Thanks guys I couldn't be happier. Bezt was a pleasure to talk to. Congrats on the sketch treweman. It really is great. Just be prepared for some dings on the paper here and there. If you're the sort bothered by that, they are noticeable.

It was nice talking w you BB8 and a few others but I was in my own world yesterday and not particularly chatty. I wasn't prepared for the sheer size or beauty. I don't think I could've fit The Mountain Will Fall into my house.

The sketch has some dings, but I don't think they detract from it - they're not super noticeable unless you're examining it up close, though it definitely has a some wear akin to a beat-up sheet of glassine. There's nothing akin to a huge crease or obvious dent or big tear, at least not from what I remember in checking it out. But the velium I think makes it not as significant of an issue as paper, and for the price and size of an ink piece by Bezt I think it was definitely worth it treweman - I preferred it over the print given how great the linework looked in black and white. Congrats!

it's the actual drawing he used for the print. The imperfections in the paper just add to it and makes it better in my opinion.

Agree w you guys it's a great piece and prelim sketches for prints tend to take some abuse.

I have one 4 inch tube in my apartment and no paper. If I did it, you'd get the print(s) rolled in the plastic sleeve the gallery gives me and then put in the tube.

Up to you bruh

I have to admit that even at the last I hesitated. The sketch is quite large, which means that it will take up much needed wall space, and given that I almost always re-frame art that I acquire, there will be a significant added expense because of the size. And then there is the print. I came very close to passing on the sketch in favor of trying to acquire the print. I love the colors and the look ... So, I boldly comment that I am underwhelmed with what I saw online, and then turn around and buy an original from the show. In my defense, I’ve wanted something by Etam Cru for quite a while now, and though I would have preferred a joint effort by both Sainer and Bezt, for me, TWWLF is a very strong image. Not my favorite (Galimatias takes that honor - if you decide to sell, you know how to reach me), but certainly near the top, and the price is appealing and I get to scratch that itch.

Many thanks to JKW3000, GiantBoyDetective, and especially BB8 for sharing with the EB community.



NICE!! Congratulations dude, you're not going to regret it. It's really nice and a bargain at that price. I'm jealous.


Congrats also treweman. With a lot of deliberation and a bit of Scotch you picked a beautiful work!
