Shelf Porn | A collection to fall in love with

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to Shelf Porn! Because we love you, today we’re presenting Jason’s massive collection of original art, graphic novels, toys and much, much more.

If you’d like to see your collection featured here on ROBOT 6, you can find instructions on how to do so at the end of this post.

And now let’s hear from Jason …

*****

My collection takes up a large portion of my house. I live in a small townhouse, and until recently, most of my things were in storage. Now that the kids are out of the house, I’m able to expand.

My kids and I have been going to HeroesCon in Charlotte since 2000. I always pick up artwork when I’m there. It’s been a good mixture of original art and prints. I also have a habit of picking up cool tings I see on sale, so most of my collection doesn’t focus on a particular character, company or style.

The shelves and walls are also in constant flux. Some of the art in the photos have already been swapped out for things I got at the last convention. Only about a third of by toy/figure collection are on display, so they get swapped out on a regular basis to make it look fresh.

The front hall of my place isn’t shown in any of these photos. It’s also covered in display items, but not anything geeky.

I also have a lot of stuff at my office, but I’ll showcase those at another time.

The living room. The center art over the TV is from my friend Lee Miller. The Avengers print is by George Perez and each of the figures is inked by a different inker. It’s signed by all but one inker and the colorist. The Phoenix print is signed by Dave Cockram.

The top shelf should be familiar. The Doctor Who print above it is the Van Gogh exploding Tardis and underneath you can see my Archie digests.

The other side bookcase. The second and middle shelf hold the custom hardcover books I had made before the binder I liked went out of business.

The back wall with another complete Archie story.

Bookcases behind the couch.

Star Trek and Batman glasses, along with the many sizes of R2-D2.

More glasses and the Adventure People safari play set. The Tardis pillow was made by Kat Price, one of my daughter’s friends.

More glasses and a few taters.

Did you know the DC Digests fit perfectly in an old CD crate?

The Moon Goddess is another by my friend Lee, and the Tardis was painted by my daughter.

The Joker is another by Lee, and the two Batman pieces are by Bo Hampton.
