Just want to know what your opinions are about the idea of auctioning off all your artwork as one lot.

Since the price will be determined by the bidders and so long as there is no minimum bid requirement, price may no longer be an issue for the buyer.
Without a reserve price however, if the winning bidder gets awarded the entire collection for a small price, will there be enough content makers who'd like to auction off their artwork collections?

Is there an artist (vector/images) out there willing to auction off his art (collection)?

I have personally found that most contributors have a personal investment in their portfolios that goes beyond its pure monetary value. If you were to, for example, mathematically average out how much they are likely to make on the port in the next 5 years and offer them 70% of that, unless it matches their 'perceived' value, they are likely to be unhappy with that offer.

In fact, I get the distinct feeling that most contributors would rather sit on their port earning nothing than sell it for less than their perceived value of it.

That isn't to say contributors are wrong or right; there is a lot of emotional investment in one's media, so it's a tough thing to quantify. However, in answer to your question, you are likely going to have to offer something substantially more than you are willing to pay, or catch a contributor who is so disheartened with the business that they are on their way out.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

You don't see much buying and selling of portfolios because the value usually isn't there on either side. A lot of portfolios probably should be worth more because of the time and quality in them, but they don't have the best opportunity for growth to a potential buyer. So, it is a lot easier for the artist to continue to run them.
