    Tito_Villa's Collection

    Ok well there are a few teasers until i get the internet at my new place thursday

    Firstly i thought i might share a few pics of some of the original artwork that i own. I got in touch with Glenn Chadbourne around 2 years ago and have had him work his magic on quite a few projects for me over that time. Firstly is a picture of me and my girlfriend that i sent to him and then is the painting (with a Dark Tower theme).

    Part of a very drunken night around Nottingham for my birthday. Anyway during the day we got talking and i asked if he would be willing to take a private comision of me and my girlfriend, now he has never done anything like this before because he's so busy with book covers and internal artwork ... and this is what he came up with ...

    Thanks ... Don Maitz is another of my favourite artists and he has come up with some GREAT Stephen King Artwork. One piece was specially commissioned for Centipede Press' artbook Knowing Darkness and was his take on Duma Key one of my favourite books. He released a very limited number of prints of the painting, so limited that he never did a full print run and the few that are arround are 'artist proofs'. Here is mine with a small remarque at the bottom, it now takes pride of place in the livingroom....

The Colorado Kid S/L by PS Publishing and it was my first ever signed book by Mr King. Its in mint condition and has a nice pen and ink remarque by Glenn of a piece that Mr King bought off him!

    Wow! Nice art and Stephen King collection. Around Christmas time I started checking out Glenn Chadbourne's art for Stephen King, I'm a fan of his art

    Gleen does some fantastic work, he's one of my favourite artists and he was the first one to be good enough to complete a remarque in one of my books ... a gift edition of 'The Secretary of Dreams Vol 1'

    When CD offered these remarqued Full Dark No Stars, I decided against ordering.
    I liked the Secretary of Dreams books quite a bit, but not enough to go for a Chadbourne original.

    Boy, how could I have been so stupid!!!!!
