I don't. I'm working on a frame cluster idea/project for all my Geddes prints, tear sheets, etc.
Neither do I. Despite interpretations though, he obviously has an interest in dark subject matter.

Love all of them :pint:
$250 for the pair shipped and insured. Both are mint. Shipping should be around 7 or 8 bucks.

FYI: this was the collection that didn't make my walls, still beats your shitty little collections...and if it doesn't, I still couldn't care less.

kitchen:
4 Amy Sol

hallway:
one side - 3 Kawasaki
other side - 4 Horkey

bedroom:
1 Horkey
1 Esao Andrews

I wanna play along!

Here's part of the stairwell and one wall in the dining room. The entire house is like this, but...well, 3 photo limit.

"I say we let 'im go."

Thanks, man!

Yeah, I bought those three with the three WARRIORS prints you can see in the stairwell (along with that X THE MAN WITH XRAY EYES piece), all at the same time.

I'd already filled all the walls that would take 24" wide frames, and needed thinner prints to fill out some of the smaller spots. Originally, the dining room had just a single row of three prints in it...but eventually the number of un-hung-yet-framed pieces of artwork started piling up, so we took those down and made more economical use of the wall space. The living room, my bedroom, and the upstairs office all look pretty much like these areas...next stop: ceilings.

Very nice, I just don't have nearly that kind of space, as a matter of fact I'm running out as is, i wished there were more 12x36 prints that I liked so I could squeeze more in :) Seems like everything I get is a 24x36, I've got a few spots reserved for the Ansin Trons and a few others that I still want though!

When I first moved in, I didn't have anything on the walls for the first year that I lived here. People would come over and bitch about how "empty" the place seemed, but it never bothered me.

And then, at last year's MMM screening of JURASSIC PARK, I bought my very first Mondo print. Thus began the addiction, and my place went from "spartan and colorless" to "overwelmingly colorful" in the space of about 7 months. Now instead of bitching about the walls being bare, people bitch about the exorbitant amount of money I've spent rectifying the "bare wall" problem.

I think the real problem is, everyone I know just likes to bitch.
