Horkey just about summed it up for this one. Dont know a better poster to match feel of the movie
Image
Glad I was able to get my hands on one of these
Image
Been after this one for a while, and after getting scammed for a couple prints in my first attempt for it, nice to know at last I have it(kinda jumping the gun on this one as it's en route)
Image
Picked this one up earlier in the year, someday the set will be complete
Image
Friend was able to hook me up with this one at a decent price, letting me to pass it off to my dad for xmas
Image

Been a solid but expensive year :pint:
Honorable mention because it gets no love

5. I've been waiting to purchase something from this artist since I discovered "Black Domina" way too late. This won't replace that as my favorite, but it's the one that's come the closest. Apparently I didn't take any pics, though.

4. I had to trade a good one for this, but I don't regret it.

3. One of my goals in this hobby is getting signed copies of posters for all the shows I've been to. I landed these two in one transaction, so I'm cheating and calling them one poster:

4. Speaking of shows I've been to, this night was top 5 nights of the year for me:

5. Django Wood - you really can't fully admire the beauty of this print until you see it on wood

Image
4. There Will Be Blood - got this on my phone in the middle of texting my wife. marriage finally paid off

Image
3. A Peculiar Group of Collectors - what started as a cool freebie turned into a defining moment symbolic of so much more

ImageImage
2. Moss Spirited Away variant and Howl's Moving Castle variant - some of Olly's finest work. getting these and more importantly reacquiring these was a miracle. which brings me to

1. This community - the people i've met in this community this year, from Blair to Andy to Joe to Ray to Justin to Mike to Olly to Mo to Dave to Bruce to James to Cody to Chad to Hamburger to so very many of you who've taken the time to show me what the spirit of humanity is all about. after the mosses were lost and stolen from me at SDCC, it was a thing of beauty to see this community rally to help me get them back. an unforgettable, moving experience that made me look at life in a whole new light. not to mention all the other junk i went through this year, from health problems to backstabbers, you guys have been there. the friends i've made in this hobby are far, far more meaningful to me than any print possibly could. cheers drymounters :pint:

1. Image
Probably isn't even worth that much but it was still difficult to track down. It was the last time Beastie Boys played Milwaukee and one of MCA's last ten shows.
2. Image
I participated in the workshop on this one.

It isn't always about how much something is worth, that's for sure.
