I haven't been checking this thread near often enough. Great stuff from everyone. No such thing as a bad frame up, every print up on the wall is one less in a dark file.
Fantastic to see those OGSs done up to the 9s!

Thanks! I'm really happy with how it turned out. Its hard to see in the photos, but there is a hint of metallic paint in the white dry brush so at certain angles you can see it have just a bit of a sheen.

Everytime a Nesting gets framed, a demon gets her wings.

Bravo sir! Looks fantastic!

Love that Spring, always a fan of white on white myself, so that looks great!

Generally speaking... I have *never* been a fan of white on white.
That however... Looks fantastic! Well done mate!!

I think it is the bright color scheme that they worked with that pulls it off masterfully.
And look at ANY (and every) print Aaron has ever done (sans Nesting) and I think Jay gets
*most* the credit there. I've got this one hanging in my Son's bedroom. Right next to Pelican.
Kids are effin' AWESOME.

Thanks guys. The mount was just a colour match to the paper as I wanted to expand the border a bit...let it breath a little.

This is one of my favorite threads on EB. It's a good-will ecosystem of compliments and complements, which is hard to find nowadays. Aaron's work is amazing by itself, but its elevated to another level with these frame-ups and his fans. I just sent my first Horkey piece to the framers and can't wait to post in this thread when its done. I am no where close to joining the THC, but I hope in the future I'll be able to participate.

That's awesome dude! I'm making my way there alongside you. Which piece is getting the special treatment? :)
So it goes...
