Now prove me wrong people! :D
Yeah, I debated including the sleeve of the Basement Set along with both prints in one big frameup but decided to leave it out and just frame both prints separately (w/o the sleeve) because I wasn't sure if it was gonna work out.

I personalty don't understand why someone would frame a certificate of authenticity seperate from the print it's certifying. I know people have done it; i just don't understand it. My frameup will have them paired
I personally don't understand why someone would frame a COA at all... It might be beautiful.... but it is still just a COA...

At first I was thinking that (if I had purchased this) I would probably just tuck the COA in the back of the frame so that they aren't lost/separated, but I'm pretty sure I see merit in keeping the two in different locations... Just in case something got stolen, etc. (although i guess this would be more important with more valuable art)
Doubt someone is gonna care that much to steal a timed edition Horkey with a run size in the 400s off your wall. Even if they did, what's it gonna cost to replace it? $150-200? Wouldn't worry about it, haha.

Anti-hype!! With that embossing and coa this is worth $400 or $500 easy! :p

Not sure if anyone had seen or was following the progress of the Supersonic Invitational @Spokeart but it looks as though Ruas will be having new work(s) to contribute. Curious to see if whats up and coming from him at the Invitational will be available at The VACVVM in a variant or otherwise.
