Based on the IG pictures I was most excited for Symbiosis but having received my set, Purple Haze is completely mesmerizing. I find myself just staring in wonder at it.
Was a little surprised that The Crossing had the second smallest edition size even though it won the IG runoff ballot against Journey West (which was my favorite of all the potential prints). Crossing got 758 votes in the runoff but only 246 people bought it!

I voted for Journey West as well. Crossing turned out great though

Not really surprising at all. Most people have no intention of spending a couple hundred bucks on art even if they "vote" for something. It's free to vote. I saw a meme a little while back that an artist posted about the number of people asking for something to be a print vs the number of people who actually buy said print.

Yeah, these turned out great. I too preferred Journey West to The Crossing, but it turned out great. They all did. I ordered a couple Spotlight frames - will hopefully have these on the wall soon.

I didn't get any pieces this round, but here is my framed "West of the Rio Grande" print he released a while back:

Also, someone should commission Mark to do a print for a John Ford western.

Oof, that looks gorgeous! Rio Grande and Missing Horse are big ISOs for me.

Not Maggiori but anyone see the Logan Maxwell Hagege coming out of the Maxwell Alexander Gallery this past Sunday? A impressive 78 color screen print title Arizonaland. Just as impressive, the edition of 65 at $2500 was sold out less than two hours later when I got my first chance to open up the email.

I generally find his stuff way more interesting than Maggiori's but thought that image was boring af. Also wouldn't be surprised if they had been preselling it for weeks, and what they put up online were leftovers.

I couldn't pull that trigger on $2500. Even at 78 colors, maybe at $10/color I would lol

Was hoping that the Logan Maxwell Hagege print was going to be a bit more affordable.... oh well.

Looks like Mark is going to do another print release in December. Electric Desert OG sold earlier this year at auction for $99,450 :shock:

Hoping the print sizes will be smaller this time.
