My first Mondo purchase was through gig posters. Rhys Cooper's TMNT AP prints direct from Rhys. He advertised them on GP.

I also enjoyed your process thread, Crosshair. Justin Santora's too.
Thanks. It was fun rolling those out.

There were posters over there that I have never seen anywhere else... Did the database over there just vaporize when the site went offline?

I miss that damned website so much. Just being able to blow hours looking through posters...I do appreciate that you used the RATT chat poster. So many funny memories. It felt awesome to meet Crosshairs this year and find out he talks as pretty in person!

I had the urge to mindlessly browse some gp's and then I remembered it was down. :(

There was a website that had cached versions of gp you could peruse but it was so slow it wasn't worth the effort, at least the time I attempted to use it. Can't remember where I found it.

I reached out a couple times but never got a reply. I have a feeling a lot of people with an assortment of intentions tried to make a pitch and Clay's just gonna sit on it for a while. Just speculation. I have no idea what was going on personally/professionally/financially.
