I hope not.

I assume Editor was that high due to the level of detail, number of individual embossments, slightly larger size and gold lining, but I could be wrong.

Same with Lory. Lory has a high level of detail, costly techniques and on wood.

I hope he can come back to the $200-$250 range. Especially if money is going to be tight for a while.

I really like how the Lory print turned out, too bad I bought the sweater from NTWRK last year, can't justify owning a sweater and a print of the same image, especially at that price

As a TrueFan, I have matching sweaters to most of my favorite prints.

As much as I love these foil. holographic, hot-stamped, embossed editions, I do wish he would go back to making faithful reproductions of his art. If he wants to do fancy editions and sell thru hypebeast apps just do it with art specifically made for that.

Just image what Adrift would look like if it was released as a print now.

For the art I'm fine with the price point. With the timing, oof. Hey the world is having a crisis event, let me release and even more expensive piece of art to my fans, drymount a recession.

What is the over/under for edition size?
More or less than both Editor versions (500/781) combined?

< 200

Which will be a nice small edition size for this piece.

I'm on the fence about this. Almost everything he does is a buy for me. At the price, and the current world pandemic, probably going to pass.
My guess for edition size <750.
