Agreed. James seems to always be looking for ways to advance his craft, something I greatly appreciate. And as far as the image itself, I'm much more into this than the last handful of releases, so it's an easy decision for me as well. Though, coming right on the heels of the Phlegm release, I'm spending more than I'd like, in the first month of a year I'm supposed to be concentrating on framing. haha XD
So it goes...

Absolutely - thoughtful printing can make a good image into a great print. I think the printing process is just as important as the art itself. Matthew Peak's Halloween is a perfect example of this.

As far as the money is concerned, just pretend you missed the drop and that you're getting it for a really good deal of $200 + SH :D

I've seen people on FB complaining/shocked at the $200 price tag, but would easily pay aftermarket prices that high for all sorts of crap.

You can frame everything once the bubble bursts. For now: Spend! Spend! Spend!

Wouldn't it make more sense to spend after, when everything's under cost? :lol:

$20 isn't bad for shipping flat for that sized print actually. Can't wait to see this in person.

Yeah with it being flat I was a little worried about what the shipping was going to look like. Stoked that it was only $20!

Has any one received a print of this size flat before? Did it survive?

With my experience with the USPS, this makes me very nervous. Hopefully the prints will be insured.

He knows how to ship - especially flat. Don't worry about it.
