I'm just a decoy Joe. Or a bot. Or both, probably.

Seriously though, looks like Burlesque did a fantastic job. Video was definitely necessary to show off that it looks like silver or pewter - was personally wondering if it'd look dark but that doesn't look like the case at all. And that letterpress looks like it came out great. I can see why Maze went out in all those different editions, really interesting to see a piece executed in such different print mediums. Really feels like buying any one of the three types - screenprint, giclee, letterpress - is a different experience than the other altogether.

Won't lie either. I was most nervous about the screen print as well. Not even about the color more just the detail. I really can't wait for you guys to see these. You also aren't factoring in how large this print is and its great.

My only thought was "will the smell be right?"

Welker stinky ink for the win!

Maze is the only drop I've missed this year and watching the details pour in about these prints and the process is like dumping tequila and salt in an open wound with an eye dropper.

Check these torn edges on the color, plop....

See how great the metallic inks look printed, plop....

Wow the impressions on this letterpress, plop....

I might jump of a bridge when the pencil giclee info comes.

Its tough for sure, but luckily you have a fudge ton of great trades and probably wont have an issue finding one. You'll have this on your wall one day. You're just not sure how yet, and that will come. Good luck and best to you.

I know I will acquire at least the color one day, looking at the bare spot that would be perfect above the tv in my master everyday will make the wait seem 3x as long.

I am an average at best buyer on the drop. I managed to pick up the color on my own and a friend was able to grab me a pencil. My initial feeling is that the pencil will be going on the wall (smaller and more detail), but, hell, do I love having the choice. Anyone else score these two? Or the set?
