Mogwai is great. I want to track one down myself, but I normally don't buy gig posters. This would be in my top 3 favorite pieces by Aaron if I could just remove the giant red mogwai. As an art print this thing would kill. It's a beautiful image. Congrats mfaith!

Am I the only one that thinks of this owl when the New Horizons pictures of Pluto pop up?

Agree 100% with this. I don't collect gig prints, which unfortunately, forces me to miss a huge portion of some of Aaron's amazing early "bird" prints. I would love to see some of my favorites (like this Mogwai and the Andrew Bird) turned into letterpress prints, which are some of my favorite pieces Aaron has.

NASA spills not naught but lies. That 'hi-res' image is a Horkey drawing. They only utilize top talent for their schemes.

I'm actually kinda surprised at how few pics we've seen of Hork sketches...

Only 3 or so were completed by the end of the con. I've only seen one. Entirely possible that the other two arent big eb users

Oh. So they just mail the rest then? I figured they'd be done by the end of the day Sunday. Then again, i don't knoe how big they were, nor how quickly Aaron can knock one out, so that would make sense.

Yeah. They'll be mailed. He was sketching, then inking them. It was taking him quite a while. So he's gonna finish them up at home and ship them
