Seems like I'm always a step behind in terms of these print drops. I check 'Posters 411' as my source for new release dates but am wondering if there is any other ways that people get information. Thanks!

I keep up to date by frequenting the boards, and following my favorite artists on Instagram. You can also sign up for newsletters on your favorite artist's websites.

Here is a good list of Artist Instagram accounts.

Instagram has to be the most useful tool these days. Galleries & artists seem to put all of their release info on IG these days. I feel way more "connected' with IG than I do with mailing lists, twitter, or poster blogs.

best advice that has been given (though instagram is a great place to look too). but not enough can be about the way codeblue takes a new member under his wing and teaches them the ropes. its how many of us got the hang of things. private message him for sure.

I 4th this notion. He's not much of a typist though. I asked him if I should have paypal automatically sign me in, and all he said was, "duh".

I am surprised he still did not write one his infamous advises up in here actually. He usually stays on top of it, it seems.
