I couldn't be Happier with this as my first MBW! The size is a nice change from the larger formats, imo. Very classic Brainwash imagery. I'm stoked!

It was disclosed ahead of time that the prints were not perfect. Proceeds went to charity. People still bitched and tried to return prints.

It would not be a tax write-off. Most likely he still paid some tax on the proceeds of the sale, even though 100% was donated.
