Hi All,
New to APF and super excited! Been a huge fan of paper art for years.  Been amassing paper seriously for about 15 years.

I have a smallish collection around 500 posters. But I do have lots of different types of paper, lithographs, small run prints, and different types of art. Most of the art is done by people that I work with or have gotten at different conventions such as ComicCon to CTN.

I just got my first frame from Robert for my Thierry hates "French Grande" Star Wars. Once I get it in the wall. I'll add some pictures.

welcome to the jungle

I used to set up at SD Comiccon for many years, until 2003, I had set up since the 1970s.

note: when you write f-r-e-n-c-h- g-r-a-n-d-e the forum owner, Thierry, hates that term (he's French)

so when you enter f-r-e-n-c-h- g-r-a-n-d-e it becomes Thierry hates "French Grande" because Thierry is a snob

 welcome1 to APF, Chris!
Looking forward to seeing exactly what you collect!
Very curious about your statement -- "Most of the art is done by people that I work with..."
When you're ready to elaborate, I'm all ears.
 cheers

Thanks for the heads up on the 'Thierry hates "Thierry hates "French Grande""' been wondering about that term

I'll try to take some pictures of my other film paper and collectibles ( I also have 10 cells but that's not paper but I still think they are outstanding)

When I was younger I collected comics and different figures. But those take up so much space especially some of my larger ones like my Kong vs V-Rex weta statue. And I have close to two dozen different LOTR sideshow figures but most  are boxed up in the attic.

The collection sounds like a great mix, Chris.

Post some of your figures, too, if you'd like. As well as the cells. There are sections on the forum for different types of collectibles.

his partner on the site for a small bit set up a filter so when you typed his username 'eatbrie' that it came out 'eatshit'

Thierry was good natured about it.. he let it go on for a couple days

Oohhhhh....  For all this time I just thought that Thierry really, really preferred smaller posters...  Huh.
