Wanted: Carlos Ezquerra Art
« on: 26 October, 2018, 12:07:13 am »
Long story short, I was in the process of getting a Commission from King Carlos and, like many here, am gutted with his passing. Over the past year I have started collecting 2000AD artwork/commissions (so far - three great commissions from Ian Kennedy and a classic piece from Trevor Hairsine). However, Carlos was my 'holy grail' and I would still love to get some of his art.

Since I cannot have a commission, I would like to get a page of his, preferably Strontium Dog (possibly Dredd).

(Artdroids has some - a little out of my price range [i.e. £1000 - I'd like to not spend quite that], and the Carlos FB page didnt work out and they have decided not to sell the artwork right now).

I'm asking that if anyone has a piece you would be interested to sell, or come across one on ebay/online, please let me know! (It will forever hang with honor on my wall - properly framed).

Thanks all.

Geoff

If you haven't already, try hippynumber1 a couple of posts down. Think he's got some SD and Dredd and he's selling off some pages from his collection.

Best of luck with your quest. There must be plenty of original work out there. Carlos was so good to his fans, he did tons of commisions, at conventions he did sketches for very little money - he was a great guy. His covention sketches are fantastic, I would recommend looking for one of these as a less expensive way of owning some original Ezquerra. I'm lucky enough to have a Judge Death sketch he drew for me in 2016. I'd never sell it, Carlos was a truly exceptional artist. Hope you find something ;-)

Thanks all. I was able to get a couple of pieces of Carlos' art. I'll post them soon as I take good pictures. Seeing his art in person is a thing of beauty.

That's great that so many fans got to meet him and get personalized drawings!
