When it comes to Mike's work, when I first started collecting, I thought the whole portrait idea was stupid...or at least I didn't get it. But the fat birds were kind of cool, so I bought around 6 common to slightly uncommon ones and hung them up. Wife like them so that's a plus.

But then the portrait idea clicked a little with me, but I promised myself to never buy ONE, because with my addictive behavior, buying the first would lead down a very expensive rabbit hole. Still keeping my word even though it's pretty damn difficult lol

Hey Mike, go choke on a bag of dicks.
curious what the message you got was?...

I'm pretty sure Mike was far too busy this weekend to be blocking people, seems like a bigcartel thing. In fact, I don't think store owners have that level of control on their sites.

Struck out all weekend.

No Tufted Titmouse with Fat Birds release.
Too slow for the Boxo I (goldens) drop, and the subsequent cancellations restock.
No DikDik with Fat Kingdom drop.
Too slow for Current Mood #3
Too slow for Coal for Everyone!
$100 was too rich for a Sickle (assuming I wasn't too slow)

boo friggedy hoo

I'm usually pretty good on drops, but guessing there were only a handful of each.

I love the fat birds and have a chunk of them but there were some insane prices for a pretty basic 8" x 10"

Did you pick up the Flycatcher before or after the price bump?

The fudge I grabbed was $50 and $60. I did see a portrait or two that were like $1150. I didn't check the birds drop.

Yep.

Mr. Pink portrait was $600; Riply and Bowie and Tyrion all around 1100-1200

Most of the Marvel Portraits were 75-125; Puck and Kraven were $20 each though.

SW portraits were all over the place, but Emperor the most at $475 maybe?
