These two sketches are from the 1994 Motor City Comic Con....

Image

Image

The photo was taken at the 1999 San Diego Comic Con by the brother of the guy I worked for at the time. Since he lived in San Diego and had a couple kids, I offered to pay their way if they could get me some swag from Stan and Sergio.

I bought this page from Stan at the 2007 Motor City Comic Con

Image

I really had to fight with the scanner and photo Editor to get a decent scan of it.

This is the first piece of original art I ever bought, it was listed on ebay with a relatively low buy-it-now price.....

Image

This piece is just as large as the previous, but the actual artwork is perfectly centered and just the right size for the scanner....

[EDIT] These two are actually new scans of the art made on a larger better scanner..... :D

Cool drawing included in one of the books that I got from Fanfan, sent along with a bunch more of the Paquet editions of Usagi Yojimbo. Great guy, and great web-site, check it out!

Wow, i am glad to be the first one to post a comment on your gallery, i was waiting for yours and Go's one in fact !

Great collection, i really like your original arts : your ebay one is terrific, the page you bought from Stan is very original (i didn't read the story yet but i understood with the last sketchbook) , and the typical french signing Stan made for you is very cool !

Don't you have one more original Art at Motor Con both made by Stan and Sergio ?

Thanks for your kind words, i don't merit it, but it always make pleasure !

We knew you had a great collection, moreover you have some really cool original arts, i am glad for you !!!

You have an excellent collection Steve. The coloring on the original art is interesting. I haven't seen that type on Usagi artwork before.

Very cool collection, Steve!

Interestingly you've got # ___ of 300 of Glimpses of Death!?

I especially envy you for that alternate ending of Bridge of Tears, but I take solice in the fact that it is in good hands now (alas, not my own... :wink: ).

Great stuff there Steve... especially the "original" page ;)

I think one of my h/c is without number as well Thomas, but I'd have to check through them all to see which.

Have a look in my thread for something similar (where my avatar comes from) but different. I assume Sensei did the colouring on this one (whereas Tom Luth did on mine).

Great stuff Steve! I am envious of your alternate ending page. I was too busy excitedly getting my UY101 cover to look much at the other things there - not that I could've afforded both anyway! I do vaguely remember seeing it there. Glad it's in your hands.

Thanks Morna-San.
I had asked Stan specifically for the Issue #99 Alternate Ending page prior to the MCCC, so he was holding it for me. I think I showed it to you at the convention, probably over at David Petersen's booth.

Thanks Fanfan.
I did forget to post the MCCC sketch. I was so happy to get the Issue #99 Alternate Ending page, I almost forgot to ask Stan and Sergio for sketches.

There are a few Dojo members who will recognize this 2007 calendar, my
copy of which I brought to the 2007 Motor City Comic Con in order to
have Stan sign and add the kanji at the top.

I know, not the greatest scan. I really need a larger scanner.

It's interesting to see what variance there is between the sketches in the h/c editions. Perhaps I will get around to scanning mine, if I don't bust the spines in the process of getting them on the scanner ;)

(and after SDCC, hopefully I will only have two left to get!)

I tried to make each drawing in the HC editions unique. That is why they took so long to do, and why I don't do them anymore. A head sketch is much easier.

The Dragon Bellow Conspiracy (#101 / 1500)
I wonder just how long did it take to draw 1500 of those little tip-in plates for this volume?

Lone Goat and Kid (#102 / 1000)
