About

The world is my art gallery.

Sometimes you find your passion. Sometimes your passion finds you.

An illustrator and cartoonist, I've always been a visual person. Maybe that's why I love movies so much: the classics, the obscure, the so-bad-they're-good.

At some point my twin passions for graphic art and cinema finally came together when I discovered I could actually own the original posters for the movies I love. So I started collecting movie posters. Boy, did I collect. Which led to a problem: I ran out of wall space. That's where you come in.

You see, in my mind's eye I imagine the planet as a great big gallery. And I'm the curator. So I select the posters I offer with an eye for their impact; the colors, the text, the overall design and sometimes for their sense of fun.

I have been buying and selling posters full-time now for over a decade. In that time I went from being a city boy to living in the country, my home now the little cottage my wife and I built in rural eastern Ontario, Canada. From here I pack my posters into sturdy parcels and ship them to people all over the world, people who get the same thrill I get from them.

Because I know how much a beautiful piece of paper can mean.
