    Art display labels?

    I don't personally like the inset labels either... but it's certainly personal preference. The museum look I like a lot. I just don't necessarily have the room for it. But I think I might be able to make a compromise with a smaller version of those. My art room is primarily for my own enjoyment, but I do like the idea that someone could come in and be able to see what everything else at a glance. So I'd like to see if I can find a nice looking solution. I'll certainly keep you all updated if I do act on this. I'm debating as we speak whether or not to pull the trigger on a new piece of art. NORMALLY my rule of thumb is "If you need to think about it... DON'T buy it"... but this particular page came up for sale a few years ago and I liked it then... and there's something about it that I just really like and remember fondly. My meandering point being... if I pop for a new piece, I'll probably wait until it's being framed to act on this ... so I can hang it along with the new labels all at once.

    Art display labels?

    That's software right? I guess my follow up would be A - what do your labels look like, but more importantly, what do you print them on and how do you display them? The second question is really what I'm trying to get to. What's the best physical way to present a display label without it being a piece of paper or something. Got any pictures of what yours look like by way of example? Thanks
  4. Hi all - Curious if anyone either knows of a product, or has jury-rigged something that they use to display art information on the pieces of art they hang. I realize now that when I show people my art I'm often wasting a lot of breath telling them which comic it came from, which artist, what year.. etc... when it would be nice if I could neatly display that info along with the art... like in a gallery. Plus, I don't necessarily remember what page things are from... so it would be nice to just have the basic info out in the open like that. Ideally, I'd like to put a small tag on the glass covering up part of the matte, as I think it would get lost (and take up too much space) putting in on the wall beneath it. So I'd also need something that could probably wedge gently into the frame... as I don't want to adhere anything to the glass. But like I said, I assume others have run into this issue... would love to see how others have solved this and then steal someone else's hard work and take credit for it as my own. Thanks! Frank
  5. Well cast and enjoyable ... again. Another well made movie that happens to have super-heroes as the main characters. And for those of us old enough to have been comic book readers in the Silver/Bronze age... what the movies really capture SO well is the great days of Marvel continuity. Back in the day, when you read Amazing Spider-Man, Spidey acted a certain way... and when he showed up in Marvel Team-Up that month, whatever had happened in ASM had actually happened. And if Cap was the MTU guest? When you picked up Avengers, you might see him leave the Mansion with a note that says "want to see where Cap is going? Check out MTU #52 on sale this week!" It all felt connected and consistent, and it was great! The comics 100% do NOT feel like that anymore. But the movies do! And it's wonderful! Different writers, different directors... but ONE universe.

    Steve Ditko has passed

    Saddened because the world of comics lost one of the true greats who gave us one of the most iconic and instantly recognized and unique art styles of all time. Saddened because this man, who while he lived a long life, unfortunately was unable to take any pleasure in all love and appreciation comic book fans and professionals alike so wanted to shower on him. And lastly, saddened because at the age of 90, in the midst of a heatwave, this beloved man... was found dead in his apartment apparently a few days after he had passed... meaning no one had checked on him for a few days. I know he never had children nor married, but still. The totality of all this just has me monumental sad. Folks... check on your older parents, your grandparents... especially during difficult weather. And RIP Steve Ditko. You were a true original.
