The Rory Kurtz Thread

General art-related discussion.

I was expecting $650-750 for the APs, so its not crazy to me that they are $960, good on Rory for knowing he only gets one chance to sell these copies, as people that REALLY want them will pay it.

Indignation at AP price is normally followed by 100% mark up on EB.

You could buy some killer early prints for that, including KT's Alien if you can find one.

The best $1k screen print definitely isn't a movie poster.


Truth. It's 5-10 firehouse+gammalyte gigposters.

I assumed it would be a screenprinted fake $1 billion dollar bill. With like Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin kicking King George III in the nuts or something.

I only casually avoid the plague. Frankly it’s not really an issue where I live.

Yeah, I have no interest in the print... it's nice, but just not for me regardless of price. Mad props to Kurtz for charging a crazy amount for a regular screenprint because he knows there are suckers out there that will buy them. Idk if the drop happened yet or not, but it's funny that people would drop this much for a commissioned print yet rag on the street art stuff that's priced around $500-$1000 on the release but on way better paper and way better printing, lol.
