Which pic, the top or bottom? EB seems like a crowd that would have toenails like the photo on the bottom.
You have your toenails French tipped too? Thought I was the only one

additional note: jj has good pricing with his prints which are on par with others no matter limited or timed; not saying that he is not making bank, just saying that collectors imo seek not only good+ work, but rare pieces as well; many will say good for the artists who keep ogs and more specifically prints (for this board and many artists associated with it) low in price and high in quantity for fan appeasement or for sales; and yes this may speak to a business model, but beyond that I guess I am just saying that jj and other artists, can do more by doing less. Same as last post, subjective based upon the artist's goals. You can go back to the masters of art and some were trying to reach for excellence, and others, in the same sense perhaps, were just trying to get by. Interesting to think about today's modern technology / marketing / sources to sell. I'm sure all artists consider all of these factors. But even more interesting to think about beyond all of the money, which artists are reaching for excellence, which are looking for money, and which are looking for both.

tl;dr
tl:dr you can never go bad with JJ. Beautiful print that maintains its value or goes up.

It is done, based on Spac04's buy directive, who I'm holding accountable if the print isn't a knockout or also if it's a failip. :wink:

I like the Nagel vibe to it, plus the hologram will look killer in person.

Size, price and content, this was a no-brainer.
