Nice Wizard of Oz print. I prefer the sepia of the variant and the bluer green skies of the regular. I think both work great though, well done Mr. Tong.

The variant is more authentic to me. I live in Kansas and have dodged my fair share of twisters over the years, and dont remember looking out at blue skys, but that sky may be interpreted over OZ, so yea both are great! Variant wins out for me. This is now the Wizard of Oz "print to own". Great stuff Mr. Tong! Looking forward to rest of show!

Definitely my favourite of the reveal so far and think I can finally say I too prefer the variant on this one. The sunset orange/red sky and the sepia look really great. Just really looking forward to some close up pics of the black and white scenes as the detail on some of the houses and people look great too! (also nice touch with the ruby slippers)

As for comparing this to other Oz prints I think it's a much cleaner, classic image than either the Whalen or the Erwin IMO, with the contrasting colour and black and white really pulling the whole print together. Comparing it to the LD, which I really like, I must say that I prefer the lettering on this in one. Also the fact that the LD was for the book kind of annoyed me....

So in conclusion probably my favourite OZ print to date...

My favorite of the reveal thus far as well. I think I'm feeling the variant a little more, but would love either in my collection. Looking forward to hopefully seeing this one in person.
