I'd maybe be in for one if they were selling them separately, but I don't like it enough to drop that much for two.

I don't think that's unreasonable for a set. I'd be in for one but just bought a single.

Yup, a set at the show ran you about $380 after tax. Factor in shipping costs and these are damn near cost and you didnt have to deal with the nightmare that was the organization at the show or if you were an out of towner, fly in for it. Seems plenty fair to me :pint:

Price is perfectly fair but being limited to one as a non-VIP at the show, I wish I had a shot at buying the other. It was a really hard decision to make

Always wondered what happened to the rest of the prints from the show as we know they didn't sell out. Guess now we know lol, but pricing was fair for what they charged for them at the show.

Have had the Osprey version since the show its next in line for a frame. Great print I think those prices were fair for the set.

Super old Instagram post, but I wanted to comment about it. Always loved the grim feeling of this piece, a moment of death captured so honestly. Great balance of horror vacui and storytelling. I wonder if Aaron stumbled upon this scene in passing or if it was more deliberately created. Love the classic ornate lettering and attention to packaging to boot.

Xander, completely agree. Hoarfrost is a beautiful image. It evokes strong feelings of mortality and the realization we are all just animals on this planet who share in both life and death. For one day we will all return to the soil from which life was created.

On a lighter note, check out this Flying Mobula!

I don't think I ever found all the hidden goats in that image.
