I own 35 or so Horkey's (not many so I can't speak too loudly here), but this one looks the best in person to me. By that I mean in terms of clarity and definition. It is so crisp and just really impresses. I can't think of a single print that has blown me away more upon unrolling it from the tube than Naif.
The paper is also great.

Got a couple of trades I can make for one, but not sure as to what I am missing that everyone else sees. Obviously most of Horkey's work looks better in hand than anywhere else.
generally the art prints appeal to more people due to the simple fact that most people do not like the music Aaron does posters for. Theres also typically low runs on the art prints versus gig prints.

as for why I like this one, it's quite the opposite for me. I like at least 2/3 of the bands aaron does posters for, converge is no exception, and typically I think the lettering can be the best part of a horkey print. However like Wotta said, this one is detailed and crisp. I love all the white variants Aaron has done for other prints. The converge lettering on the gig poster version of this did nothing for me, so I went for the high constrast print, which happens to be this white art print version. The gig print appears a lot more muted and subtle.

And I so regret selling my AP for $450. And not because of where this sells at today - it's simply a stunning print in person.

Thanks dude. I've been at it for a few weeks now in one form or another, just gradually ramping up. Not really expecting much until the start of the new year. But yeah, after this morning's bumps it came together pretty quickly. I'm extremely grateful. :notworthy:
