Love the line. Just one more insane piece of the puzzle.

I figure most of you know that what we see on a computer screen is a poor version of what we get when we unroll the print. The water lines make sense, look at what is going on around where the water (blue) is higher, like where the polar bear is squeezing under the house. With two very respected artist making this affordable print, I am sure it will be insanely better in person.
Thanks. Thanks a lot. I've been trying to share this message ever since I started talking about this stuff...people bag on prints that they've never seen, all the time, and it's maybe the stupidest thing that happens here.

As if, by now, we can't trust Jay, Aaron, Bird Machine, etc. to make a quality print.

with all due respect, if you look at that illo and the line bothers you, i feel sorry for you. that's a drymounting beautiful piece of art.

btw, certainly looks like a fishing line to me...the creature is trying to catch(or save?) the little fellas...you can clearly see a couple of them going for the line/hook.

Okay, I wasn't so sure at first... But I am pretty convinced that along w/ the pterodactyls there is definitely the silhouette of a greyhound in the upper left...

Love this piece. The only thing that is strange to me is the tail of the creature. Does it go from behind the house and under the ramp? It seems unproportionately long as well ( yes I realized it is a fictional beast). The more I look at,it seems like it is not attached to the beast at all.

I thought I saw that too, good eye, and a nice memorial to Seth.

I'm excited to see what this looks like in person. Unfortunately I don't think sub tubes arrive until February or so.

The run was not announced yet. With it being set at 280 (+60 for the subs), I'm not surprised it was an easy grab and not an instant sellout. The limit of 2 per person might also be an indicator that Jay and Aaron were probably expecting something like this too.. I mean, most artists will limit to 1 print per person if they expect it to fly off the shelves.. which is fair that way, but not necessary here.

Human vision is uncommonly good at noticing lines...it's just something our species has become trained to pick out over the millennia. In fact it's been shown that we can see a very thin line (if long enough) against the sky from miles away. So, I am not surprised at all that people might find the drool/fishing line either interesting, distracting, or both.
just a foil for me today, thanks
