Very vast. A true work of art that I don't need a bot to score. :clap:

More artists should do releases this way. Keep the money in their pockets instead of feeding #flipperfamilies

^ that's a Leafy Sea Dragon. a very close relative of the Weedy Sea Dragon, which is what I believe this image is based on. They are both only found off the coast of Southern Australia and are relatives of seahorses. like other seahorse species, the males bear the young. you can see the eggs on the tale of this one. Each animal has evolved perfect camouflage for their respective habitats and i think they are some of the most beautiful creatures in the oceans. This was an easy buy for me. Love it!

Can't wait to see this. From the pics, this looks like the closest best reproduction there ever will be of Aaron's pencils. Will need to wait and see, but it seems way better than the letterpress pieces (I know they're from the inks, but they still loose so much detail...).

No idea where that's from, though.

There was an interesting discussion of this in a recent episode of Adventures in Design with Mitch. Talked about working with Pressure Printing and all the complexity that goes into producing a print with stamping, embossing and giclee. Can't wait to get my copy.

According to Mitch's email this morning, looks like these'll be ready to ship by the end of the month. :clap: Can't wait!
