So NOW it is sold out. Okay great, I am a little surprised it took as long as it did. This image is really powerful in my opinion. Anyone know anything about this guy? I was kind of surprised that he was not on eb until this thread.

Pretty much what Bloodthrust said. But if you want a little more background, here is a little blurb from a recent 1xRun release that I feel sums up his work nicely...
For nearly ten years, Brett Amory has been engaged in a series of works called WAITING - paintings that touch upon the urban dweller's quiet and often unnoticed hunger for "place" in environments that are generally indifferent to such aspirations of the soul. The pieces (such as the one here) have a meditative quality and a muted sense of pathos. The subjects are invariably commuters on their way to or on their way back from some station down the line; travelers who are physically moved on a regular basis, but seldom feel emotionally moved by their day-to-day experiences. The gentleman before us (whose form and visage seem perilously close to being enveloped by the surrounding darkness) is a poignant reflection of what we've all felt at one time or another. YOU may be feeling it at this very moment.

I wonder how they split the stock. I thought Waiting sold quickly for how many of his other prints are out there.

pretty sure sebastianfoster and postercabaret are affiliated, and lad is the proprietor of both (or at least has something to do with them). Either way, good people.

I really like #92 as well. The others not so much but haven't looked at them close enough to be 100% sure
