Damn really like this print, would've jumped on it at the normal timed edition price, doubling it is a bit to rich for my blood.

Dang, I actually like the colors on this one more than the first one but at another $500 I think I'll make myself happy with the first print
I was in the same boat but I found out about the night Edition a month ago from JJ’s Instagram account. I rolled the dice and sold my Day Edition at cost in the hopes that he would release it. Glad I did cause I love the colors on this version. The embodiment and raised eyes all over the print are amazing.

Good move. I wish I would have been paying attention. I was kicking that idea around the other day but knew i wouldn't be able to move the 1st edition fast enough even at cost. That holofoil stamping is going to look amazing with the color layout of the Night edition.

i feel like the day edition colors work better because of the contrasting colors. the night edition looks kind of washed out in dark purple.

a color i love but it just make the image feel flatter. but thats just me.

Totes agree. Night is pure cash grab and whiner passification.

I dont have a lot of pastel colors in my house, on the walls or artwork, therefore the first edition seemed a little too light for my tastes.

The night version would fit our homes color palette much better.

It will be interesting to see how many whiners bought this. I'm guessing 700.

Final count was around 780 for the Night Mode Edition of the Editor. I bought both the night and the regular version. Sold the regular because I like the color scheme on the night version. Both are awesome prints with very interesting raised printing technique for on the eyes in the flowers and on the lady.

It’s a shame the flippers will do anything to make a buck and take opportunities to own a piece away from a real collector. JJ’s prints are just so much better quality then what the majority of artists put out. His designs are amazing as well. Love his timed editions cause I can always take my time and grab one at any time during the drop period.

I don't follow this artist, so I know I'm late to the party, but this thing looks pretty damn impressive from a technical standpoint.
I just saw the video on IG :shock: .

It’s even better in person. He’s a cut above on every category compared to others on the quality of his prints. No one else comes close. If you love his style it’s a no brainer to pick up everything he puts out.

Yeah, his prints are drymounting incredible in person. The actual printing is immaculate. The only other artist that has come close to these prints was Horkey's Ikebana 2.5 but obviously on a much smaller scale.
