No idea who signs on to this site anymore, but for those interested, the first draft of the Patrick Nagel biography is nearing completion. As I had hoped, it's drawing the interest of several agents and publishers alike. Of course, this is the very first of several hurdles we need to clear, but I'm pleased at the progress thus far.
In other news, signed serigaphes do seem to be in short supply. Those that are up for sale on EBay are extremely high priced and not selling at all. That doesn't concern me, because it's just more people trying to make a fast buck. More important is the lack of genuine pieces to be found ANYWHERE. Lots of commemoratives out there, but far fewer lifetime, numbered and signed than there were a year or two ago.
All this leads me to suspect that even more pieces were destroyed than I'd previously calculated. However, everything could change if the book gets traction, is made into a film or somehow hits the media in a big way. i imagine that if that were to occur, more genuine pieces would come out of the woodwork.
In any event, I expect the book to be out there early to mid 2016. Election years are not the best times to release a book, but you gotta play the hand you're dealt!
