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 :D but he said that Ocean probably had thrown it in the trash :(

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.

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. :wink:

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?
Cheers!

I am not after reprints... it's the originals that interest me :D

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.
here is the picture: http://shozan.sytes.net/~meth/minoltadimage7/ivanhoetest2.jpg

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.

OMG, another superb thread but again, it is impossible to write down all my favourite Amiga games covers scans - there is too many of them :o

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 :wink:

He has not many left, here is what he sent me a couple of month ago:
