Either/or

Woulda grabbed ya both from MC4. Maybe then Tong wouldn't have been such an ass when I asked him if he would sign my print.

Same. Really admire the technical skill and craftsmanship, but don't think it's something that would ever end up on my wall


Exactly, I've already got too many where I was like ok $30-50 and reasonable shipping I'll take it. Almost like comic book collecting as a kid then think this really should be up somewhere. I have the Delort Seasons and Ruas Saburo I really like but no where to put them right now but they are great pieces. Collision would have been in that pile. I need a coffee table portfolio album.... and a bigger coffee table.

Interested to hear more about this as well. Kevin's always been super nice when I go hang at his booth at Comic-Con. Seems out of character.

Not the first time it's come up and won't be the last.

Collisions is incredible and its one of the best art prints of the year IMO.

Agreed.

It was fun talking to Kevin about this one at his booth. After seeing the gig print version he wanted the skeletal deer figures to stand out a lot more and asked the printers if they were up for a challenge. They were so he asked them to hit the blue color twice for the deer to make them really pop. I'm really glad he did, the printing on this one is amazing.

I randomly found this article about Star Wars/Jedi clothing and I was surprised to see Kevin Tong making a fact-filled appearance:
