Chaczyk - Edgar Allan Poe

Drawn 1983.07.07 - 2015 purchase

Artist is unknown, besides the name Chaczyk.. I can find little information on the artist, except that he produced a line of cachets for first day covers in the 1980s and 1990s, out of the Detroit area. This was purchased on ebay.. I am a big fan of Poe so I could not pass on this..

Samantha Johnson - business card.
I met Johnson at the Non-Sport Card show in Allentown, Pa. picked up a nice sketch card, but I really liked her Poe business card...

Brianna Renee - Padme Amidala

2018.01.21 Jersey Shore Comic Con, Toms River, NJ

Brianna Renee is a student artist, who set up a table at the Jersey Shore Comic Con. Brianna's tumblr stated she has been drawing since the age of 12, and is ready to share her art. I was impressed by her art and enamel pins, which were heavily influenced by Star Wars.  Therefore it was  a no-brainer that I would request a sketch of Padme..

Matthew Clark - Star Trek Mugato

2018.02.10 WinterCon, East Brunswick, NJ

Prior to the show, I had looked through some of the commissions that Matthew Clark had done. Lots of Batman and Wonder Woman. Both good choices, but I get a lot of artists who want to draw them, so my preference has been to ask for villains, since they are more interesting. I asked my usual question, what would you like to draw. Matthew's response, "When I am asked to draw what I like, you will get a tribble."

I came back with I have Star Trek! - I handed over the envelope and Matthew perked up saying he already knew what to draw, but did not tell me. When I returned I was pleasantly surprised to see the Mugato, a simian-like creature with white fur, a rhino horn and sharp fangs. The character appeared in A Private Little War season 2, episode 19.

Mathew Clark originates from Portland, Oregon. A long -time fans f comics, he has had the pleasure of drawing for many of his favorite titles, including Superman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Vampirella, Ghost Rider, Doom Patrol, Outsiders and others

When I went back to his booth to pick up the cover he handed me a Gorn. The Gorn appeared in 1967, Star Trek season 1, episode 18 The Arena. When 2 ships enter a guarded sector of space by the Metrons, they beam the captains of both ships to the surface of an unnamed planet. Here the Gorn, a reptilian creature, fights Captain Kirk in a trial by combat...
