I much prefer Michael's prints that are designed to be actual prints (preferably screen prints).


Fair points. I would concur, as the dimension/depth play in his original works is where he really shines. This is lost in print form, but is a good option for those that resonate with a specific image.

The next screen print is not too far away.

The "smoke" from the eyes turning into clouds is an awesome idea. :)

The printing is nice too. Not something I'd pay USD650 for but I get the appeal.

It was a local artist's studio. Pretty surprised to see the Reeder. And the studio tbh.
