That pose looks very awkward. It looks like her head is huge compared to her body, or she has the smallest collarbones ever.
Yea... Polio, maybe? 🤔 Definitely seems off.
It’s not. Like with many of his female images there are subtle depth/perspective cues.
just a foil for me today, thanks

Have to agree with Fredo. I don’t see any issue, in fact I think it’s a wonderful composition, one that I’m gonna have to track down.

new panels are $1000. archived ones varied and I think they are all sold now...it was only the ones up on the wall-papered wall....which makes the display really pop. all taken in at once, the greens play tricks on your eyes as they flow from the wall onto the panels.
"dreamer" the new paper print above and the new panels go on sale this Saturday, apparently when the fair opens. im sure there will be people in line but I don't think its going to be as crazy as years past. although the Hebe (Gary Clark Jr Art Print) is GORGEOUS and makes me really want my GCJ print back....iso again.

as always, Chuck was super nice. always great to chat and catch up with him. I wish more artists would come down for all the Basel fun!
New panels go on sale Saturday as well, correct?

yes, I believe the new panels go on sale at the same time as "Dreamer" they are the art print versions of the Gary Clark Jr poster and one of the recent DMB posters. "Hebe" is the name of the GCJ art print and I think its freaking gorgeous. Im totally after a GCJ print now....again. :roll:

I’m not sure any variants made it out of the show. I missed the black by four people or so. It was a real stunner. Happy with the Lava Foil though.

Sparkle Foil variant was available at the drop but only for a blink. Lost it before completing the purchase.

John Prine, Paradiso, Amsterdam 2020
17.75 x 35
Edition of 125
5 colors on cream paper
Signed and Numbered

John Prine winner of the 2020 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, is known for humorous lyrics about love, life, and current events, as well as serious songs with social commentary. Prine will bring his country sound and folk revival lyricism to rowdy Amsterdam. I’m celebrating his concert at the legendary Paradiso with a poster tip-o-the-hat to the Roaring Twenties.

I will make a very limited release of this poster – and its variants – on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at a random time.
