A few factors led to way bigger lines than we've ever seen ...

1) Chris Shaw and Alex Fischer went on KTVU Friday morning and had a 4-5 minute segment about the festival. TRPS folks were saying the website got a ton of traffic and TRPS membership signups right after it aired. See here ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jzk8jJN ... e=youtu.be

2) Chuck's print was teased and then previewed in full after the "don't worry about getting there early" advice. I had no idea Chuck did the print when I was saying "eh, come at like 8:30 - 9, you'll be fine" in the TRPS thread.

This was my 11th TRPS and by far the most packed I've ever seen, and it was the classic poster collectors as well. As Corey alluded to above, Stanley Mouse had a line at least 10-15 deep the entire day, what a machine he was. I've never seen the classic artists have such deep pools of people consistently throughout the day.

The variant release at Chuck's booth around 1 PM ... that was frothy. There's a pretty insane panorama pic that'll get posted eventually of the folks 3-4 deep for the 270 degrees of Chuck's booth. It was nuts.

3) Mondos flying in from out of town.

Fixed.


Blue's addendum seems right :neutral:

Was in TRPS line before 9. Missed out on getting the TRPS event poster, and Chuck's 40 numbers were gone when I entered. Also drew a blank on the TRPS variant lottery. After the TRPS variant lottery sales were opened up to anyone and I was able to purchase a WSP 2016 Parchment variant at about 1:30 PM. There was still plenty of other stuff still available at this time, variants, tests, regulars, art prints, ladies, and gig posters.

I did not like any of them.

Now I finally opened the tube with the Greensky Bluegrass print and that's a really nice looking one!
