Was really hoping for The Exchange or Exodus. LOVE Josh's work, but Sirens doesn't do much for me for some reason so will be passing on that one. Seems a LOT of people love it though so should make for a really successful print release for sure.

Sorry to those that were wanting Exodus. Chances are it will be up for the next print.

To those not crazy about Sirens, please don't go for it. Let us who really want this thing have a better chance!
If Exodus won, Ive already said(on JK forum) that I would not be F5ing.



Now then, if anyone wants to help a brotha out on drop day, Id really appreciate it! This one already has a spot on the wall.

I'd be happy to be a PB for somebody on this one when the time comes.

Edit-That was quick. This PB has now been booked!

It shouldn't be as hard as a other drops (Mondo, P&T, etc.).

Josh's website held up pretty well during the Stampede drop, though Stampede still sold out within minutes. The PangeaSeed website, on the other hand, crashed completely for the Scorch II drop (we still love you, PangeaSeed).

If you look at the current aftermarket prices for both prints, they're pretty close to face value, so be patient with getting a Sirens if you miss the drop.

Agreed. Plus, Sowers, Last Kiss, Stampede and Scorch I can all still be picked up near cost. So if you miss the drop, it shouldn't be the end of the world, just let the market settle.

it all depends on the edition size and overall size of the print imo. also with stampede and sowers they are both huge with big edition sizes so that turned many people away. scorch 1 and last kiss are much weaker images compared to sirens so i don't know if i would compare them

i do think josh's work is down a little overall in the aftermarket but we shall see where this one takes us, hopefully not to crazy for the unfortunate that miss out

pretty cool! any idea what this would cost? i bought Scorch from ebay for a good deal (imo) and recently the tinyshowcase print (Amazing!!)and I love them!! ive learned very quickly how expensive this hobby can be, and ive really had to hold back from buying several prints in the past week, as well as had to sell some stuff off which sucked. I learned of this site 2-3 months ago and love it here. Thx for all the advise via PMs from everyone. I have a couple of questions about Josh's sales.

Does he sell prints on his site? Or will he publish the sale link in an email? How does he handle his sales? Thx in advance!

Have you decided on the size of the print, Josh? Such a cool image. As a print, it would look great at the size of Thunder, 32 x 24.

I am looking to release this in the 18"X24" format. The larger size was a consideration but I wanted to make this release a little easier on collectors in terms of price, shipping, framing cost, and wall space. It is also a size that works well with the imagery and in my opinion, showcases the detail very well. I would like to do another 32"x24" in the future, and am sure there will be an painting/image soon, that will be well suited for that larger paper size.
