With an outstanding new body of work opening at Roq La Rue today, I say it's high time we give Josh an "official" thread to distill news, rumors, releases and praise into.

Who's with me?

Surprised one hadn't been started yet and long overdue so thanks for this. I'd personally like to see Lifted 2 as a large format print and Drifting as a tiny showcase print in the future. :drool:

Hmmm i'm a little disappointed that JK has indicated Lifted II could be the next print - not a really a fan of it. In fact his new body of work isnt doing a great deal for me at the moment (except exodus which i love) - maybe it will grow on me.

Would much rather a release from the Tangled series but i think that appears to have been skipped over. Namely one of these 2:

Looks like a great show, maybe someday I'll see some OG stuff. Definitely a clear theme here, the pieces conjure feelings of frustration when comes to zoo's and circus's. I'm an animal lover and have never enjoyed going to the zoo it's actually very sad to see such complex creatures treated like material things.

This!!!

I hate seeing them caged up and gawked at. It breaks my heart to see lions and tigers (and others) just pacing around the walls of its enclosure...just doing laps over and over and not allowed to be free.

Thanks :)

I hope all the various threads consolidate here (a little), so it's easier to follow new things and get the latest info faster (for people like me, who mainly navigate through "your posts" and not "new posts" ;) ).
