Thanks. I'll just paste what I wrote in a different thread. :P
Talked to Jordan about the smoked plexi. He said he wanted viewers to go up close to the piece and admire the details, and also that it makes the experience voyeuristic, which it does.

The gallery gave me the option to go with clear or keep the smoked plexi. Decided to keep it, as it was the artist's intent.
Visibility of the image varies throughout the day (depending on how much light comes in) which makes for fun interaction every time I look at it.

Awesome. Thanks for clarifying. It definitely makes sense.

Dave McKean was using smoked plexi for his Nitrate paintings to give them an aged feel & for similar clouding/voyeuristic reasons I think. I actually ended up reframing mine with a museum clear, because the smoked plexi was hiding so much great detail unless it had super hot gallery style spotlight on it, but also throwing off so much glare in bright enough light to see through it well. Have the smoked plexi in storage for posterity.

Contributing to the thread a bit, I found some time to get Escapo from Paul Pope framed up this weekend.
Like a lot of his originals, it's kinda huge for comic art. The frame's a bit of a monster. A little more ostentatious than I usually go, but I felt like the character of the piece warranted the extra size and flair in the moulding just this once. Dunno what Paul Pope would think of it, but I actually dig it lots. Now hanging on my office wall for inspiration.

The flair in the frame works perfect with it. :clap:

What are the dimensions of the piece without the frame?

Thanks. I felt the same way when I went that direction with the molding selection. Normally I'm all about cleaner, smaller, less obtrusive profiles, and letting the art speak on it's own. But this just fit the character so completely when I was sifting through options, I rolled with it. Since it's in my office by itself, I don't have to worry about how it jives with other pieces.

The piece is roughly 17" x 22", or about twice the normal size of comic OA. A standard modern comic art board is 11" x 17". Pope's work is often a good deal larger than most. His original pieces vary in size and proportion a good deal from what I've seen, but sizes at 15"+ x 20"+ are not uncommon for him.

I have a few original pieces I've gathered through the years. I go to a small show IX which features Imaginitive Realism (Fantasy, Sci-Fi art) with a lot of artists that do work for Wizards and do Magic The Gathering Cards. I have not played magic for years but I really enjoy the art

I have wanted a piece by Ken Keirns since about 2012 but the timing has never been right for me when he has shows. This year I decided one of my goals was to add a piece by Ken to the collection so I made sure I had a nice war chest ready for this show. His new show "Short Stories" opened today at Rotofugi and I am proud to say that the beauty "And Like That...She's Gone" will be coming home once the show is over in December. Luckily there were 2 pieces I was interested in because my first choice "Snow Day" sold before my email arrived. I actually think I like the story telling of this piece more then the other so I am thrilled I ended up with this one. :D

Love the Pope and the framing choice. Totally hear you on the feel. Congrats!

Picked this up yesterday after having it stretched at Furthur Frames. It came up in an auction earlier this year. It was unattributed - just said it was an "abstract girl painting" or something like that. Guess it's still unattributed, but I thought maybe, just maybe, it could be some sort of Choe study. There's some sort of signature or scribbles at the bottom, but I haven't been able to make sense of it. Haven't had any luck getting in touch with the man himself either. Flat file behind it for scale. It's huge.

I thought it was a Choe as soon as I saw it.

Definitely a "choe study", whether or not its actually by him. An interesting pick-up for sure.
