Hype or no hype, its certainly top 3 of show and my personal fav, its Moss and there is only 250 of them. I don't know if the markets reaction in hype. Thats like calling the market reaction to The Birds hype. Hype implies the price is coming down soon.

Can someone post actual pics of the print. Or do we need to wait until after the heavy auction period ends?

I like how he's not depending on the dissolve filter for this piece. It feels like he went back toward smooth line work for it. It is very well done.

A ton of his growth in technique alongside his signature style. Tie that to a great idea for a great movie... and this is a big big winner

GTFO. What did you say?
We'll see how superior it is when it's in your FS list.

One of Olly's best. Up there with the Star Wars set, Evil Dead, the Totoro Variant, and Lawrence of Arabia. Has an iconic look to it.

I suppose it just depends on subject matter and tastes. I think that Spirited Away is one of his best.

The JB didn't do much for me.

As far as his Ghibli variants go, for me it's Totoro > Howl's > Mononoke > Spirited Away.

Man I love this print, but +$400 is a very quick price jump that I am not willing to pay. Now if I find 400 bucks at some point in the near future, then yes.

I've gotta agree, I love this print...but even if I "find 400 bucks in the near future," I still wouldn't spend it on this. Just my opinion.

i think we all agree it's a great design and that current prices won't hold. how do you guys feel about the white spaces?
