Interesting ... especially since he is now competing with GameOnGrafix, who paid to buy his art library back when.
Working: Not Enough
Projects: Too Many

I forgot about scott buying his graphics package. What gets me is that the guy wanys 150 bucks for most of his side art that you can get from game on or elsewere for $60.00 or so. I bought a whole robocop art kit from c.a.g. years ago. The side art and cpo were nice but the maquee was crap. His prices were competitive with scott at that time i guess he got greedy or something.

Since reading your post this morning, I have had a look at prices for stuff on the CAG site versus GoG -- specifically prices for art related to the Exidy 440 series of games (Cheyenne, Crossbow, Chiller, etc.).

WOW!

GoG is less than half the price in many instances.

Also interesting to note that some of the artwork on CAG is tagged as "ClassicArcadeGrafix.com Exclusive", even though GoG has the same art (as do those who were part of the BYOAC group buy of the CAG library).



If I decide to go with "standard" artwork on my Exidy 440 Multi cab, I'll be going to Scott (and he was featured in that recent arcade book - not mine, but is a good book and Scott is featured in a blurb as one of the MVPs of the Arcades).
