Nice piece. I'm a little behind on how this went down. Was this part of the series that Josh released online?
How were people given the opportunity to purchase these?
What was the price range?
Yes, sold at his online show. Josh sent out a preview list to (some) people who had expressed interest.

Oops sorry for the misinformation on that piece. Thought it was for the Neil M. Perry and Keyes show coming in May, because I thought I had seen on the original preview that went out for the Brink show (where the Keyes showed no image yet) that the Keyes was only a 12 x 12, but I guess I was not remembering correctly on that. So congrats to whoever did get it!

Agree totally with the comments about the new work, but that Messengers one I do like quite a bit surprisingly.

Anybody know how long JK plans to stay on this current course? Probably won't know until we know I guess.
