Salacious Crumb Connoisseur Series Autographs by Wattographs

January 3, 2011

I first talked about Wattographs‘ Connoisseur Series of autographs last year, when they announced their Jabba CS piece, but in short their CS pieces tend to focus on behind-the-scenes names, such as designers, sculptors and puppeteers — sometimes people who have never signed autographs before. The Jabba CS is rather involved, and has had a number of names added to it since the initial announcement, so it’s a ways from being completed even though it started over a year ago. The Salacious Crumb version, which started in May 2009, was a lot less ambitious with only three signers. I didn’t know about the piece at the time, but was able to buy a completed one from a board member. It was available in both 11 x 14 and 16 x 20 sizes. This is the 16 x 20, which is quite large, but looks very impressive in person. I’m glad I was able to get it in this size, since that’s the size I chose for my Jabba CS. The frame is a stock frame I got from Michaels, but really seems to be a good match for the piece.

It’s signed by Tim Rose (who was the puppeteer for Crumb, and from whom I also have this autograph), Tony McVey (who sculpted the Crumb puppet), and Mark Dodson (who did the voice). I think it’ll look really nice next to my Jabba CS when it finally gets finished. Wattographs includes a nice certificate of authenticity with their CS pieces showing all of the people signing the piece, which I really like. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Jabba one looks like.
