was a bit surprised at how fast these sold out. For a new artists first print. Understand the edition size was small and the price was not high. I got to it a few minues late thinking all would be well and low and behold, sold out.

So, nice job, keep it up, perhaps ill have better luck next time. I realy did want to put it in my bathroom. The proce was right that I was willing to take the risk and it would have looked awsome.

Sold in about a minute.

Tried for hand finished edition, no luck. Went back and grabbed a regular and they were showing sold out after checkout, it was that fast.

Keep an eye on the site at 9pm EST...

spoke with Greg this afternoon and it looks like the brainwashed verison oversold by a bunch.

i got the impression that it was oversold by about 10-15. only 3 were available according to the on sale page.

Crazy, I was refreshing right along and as soon as it showed up it said only 3 of the brainwashed were available...couldn't cart one so I got a regular. Looking forward to seeing this!

I don't want to hear that :( . Hope I don't get refunded on the brainwash edition - 12:00:22

I thought the variant was an edition of 8 so why would there only be 3 available? Or was it set to 3 so if it oversold there would be 5 left for cushion?

not sure - maybe 5 were off the table for friends/family/his own portfolio? i'm guessing here, i don't know.

i do know that he said he has a bunch of people to email about this being oversold.

i've got my fingers crossed for you guys, hopefully you're not refunded. if so, hopefully he's got a regular for you as a consolation.

good luck, i'll hope for the best!

BTW this is one hell of a first print. i look forward to seeing how he follows this up - by all accounts, this one is a homerun!

What if you created a print that was an obvious ripoff of something called Not Everything Is So Black & White?

change of heart? you seem awfully excited about this now

Haha - Never said I didn't like it! The color streams immediately screamed the Eelus print so much to me at first. -1 for knee jerk assessment and +1 on brainwash for now, dreading a refund.

HI Everyone,

First, and foremost I want to thank everyone for their support and even thank those with more critical critiques. I'm frankly blown away by being on this side of a drop. Again, I really am stoked and I thank many of you for the support.

Second I want to set the record straight regarding the editions and number of prints available etc. - because as a fellow collector I would want to be confident that there were no shenanigans with edition numbers etc.

There were 8 Brainwashed editioned prints and 25 S/N editioned prints that were available. I have a very limited number of APs of each edition and they are reserved/created for oversold situations and replacements that may be necessary for prints damaged during shipping. The Brainwashed Edition technically oversold by 3 despite my website drop software and PayPal inventory management.

However, no one will be refunded because as someone guessed, I did have a cushion and had pulled three out of inventory prior to the drop. They were earmarked for a personal email list giveaway and a giveaway facilitated by a website that has been a supporter of this print. The third was to be part of a gallery show in January. I still may be able to do those things with the APs, just not until we're sure everyone who was able to order gets their print delivered safely.

Three of the 25 prints were abandoned in their PayPal carts making for an even sadder panda after the 3:00PM drop. At 10:05 those final three pandas were released and subsequently purchased.

I hope this clears up any confusion or concerns.

*edit

Whoah. eBay 200689216265 and eBay 130617954004

Awww shucks, *blush* I'm flattered!
