Call it a mystery print by a mystery artist throw in your money and trust the guys leading it.
A group this big will never be all in agreement on one thing.
Pretty much. I feel like the group is big enough that if it had to decide between 2-3 possible properties, that would be the most feasible option while making it easier for people to opt in or out.

As long as people treat this commission group more like a subscription to get prints of certain properties they'd like, as opposed to a group that can have a say on every drawn and inked detail, the problems should be smaller.

Again, a lot of people who aren't in any commission groups would love one of those commissioned pieces (Englert Aliens, Gabz Predator) and that's without having any input in the works themselves...

Not trying to toot my own horn, but it wouldn't be any problem to pull up a Google Drive and have people submit their top three suggestions. Tally them up, vote again, and see what the result is, and how people feel about it. That's, IMO, a better idea than commissioning a mystery print. At least give people the chance to opt out.
Now watch what you say, or they'll be calling you a radical, a liberal, fanatical, criminal. Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable.

Got an official ruling from the EB administrators and I dropped EB from the name of the group. We all know where we met and this was started.

Thanks,

I think a Facebook vote would be just as sufficient. Gather some interest and choose 3-5 options. Then vote. Top gets picked. Second can be added to the queue or same idea but different artist? I like where this is headed. Great idea David! :clap: :pint:

This' what I'd do. Start with large list, vote until it's a small list. Let the artist pick which.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was a scientific solution for this problem.

You guys don't get this and never will , if it take debate to decide to the artist , the subject, the color , the paper nothing will ever get done.
You joined because you believe in the leadership to lead and believe they will make the best decision.
Let them drymounting do it.

I'm fine with just picking the movie, or at the very least picking a few and letting the artist pick what they think they could do best. If we had different leaders we'd end up with 30 different drymounting JP prints or some other overdone movie. Christ, the post right above this said Robocop. Hasn't Mondo already done like, 5 Robocop prints?

I'm all for just throwing money into a bucket for a commissioned movie poster of a movie I like. The rest can be a gamble. Hell, artists I LOVE have done prints I don't like, so it's not like there is some guarantee if I pick the artist that it's going to be whatever I dream of.
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

I'm all for movies that haven't had the poster treatment yet, or don't have something exceptionally cool already. Case in point, Fight Club. Or Road House.
