I'd love one if you have any extras.
Might have given my last away with some comics recently, but I can take a gander when I get home.

Agreed, loving the change in subject matter, I hope he does similar work for the next book iteration.

I had gotten word from Phlegm that he destroys all the etching plates after a print run. Some folks were inquiring a few pages back.

What a waste! I am sure he recycles them. :P

People would definitely pay a pretty penny for them. But I understand why he does it, so that nobody can reproduce his art.

I always thought it was strange that Faile keeps a lot of their screens from their art. I would assume most artists destroy their screens.

I wonder how many screens of Horkey's older work are just laying around BoNA right now. :drool:

I like to think that all screens or plates for limited edition art are destroyed once the run is complete. It serves to uphold the integrity of the edition.

Congrats! I have all of them except for 1 and 4. You got the heavy lifting out of the way early.

I'm sure most of the print houses clean their screens when they're done printing to use for another print. Those things are expensive. And, for screen printing, it's not very difficult to burn another set of screens if you need to for some reason. Plates for etchings are a different story though, once those are destroyed I'm sure it'd be damn near impossible to make another one that exactly matches the first.

Used my extra book that I ordered to do have a couple images framed. My framer was able to use the newspaper it came with as a wrap for the matting. I had a really difficult time narrowing it down to two pages that I wanted to have done. Sorry for the glare!
