Finding original STC artwork is very rare (I don't recall ever seeing anyone selling it), so your best bet is to perhaps try and contact the original artists yourself? I know Nigel Dobbyn has sold a lot of his pages at Summer of Sonic, but I imagine most people would have bought his Knuckles pages, rather than those with Grimer.
Grimer was my favourite character in sonic the comic, I found him very interesting, because he could have easily operated independently from Robotnick, (and did on a few occasions) but he choose to stick by him. Also my favourite panel in sonic the comic is this one: media.sonicscanf.org/comics/sonic-the-comic/173/03.jpg
Looking at Grimer's eyes in that panel really makes me sympathise with the character
I sent an email to Rich Elson this morning about some of his pages, to which he said that he's been inundated with requests (some of which have been quite pushy, or just plain rude). He really is a lovely chap, and I know people here wouldn't say anything rude to him, but he has asked me to pass on that he is very busy, and that he may not always be able to keep everyone happy. To quote, "I don't want to come across as a miserable git but I have to prioritise my regular work."
Can't say fairer than that. Regarding Mick's work... There are one or two that have some nice poses, but I could take them or leave them. I couldn't pay £100 for them. :/f
I was quite close to an original piece of artwork featuring Grimer, what I did not anticipate however, was that somebody was willing to pay higher than £300.00! Oh well maybe next time, ill have more luck
it's not going to be cheap now you've just announced it on the forum i'm guessing we could be seeing totals of £300 again when bidding starts, which is why I'll never own any of Elsons art but glad you managed to get what you were looking for

*sigh* Me neither... ah well. At least for Elson it's good that these works are going for a fair amount, and having seen how many of these are going to dedicated STC fans and collectors it's good to see these pieces are going to good homes.
Man, you guys are DEDICATED! I was thinking of competing for Lew's script myself but I decided against it as I'm not super passionate about this kind of thing. Awesome stuff, though! Glad you both got what you wanted.
