It looks better with that thing around it.
I must admit, it's pretty cool to have fans, especially when they decide to buy your artwork and display it on a wall like it was "real" art. At home, I keep most of my art under wraps — except for what I'm currently working on (and the occasional piece that's just too big to hide).
These are some pics from a trip to the home of James Santangelo, whom I came to know over the last few years through the Big Apple Con. I knew he was a serious fan when his girlfriend, Kate, made him a T-Shirt featuring a Spider-Man painting on it that he had commissioned from me... and then he wore it to the con to see me.
Said commission is the framed piece to the left of the pages from Mythos: Spider-Man. Such things will you find in "Paolo's Corner" of the Spider-Man room.
As you can see, he's a pretty dedicated collector... and my art seems to be in good company.
