"One of the best parts of collecting," Sarah Todd confides when we meet over video, "is when you bring a video game art piece to the frame shop, and they go: what's this? Is this from a photo? Haha. I like to let them guess a bit before I answer. Somehow, they’re always surprised and amazed when I say – it’s from a video game."
This has happened several times, as she has so far framed 14 art pieces in her (much larger) collection. "I just got two back from the frame shop: Kite City, from Guild Wars 2, and Roach, from The Witcher." The latter she obtained in a recent Cook and Becker auction. "I'm still terribly excited about winning the Roach auction, as it was the first C&B art print I ever wanted to buy. I am a big Witcher fan, but also relatively new to video game art collecting. When I discovered the Cook and Becker website a couple of years back, I dug in, found the Witcher 3 prints, and fell in love with the Roach art immediately. Of course, it was long since sold out by then."
