Original Red Dwarf Smegazine Art

Post by Into The Abyss »

As a bit of a memorabilia Magpie, I love to obtain things that catch my eye. Here's some of my Red Dwarf Smegazine pages owned. The two pages are mixed media, They have been penned, coloured, with a plastic cell overlayed with speech-bubble dialog. Both are from 1992 and are signed by the famous Eagle , Beano, Victor, 2000AD, Commando artist, Alan Burrows.

Red Dwarf Smegazine, page #7 is from 1992 and is signed twice by the artist. Once underneath the speech cell in the bottom right-hand corner and reads, Alan Burrows,93. And again to the right-hand side of Rimmer's hand.

Hey, no problem friend. Nice to give these pages an airing after being stored away. Love too that you own some Eagle art by Alan Burrows. Man's got so much talent, it's unreal. Anyway, to own one of his pages to me is thrilling. Well done! I'm green with envy. :mrgreen: ;)

PS. Here's the 1990 Dan Dare Exhibition concept art that I own. Wish I knew the artist. Well executed though (see below).

Recently dug out another Red Dwarf artwork. This time not as elaborate and colourful the other two, but a B&W page from Red Dwarf Smegazine issue #4 from June 1992.

Here's the original page that I own and the colourised version that featured in the Smegazine. I find a lot of detail was lost once the colour was added. In my opinion it looks better uncoloured. 8)

Sadly due to colourisation process, likely using a cell overlay, the published page has the blotting paper effect in which the colour bleeds out giving the image a blurry feel resulting in loss of detail.
