Has a private commission group produced anything great?

From time to time, especially lately, I have seen knew art pop up on the main page that is a private commission. It seems like a lot of the PC art is "okay" but I have yet to come across one piece that was great or a must have. For those NOT in a Private Comission group is there anything youve seen you had to have? I haven't come across one piece that's a must have just mostly "that's nice but I could pass."

Taylor's Lost in Translation for sure. Probably Eng's 2001 too. There's one coming out soon that will make the short list as well but I can't talk about it.

I'd also technically put Durieux's transportation series in the commission grouping too and the Zephyr print of that series is a masterpiece.

Vania's The Bride is amazing. Lookin forward to DZOOlivier's True Detective too...I did quite like Weston's Good Bad and Ugly...but there has been some right dross that would never have seen the light of day if it hadn't been commissioned

All of Tomer's Kubricks, Krzysztof Domaradzki's recent works, and Eng Predator all jump readily to mind.

Not really. To be fair, a few I've seen were okay...it's the subject matter that just didn't appeal to me. Not something that I would hang.
