Sorry wasn't meant as a pointed attack at you. I was happy to buy the copy I got from you (and looking for a Gondek & Dface bills to go with it if you want to reach out to them!)
Just know I saw a lot of complaining from a vocal minority.

I only know you from online posts, Joe. You're...like...one of the most chill dudes I know. Amazing given what you have to put up with sometimes.

I was thrilled to get a tenner on the first go-round. Some reasons might sound silly...humor me.

Diana and I shared the same bday and I admired her. Darwin is a cool dude.

Like Banksy, I'm a former counterfeiter. I made a bunch of tickets on my mom's manual typewriter to spend at our annual school festival. I was around 10 yrs. old and didn't realize it was theft - I just thought I was being clever. Came home with...like...a dozen spin arts. Best festival EVER.

Didn't foresee any Banksy art purchases (prints) that are affordable. The purchase, pretty much, blew thru my entire year art budget. Don't care...worth it to me.

Thanks for that. To be honest its not really that bad. Doing this for a long time and I try to never talk to anyone as if I'm a business trying to sell something. Thats on you guys if you want to buy.

For this sale, last year was definitely a bit more challenging because people didn't understand the idea behind the sale and how unique it was. Lots of there are 100,000 of these dont buy comments. We know there is 100,000. We never said there wasn't. We just knew at the time what real ones were going for from trusted sources. However, still there was always that question if you were actually getting a real one or a fake one.

Essentially, this sale created its own market for Tenners which was cool to be a part of and also showed what we sort of build here with you guys which I loved. I mean we sold Lord of the Rings posters on Tuesday and then Banksy Tenners on Friday. Its just awesome to be in a position where we can always try different things. And we couldn't have gotten to that point without all of you.

This time around I noticed it was a lot of people not knowing what tier pricing was and thinking we were like one of the first places to do it. This was probably the only release where we could do it but it definitely worked. Loved that we got to try it.

Never understood why people get one of each variant per release, do you keep them all or is it just a lack of decisiveness on drop day?
