      I was wondering what happened to the original art from the later King’s Quest games which were hand painted? I remember they sold lithographs from KQ6 but haven’t seen any since the article in Interaction. Are they forever gone, or does anyone have them? It would be a shame if they were no more.

      I have seen some of the hand painted art on eBay, but not that often!

      Most are forever gone. Some do pop up on eBay. Some art we have acquired for our archival projects, but it has been mostly photocopied material and not original material from the King’s Quest games. We continue to work to get original art and design material from all of Sierra’s games for our archival projects.

      Your best bet is to keep an eye on Ebay. That’s how I got a KQ6 Lithograph, and a KQ4 Manual and KQ Guide signed by Roberta Williams. This site sells copies of the KQ7 poster though: http://www.artistsuk.co.uk/acatalog/ARTISTS_UK__MISS_ELAINE_E__HOUSE__69.html

      I own a bunch from Gabriel Knight I, and also have an original concept piece from KQ6 and an original panel from KQ7.  If anybody has other original art and is looking to trade, email me: salzberg1 at gmail — I’d love to hear from you.

      I’m sure most fans here know this, but The Art of Sierra and Sierra Archives project is continuing to seek original Sierra materials, including but not limited to art, for preservation. I would love to get in touch with anyone owning such materials to arrange to have them scanned. brandon@sierra-archives.com.

      I doubt most would be willing to part with their art… but the most active Sierra community I know of is:

      You can check there, to see if those that might own some art might at least be willing to send SCANS of them.
