For my fellow collectors…

My interest in gig posters began as a music fan.  Through the years I have gone to “lots” of shows, too many to count.  When I could, and when they were available I bought a poster.  Before I knew it I was a poster collector.  After almost two decades of collecting I started getting interested in making posters.  Funny, all those posters I have collected over the years are like reference material to me now.  For years I collected in a vacuum, nobody knew I collected and I really didn’t know anyone who collected.  Through the internet that has changed.  I have forged real life friendships with collectors all over the world.  When I headed to the GD50 shows in Chicago I printed up a little something to give to my collector friends.
