At 34x14, it's quite larger than his previous works; the price seems justifiable. Nice work too. I wouldn't worry about buying it, I'm sure if you don't like it, it won't be hard to flip.

Wish I could get one, too many poster buying commitments this week.

Sell ONE of your Obama prints and you can buy 6 of these prints and still have an extra $20 profit.

I love this print because it Doesn't remind me of anyone else's work, (i.e. there are no telephone poles, power lines, houses with one window lit up, etc). The concept of this print is very original and i think that it is a homerun.
Nah. It still reminds me of McCarthy, which is why I gave it a shot.

Define gaudy.

1. cheaply showy in a tasteless way; flashy.
2. ostentatiously ornamented; garish.
3. Klausen's recent prints.

But let's stay on topic.

The 1 thing about McCarthy and Brabant threads are, there is usually a lot of love and very little bickering. Can't we all play in the sandbox nicely, doesn't mean we can't throw sand, just keep it in the box so mom doesnt have to clean up.

A classier way of asking this would have been " Any ideas on why the value of this print doesn't compare with other new artists prints?"

Grateful's Learned (or maybe taught my wise EB's), tip of the day.

:lol: :lol:

I inda felt the same way about the price increase, but it really had more to do with this happening across the board than with Mark. Mark is one of the coolest, most personable artist i have corresponded. great loooking print. i just spent way too much $$ on prints thie past 2-3 weeks. but i might trade for this down the line.

See here's my issue with Brabant: If he hand-drew and hand-pulled these prints like McCarthy, I'd be more forgiving of the price increases. But McCarthy's a one man show. A great talent and person who offers up his originals for sale occasionally. Ever wondered why we don't see MB originals?

But this has all been kicked around on these boards before.
