It's a really nice piece, one of my favourites.
Pretty low run for a Mondo, and only sold at the opening night of their gallery (hence the pricetag)
Tons more little flourishes of detail than in the jpeg.
Crisp and minimal, i can't fault it if you can get it for a good price.

SilenceTV was supposed to release a few more pieces, but the project hasn't materialised in the last two years.

thanks for the info Otomo. I figured you'd provide some help and insight :pint: I'm embarrassed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to watch the film! but the speculation is killing me. I think this weekend might be the time.

Yup, laser etched.

I think this is the dropsite, it seems to be where he sells his stuff:

http://www.spacewolflimited.com/

Looking at the prices, it seems likely it'll be $200.
I like it, but considering a very significant portion of the image is almost a direct trace of Otomo's artwork I think it's a bit of a bum deal. :?
I can't place the mutant Tetsuo-baby to a specific pre-existing panel/painting off the top of my head, but it looks pretty familiar to me......

I know that pop culture art plays fast and loose with the rules on using other peoples intellectual property, but making a swift 10k off the back of lasering a trace job is way too unethical for my tastes. :?

At that price and lack of originality, I'm out.
