So, if anyone can help me out, please let me know.
Please.

If someone can get me this for cost, I'll give you my Dran Learning to Fly print for free! As well as the cost+shipping of the MBW.
Any luck Otto?
I am hooking Otto up, so long as I don't get refunded. :pint:
Nice! Glad to see EBeaners hooking each other up.

If anything, Otto is the one hookin it up. That Dran print is worth close to $400

he could also have released this print with the same run, same price, sold it out in seconds as is likely to happen and kept all the money for himself. why always look for the negative?
I never said it wasn't a nice gesture. But when you have the hype power that MBW has and the power to generate far more than $25k even with say a 10 minute time limited release why not take that route? So he sold 100 at 250 in about 30 seconds. Imagine if it was 800 or 1000 at $100 or $150.

Do you realize how long it would take to do 800 prints? And materials alone would cost over $2000.

I want to thank all who were willing to help me out!
I'm set.
I want to encourage any of you that are going to flip this, please donate atleast 25% to a charity.
(How about to one here in the US.)

Kudos to MBW camp for giving $25k to charity!
Great way to fundraise!

so approximately 25% of these are on the bay already and only 2 are donating to charity. People disgust me. Sleep well donkeys, glad you are into this wonderful hobby for the right reasons. Probably the same folks that complain about MBW stealing other peoples art. Guess he isnt the only one who works hard at not workin. Glad I got one as long as there are no refunds

They still donated $250 to charity, which is a lot more than most other people have.

True dat! Most people bitching probably haven't given a dime! I tried to give 250 but paypal said sold out after I hit pay now :evil: would have hooked up Otto for the dran learning to fly :(

Leaving aside the debate about flipping, the purchasers did not donate $250 to charity. Each person paid $250 for a print (whose value at present exceeds that amount), and the artist gave the money to charity of his own accord. Do you think all of the people who bought this would have given the $250 without receiving a print in return? Likewise, many (most? all?) of the people who bought the print probably would have bought it even if it wasn't a fundraiser. Regardless, the buyers paid market value for an in-demand print, which hardly constitutes giving money to charity. Either way, I wouldn't plan on deducting the $250 on next year's taxes.

If you want to make a small (or large, I'll leave it up to you) donation to the Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund go to this link:

http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtopi ... 10&t=64849

Plus you get this tribute to MBW/Rockwell snub nose type print. $20 will get you the print. And 100% of your donation will go to the Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund. I'll even pay the for mailing of print. Granted it's not a fancy screen print. But it is on incredibly fancy paper. In fact the paper is left over from a print job I did in 1984 for Alice Neel (yes I kept the paper that long because it's that good). And I was really young when I did the print.....I'm not that old.

We as a community have the opportunity to make a difference. Every little bit that we contribute makes a difference. There are only 15 of theses babies left so act fast.

I do believe the MBW hype-machine could have done alot better than this but hey, everything helps and something is better than nothing.


Sandra Bullock could make a nice MBW pop-art subject...
