With all this down time at home, I've been going through storage and chronicling my poster/print/etc collection (modern and originals) and taking pics for reference and organization which I have been meaning to do for years...my wife is way more excited about me doing this for insurance purposes lol.

Regardless, if anyone is interested, the Insta handle is: mypostercollection

Maybe post-Covid19, Billy will come over help take some good close up blurry pics...hope everyone is staying healthy.

BTW here is online link: https://www.instagram.com/mypostercollection/

Amazing idea. Never considered an alt-IG account for my posters, and am now going to have to do so.

Question for you: How are you handling framed prints?

I plan on just taking them off the wall and putting on the floor where I usually do with the other stuff bc of the decent natural light.
Posted the Mitchell Andre the Giant portrait in this manner as well...maybe bigger stuff I'll just shoot as is on the wall, who knows.

Really enjoying your IG feed. Just started one of my own for my posters, sketches and comic art if you would like to take a look:

Yep, but I'm referring to the rotation/rhythm of prints vs posters as I post.

great collection.
I started my IG on FEBRUARY 7, 2019 that features high-res digital scans with a focus on the screen printing: https://www.instagram.com/300dpi_posters/

i tag the @eb_artguide in most of my posts but never a response. Follow if you want, more for the nerd porn crowd.
719 posters listed to date, several hundred (483) more to go.

62 contributing artists and counting...posts daily


Follow or not, Peace
Trav
