It states 100% of the profits are going to Haiti relief.

Assume he will recoup what ever costs it takes to produce these (material, printing, shipping) and give the rest to Haiti relief.

He won't make a dime ... (did you hear that MBW?)

I meant for us as buyers.... cost over FMV? or Retail Price?

but you aren't donating any money. YOU are buying a print and the ARTIST who SOLD the print is DONATING the proceeds.
out and perfect.

Yea, I don't think buyers will be able to use this as a Tax-Write off since they aren't donating anything...

Good looking piece; is the Print-Run of 400 confirmed at this point, or speculation?

Deduction = $$ you give - value of anything received.

Goddamnit, I've been shut out on a lot of recent EMEK sales... NOBODY should be shut out when trying to buy a print for a cause like this..
I really hope EMEK makes this a time limited sale, unlimited run, or charges $300+ for these, which I would be HAPPY to pay.
Ugh
Hopefully EMEK puts a high price tag on this to limit the flips factor

At this point to have to question how many collectors EMEK has lost due to flippers

Love his art but when super bowl tickets are easier to get something is just wrong

If Emek indeed is intending to make $$$ for people in Haiti then it should be an unlimited run. I would if I could. Someday soon I intend to produce my own prints for the masses.

That's the ticket. But, also why it should be an edition of 20000

EMEK knows better...... which kind of upsets me

Should be maximizing revenue for Haiti versus creating another print hype

Praying this will be $250 and bash the low end flippers hopes.......
