Spagucci-You ca jump off of it via that huge wide jaw she has.
I love Kate & Madonna. I had the Kate print, couldn't get over how distorted the bottom half of her face looked.
Want to thank the EBeaner who hooked me up with a trade. Well, shall we say...the Ebeaner that I really hooked up!

They are not going to pay crazy flip prices for this. Thats a pair of Prada or Gucci shoes to them.
same argument could be made for:

Haven't you noticed, they are in this thread talkin' about how they cant believe its not fetching more money right now. Or Or they think it's going to be major bucks once the 'gays' hear about it.

Which makes me think you Geddes fans are insane for spending that kind of cash on a giclee.
Just back and forth, one eb member to another eb member.
Seriously, crazy behavior.

i'm not disagreeing with you, it's crazy.

all i'm saying is that not all people are as rational. people still make crazy decisions all the time

Madonna fans don't give a drymount about Prints that is how it's different
they just want Madonna's face on what ever so they won't be paying this much for a madonna print that they don't even know how to frame and this image started as a cover not the other way around although am not sure with the red cosmo which came first

They don't want it on their wall, they want to ca$h in on the flip.

...and Wawaad, I hear you about the spiders! When we were in AUS, Palm Cove, I almost ran into a web that was over 15 feet wide, the spider on that thing still haunts me.
Exactly

they are forgetting it's 35"X35" that's a monster, it's like living with Madonna, so no not many want that. and the fans now are more worried about getting tickets to the tour, to whoever up there was wondering why won't they care about this. and as otto mentioned because you can also get the cover for $10 and put it in a cover frame from urban outfitters for $20

as gay as I am and as Madonna fan as I am. I still can't believe I will hang this on the wall if i get one

and otto about the spiders it all ended for us when a spider came running out from the salad bowl of (my husband in Canada, defacto partner in Australia and boy friend in the states)
People are also forgetting one other thing with the size.

You are looking at these lines on the print as a thumbnail image down small which forms the face in the print.

This just will not work up close like that in real life, it will be paper with lots of lines down it until you stand 30 feet away.

Its the most ridiculous size for this style of art. Should have been half that at least.


This print is just a warm up for the biggie. It seems the image rights have just expired which is why it is released only now.

Clever marketing though as no one will touch this print once the main cover gets released.

lol 30 ft away? ^ try standing 5 ft away and bluring your eyes. i also don't think the idea of these images is for the viewer to see the image right away anyways. it's sort of like a magic eye. the bigger the better imo.

im sorry but im sure if the artist wanted you to see her face then it would just be a print of her face and not a bunch of lines. but its probably a good thing you didnt buy this print :) have fun knocking on it though.

So your happy spending $250 on a print with just lines on?
Of course he wants you to see the face. Shame the nose is missing.

Lets hope the main cover print is done properly.
