Thought you all might get a kick of this. I've been guesting on a bunch of podcasts lately to discuss my weight loss... most of which are audio only.  But a few of them have been video.  And I always do them in my home office, so when they drop, there's normally a ton of framed comic art on display!  As you can see here. :D

Three pages back from the framer over the weekend...led to a reorganization of all the art on my walls! But it’s all well organized now, although space is running short!
The new pieces:

And now the reorg.  It led to the first wall being all modern art / splashes (with a few small modern sketches slid in)

small side wall is my two commissions (one done for me, one purchased second-hand)

and the main wall is all Bronze Age art. 
the final pic just shows the last two walls together with my reading chair

Yup, all my OA framed pieces take up a lot of area and combined with my commissions, my wall space is at a premium!

And this will pale in size to my next framing idea once my next piece comes in...

Another use of glass to show off your art. A few weeks ago, a received three inked pages from Victor Cifuentes which came in a tube. They were rolled pretty tightly, and remained curled out of the tube. You can see them on the thread involving shipping art. After posting them, and what I was doing to uncurl them, Eseffinga suggested that I place them under glass and leave them there while they flattened out because it had worked for him. 

As luck would have it, I own two art deco tables (supposedly from an old 1920's jewelry store) which has beautiful legs and a flat top I covered with glass. Following the suggestion, I put them under the glass. You know what? They look so good I am planning to keep them there (after a little clean up). The table top was dull and they gave it a real spark, as you can see below. Now, I would not do this with expensive pieces because it is not protective glass, and there is natural sunlight in the room. Whlle I can keep the blinds closed most of the day, I remain concerned about long term fading. But for now, they look great, IMO. And the "framing" was $0.

Convenience, and probably shipping costs.

Original mixed media work by John Alvin titled ‘A Superman’.  I bought this and was going to meet him shortly thereafter at the Chuck Jones Gallery in Old Town San Diego, unfortunately he passed away before that meeting could happen.  Will never part with this one...

It’s ‘framed’ and ‘behind glass’ so I hope animation art is okay here...

Wanted to share another piece.  This is an original production cel from The Last Son of Krypton Part I of the Superman Animated Series. It’s actually a two cel setup with one laid over the other, one of Jor El and one of Baby Kal El, it is also an original painted background.  

If you watch this episode you will not see this exact image in it’s entirety.  This scene occurred when Jor El put baby Kal El on the ground; the baby started walking away and at the same time the camera panned up Jor El’s body to his face as he stood up and watched baby Supes walk off.

Probably my favorite OPC even though I have similar pan and scan cels from Legacy Part II of Superman fighting Darkseid, throwing punches as the camera panned across the image rather than up the image.
