This has been me all day! POTD for sure.

At least I'll have a hoodie and patch and pin. Way cooler than just some piece of paper on the wall, right? RIGHT?

Oh fudge yeah! And a god damn sticker! Can't wait for my package to arrive, maybe Mitch will mess up and send me a print instead ;)

I mean, drymount that! Hoodie, etc. is way better!

jcbudny wrote:Well the verdict is in, this is an AMAZING piece of art by Aaron. Looks far more detailed and textured in person than you would have guessed from the JPGs. I can understand why Aaron might not have been happy with this as a screen print, as a giclee you get the feel that this is the original painting, the textures come through and it's fantastic!

I won't quote all of your photos, but thank you for posting them. They really don't represent just how impressive this print is in person. The colors are super vibrant and there's so much detail to be discovered. The layer of varnish reminisce of the texture of the painting was also a great call. That, the metallic ink and the embossed Vacvvm monogram all add to its magnificence.

This one is a definite keeper.

Bravo, Aaron and Mitch!

Now the only point I would honestly disagree with you on...
I have ALWAYS loved No More Noir. But I think this print could very well change my mind, based on execution / presentation.
But self portrait still really does nothing for me. Sorry. I think Aaron has likely done much better "self portraits" that didn't
carry the title. I think Graveyard / The Siren being one. 110% my opinion. For what that *might* be worth.

:cheers:

PS. It was really awesome getting to meet, hang out with and drink with you in NY.

I have my moments. :wink:





Amidst the dick jokes and troll hunting...
Some backstory or even good old fashioned common sense *might* just slip out.
