...and the regular really is sweet. :shock:

I really can't even imagine a sunset or twilight or whatever variant...its really tough to wrap my mind around owning something that fargin sweet.

Its one thing to actually get thru and "win" a regular...and then the idea of a variant is unfathomable really. I'd expect to see Ed McMahon (R.I.P.) with a giant check standing beside my bed before I'd imagine a foily variant framed and hanging over it.

Just say'n.

I SURE DO LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING PICTURES THOUGH WHEN YOU LUCKY BASTAGES LAND THEM!! :)

if you get a tube with a variant, do you still get the regular edition as well?

I don't know if Emek does that like Spusta for instance, but I have yet to get a variant from emek, but would love to start here :D

POTY matchup:
In this corner, a cool piece of iconic clip art that is beautifully printed with metallic inks, Sperry's Bob Dylan.
In this corner, an original and poetic hand-drawn piece of art that is beautifully printed, Emek's Van Morrison.
Winner: Emek Van Morrison.

Love it. Wish the clouds had some better perspective though..... there's either too many...or the ones are not big enough along the top. Emek rules, another classic image. I bet the details are amazing.
If you use ULINE tubes, please don't pm me about trades or sales.

Both deserving, but I think Dave Hunter's Santana belongs in that conversation as well. Anyway, a topic for another thread.

I agree that these 2 prints so far are the top 2 POTY candidates.
This will be like the undefeated Money Mayweather (EMEK) vs. Manny Pacquiao(Chuck Sperry)

Ha, and I said ealier today that I think Spusta's High Sierra is probably my leading candidate, its colors and hand drawn detail are fantastic. Probably won't win, but, I think it's my choice thus far.

And yes, I've seen all of these prints in person.

We don't need a one on one matchup ... more like a cage match.

And High Sierra sails in off the top rope delivering the knock-out flying headbutt !

Dylan easily. This one's nice, though

I like this....but it does not blow me away. I would not consider this close to POTY(see rhys cooper TCV).....but the emek hype machine seems to be getting back to full swing. Still a good poster as usual for emek.
