I'm not finding this a strong image. And $300 bones? there are better horkeys for less.

this.

It's still an amazing piece, but I'd prefer a reg ed Detritus if i'm gonna fork over loot. IMO. :pint:

Im thinking this is one of his best IMO, and worth the cash.. Time, gallery cause etc..

Im all for dark pieces though, so I may be a bit biased, but that rhino and bird.. and the red balances it perfectly. Very dark though. So smiles all round for me.

I'm liking it just cause it does not have words, or some obscure artist, band, or singer that I have never heard of, just wanted to own a Horkey.

the detail in this is silly good. i bet this is a show stopper in person.

Nice work Horkey.

Wonder how long this took to illustrate.

Love this and what it stands for. Chances are slim to own this though. :hanging:

i like the bird, i like the rhino... but the border, all that black fill, the red whatever... it just looks like so much filler. I would sooner buy it for $300 if it was just a black outline print on white fancy pants paper.

I think you are going to get non-Horkey fans who are going to buy it because it strikes them in person and/or to support the cause, plus there will invariably be people there to whom $300 is a veritable drop in the bucket.

Exactly. When you get all these LA people coming out to a BENEFIT show, and this being one of the least expensive pieces available to purchase at the show (not to mention looking insanely cool), I think you'll see a lot of non-horkey collector sales. That is assuming that they don't all get sold to flippers and PB's waiting in line before the doors even open.
