Reminds me of the time I ordered a variant and they sent the regular.

Emek made me pay for the shipping back to them and when I asked about it all they said was our bad or something stupid along that lines. (didn't miss a print drop that year)

Apparently nobody is a loyal fan unless you forking out the serious dough.

Not surprising he did that but sucks just the same. At least consider yourself lucky cause you dont have to flush anymore money away towards his overhyped empire.
Emek has always been one of the most hypocritical artists out in the space. He plays the pious, holier than all flippers card publically but privately, he helped create flipping by propping his business model up on rare variants sold to “exclusive super collector” clients who in turn flipped the fudge out of them... with a kick back to the little man of course.
Tough to stand behind a bunch of skulls and bones when you soak the whole picture in....
Huh?
Helped create flipping? :lol:
Aside from Norby, who has put major work in with the La Imagerie haul, Emek will cut you off for flipping. Same as it’s always been.

Luls.

The email to papaver is dickish too. Also, what fredo said at the end of the previous page.

And it’s a pass on the ladybug.

I checked during the EMEK/Munk One event a few weeks back, at that time, most were still in single digits. Chief was in the mid 20s.

I was going to ask this weekend what they were at but the Klausen event was cancelled.

Very glad i decided to get the Dead & Co AP. The images are much sharper and crisp compared to the show edition. It's one of my favorite gig prints from the last few years but I love insects.
