If we really want this to feel Geddes-like someone should put a couple on ebay for $2000 or $3000.

I love Geddes work.

I put the reference to Geddes on the title because Henrik is a realistic painter too and I thought that Geddes fans would like to know his work.

Or maybe it was cuz you knew it would get a lot more views than putting the name of the actual artist.

I'm holding out until some of his Frizzell pieces become prints.

As Jane's Addiction says, "there ain't no wrong now, ain't no right". It's just hard to deny the hype factor inherent to the title and subsequent sales progress update. If this dude ends up getting more business out of it, there's nothing wrong with that.

So our thoughts are in tune about this.

Btw, what do you think about Henrik work? Not this particular print but all his work in general..

The kid's got talent. Most of the subject matter is not my bag, but he's definitely a skilled painter.

There are two or three artists I've been following, and purposely and selfishly have not shared with the EB community. I want an OG from each before I shout their names from the roof top. Now that this thread exists, I can safely say that I've been watching this artist for a while now, and I'm actively looking for an OG. And I agree with others that this is not my favorite of the pieces.

You better get a free print for marketing it on EB. This edition is going to sell out based on this thread.
