The evolution of a middle-aged collector...

Pretty sure the collecting bug hit me in this order --> action-figures --> comic books --> baseball cards --> gig art --> art prints.

Matchbox cars > baseball cards > beer cans > coins > stamps > (deep powder (snow) days in college) > Phish posters > art prints / OG's.......

So I mostly collect art prints and originals. I still have all the other stuff except for the matchbox cars.

Thanks enablers. Until the next addicts meeting...aka...(print drop thread)

I have more gigposters than art prints largely because I like the aesthetic concept of the gigposter. Almost all of the prints hanging on our walls are from shows we attended, but I do like collecting both artists and bands I like. Not a big collector but it definitely is sort of a habit. Prior to this I collected records, but once I replaced my favorite cd's with vinyl I slowed down a lot. I've considered collecting a set of gigposters for a particular tour of a particular band for fun, but it's really not practical for me since I don't have any extra wall space or tons of expendable income.

Art in any form suits me. Its about the piece in general. Prop replicas, statues, weapons( mostly swords), prints, and masks make up the majority of what fills up my living space.

vintage guitar effects pedals. primarily focused on Electro Harmonix 60s-90s, but includes a ton of Maestro, Univox, Moog, Ross, Shin-ei, Roland and other weirdness.
been buying/collecting/hunting since i was a teenager, and before i knew it it was one of the largest collections in the world.
additionally, Ampeg portaflex fliptop series amps from the 60s-70s, and univox b-group amps from the early 70s.
if any of this means anything to you, you and me are cool.
i have more prints and posters than id ever know what to do with, but i dont consider myself an avid collector of them.

I love how it stayed on topic and everyone wrote a genuine response to the question.

Gig posters are my passion. I like collecting certain women gig poster artists. Sudyka has a very special quality. To me she is the Mucha of the 21st Century. Bell's people gig posters are like no other artist. It is too bad she hasn't been making any lately. Kathleen Judge has made some remarkable works too. The combination of different typefaces and image makes me vote for gig posters hands down. Also prefer the lesser known artists. I am the same about paintings - the women and lesser known artists are my favorites.

Mostly art prints but I will, now and then, grab up a local gig print from the past...
Now if the art catches my eye I will consider but the present financial officer stops most impulse buys. :oops:

It's weird. Started with gig-posters and then quickly moved to Mondo and film stuff with Rhys Coppers TMNT and Stout SW. But now I find I am moving away from anything with words on the print itself. For certain pieces, the art outweighs the annoyance of titles or band names, but for a lot these days, I specifically go after art prints or art print versions.
