My friend told me the guy in front of him bought 20 - cash. Thats $1700.00. Ebay user "meanmrfandango" has 6 on eBay right now. I hope people who really love the art are able to get one, and since the market is currently flooded it looks like many will be able to. But what does that do to our poster's value? I personally base value on how much I like the artwork... but for some reason this is just pissing me off. There WAS a 1 Poster per Person limit at Rothbury but the people running merch didn't pay any attention to it.

So should I care? Should I be this damn frustrated over these flipping bastards who are raping the artist by making more than double what they made on the prints? Seeing this guy list all these on ebay has just pissed me off for some reason. Is there anyway to prevent this bullshit? And why am I so pissed? :twisted:

Chicago Midway was loaded with Rothbury goers on Monday, all clutching their poster tubes and waiting for their flights.

well I certainly wont claim to know anything about posterart or its valuation. I only like the art from shows i've personally attended...and even then it has to have some unique qualities else i still wont find it worth a hoot.

b'roo EVERY year is a prime example, its cr@p year after year. IMHO, Timothy Ripley's parkinglot art at bonaroo kicks the rest of its @$$. The MMJ print was the only one even mentioning - too bad I'm not a fan.

anyways, anyway u slice it there are still only 600 of these things (untill 20 different variants turn up) so i dont suppose it effects this print's value even if Fandingleberry holds all of them. simple economics should tell MeanFan that the fewer of these are in circulation, the more the demand and hence the higher their valuation.

why are you even complaining about double or triple the price from the show - FanMan paid what? 30 each for the 10klf prints last summer that really were, in my opinion pretty f'n sweet, and sold every one of them for 200+. thats eh, between 700% and 1000% profit dependant upon sale price. Sheeps man, the coolest thing about Rothbury was the shows, the venue, the all-corn made "plastic" cups/utinsels/plates and food containers that were all corn. The awesome weather. The meetings of the minds to discuss where the world and we as human beings were headed was pretty f'm interesting.

The Emek was just O.K. for me and the $85 tag at the show was inordinately steep...hopefully some $ went to some decent cause. The Revolutionary war era "canon"/magical musical machine used on this print to represent a revolutionary music festival was a good one I have to admit!

Woods Lenticular was entirely more fly and proceeds went to a good cause...yet noone even gives a sh!t 'cause it doesnt have the heir to the electric coolaid acid tests name scratched in the corner. ALL IS IMHO!

Cool, so, I have the display print - it's not numbered but it's signed and listed as display by Emek - Not part of the 600 run right? I.e. Ultra Rare Shizz? It's mint.

I think people appreciate his talent but are turned off by the fact that he doesn't produce silkscreens.
