The colors on this one are nice, but sadly, this one probabaly wont make my collection. Sure its gorgeous, but its slightly more of the same (earlier converge one).Same thing with the fantomas one, just doesnt float my boat.

I will pick up that new hopecon print though, its evil looking.

That's a hell of a doodle you got here Mitch, the one piece I have that's been embellished isn't quite that elaborate, but it's mine.
Thats insane. I dont know any illustrator that draws that small and then blows the art up to poster size. You should lose the detail, but somehow his stuff looks crisp and clean. crazy. I gotta see an original now.

take a look at the pictures on here for the sunn/boris altar tour poster. you'll find some of the original drawings. Pretty cool to see how he setsup all the lettering.

anyone know if the size listed on this is accurate (specifically the 36" height), or happen to know sizes on his other 2 new ones? I'm planning a big framing order for oversized stuff that i'll go pick up direct at americanframe so I don't have to pay the extra fees so I'd like to include these if they're going to be typically huge.

I would recommend not ordering a frame until you can actually measure the print yourself, but that's just me maybe.

thirded.

it suprises me that so many posters are bastard sizes.

wtf is everyone thinking. it makes very little sense to me.

more expensive to frame = less likely to ever be appreciated.

anyone have the answer ?

I don't think the artist's primary concern is "how easy is this be framed?".
