850 might actually be the right price to eliminate most speculating flippers but still sell out instantly. Genius.

MBW does not do original images. Not his thing.

$850 must be due to the extra large size and extra colors (18 total screens.)

Why the hell is this print so large anyways? What would you do with this? I guess if you owned a recording studio you could throw it up on the wall but that's about it.

There's just so little originality. Why isn't the rockwell estate coming after him?

No kidding.

With his prices continuing to be on the up and up (yes, it's 18 colors and large so I "kind of" get it) I am pretty sure I won't be trying for of his prints in the future. Really what is to stop him from going for these prices? They'll all instantly sell out and if they were half the price 75% of the run would end up on the secondary market, so why not.

I'll be happy with my "Cover Girl" the one and only Brainwash I have been able to get from the source, not that I have tried for many.

Who is the 4th photo of? You have Jay-Z, Snoop, and Puffy/Diddy/P-Diddy/whatever the hell he calls himself these days. Who is the other person? Kind of looks Milli Vanilli-ish.
