i like nature, and birds are a fascinating bunch. especially how much their behavior and nesting can range widely. these illustrations are fat and cute, which rules.

but it's also a nice change of pace from gigposters, movie posters, video game, and pop-culture themed art, which is running wild. try buying some cool affordable prints that don't fall in those categories that are well done...also their size makes them really easy to frame and collect.

At least that's a great one. Some of them are kind of silly.

Yeah. I wasn't a fan but this was a gift.

I'd like him to do one with Pinhead holding a rubics cube!

Packaging from Static Medium for the Blue Jay was astounding. Definitely worth the $8.

Picked up an Edward pretty easily, really like the higher edition sizes, makes it easier to get them.

Missed grabbing a Bluejay, if anyone grabbed an extra and want to help out with me adding this to the other birds, let me know.

EDIT: Had a few people get a hold of me, and I appreciate it, but I am looking for one if you have an extra and if you are not wanting 3x cost on an open edition print, with an edition of more than 250, and is unsigned. :pint:

Was there ever an AP drop of Kitties (Jabba)? Don't know if I completely missed it in the past few months, and apologies if this has been addressed.

Not yet. So far, none of the SDCC JLUs have been officially dropped online, to my knowledge.
