In Phlegm's case, I doubt it. He very quietly made 125,000GBP on the book alone, plus another 35,000GBP on the tardy animal stampede.
You're his accountant now? Sweet gig.

i mean clearly there were no costs involved with the production and shipping of those products. full net profit of that amount.

Are there any Phlegm pieces one could buy as an intro to Phlegm to have a piece of his art in ones collection? I've never seen a piece of his in person and am kinda fascinated by his work

Pretty sure Fight or Flight is still the cheapest, with copies going for around $600. Documenting Everything was around there for a while, but appears to have picked up a bit.

Just as an intro to the work though, that book he put out is excellent and sub-$100.

Edit: there is also this piece, which is pretty small: http://expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/173977; last I saw Jettad had a copy for around $150; just if you wanted any print of his as a starting place.

would say the book is the best. it has a fold out poster of Civilization.

But prints themselves there are many that are at cost.

Grabbed a signed one for the bookshelf, and an unsigned one to frame some pages. He sent the signed copy with some old newspapers that I used to basically paper mache the matting.

Love this one, and was going to let go of my spare copy, but now may have to cut it up to frame instead.
