This site is meant to introduce myself and some of the art I handle. I am known by virtually every major collector and auction house for my knowledge, experience, and love of this art form. I've sold many of the most famous (and pricey) pieces of vintage animation art in existence, but also carry many less expensive although still classic one of a kind pieces.
This site is not designed to be a comprehensive approach to collecting animation art. Every beginning collector should be strongly encouraged to use as many sources of information (web sites, galleries, auctions, printed information) as possible in order to make themselves more aware and competent buyers. There is such a wide array of art available, a wide range (and sometimes disparity) in prices, and a wide selection of dealers to purchase from, that great time and care should be taken when making these decisions. Please don't take this research lightly - every collector finds the dealer they deserve.
