Original Artworks

I've been thinking about whether or not to sell original Ollie and Quentin Comic Strip artworks. I have hundreds of them stuffed in a drawer which is stupid. They're no use to me so why hold on to them? I guess the obvious reason is in case they're worth something one day but surely if they were it'd mean my strip was a roaring success and consequently I wouldn't need the money anyway. I can't see a reason to keep them beyond greed and sentimentality. I'm neither of those things. In fact, to date I've given them away to anyone who's asked. It's all good PR and I'm happy that they might end up on someone's wall somewhere.

Of course one other reason to hold on to them is because no-one wants them. In that case my kids have a worthless attic filler to look forward to when I croak... or a decent bonfire. Hey, perhaps they could combine the two... the fire and the croaking, I mean. A kinda Viking Cartoonist Funeral. What a way to go.

I'd sell mine, but I'd have trouble finding them in the chaotic pile they've been stuffed into in the cupboard...
