I'm really impressed with all the stuff on this thread! Real classic stuff from all the masters to present day.

I can see why you get hooked on these, they're true works of art where you actually can see the depth, lines and details - pieces of eternal enjoyment!

I picked up this Ron Smith page way back for about £30, it's the only original art I own as I've realised it's a good way to spend money fast!  :lol:
(Wish I'd bought some more back then though)

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.

Went down to the cellar (no not that one) today to clear out a few things since the last move.
Found many great and funny items and went Nostalgia De Luxe!  :lol:

How about this Aaagh! original art catalogue from '97:



Fancy a Ron Smith page for under £30? (a Judge Child or Unamerican Graffiti Ron Smith!)



Ezquerra Apocalypse War pages - need I say more?



So... where's my Proteus...?   ;)  Aaagh!  :lol:

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.

Ive heard from other collectors that Ian Senior had THE largest collection of Ron Smith artwork, amongst a whole treasure trove of other 2000ad art, as well. Bought a few bits from Ian over the last couple of years. A decent seller, i think.
Would be nice to read these catalogues - any chance of this being scanned and put up on here/elsewhere nicklarr?

Oh, nice to see a page i now own on one of those fotos. I didnt buy this from Ian, but the person who had it before me, obviously did!

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!

Nice.

I got those two Apocalypse War pages from Ian back then. He was giving away two free Ace Trucking pages with every purchase. Bought eight or nine pages from him and 16 pages of Ace Trucking for free. Mainly "The Mush Rush". Quality. Wish i had bought more now.

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).

Ian bought a lot of his stuff from Artists agents, we that's where he cleaned most of Ron out from.

He's still got some nice bits and bobs but not like you think, he's sold most of it now.
