Art behind glass: Show off your framed art!

Picked up two pieces by Liam Sharp from Albert's booth at Baltimore Comic Con a few weeks ago.  Really fun time at the con this year.  I need to go to more shows as I tend to run into things that are not online (or maybe I'm not as obsessively checking as some of you).  To that point, Albert had a whole portfolio of new art that Liam recently gave to him, none of it even priced yet.  I saw this splash and pretty much knew this was the example for me.  Love the loose rendering, really different from the other piece I picked up which is a tightly rendered WW pinup.  It's huge, 21" x 16.5".  This is from GL Season 2, #7, page 22.  Written by Grant Morrison.

That's awesome!
I don't think I've seen any comic art that size, I need to experience it.

Outbid a Legend to get this during the Jon Berk auction. Kinda like to believe the “Fantom” was the first Black superhero? I’ve always been tempted to crack it out of the frame as I’d love to see the back and without the matting.

As I recall, he was white. One version of his costume was a full body wrap.

Got my X-Men Animated Series original art pieces back from the framer today. With the way I asked them to be framed I knew they’d fit perfectly into this slot on my modern/commission wall. I’d say I’ve maxed out the available wall space on this wall, no? 🤔😂

Got my art wall finished, and I'm officially out of wall space in my office.

I love the uniform look you were able to achieve. Can you share what you're using for the frames or are they custom?

Absolutely! I use the Mainstays frames from Wal-Mart. A couple tips about the frames:

1. Order them online, they are cheaper than buying them at the actual store. All but about 10 of mine I ordered online.

2. I've never had a single one broken during shipping - the Mainstays 3-pack packaging was developed really well to get your frame to you unbroken.

3. If you do go to an actual Wal-Mart, look carefully at the corners to make sure the frame or glass has not cracked (the weak spots are at the corners).

The snap frames are super simple, made with real glass and are very low profile so you can show off the art more than the frame. I love em, they're great. I made a cardboard template to help me make sure I spaced them out uniformly. Because at the time I was laying out my wall, I only had about 8 or 9 frames - so what I did was create this template and put all my nails in the wall for the frames I had yet to buy. That way, as I got more frames, I could just put them right up without trying to figure out how I had spaced them out a week or two before. Made it easy.

And, I lied about my wall space. I moved some things around and did up my other wall on the other side of the room. Now, I'm out of wall space.

A few of the published pieces from Wolverine #90 by Adam Kubert. I just used a basic black frame with a black mat. Framing double, triple and quadruple page splashes, I really tried to keep it basic.

Holy cr@p! Man, I would love to hear a little background on how you got these pages! Wolvie 90 is the single greatest comic issue of the run.

I agree with you Doc, one of the best books from the 90's.  Looks like he owns the whole book:

The fact someone owns the whole book actually makes me pretty happy. Wow. What an accomplishment. The magnitude of the story, the layouts and the issue itself deserve to be kept together whole.
