4x6 Comic Art
August 29, 2006 10:10 PM   Subscribe

Inspired by a convention in 1999, First Day covers, and his grandfather's autograph collection, Jeremy Adolphson sends off 4x6 index cards to various artists with return postage, hoping for a doodle. 5 years on, he has sixty-five galleries (some NSFW) worth of art to share.

That's really fantastic! Shows that it can't hurt to ask (nicely).

They really, really are. Still... no Jack Chick. I suppose he's a difficult "get", as they say. Also, sorry to see no Gary Larson nor Bill Watterson. Whent hey say "retired" they MEAN "retired".

Talk about a "who's-who"... Gallery one was great enough for a collection on its own!

Gallery 58 could be mistaken as being a commentary about metafilter.

What a great find. And props to the artists that took the time to be nice to their fans.

Awesome. I imagine the collection will probably become valuable - all this original art.
