not too sure hes doing licensed posters anymore
This would be a huge disappointment. I was really hoping to see him do at least a couple more monsters to flesh out his set. Loved his take on Frankenstein.
Yes, I could take or leave the Wolf Man, but that Frank was greatness.

Would love to work with him again. I think he's brilliant and a great guy. Just unfortunately not everyone in this business is the best to work with and takes a toll sometimes on wanting to release anything in this market.

You put a lot of work into certain things and the pay isn't that insanely great. Makes you second guess stuff.

I wrote to Anthony and asked if he has any plans for more Universal Monsters, and he was very clear that he's not doing posters and won't consider anything more in that series. Ah well. At least we got the perfect Frankenstein poster.

Did bottlebux get devalued recently? Seems pretty significant.
  • $5 off - 750 bottlebux (before: 500)
    $10 off - 1500 (before: 1000)
    free shipping - 3000 (before: 1500)
    $25 off - 3750 (before: 2000 for $20)
Note: my older numbers might be off cause I'm just going off memory.
After 8 years of bbux and a global pandemic that has raised prices across the board, we had to unfortunately raise it.
Understandable.

^ I noticed this too. Just assumed like everything else in life it’s just gotten a little more expensive. Still awesome tho. Free poster money is free poster money after all.

Maybe he's upset he didn't get kudos from Kevin Smith for it...

As an aside - hearing 8 years makes me feel old. Isn't it only just hitting its 5th year this summer? https://bottleneckgallery.com/blogs/new ... ogram-info
