Ok those of you who know me are starting to get tired of me saying.. “this is a Holy Grail find ! ” Ha-ha … well take a deep breath because .. here’s a Holy Grail find ! And NO I did not paint this (!!)
At over 3 feet in length this original piece of art was used for a Mirrorman ray gun box, on the backside of the box. It appears to be gouche on board .. I’m tracking down the artists name as it is not signed. Colors are strong and vibrant, the style is very similar to other originals I have .. very nicely done ! If you’ve ever seen or collected original art you know to see the original is so much more detail than the reproduction. I love being able to dissect each stroke and watermark … very cool indeed ! and to think there are no others in the world … amazing !
I have to say I did not think it possible to track down original art like this. Over the last 6 years I was only able to buy a half dozen or so pieces related to toy or book related kaiju images. But in the past several months I’ve been able to double these finds, and not for the prices one would think these should go for 😉
This piece and others I’ve bought are over 35 years old but look like they were painted today. I will be sure and care for these and document them, as they are truly historic pieces of art… yes, Holy Grails !
