Sonic for Sale!

Scan of the original artwork.
As I mentioned on my old blog a while back, 20 years ago I submitted some art samples for the then-new Egmont title Sonic the Comic. I didn't get the gig as an artist (they wanted more of an adventure style) but I did become a regular writer on the comic.

The other day I found the original artwork to my sample black and white page (it must have been returned to me years ago) and now I've put it on eBay for auction. I'm quite pleased with the original monster designs I had Sonic encounter. 

Scan of the original artwork.

The size of the page is approx 37cm x 47cm. Black ink on Bristol Board. Excellent condition with no creases or stains. 

I'm also selling a few other items, including a Tom Thug page and a Pete and His Pimple strip (co-starring Mary Lighthouse and Uncle Pigg) from Oink! You can see all the pages on my eBay site here:

Bidding ends on Sunday. Good luck!

It's a great Sonic piece, Sadly, it ended up a bit too rich for me ^_^
