Kinda disappointed in the fact that the full size was IMH. I feel out of those 9 there are several that are much stringer images. I didn't get one but recently I haven't scored a single drop of his anyways.

It was absolutely last place out of the nine for me. Hoping they all get bigger treatment soon...3 of them I'd be really excited for.

Which 3? Personally I'd love to see Patiently Perched, Bask Boost, and Line in the Water, and Flutter Friend.

As a fly fisher I was hoping, still am, for Line in the Water. That'd be a wall hanger for me. :D

But I like IMH!

Wow, someone's in a shitty mood. Just trying to help out. And I don't even own the print, so it's not about me flipping it. I use ebeans, and try to add art whenever I can. Is that such a terrible thing? You really are trying hard to be a total asshole. Since when was helping a thing to be demonized?
Settle down Alice, I was just making a practical suggestion. Rather than putting info in piecemeal wait until you have the basic info instead of guessing. You are on here enough that waiting to submit COMPLETE info (which you will likely have in less than a day anyhow) seems to be smarter, more efficient and less prone to errors than putting some info in and then submitting corrections (or forgetting about it) down the line. I was actually in a great mood today and wasnt trying hard to be an asshole at all. I am from NY so it comes naturally.

Patiently perched is the one I'd like to see printed, too. But it was a fun way for him to do the sale.

I'm still head over heels in love with his Pepperland print. I'm hoping I can get an amazing framing job at some point and I'm going to be patient until I can. I generally like his original creations, but this thing hits on one of my favorite licenses and is just so perfect. I think it's a steal for its going price right now.

That one seemed to be the most popular choice. The demand is clearly there so maybe that gets the FS treatment soon

I would have voted A Line in the Water. One of my favorite 5x5s

I hope that Perched is on the list somewhere. But A Line in the Water is hopefully just above that on that list :lol:

And I am not sure what the drymount people are bitching about (not so much here, thankfully). The guy is as fair as it gets, IMO. I mean he does lotteries/"games", announced drops, "surprise" drops, even a late night drop once in a while, which practically no one in the Western hemisphere does. No doubt, I certainly have my preferences, but I will definitely not be talking about what's fair and what's not (lotteries suck, give me more night/unannounced drops :lol:).

I prefer drops, because I feel I have a way better chance on scoring(And I LOVE the rush), but lotteries are tons of fun as well. Fun making a guess, and praying to see that invoice. He really does do it better than any artist. He's constantly switching it up, and works hard to get art into collectors hands. You can see he's making the runs larger as well.

the gnomes are hard at drymounting work.

And they ship faster than anyone in the business. Between IMH and Smeezy, he sold about 400 prints yesterday. First batch of shipping notifications are already out. Most of the time, I score on Wednesday, and have print in hand by Monday. Not to add all the extras you get, and the super fair price he's been selling them at. Smeezy and NiNP were each like $57 after shipping. He and the gnomes definitely have my respect and admiration. They do a killer job.

^^^ I agree (although I rarely score on his Wednesday drops anymore)

Smart move to outsource some of the shipping to Ken at Paragon too.
