Re: Metropolis 13 Taylor

Thanks to soam24, I am now the very lucky owner of the regular version of this gorgeous poster. So beautiful, and with such mind-boggling detail. Really, a modern classic! :notworthy:

complaining Hope you're not talking about me. I've now read through some of this thread, and a good number of the people who have been posting could be considered "complainers" or worse. I was simply adding my name to the long list of the disappointed. Here's hoping Laurent has a few APs that he'll...

Re: Metropolis 13 Durieux Release Discussion 03/29/13

I was one of the unlucky, unhappy ones who stared at "Coming Soon" for entirely too long today. Never laid eyes on a for sale button. Tried everything, from refreshing the page 17 gazillion times, to trying different browsers, to restarting my computer. Would be lying if I said I wasn't upset at 12:...

Re: Metropolis 13 Durieux

I know what you mean. But Durieux's rendering skills are beyond reproach. Just look at how the robot's face looks in the variant - spot on - and you know what I mean. I chalk up the look of the "robot" in the regular edition to Laurent's decision to hybridize her face - a very purposeful combination...

Re: Metropolis 13 Durieux

I admire the artistry, but this just isn't for me. I can't quite put my finger on why, though. Interesting. I saw your comment and looked again. One could say that the robot's head is too centered, top to bottom. So centered, though, that the positioning can only be purposeful, perhaps symbolic of ...

Re: Metropolis 13 Durieux

Whoa! Spectacular work from Durieux. And such an interestingly different take on the film when compared to Ken Taylor's beautiful poster. :notworthy:

Re: Sweet Jane 13 Oliveira Release Discussion 02/15/13

I think Hero is going to put all remaining work for sale online after the show opening tonight. Does that mean late tonight, their time? Tomorrow morning? Not sure.
But check their site/Twitter feed/subscribe to their mailing list for more info!

Re: Sweet Jane 13 Oliveira Release Discussion 02/15/13

+1 and very happy. Just love Tim's work and in my opinion this print is up there with his best. :clap:

Picked up one of the regular edition of 35, which I prefer for its clean color blocks. Still, the variant is gorgeous in its own way.

Re: Sweet Jane 13 Oliveira Release Discussion 02/15/13

Indeed, it could be difficult to grab one... Do you know the release time? :clap: Nope. I'm on Hero's mailing list and their Twitter feed, so I figure we'll find out soon enough. I'm just hoping that Tim and Jane fly just enough under people's radar at the show opening that a few are left over for ...

Re: Sweet Jane 13 Oliveira Release Discussion 02/15/13

Early Sweet Jane via Piet Mondrian. Nice work, Tim! But only 35 prints in the edition means that an online pickup of this will be virtually impossible. Oh well. I'll still be trying!

Re: Print Storage

2 words: foamcore sandwich. This. The safe storage of prints is a multi-step process. There are many ways to accomplish these steps, but in general they are: 1. Flattening 2. Storing 3. Framing and enjoying whenever possible As to #1, I've always used the "foamcore sandwich" method. The results are...
