its literally represented as EB7 in the lower right hand portion of the print, below the image you silly!

Here are a few more images of an A/P and a couple of make ready prints, one only black ink, the other a 2 color black and blue (no red) on a really cool stock that already had some guitars printed on it, highly styled possibly flaming guitars, gives an appearance of a watermark.

Regular #'d print on left, 1 color make ready on right:

2-color print on "guitar" paper on left, A/P on right:

A/P 6/6

ya know I don't really know for sure, probably not too many, they were the make ready prints, so I assume very few, just to dial in the screen process to come up with a high quality final product, not sure if Thomas kept any or sent all make ready prints to me? (I had gotten Jim Philips on board for the EB print, so Thomas was kind to toss these my way).

The black ink only print shows lots of ink smudging, the 2 color is really taking shape, but what makes it cool is that Jim had used some previously inked up stock, not sure what that underprint was, but it has these highly stylized and almost flaming looking guitars printed on the stock, so the overlay is kind of cool.

Again, I doubt there are many, and a lot of times these make ready prints are trashed anyways right? I mean one has smudges, the other is on stock already printed upon..etc..

I love em all though, each one is unique and has something to offer in and of itself. More of a curiosity than anything else I believe.

By the way, I'm contemplating getting rid of the A/P print, I know one person who is interested in it, but communication has been slow, not sure what kind of interest there would be for it however, so it may end up on ebay soon to let the market dictate what its "worth" to someone.

worked hard? not sure of the point, I bet he certainly had some time and serious effort invested into getting his image into a poster format and screened.

The key was it is to some an iconic image, he's a classic artist, the image is well known in some circles and what was important was the image had never been done in that type of format before. It also coincided nicely with the release of his book, so it could be used for promo purposes for that as well.

Many many artists that we love rehash images all the time, especially if its their signature image that folks associate with them.

and the bottom line is he helped out EB by being a part of the series, he was happy to do so, was very kind and gracious about it, and frankly I love that poster, it does leap out at you and is very nice quality.

I dig it!

I agree, the image is what I remembered the most, and completely forgot about the 'speedwheels' text that was on the original sticker that everyone had on their boards back in the day. On an interesting side note, there were over 8 million of those stickers sold...

Oh what I would do to get the OG sketch...

No trick to it. Just keep your eyes open for announcements. I think a couple are still available in the store.
