FD-006; I think the frame melds with the image pretty well.

Wow! PEZ!!! I think Sin Dance is the only FD I want that I still don't have.
That's an awesome frame job... makes me want it even more.
Did peacedog frame it for you?

I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.

Christ do I feel good today! A poster you haven't seen and one you want 8) No, Peacedog didn't do this one. I had planned to frame it myself but couldn't find an acceptable mat or at least not viewing samples online, so I went to a local shop to preview mat samples. I got talking to the guy and he was really cool, I'd like to have a local framing friend, so I let him do it. Originally I'd wanted green for the outer mat, but that looked to Christmasy (is that a word?), so went with the red. I'm pretty happy with it. I will say, in all honesty, Peacedog just has the eye and feel for the art that really makes it POP. This doesn't pop, but I'm still happy with it.

This is one I kick myself over. I had a chance to pick one up for like $100 5-10 years ago in an S.F. poster shop and I passed on it. ARGH!!!!

That's awesome! I'd have a hard time letting it go, too. :clap:

Just finished this up today. It was my first time buying an open back frame and assembling everything myself. Learned a lot of lessons, but I think it turned out great.

Thinking of doing these two up like so. Maybe see what matte colors the local framer has but you get the idea.

What if you went for a more teal matte for the regular print?

I think framing both would be awfully ostentatious. I would be willing to help you become unostentatious.

Sick!

I love framed art that you don't necessarily have to hang, makes it feel more like a standing OG.
