I was just working on some framing measurements. Can anyone confirm the dimensions for the letterpress chess prints? Mine are nowhere near 8x10.8 " like what is listed in the database, so I'm wondering if that needs correcting . (They're also about 1/8" different from each other, but that's a different issue.)

Also, on an unrelated note, Royal Order #11 might want to contact me. :D

Mine are both about 6" x 9.5", with The Pawn being slightly longer.

Thanks. That's what I have also, including the Pawn being about 1/8" longer.

The Horkey/Mitchell fat bird Heavy Metal cover is up for sale in the HM store. Looks like there are three versions of covers this month so not sure how easy it will be to find this one in the wild...

Those royal order sketches all blow me away! So envious of you guys! Wish I was around as I would of jumped back then to sign up!
sitting at a business and was able to get a connection and just wanted to let you guys know the shirts are in stock in limited quantity.
These shirts...

I was pleased to add a few of these to my closet.
I missed yesterday's vacvvm drop but was still grabbed a hoodie and blue tee this morning. :)
Hope y'all are doing well! :cheers:

Wow I cannot wait to see this entire piece all together. Especially with the blind fox in the bottom part of the roof.

hey, so...not that any of you noticed or cared, but i stepped away from the ebeans game for a while...even skipped THC 2015...from a distance I followed the poster scene and still picked some up, but really only one's i couldn't live without....very few Horkeys (grabbed the Graveyard collab, duh) were even released in my absence. i was ignoring all my ebeans messages. I was just over most of it and needed a break.

the game finally pulled me back in when a chance to trade for a major Horkey ISO of mine popped up...the elusive Naif had finally called my name.

Just wanted to jump in here and thank Smokey for the TIP on that shirt, grabbed one, thanks! also, gotta agree with him about ALL these R.O. sketches...they are driving me insane, what the hell was i doing when signups for that were going down??!

...and to post of pic of three helmet-less Hork birds. One screen print, one letterpress, and one giclee. So stoked on finally landing a NAIF.
