Olly, have you seen The Wind Rises yet? Would love a print for it some day.

Honestly growing up collecting baseball cards (which is hundreds if not thousands), it is way more fun chasing then it is buying a set. No accomplishmnet to just buying!

Olly Moss @ollymoss Feb 28
Still decompressing after The Wind Rises, but I think it might be my favourite Miyazaki film. Completely stunning.
While I like Mononoke, I feel like it's the weakest of the 4. I think Olly felt slightly constrained to stick to the same style he did with Totoro, and perhaps didn't turn out as strong as it might have if he had a little more freedom with it. Of course this is all conjecture and I could be completely wrong, but that's the way it seems to me.Nemesis01 wrote:I really hope Olly finds time to do all of the ghibli series...and although I love his newer ghibli works I hope they are more in line with the totoro, princess mononoke styles as they look great together. Nausicaa print would be my grail right now
The Breaking Bad 5x5s took a while to ship out to everyone (3 months). There hasn't been any news on edition size or when they will ship.Vedderman23 wrote:Any updates on the True Detective 5x5s? First time buying any of Olly's smaller prints, wasn't sure how long the timeframe usually goes for those.
I know what you mean – it looks and feels more like a studio product rather than an “olly moss” print – it seems lacking in Mossness (unlike, say, Jungle Book which was something of a return to the more design-led style that most of his fans seem to be fans of (and which is sadly reflected in the aftermarket price of that print which means I wont be getting one unless I manage to score the next “Jaws” and trade for one)Nemesis01 wrote:Yeah its all preference I guess. I agree that monoke isn't necessarily the best of the series but I guess I am a set/theme kind of guy so I like how the Totoro and Mononoke look displayed together...even howls can sort of fit into the theme slightly. Sadly although spirited away was probably my most hyped Olly Ghibli print at the time for some reason I was let down by it. Not to say it isn't a great piece of art but it I guess it just wasn't what I was expecting and did not see it going with the other Moss prints I have. Have not seen it in person though so I am sure one day it may grow on me.
