He draws weird and wonderful requests from people using only miscrosoft paint.
I have seen it before though you might have thought he would want to rebrand it :?

I always think that when I see these driving around town: http://www.modernmix.co.uk/

But then again it gets people talking about them so maybe it's not such a bad idea to keep the name.

I have a feeling that nabbing one of those Nicolas Delort prints is going to be quite difficult :/

I'm hoping international shipping costs will put off some of the flipper brigade.

Hey all,

I've recently moved to London and I'm wondering if anyone here knows of any reputable framers they can recommend please? It's not like there's a shortage here, they seem to be on most streets, like hair dressers, the quality of which is concerning.

Find a framer that meets Fine Art Trade Guild standards.

Use their website http://www.fineart.co.uk/

And use the 'find a member near you' search box (london / framer) should help you

frustrating print collecting day - thought I had tracked down a major ISO at a good price on ebay but after I paid I got a refund 15 minutes later as there had apparently been a water leak that had damaged the print (which I assume means they got a higher offer from someone else but you never know for certain) - ah well back to the drawing board.

just amazing how many print collectors seem to suffer from poor quality pipework :P

edit: ebay is a funny place though for the prices people think that they may get for their prints - one guy in the UK is looking to sell a Moss papercut from TB for £250 and its been relisted many, many times without being sold, but then someone in the US is trying to sell the same one for over £1,600!! its like - the other one isn't selling for about 15% of what you are asking, do you not think the price may be a little high? no?

Hmm, eBay's a funny place.

Not sure about reelcinemascreenprints' strategy of flipping prints with a large BIN price to catch out those unaware of the going prices. I guess flipper will always be flippers.
