Very cool concept, but not my favorite looking print overall.

Funny thing is I did the math and figured getting the sub would save me money. Keep the prints I want, hopefully sell the others for about $25 (about what I'll pay each). This way I willl get the ones i want for about $26 each, rather than $40. Works for me.

Really? Dan's editions are 550 and over now, and his ap's are over 60 which seems ridiculous in and of itself (obey doesn't even issue that many). Why get any sub from him when you can buy the few prints you see before you purchase them that are worthwhile of your money easily from his site and get the other 8-10 less than amazing prints under cost from ebay and these boards if you so wish for less overall? If you answered a tiny doodle of a random animal, you proved me wrong. If you're smart enough to realize people will be shopping their prints involving animals they don't enjoy that you can pick up fairly cheap and of an animal you possibly might enjoy, you're the real winners. I stopped being a sub holder after the 06/07 sub because he jacked the amount of prints up so much that I didn't need to be sitting by my computer every first few days of the month to score one. The monetary dynamics of a mccarthy print from release to a year later would be wonderful material for any finance or business major to use in a project. Especially a case study on supply and immediate demand, with long term demand (or lack thereof) based overall on image desirability (make sure you thank me in the introduction).

Yes I'm a giant "hater" but I still have common sense. Thanks to flippers, we baby a lot of artists that are no longer deserving. Forsman should be the one who's really mad, McCarthy killed the value of his prints by killing the secondary market on his own. I personally wish McCarthy took a year off of the sub and tried to sell out all his prints to those who had seen them before clicking the paypal button, it would be a much needed wakeup call. Sorry to drag your name into this Mark, I own almost every print you released and they're amazing in person.

I love talent but it seems to be misused most of the time.
i really like what Dan does, but unfortunately i have to agree 100% with the statements above

Me too. Well...maybe not 100%. I don't have most of Forsman's prints.

There's a definite link between forsman and McCarthy, one produces more prints than there sould be demand for and the other prouces far less, one sells out when he shouldn't and the other's take awhile to, one's established and draws high dollar amounts for some of his older prints while the other is still in school.

You can score a McCarthy on the secondary market for even lower than mark's prints sell for and they're crazy cheap to begin with. McCarthy basically has an open ended print edition that lasts for 1-3 days. It cracks me up when he posts on his site that he thinks they might be sold out. He prints them himself and doesn't list the edition size. As for the economic standpoint of a sub, how many prints a year do you actually really enjoy and would frame? I'm going with 4 as the top answer (the real amount is 2-3), and would only recommend buying from dan if the image is amazing and involes gid ink since people go insane for them even though they're asleep for the majority of the time it's dark out. I'm actually surprised that all of his prints don't invole gid inks since someone always seems to ask if they were used in every release. My true opinion is that LQL should just be re-released so the majority of us will stop paying attention.

I get it, the moon, trees, houses with one light on, powerlines, mountains, and dinosaurs are cool. It just get's old after 6 years worth of them.

And now to go from mildly rational to very unpopular(it's why you love to hate me), Dan's already run out of major ideas and most people are starting to let on that his sub is just a giant scam to own 10 prints that you never would otherwise, so I will predict that in only 3 years he'll be forced to make more concert posters than art prints. His months are numbered unless he finds a new style, maybe it will be animal sketches, who knows

People (myself included) don't seem to be getting bored yet. Also, there are many other artists who are quite popular on this site, that don't change their style very often, but continue to get lots of love.

true story.........you can make money off dan mccarthy if you don't sell them the day after you buy them.

I don't think that guy ecoli is very good at math.

I'm also not sure why ecoli is commenting in a dan mccarthy thread if he really doesn't like dan mccarthy. Jermaine or PM are available to bust on and are much more fun to harrass..........I'd recommend you try it out.

who really cares about forsman?

I talked to Jermaine a couple of years ago and he mentioned you , but then basically shut up and didnt wanna talk about it. I assume he hates you cause you are a blatant flipper and you dont like him cause his prints dont flip really well. Is that pretty close?
