Mitch, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "will definitely happen" what are the chances of this becoming a print?

I've wanted a print of that ever since I first saw it in the top 10 horkey thread. High ISO.

Really cool to see Ken give some insight into his working process. I wonder if the other artists of the Vacvvm pushed him toward getting back to traditional inks, or at least inspired him to.

I feel there's some degree of that. Not that the other artists coerced him in some way. But more the inspiration. The whole idea of the artists pushing themselves to go the extra mile and break new ground to match up against their peers. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts sort of thing. I'm super excited about this piece. To see Ken pull out the inks after nearly a decade to wrap it up by hand, is really special. :clap:

This looks so drymounting great. I will probably take the plunge and make my first vacvvm purchases with this one.

Looks amazing. Can't wait to see the finished piece.

I really enjoy seeing Ken dive into the (fine) art illustrative world.
