Nope some were for sale on his site this afternoon, but the last one sold out a little while ago.

You still see the add to cart button but if you attempt to check out it will tell you the item is sold out.

I dream of a day when there are McCarthy releases where someone doesn't come in and say "It's not sold out yet"

Very nice. As mentioned before, the depth of field and clarity do make it resemble a photo.
I love my DMc sub!!!

Dan is pretty much printing money right now.

Good for him, he deserves it.


Anyone know if the originals sold at G1988? Wonder what the consignment agreement was like on those.

The sub is genius on his part. Even if the current one was limited to 555 (and assuming every one is for the US) that's an interest-free loan for almost $200k.

Not having to worry about cash flow is a huge advantage. Now if he hired someone to handle shipping/logistics he could really minimize his risk of burn-out and allow himself to focus on just his art.

Math is not my strong suit, but I come up with $115,500 (330 subs x $350).

I thought it was 333, but either way your math is right. But regardless, it's a lot of money to work with.

But back to Elder Days: I think the contrast between Pale Afternoon and Elder Days is just astounding. Pale Afternoon, imo, is too bland and boring to me to warrant buying, but a month later Dan churns out this amazing print that's anything but bland, flat, and boring. Kinda makes me wonder what inspired him for this change. If Elder Days is a sign of what's to come, it's gonna be a great year for Dan.

I already have 'New Sweater' and '1 of 70,000,000...' framed next to each other but this print might just convince me to try the same concept again. Especially since both of these have a little more depth to them. I'm really excited to see this in person, it looks like Dan really outdid himself with the different perspective and I love the classic nature element.

Change the dreams and make that a reality - focus on all the positive stuff you'all add each day around here.

Dons world awaits you :wink:
