Great value for any of his works if you are keen on the imagery.

Especially true after a release that you had to pay a considerable premium to get a small portion of the art stenciled/hand finished.
This seems to be 100% handmade.

I personally see a progression and improvement on a technique/skills standpoint.
the stencil work is much cleaner on this version but the biggest difference for me is the splash

Raw has its own merits too. That being said, you're right, the technique is completely different on the splash. Thick paint on the original, worked with a stick to give the ''splashes''.. Not one is alike. Here, the splash appears to be sprayed/stenciled.

I'm starting to like the red edition. The blue dress looks great.

I thought the lack of contrast on the edge of the "splash" on the red and the orange make the legs look cut off rather than located behind the splash.

I agree, just wish the splash was a different color, I keep going back and forth between the white and the red.

Not really feeling this edition. Ive got the original on wood which i like. There is something more simple and organic with the first version. I'm glad he didnt release a second edition of the original, I do respect him for that.

I was not around when the first one was released and think he did a good job differentiating this, but it still looks really nice. I know many would disagree, but I actually like this image better, especially the blue. :D

I really like that he continued the splash theme with a progression of the little girl getting older now reminds me of my daughter now so I had to grab one. I hope he revisits this again in 5 more years bringing the girl close or into her teens, we will see
