Re: Breeze Block Gallery 2013/14

Story time! I wasn't going to say much more until the issue was resolved with the artist (Mike Egan), but it's squared away now, so I guess we're good. Four paintings that just sorta disappeared when Breeze Block closed shop were recently donated to a Goodwill in Oregon. I'm not absolutely sure who...

Re: Breeze Block Gallery 2013/14

Any artists get screwed over by Breeze Block? Shoot me a message...I have some info that could potentially be useful.

Amazing there wasn't more public outrage over non-returned works.

Re: The Ebay Advice Column

Thanks. I have someone who opened an eBay today sending offers for something listed for over $1k. Obviously someone playing games of some kind. You never know though...I've sold a few prints (MBW in particular) in the past for over $1000 to first time ebay buyers with weird auto-generated usernames...

Hmmm...I don't think you can actually block someone based on that (although you can block someone with a feedback score of -1 or lower). Go to "site preferences" and then "buyer requirements" to tweak what you do have control over.

Re: Help needed identifying artist

Awesome. Odd the other pieces seemed to have a different signature ... Or maybe there are multiple Demagny's .. thank you! True, but it's not all that uncommon for an artist's sig to evolve over time. Or maybe he signed prints differently than paintings? Who knows? Either way, I bet your $30 thrift...

Re: Help needed identifying artist

It's "R. Demagny." Check out the signature on this piece. Nice little thrift find.

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Appreciate all the tips. I am going with a pod type scenario for sure now. Barring theft, fire or a rollover, I think I should be good. Baker - did the same thing with foam wrap and bubble...and some more bubble. Also wrapped a cardboard shell around some things before more bubble went around that a...

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Yup, you got it, Guryter! The wife got a job near Denver and has already started, so I've gotta wrap up work here, sell half of what I own including a house and attempt to get the animals out west alive.

I'll either sell all my posters before I move again...or just plan to die in Colorado.

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

What about renting a trailer? This isn't a bad idea - my little car could technically pull it. Whether or not I'd need a new transmission after is another story. And then I guess I'd be limited in how fast I could safely drive. Yeah, seems like some of the pod services like U-Haul's U-Box have mixe...

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Yeah, there are few things more satisfying than packing something really well. So glad I finally grew up last year and bought a kraft paper dispenser and tape gun. Can't imagine what this would be like without those. I've used an obscene amount of tape so far. You drive a truck/hire a moving company...

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

@ bullelk Ha...thanks. Get out while you can! Yeah, I'm fairly confident at least one of the animals wouldn't make it if they were flown in (there's one old dog and one cat who doesn't care for travel). Could potentially bribe some family into driving my car with the pets while I drive a U-Haul thou...

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Insurance? Where's your sense of adventure? I may end up transporting some of the larger prints inside the flat file sandwich style, but pretty much everything else has already been packed up pretty much like Mr. Kevin Tong demonstrates in this video: az7lfOZmicg It was a weekend's worth of sorting ...

Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Anyone have any experience transporting a largish collection a very long way? We're talking over a thousand posters and something like 50 paintings/framed pieces - all very well-packed. I'm considering some sort of pod-type moving situation (U-haul U-box or PODS), but am concerned about temperature/...

Assuming you've already attempted to get in touch with them and it's been at least two days, you can open an unpaid item case in the resolution center.

You're always catching this stuff! Nice find. I'll have to look when I get home.
