Top 5(ish) Acquisitions of the Year - 2018

General art-related discussion.

Postby pewter14 on Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:30 pm

So it's that time of year again, always a fun thread ... I'll post the links to previous posts but know that some of those old threads show page after page of dead photobucket links.

2017 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=175224
2016 - https://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtop ... 2&t=170131
2015 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=162876
2014 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=148243
2013 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=128220
2012 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=104605
2011 - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=77808

Post 'em up folks!

As for me, I'll do 2018 in three pics ...

Pic 1) I'm not a completist but I do love what this poster is and is about so i'm trying to hunt down all the version of this one. I'm getting close to finishing off the TRPS set with a few picks ups this year ... that black one is proving elusive.

Pic 2) EMEK Pearl Jam Rome ... has to be one of my fave prints from PJ in years.
Also Stanley had a bunch of b&w prints he airbrushed at TRPS ... looked super sharp. So much so that the guy 2nd or 3rd in line bought THEM ALL. I was able to nab this on off his site.

Pic 3) Top pick up of the year. He's a rescue, one year old terrier corgi mix.

I've probably done more wheeling and dealing this year than I am used to, but these are some of my favorite print and OG acquisitions from this year.

Yeah, that was a fun trip down memory lane. It's interesting to watch tastes/interests change over time.

Nice mix of posters Fredo! I like the Child Bite. It has a Kleinsmithy/Burnsy/Duggany look to it.

Congrats Pewter on all those TRPS. Good luck with the black one for next year.

And DonPiano that Taylor looks sharp!

Thanks. It's killer in person. I wish I'd gotten the big OG as well, but limited finances and all that noise.
