That is a terrible idea if you want to preserve your print at all. Also, $50 for two strips of wood is outrageous.

Moss Jungle Book vs Holt Jungle Book is a tough call. Normally, I drift towards the illustrators (like Holt) and not as much towards the 'cool concept graphic design guys' (like Olly).

This is a rare instance of me preferring Olly's graphic design approach to Brandon's illustrator style. Brandon's piece is technically stunning. The linework is amazing and it looks sharp in person. My problem is that it lacks heart. I don't see any passion when I look at it and I don't see Disney's The Jungle Book. Olly's piece embodies the Disney film and while his witty approach doesn't always work for me, I think it's spot on here.

I love that both pieces were in the show. There's so many ways one can tackle a property and it's cool to see both approaches.

very nicely put, i agree as well. I got my Moss Jungle book in this past week and its stunning, the color and detail are perfect. From the lettering to the design it has an old school disney feel to it which makes it really nice.

I absolutely love this poster. Picked it up secondhand, had it for one day, then took it to the framer. I really love it.

Picked up a few pieces from framing devil earlier this week and took in both Holt's Jungle Book and this one, we both decided he could come up with a more interesting frame for this one, now the waiting game begins

All of my framed pieces have a black frame, so my wife insisted on sticking with it. I fought for wood, but was denied. :lol:

But I love the triple mat that the three of us picked out. I'm very excited to see it.

My wife suggested a wood frame. Hopefully about time this week I'll take of the frame.
