SPACENITE was a great success here at the store. The art opening on December 6th brought over 300-400 people to see over 130 prints of ROM Spaceknight, illustrated by over 100 artists across the world.
The show was a tribute to comic creator Bill Mantlo, who wrote every issue of ROM, as well just about every other Marvel title in the 80’s. This show was organized as a fundraiser for Mantlo, who was injured in a hit and run accident 15 years ago. Severe brain injuries left him without motor functions, and he will live the rest of his life in a brain damage institute. This show was organized with the blessing of Bill’s brother and caregiver, Mike Mantlo.
We sold over $600 worth of posters that evening, but the turnout for the silent auction did not meet our expectations. With the blessing of everyone who bid that evening, we decided to extend the auction online until the end of the month.
This gives an opportunity to all the ROM fans elsewhere to get a chance to own an original illustration of their favorite character. And best of all, all the proceeds go towards Bill Mantlo’s medical care.
The following original pieces are all available on ebay until the auctions end Friday, Dec. 28th. Click on the artist’s name to link to their corresponding auction where you can place your bid.

Here's a full stack of Marshall cabs and you can see the drawing board w/ a partially inked Captain America page on the lightbox. I'm getting about a page a day done down here & have 14 pgs. of 38 done. I should be working but decided to post this then I'll grab a coffee and get rolling. It's 1:37 am. yawn.
Here's another Marshall in the corner! It gets nice and loud down here. Now I just hafta find room to stick a drumset in.

What started out as kind of a joke ended up being a lot of fun. I think we got 8 or 9 replies. I'll have to dig 'em out and post 'em. No idea where they are. In a box somewhere is my guess.

No luck on Friday but by Sunday I think I had worn him down and he agreed to do a Death sketch. I also grabbed a copy of Kabuki #8 with a sketch drawn on it & a fun Kabuki patch (all for my wife who couldn'y attend). David's a good guy & an amazing artist.

I did this piece as a commission and after getting to this point I realized I completely missed the mark (after reviewing several emails) so I put it aside and started another from scratch. It's pencil on standard 11"x17" board.
Oh yeah, Happy New Year! I've been slacking off and relaxing but pretty busy at the same time, now I'm playing catch-up on a few projects. Today I'm continuing work on a Sandman commission based on #19 "Midsummer Nights Dream". It will be on 13"x19" board. This peice will have Sandman holding court in front of one of the travelling troupes wagons with Lady Titania and a bunch of little winged things and creatures that you see thruout the story some hidden in tall grass and in and around the edge of a forest so we'll have lots of plants, grass, trees, flowers etc completely around the entire piece, little glowing things, tiny fairies and the like, full blown watercolor.
I'll also be playing catch-up with a few post holiday posts. As soon as I can get it together. I've been juggling several complex jobs and I'm confused at the moment.
