Wow they have done a great job capturing all the weathering and aging in that screen print as humanly possible

So it's definitely not this! :oops:

Always put your faith in MGW, if there's ever any doubt. :notworthy:

It would make sense for that to be the case since it is clearly the best colorway. Of course, that means they probably made it the most limited and expensive.

I'm amazed at what they've been able to do in a screenprint but I'm still not sold on what I've seen of the clouds in the background so far. Withholding judgement until I see the finished product though.

Dude, that's a very subjective thing. I mean, look at Whale Bone Grove. Three very different and distinct colorways, and each one has its own set of fans. Can't really say "this" objectively is the best. It's all down to personal tastes. Can only really say what's the best colorway...for you. :)

Right on. Yeah, that was my original thought too. But then Ben tagging BRLSQ in-between VACVVM and MF, made me second guess myself. :oops: Thought maybe there was some special coordinated thing they were doing together. In any event, I'm stoked they're handling the printing on this. Certainly looking like a killer set.
When was the last time Ben didn’t print a Horkey screenprint? Pushing a decade?
Ben printed mine at Burlesque with Aaron two years ago, in the throughs of a fever dream to boot.
