Shockingly, it seems to be legit. I question the sanity of a lot of bidders in this auction though. There are many pieces that went for WAY over current secondary prices and many that are currently available on ebay and elsewhere for a fraction of the closing price. I am a big Chevrier fan, but ~$9k+ for this print is just ridiculous.

She got all pissed about a piece Raid 71 did (stan lee) and subsequently refused to work with Bottleneck Gallery.

People called her the C word and other stuff.

IWish came in to fight the EB misogyny.


I'm sure that auction sale was legit. People are idiots and live auction purchases are a status symbol for many people. Her market has softened considerably though.

From what I've been able to find out this price realized was for a charity. May explain the result!

Either that or this auction house is amazing at generating interest because a lot of those prices are insane. There was a Ben Frost print from 1xrun that went for over $2800 for the smaller version while the large version with a smaller run size I could buy on eBay today for likely well under $500. An Eine Adventure print went for over $2500, a MBW Jimi print went for $1100+ when they typically sell for under $500, Dot Dot Dot Handgun for $3k+. So many crazy numbers.

Things sold in that auction over original cost for items where one can still purchase for OG cost. Absurd.

Really hate the company. I don't know about the products but avoid the customer service if you can.

They shipped mine to an incorrect address after I had corrected it through their customer service. The package never got redirected and got shipped back to sender. They ignored all my emails for a couple months and it wasn't until I put in a paypal dispute that they finally said the box and product had been smashed and damaged (by me) and they weren't giving me a refund. Paypal sided with me though so it worked out okay in the end.

I totally drymounted up by not looking at IG for a few days and missed those. I checked IG the evening those went on sale and saw them, I would have bought one for sure. if anyone has regrets (I know, it's unlikely), let me know.
