Is this being printed by Pressure? I don't know much about them, except that they printed Seasons which is drymounting perfect.

They're one of the best printers out there. And also the most expensive, but for good reason.

And damn those dimensions.

When he first unveiled the original, I remember seeing someone ask on IG if this was going to become a print. James responded with a "maybe *winky face*". So I'm glad he followed through.

Very happy to hear that this one is becoming a print. Shame it's so soon after Thought Bubble - going to be an expensive few days - but have to pick this one up for sure.

Same here. I actually just got his new book from Giant Robot and the slip cover is a foldout of this image. I literally just started flattening it yesterday, but now it's going back on the book because this will be way better.

I ordered a 20"x40" frame with 8ply alfa-rag matt, acid free backing & standard acrylic for ~$135 from Frame Destination last week.
(probably add $30 for UV acrylic)
