I have also bought original artwork from David Rowe... the Delta and Speedball artworks.
Sadly, no I haven't. I wouldn't mind his Highlander artwork though.Meth wrote:XtC... so did you buy any of Bob Wakelins artwork? I bought the Ivanhoe artwork a couple of months ago from him... and just like you i asked about the Ocean logo but he said that Ocean probably had thrown it in the trash
Though he may have sold his originals, he still has slides of work available for reprints - so I s'pose it's not the end of the world.
Infogrames bought out Ocean (and other software houses), so it's possible they have a the original or digital equivalent of Bob's Ocean logo.
Though the Delta artwork isn't Amiga related, I'm wondering if a new section on ExoticA is a worthwile project? Scans of original artwork? That is of course if the purchaser of the artwork is prepared to scan?Meth wrote:I have also bought original artwork from David Rowe... the Delta and Speedball artworks.
I am not after reprints... it's the originals that interest meXtC wrote: Though he may have sold his originals, he still has slides of work available for reprints - so I s'pose it's not the end of the world.
But yes.. if reprints are wanted then i think it's best to get them from the artist directly like with Wakelin. The Ivanhoe artwork is too big for my scanner... but i tried to photo it with my digital camera with bad results... the artwork is slightly bend, i did not fixthat before taking the picture and it's become a little shiny in the upper right corner.

Also the Speedball artwork is not in mint condition anymore, but Delta looks like new. I don't have the Speedball logo since it's lost... David thought the Bitmaps might have kept it or something?
And about prices.. i must mention that i recently got in contact with Steinar Lund and he wants £2000 each for his original artworks.
Ivanhoe artwork and box comparison
Also I have bought 2 more gamebox paintings from him that is Epic and Flyer Fox... and another guy here in Sweden bought 13 of his paintings so now there's a total of 16 Wakelin gamebox originals in Sweden
He has not many left, here is what he sent me a couple of month ago:
