Not much in the way of mass appeal but as a whole I kinda love the insanity of it.

yeah, I think it's a great mix of cult, classics, and art house stuff. Impressive array.

Haven't seen Under the Skin, but for me, that poster wins the con. Clockwork and Enter the Dragon are close behind.

Graduate is just amazing work, but I'm not a fan at all of the movie, so hard to enjoy the poster even though I think it's fantastic looking.

Sounds like everyone had an awesome time. I would have loved to go, but couldn't really convince the wife that this was how we should spend our first anniversary :lol:

Screenings sound like they were great! I definitely need to watch The Fountain sometime, but I am for sure carving out some time to stream The VVitch this weekend (although I already know I don't need the poster).

I will definitely keep my fingers crossed that I can score on the regular drop of The Archivist, though... sweet merciful crap :shock:

As for other prints, love Enter the Dragon (I'm sure that was great on 35MM) and will probably have to try and score a Reg for my brother. Everything that Kurtz and Woodson put out looks phenomenal (I do hope that Woodson has some of those AQL prints left to sell online, I should ask). And I have also decided that I really need an Erica Williams landscape piece in my life... wow, congrats on those scores :clap:

Thanks for sharing all the memories and experiences (and pickups). Hopefully I can join you rascals next time :pint:

Hah! So much hate. Maybe I'm just a sucker for Predator.

Jay's booth was the hidden gem of the weekend.
Jay brought out 2 archived copies of Ferris Bueller for the weekend. $500, which I was happy to hand Jay first thing.
Even better since I got in line at 9am and doors opened at 10am.
He also had a Hum + Flaming Lips that I believe Dan Danger bought before the doors opened.
And one of the new subscriber 193 fish prints, a copy of Ten Bathas , and TON of awesome pencils and decent sized paintings.

It was very interesting to see Danger's line turn into a disneyland sized queue while Jay quietly sold off some rare pieces in those first moments.
ALSO, nicest dude on the planet. Kind enough to do this sketch for me while we chatted on Sunday.

I am just catching up, that Under The Skin print is great. And I love the film. Just good to see something a little different these days to be honest.

Not sure if anyone posted this yet, but after the OMG book panel you could buy the book and have it signed and doodled. Got a pretty neat Ryan/Horkey mammoth among other treats.

Since the attendees weren't listed on the event there was a fairly small turnout. I believe the artists on hand were: Horkey, Santora, Dan Black, Beckett, Taylor, Tong, Ryan, Nate from DKNG, and of course Mitch. Apologies for not remembering the moderator.

The book itself is really great and worth a pickup.

100% agree. That panel was probably my favorite event at the con. Plus Mitch was selling the book for $15 cheaper at the panel than in a store

Here's my book
