some are a bit distracting. don't really like the "marble" paper too much.
i thought the red variant hulaweens were really cool.
AJ is a phenomenal artist, but both of those fall into the "foil for the sake of foil" for me, I just dont see the added value there. Just my 2 cents though, if you dig em thats all that matters. :pint:

Maybe my photos don't highlight them well. They both definitely take advantage of the foil medium IMHO. Nice cutouts all around that let the foil shine through. I understand that foils just aren't some people's bag though.
Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view

Except maybe the guys who got those misplaced regs... Unprofessional, imo.

At least that sent something unlike the local celebrity over there.

Not exactly prints, per se, but I've been really interested in Ise Ananphada's work lately, especially with all her upcoming commissions. I saw she did some work for Thai Airways and ordered a large format calendar of theirs that featured her art. I removed her prints and cut off the bottom part with the dates, and ended up with some pretty cool pieces by her. They're all decent size too, approx 16x20.

That's probably my favorite one! I was initially interested in the second one pictured because I'm half Thai and wanted some sweet heritage type art to hang up, but saw that one and changed my mind about my favorite. Plus, the calendar itself was only 10 bucks haha.
