I like it, though it might have been cooler as two separate prints...?

you can always cut them up into two or five different prints

I don't really like it as one print.....but I do like each individual scene.

It's a shame, because it is some nice work, but I will pass on this one. Dan is really hit or miss with me.....there usually is no in between. That's why I can't convince myself to get the sub........oh well, here's hoping the october print is not a dinosaur.

Year of the snake, here is how I see it :

the snake is sneaky, it infiltrates. I think this print is Dan looking back at this year and saying thanks to everyone it was a breakthrough year, the underdog infiltrated the big league you know....

And that is why I totally disagree with the 2 scheme in the print being separated cause if they are, there is no more message left in this print.
The first plane pics are to show the year that went by, a succesful one so maybe he was really more on the go this year, you know, going back and forth on the plane to attend events maybe, I don't know... and he finishes his art print with what would likely be home sweet home for him, like in the end, looking back at it...

I may very well be wrong, just my interpretation...

You tell me what you think..
