Seems like there are quite a few artists that are shooting themselves in the foot lately with the really high prices on their prints. It's a shame...

His OG's this size were going for $700-1300. $350 for an edition giclee print is a little steep.

Really don't think he's "shooting himself in the foot". How many prints has he released in the last 2 years? Four including these two? If he priced them at $150-250 everybody would be screaming when flippers sell them for what he's asking for them. God forbid an artist price his own works at what he thinks he can sell them for! Funny how MBW releases sh*t print after sh*t print and people happily fork over $500 for editions of 100+ And then when someone talented comes along releasing small editions of PAINTINGS people don't like it. If that's the case then don't buy it and keep your hard earned money for the next MBW photoshop failip...simple as that. :lol:

Price is spot on IMO, they will eventually sell out, and when they start arriving people will complain that they originally complained about the price.

Good for Jacub.

Had a feeling they would be priced out of my range but was hoping that wouldn't be the case. Looking forward to more great work from Jacub and congrats on what will surely be a sellout.

Love these and very excited about the drop. Will be trying to buy both to match the other two prints I have of his. Happy for Jacub!

was set to buy when I read news of the releases then saw the prices and as much as I like the images the price turned me away. I was thinking around $100 maybe as much as $150 but wow I wasn't even close. If he can sell it at this price more power to him though.

I believe he will. His 'Best Laid Plan's' was canvas and really is stunning in person. The quality is high and really is vivid. I think it is aces to go the canvas route. Only a small distinction between that and the original. They will sell out, just not in seconds. He has staggering talent.

Shipping´s included, right? Brings the price closer to 300ish which is kinda steep but fair considering edition size and on canvas.
