Why? Overpriced ugly IMO . So many others images to choose from.

Wow, another police related pig image. This guy really knows how to beat a dead horse. Hey, could that be his next image?

I'm a big fan of Dolks work, have been for years and was hoping for another great print realising that a new one was on its way. PIGMASK isn't his best. If I'm honest PIG is better and cheaper. For those who are going to buy one, I hope the packaging is better than last time, my TOY was battered (but replaced by HMP)

Could not agree more. Huge Dolk fan but hate this and Officer Down. Pig is actually really damn good tho which is funny since it's still available not to mention damn cheap for Dolk standards.

Hate officer down? That´s strong. It might be overselling with the typo, but its still a quality image and funny as fudge.

On the other hand, you can keep your opinion uninterupted on this one.
Actually like it a bit, but looks unfinished

To each his own. Hate may have been too strong but no question it's my least favorite Dolk print, and by quite a large margin. To me Pig is a bit deeper in the fact that it's not just blatantly calling a cop a pig like Officer Down is. It almost portrays a bit of compassion by the cop the way he's holding the pig. But that's just how I see it.

So they are. I'll give the main edition an hour before they sell out. The £875s will still be there next week ;)

Leaving aside whether or not the image is any good, HMP have made a big error on the pricing here.

£150 & £250 would have been much more realistic.

If you look through all the Dolk releases, some are just classic images and others are so boring. Weird he can differ so much in quality

Just woke up to see that this was already available. How long has this print been up? HMP really messed up the pricing on this one.

Not impressed, the dialog, if that's the aim beyond simply money, need be more substantive than this.
