i am ready for this now:

People just don't realize how amazing this is. Permanent collection piece



Image

I have always had a lot of respect for Mondo and Associates, but if you had told me they were going to put something this phenomenal together, I would have laughed at you...but they did. And it's more beautiful every time I see it



Image

Good good dude hooked me up with this...i love the kind of things, where it doesn't really matter how much money you have they just aren't available. Those kind of in search of's tickle me for weeks when I pick them up, and this lovely poster means more to me than anything else i picked up this year



Image

I sold this a couple years ago for rent money when I was hurting...problems with a lady, quitting my job, needing just enough cash to make it to Ohio. I bought another copy finally and it was like a piece of my life fitting back into the puzzle



Image

This put the community back into expressobeans. I've made so many new friends through this club and I can only hope to keep making more...even if some of them are straight up texas hust-la's :D

if we were given a longer list you should have seen some of the things, good buddy! I wasn't even able to fit Ansin's Gold Metropolis on here and i really wanted to, like more than anything or any of my originals. 2013, I may be working in a camping trip in Colorado. I will stop by denver to drink up hearty style before i go out to fend among the bears.

Yes! That's what it's all about. Winning an F5 battle for a popular print might give you a brief buzz, but scoring that seemingly unattainable poster that you've been after for years puts you on a higher plane of satisfaction.

deads ... your post and others like it are the reason I look at the EB forum first thing in the morning ... with that first cup of coffee and before the newspaper.

Absolutely!

I got into the art game late last year so i have nothing compared to id say about 95% of you, but here are the top 5 for me and the ones i really love! (also don't judge, i stick to spusta, mccarthy, ryan, and methane (don't judge even more haha))

This is one i was looking at and smiled every time i saw it. I knew i had to have it and even though its pretty premature, this is a print that would go in my kids room!
Image

My first GiD print that got me hooked and convinced me to work for the TDEBN. I turn on and off the lights looking at this. To me its 2 prints in one.
Image

Again, not a big deal, but the image captivates me. The color and detail on such a small print is great.
Image

This is one my gf got me for my birthday. Even though it looks kinda washed out on the picture, the silver inks look great. Also I love snowboarding and i met her on a snowboarding trip so it means more (awwwww, yea i know)
Image


And finally, if this doesn't invoke feeling in you, you have no soul

me owwww

Kev, you have no idea what good printing is nor common sense in terms of opinions. You like registration and computer precision, giclees were invented for you, purchase them and be happy.
