A fresh batch of Brendan's original artwork is now on sale at Albert Moy's website (link)

Unfortunately the artwork from the previous posts (Zenith, Paradax, Mirkin, Arkham Asylum) has been hoovered up by private buyers. But there's about half a dozen other pieces still for sale.

Brendan: The art dealer Albert Moy has asked me for any more artwork I may have... I spend a day recently unpacking storage boxes and found some really old gems I had forgotten about. 

I came across a Paradax! and Zenith picture done around the time I was designing Zenith for 2000AD. It was pretty smudged as I had done it in pastels. I cleaned it up and then fixed it. Not the greatest drawing, but still, a collectable curio.

There's a nice A3 Paradax! drawing too.

Also, there 's a coupla sketches I did for Arkham Asylum when, for a brief moment, I was the artist on the project... It got put back and I was doing a movie or something and wasn't available. Anyway, Dave McKean did a far better job that I could have.

Even found an unpublished drawing from the 'Sometime Stories' era and some Freakwave scribbles. And some blue line color pages from Strange Days 2.

It'll all be up for sale from Albert ( in about a week I'd say.

Brendan: Albert Moy has aquired another cache of my original art. I'd say he's pretty much got most of my remaining originals now and is now the main agent of my comic art. Much of the art for sale has been drawn over a thirty year period and features collectible rarities like Zenith design pages (with Paradax in the pictures). Abandoned try-outs for Batman and Joker, and designs from unmade comic series like YoYo and Travesty. The standout piece is probably a very large Jack Empty color drawing (best Paradax villain) from an exhibition of my work staged at UKAC in London, twenty years ago. There's a some nice Paradax headshots too. And the first design drawings of Mirkin The Mystic. Even a few Freakwave drawings from the early 80s.

Go to where you can look up all the new material available.
