That Moss Jungle Book is gorgeous. Can't think of any scenario where I'll end up with one, its resale is going to start high and just keep climbing :(

First Obey drop. +1 for battleroyale. Tough going though. That site is a peace of fudge.

Just thought I'd say hello, as I've been a long term lurker, non-existent poster and whatnot. This whole print scene is somewhat intimidating for a newbie, but I'll see how I go.

Took my first plunge the other day and bought the Whalen 'Hector Salamanca' print from one of our own on here. My hope against hope is that I can pick up a couple more Whalen prints (especially in love with his upcoming Aladdin one), so that I can hang a set in my home. Anyone know of what the likelihood/chances/best ways to get hold of some of Disney prints might be for a newbie, other than just waiting for resales?

All the best,

Hope you enjoy your stay here.
Enjoy what you like collecting, what gives you pleasure. No one print genre has any greater merit than another… despite what you might hear elsewhere. :)

Anyone going for the Bernie Wrightson from Nakatomi (presumably quite soon)? The variant is blooming' lovely looking.

Anyone want to PB for me at the Flood Gallery? Godmachine just released a Goblin Gig poster and I needs it. What I don't need is the drymounting flood gallery gorilla gripping and bending the print before they ship it to me.

I'll happily pay for your service and freight etc.

Let me know.
Won't be in a position to sell for a few months. Not likely before end of May 2014 please don't pm and ask.

so I had my Dad build me a mini flatfile for my birthday - not bad for a bloke well into his 70s :)

turned out really well and small enough to slide under my bed - very low quality ipod pics incoming - will take some proper ones in due course :) need to get some stickers or something to decorate it - all solid wood/ply wood - no mdf nastiness.

Cool, flat file twins! I used twin ball latches to hold the lid down. I was originally going to do all varnish, but I ran out of what was left in my shed, so moved to gloss to seal the inside. I then lined with felt
