Really, no comments on this. I love it. I think this is my favorite gig poster by Soto yet. (Still prefer his art though) Glad I was able to score a reg, though I tried and failed on the lime green variant. I am surprised there are not comments yet seeing as it sold out in seconds. Once again, great job Jeff.

First time I have ever seen this. Was there an email? I just realized that I haven't gotten a Soto email since mid-November.
Nice looking poster, whatever the case. I really like the style of his lettering on this one.

Unfortunately I got shut out on the drop today.....stupid smartphone + fat fingers = paypal login fail.

If anyone got one and has buyers remorse we should chat 8)

I love it too. It grew on me after watching the process video he put out for it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ_w4O4SiKs
Been lovin' Soto lately.

EDIT: I hadn't commented yet because this didn't even make it up here until after it had sold out...

I loved this at first glance. The type and the colors REALLY grab me, but after looking at it for a while I started to get transfixed by how wide apart her eyes are. It just looks unnatural. The funny thing is if you watch the process video, her eyes were much closer together on the rough draft. I'm not sure why he chose to move them further out for the final rendering but it made the whole thing a no-go for me. Shame I couldn't get past that, as otherwise I think it's a brilliant poster.

Lucked out on this one. Saw the video someone posted on the process and they just happened to be going on sale that day. Nabbed a purple one. Excited to see how this looks in person.

This is one of my favorite gig posters that I have bought in some time. I got the Jaune (show) edition. I like the peachy color against the green color the best of the 3, and luckily for me it was probably the easiest to get. The typography, type, illustration, design and colors (of all 3 editions ), make this a great poster. I'm going to nominate it for art of the week right now. Great job Mr. Soto! :notworthy:

I got this today (purple edition). It reeks of ink and is absolutely gorgeous. Incredible job by the printers and Jeff.

Love the band, love the print. There's so much detail in there. I'm actually on buying hiatus right now, but I might make an exception for this if it can still be found on ebay. Now the question is: purple or green?

I got the standard yellow edition and it is now my favorite of Soto's gig posters by a mile. A must see in person.
