I think its really cool of BNG to be offering something different. When I received the initial email advertising the sale, I was really intrigued by the back story of the tenners and how BNG came to have a bunch to sell. To be honest its out of my price range right now but I would love to own one and good luck to all that scores. Well done all round :clap:

Thanks to BNG for making an "affordable" Banksy available to the masses. +1 Cheers to those that picked one up yesterday and best of luck to those picking one up Friday.

The AJ is phenomenal. Somehow completely missed it, kind of oblivious to the NYCC releases as I thought it was all Batman and Star Wars. BNG is drymounting insane, Joe is a madman, Arseny a pirate king.

It's the funniest thing when they sneak 'em in there and the BNG line gets only a fraction of the usual fanbase for it while people scramble for PBs. Same with Sperry regs at Spoke every year.

But what is it though? I see a man trying to show his Jupiter model to pigeons on the street, but they're more concerned with eating the orange broccoli before the lava consuming cars in the background gets too close :) . And what is "photopolymer letterpress"?

Also, serious question, can someone explain Feldman to me? The only thing I know about the artist is that he keeps showing in the Bottleneck releases, but it all looks like a standard grade-schooler to me. :?

glad you like the super a! a lot of new buyers for that one so hopefully they like them too. He has such a huge fan base abroad. Like everywhere

Collaborated with him on a beautiful deck set coming to Rampant later in the month.

Feldman was an understudy of Ralph Steadman. They share a very specific style that seems to be love or hate, nothing in the middle. I first saw him pop up in the Nutbags group on Facebook, did an exclusive run of Phish prints for them. Those took off on the secondary and he seemed to blow up from there.

Obviously he's been around much longer than that, simply stating how I saw him blow up in the scene.

I like a lot of his stuff but don't own any, definitely not the style I would frame and hang. But people go crazy for just about every release.
