Oh believe me I do too. The Good, The Bad, and the Moon may have been my favorite image from the CANS festival. That said, I was not lucky enough to get either of them for retail whereas Visitor has been more readily available.
Deer-e-me is still available for pretty cheap:

I thought that the 'Visitor' in question was related to the women in the print having her period. I often find my wife, squatting down in the back yard, baying at the full moon when she's having hers. The print is a unnervingly similar representation of such occurrences.
Definitely about periods. The two-faced (hormonal mood swings) woman, the dark "rain." Pretty obvious, right?

(Ladies, sorry for the stereotyping. I say the above tongue-in-cheek.)

Exactly. All this stuff about aliens is just complete nonsense. :P

I was about to make a similar comment, but refrained due to the girl's obvious young age in the piece... But that sure didn't stop you, nice job pervert ;)

I'm sorry, but this has to be one of the stupidest drymounting things I've ever read on here....actually disgusting to some extent.

Sorry I just read this. How is this 'disgusting'?

Love eelus work and it was interesting reading this thread when i couldnt sleep :pint: When i first saw this before reading this thread i thought of a woman going thru her cycle, even the wording on eelus,s website about the print supports this, also in the UK alot of woman call getting there period, "getting a visitor" On the grafter front its a year on since AKBAPE suggested he will bet top dollar he could get a splash,(any of the versions) a year on for less than cost :shock: Well your skint mate and its harder and harder to find them for reasonable money, the last splash sale recorded on here, white and red canvas, sold for $2000 a couple of months back.... Alot of Eelus,s work is harder and harder to find for fair money and certain pieces will just continue to rise, I look forward to seeing what Eelus comes up with for 2010. :D
Hope i can get to sleep now :lol: :pint:

Could someone who owns one of these post some pics? That stock jpeg doesn't do much to illustrate what the print actually looks like in person.
