If Emek ever releases a poster I don't like I think I am going to throw a temper tantrum.

Nah, just honest criticism.

I get it... negative space that's all foil... but this one actually works.
I can't stand sparkle foil 9 times out of 9 with lava foil right behind that.
The image is wonderful. Personally I think it's one of the rare times lava foil doesn't look like crap.
It works really well with black.

Emek is one of the few who uses foil correctly... It's difficult to criticize him on much.
I have more of gripe when Sperry uses the same light blue opal and silver paper on almost every project.

I agree Emek uses foil better than probably anyone else out there. I just can't stand lava. Especially when it covers the entire image.

This is probably the only print I've ever liked on lava foil. The lava doesn't bleed through the ink, and it's only visible in a few spots. Really works well, especially as a Vegas print.

But thank you for actually discussing it, and not being a pompous douche like the other people who commented.

Whenever I receive an Emek foil I hear my eyes tell my ears they have no idea what they're missing out on.
One just arrived yesterday.

How does one score a foil Emek. He's been my fav artist since I got into concert prints and Ive never owned one or been offered one.

Very quiet release from EMEK today. I didn't get an email or see a post from anyone until just now on FB.

Printed on vintage dictionary paper. I like the novelty.

Someone did post about it today, but, for whatever reason, deleted the post 10-15 minutes later.

P.S. I kind of dig it, but not $90, including shipping to Canada, dig it. Also, I think I am tapped out for a couple of weeks.

Cool, thanks for the head's up.

I grabbed one then had a serious pause when shipping was more that 50% the cost of the print. $23.67 for shipping :roll:

+1 though, of course

:cheers:
I'm not someone else.

they come pre-matted. wonder if it's acid free? i was tempted but the $24 shipping turned me off. for some reason, no interest on dropping $24 on a $40 print but i probably wouldnt complain at all if the print was $400. moral of the story: ill never be happy.
me owwww
