"Untold Tale" leans in my den at home. It's a nice conversation piece.

          

And this one hangs in my office at work.....

As further proof that the term "creator" is probably not the best one for comic book writers and artists, the talk around the office when I first put this up was "Jeff knows the 'creator' of The Hulk!"

Awesome, Jeff!  Will definitely think of a silver frame for the next one I hang!

What steps do you guys take to avoid art being stolen from work?  I have pieces that I'd love to display in my office, but I am concerned about them walking off.

Jeff--Those are some great pieces.  Look real nice on the wall (or leaning)!

George-  Be careful.  I lost around 25 pieces or so a few years ago.  Not a good feeling at all.

That Hulk commission is one of my favorite pieces of the Green Goliath.  Beautiful!

They look fantastic, Jeff! The Hulk at work is very smart. If someone sasses
you during a meeting, just stand next to it and tell them they wouldn't like
you when you're angry.

Excellent work, JB!

Sounds like quite a funny anecdote.

Did people ever get surprised by the Hulk piece?

Just a question: where should we post other Byrne art pics of framed splases and covers?

Maybe a new thread?

Once they are framed, the pictures are not just flat scans that usually go to the New Artwork thread...so maybe Byrne framed pieces (no commissions which we can already see here) deserve their own thread too.

thanks!

I think the New Artwork thread is fine for framed pieces that aren't commissions.

I have a new round of framing I'm waiting on and a new digital camera on its way to me as I type.  Hopefully I'll have a new contribution (or two) to this thread very soon!

Here they are!





I posted larger, individual pictures of each in the original commission threads "Sorry, I Can't Stay..." and "Family Quarrel" respectively.

I like the black frame/matting look.  I plan to use that as well.  Nice set, they look great together

Awesome Joe.  Love the black it looks good.  That is the way I am going with mine as well. 

I kind of like that green paint you have what is the name of that color?  The girl wants to repaint gree and that looks good.

The green is called La Fonda Grassy Knoll, it came from Lowe's.  I had a green bedroom when I was a kid and the bright colors go well with all the comic book stuff so it seemed appropriate!

Yeah it is very a good combo.  The green and black do very well together.

Do you use nails to hold the frames up?  I found some picture hangers from 3M with "Command Adhesive" and am trying to find the best way to hang up my commissions without putting holes into my apartment wall.

I'd never trust the adhesive, guaranteed or not. I use the frame hooks with a nail driven into a wall at an angle. There is not way my artwork is going to crash to the floor..... well, short of some serious yanking, etc.

Apartment walls can be very easily filled in and fixed. with both minimal time and at a cost less than that. :)

At the risk of sounding silly, I really like the green colour on the wall as additional framing.  It actually makes the b/w pics inside the black frames really pop.

Good job, Joe!
