I was reading through old threads and someone asked him at Mondo-Con what the film he would most like to do next was and he had said Seven. He said he even had an idea for it. I really hope it makes it to print, that would be an instant Holy Grail for me.

I would cut my lovehandles off for a Horkey Seven print!

Salivating at the thought of that! Sounds promising too.

Horkey's style is really well-suited to dark subject matter. I think his spin on Se7en would be incredible.

Really quite beautiful. Nice colors.

Edit to bring image to new page.

Is that the full piece? I quite like it. Very enigmatic.

Aaron's paintings seem to be less liked than his screenprints, actually. So I'm sure you won't be alone.

It's certainly not within punching distance of any of my favorite Horkey pieces, but I do find it quite unique looking and it's full of Aaron's typical symbolism (string, thread, needle, etc.) As a painting that fits within his larger body of work, I really like it.

I'm not big on it either. No doubt the detail is phenominal though.

Holy drymount this is incredible! So much detail, movement and contrast. Almost thought Sunsetter was going to be the giclée, but this will do just fine. Can't wait to stare at this piece during the show next weekend!
