The only UM Durieux print i didn't manage to grab was the Creature print, the rest are due to arrive shortly. I also have the Iron Giant, King Kong and Bigfoot National Park. Really interested to grab some earlier work.

Also nice to hear that he is a great guy, does anyone know of any AP's being sold by Laurent?

Thanks for the comments everyone :clap:

If the Iron Giant is anything to go by, APs are more than secondary market price.

I think a lot of AP's are getting that way. Over valued? Not sure but i haven't come across a Durieux AP yet so i wouldn't know his angle on them. Does he remarque them?

the Iron Giants were either 300 or 400 & were signed embossed & doodled

I was checking it out before the last post, thanks.

So its safe to say its best to get a Durieux on the original drop!

Would be interested to know if anyone has bought an AP, anyone?

I like the way his sketches actually still have an element of his illustration style...

Not me but if I remember correctly those IGs have actually been reduced from what they were originally going to be... I think it was €320 when they were first announced. Doesn't think they've been put up yet.
If they're sketched/remarqued then (a big) maybe, but too rich for me.

Yeah original is best. How does everyone here feel about the Charlie drops. I wish the happy one was screen printed and sad one glicee. But that would mean more colors=more money

I really hope that releasing a variant as a giclee isn't the beginning of a trend...

Love Laurent's work. So good to see him hit it out of the park with the UM posters.
