Mine was stuck on the gray processing screen for a bit, but got the email, and eventually the processing went away...

Bleh, just stuck debating...I do love the soundtrack and the Richard artwork especially (one of my first poster loves) the wife and I would listen the fudge out of it (hell I already hum the theme at random times) but the OCD in me would not be able to handle getting a black instead of the variant (even if it's supposed to sound better). Ah first-world problems...

I like to think I'm a nice guy, maybe a bit of a smart ass, but I prefer to be kind to people when I can. That being said, I don't think that means I have to sit idly by while the life gets sucked out of a genre of art that I feel very much attached to.
If I offended anyone today, I apologize, but in all fairness, you struck first.

Sold out. :P Plus the Richard artwork is one of my favorite pieces ever for a movie poster. Again, totally whining, but compared to the twitter crap... :roll:

I'll give credit where credit is due - he definitely has gone far in the art world, with his sales success & Mondo gallery show.

BUT, when he says this:

"When I see people trying to take shortcuts in their career only to over-saturate the market with more uninspired, lazy art, I take offense to that."

I would argue that the market for profile portraits, supers, and JLU's is about as saturated as it gets.

I'm pretty baffled that 1k copies of that record sold out that quickly. That's a hell of a lot of records.

EDIT: Of course, the record is hell of awesome. I GOT MINE JACK

Mike M. gives the name Mike, followed by a last name that also begins with an "M", a bad name.
