can see from this the gouache painting is far more bright and colourful! :D

Well it originally started when I asked Mark where he got his excellent Mick Austin cover, as Mick is one of my favourite ever 2000ad artists.

Once we has established that there was a mutual appreciation and no Mick art out there I got out my detective hat and sought out the man himself! He kept a good deal of his art which was in storage so I was lucky enough to get some of my favourite pages! ::)

It saddens me that there's so little Mick Austin artwork on CAF...thankfully that's soon to change due to your recent sleuthing ;)

Actually the one piece (that Dredd cover to Classic Judge Dredd) which Mark owns was the first Judge Dredd comic I ever bought. Almost pissed myself when I saw it on ebay  :lol:

On a side note, has Carlos ever explained his 'draw little lumps/broken edged lines/square things around the edges of his artwork' technique/styalization? I've always really really liked it and wondered how it came about.

I have a vague recollection of him saying it was to make the 'central' figure stand out. I suppose it's a pre-3D effect of sorts. (We used to call it the 'cut out and keep' line)!

Interrogation with Carlos, Megazine 301:

"That was just because I wanted things to stand out from the background... Because instead of making a thick line as it was done by any other artist, when I had a fish-tooth line he look more mobile, you know?  And at the same time it separated the foreground from the background.

It just came to me... I never thought out anything.  The thing is they just come and it worked, so I carry on doing it.
"

There's a bit more, but that pretty much covers it.

Thought it already was!

@ Wakefield....so you're the one who bought that page eh?
A sub-zero classic, and one of my personal all time favorites. Well done!

I love this pair of pages; no Geek action but plenty of dialogue and Cam's trademark brilliance with alien landscapes and future-tech.  There's even more detail on these pages than I expected, so it's worth checking out the large scans I just uploaded on CAF.

A very lovely pair of consecutive pages there, and well remembered ones, to boot Ming.  :thumbsup:
Youll have to track down the others now!
Always liked (and scratched my head at!) that panel where they say theyll have to get used to seeing in different light!

 




That is such a mad cover, I love it!

On a side note, has Carlos ever explained his 'draw little lumps/broken edged lines/square things around the edges of his artwork' technique/styalization? I've always really really liked it and wondered how it came about.

I think he stopped doing that in the '80's... i've never seen anyone else do that in a drawing.

Mick McMahon also used the 'broken edge line' effect.

Cheers lads! I've been wondering about that one for years. Another mystery of the universe sold :)

Interesting that McMahon did it too, can't say I ever noticed!

Hi guys,

I used to be big fan of 2000AD back in the day, unfortunately I don't have as much time for comics these days.

Looking at this particular thread (and the other original art-related threads) is a great trip down memory lane and it's fantastic to see all this great original artwork by the artistic heroes of my formative years.

So just posting here to show my appreciation for what you guys are doing and I'll put up some of the dozen or so original 2000AD pieces I own.

(Now I'll just have to learn how to use this site, avatar pic, how to post artwork etc!)

I never noticed that before. Thanks for pointing it out.

Surely Mick only used the broken line / fish-tooth effect because he was asked to mimic Carlos' style closely in the early days?  He soon got out from under that and the rest is (art) history!

If you want to mimic Ezquerra go for big chins and a nobbly line!

Oh and exceptionally good drawing

Well, this all now raises the question - and without having any back progs to hand; Who used that effect first?
Those two images by Mick i posted date from 1977 and 1981 respectively. During that time Carlos drew very little Dredd indeed. Of course the Apocalypse War was his big comeback. Did Carlos use that broken line effect on say, Strontium Dog?
A quick look through any back issues would solve this - and i suspect it will have been Carlos, but like i said ive not got them to hand.

Sorry about the rough photos (taken from my phone), I've been meaning to get a decent scanner for ages.

I'll put up a few pieces on the non-2000ad art thread as well.

Hi Link,

Cheers for the compliment, there's something quite magical about the Spear of Lug pictures in the The Horned God saga.

As for my Revere pages, I did indeed purchase them (and a few other things) from Dale, a top bloke, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of 2000ad and it's artwork/artists. But I guess you guys know that already!!
