The listing was merged with the OG, as it should be.

Even though the editions have merged, the picture remains that of the OG edition.

I wish the sky detail had shown up on the print the same way it is on the original. Still can't believe this isn't sold out....

They'll sold out eventually... I'd be surprised he can sell out a 100 run print in a few hours and having difficulties selling a 200 print run... sounds weird to me. He probably scared off a couple of flippers in the process so that might explain the time frame. Can't be that much left unless flippers were the only one buying his stuff... one of his best imo.. it also makes sense to me he chose to do it on one of his best design.. He was probably pretty confident too on its general appeal to the public.

his prints don't get more than what he sells them for. there is no profit for short flippers for this artist.

I'm not a big Hecox connoisseur...but surfin' through his portfolio I found averages generally around twice the original price...Last Day On Earth, Mexico City, El Poder de Hacer and Trees to name a few all seem to have been flipped for some profit...but you're probably right it may stay pretty minimal after shipping fees and everything... DAMN!! I won't make money off of this one :lol: kidding of course.. I'm sure it will be a keeper..

Anyone knows why El Poder de Hacer was more pricey at $175 ??? Anything special about this print??

Edit** Bigger at 25x19 than most other at 16x20...

Tranito - As mentioned, I think size was part of it. It also has a pretty large color pallet for a Hecox piece, and from my experience the quality of BlkMrkt's work is superior to that of Arkitip's. Obviously, personal opinion on the last point.

thx for the info... I was not aware the manufacturer could differ.. thought they were all through Arkitip...

Also there are 7 colors on El Poder de Hacer, didn't know neither... I thought 5 was his most with Mire Dentro...

This piece has now sold out. Honestly, I'm surprised this print took that long. Its a hell of piece, and at 200 it took nearly as long as it takes McCarthy to sell out an edition of 550.
