    I gotta dork out a minute and post this — it’s just so bad-ass looking. It’s a print that Dave Dorman (http://www.davedorman.com) did for Celebration IV a couple of years ago. The print was limited to 250 copies.

    When I met Dave at the SW Fan Days thingie about 8 months back, I told him how much I loved his work, especially this. He said that he was selling off his artist proof prints of many of the printwork he had done. George Lucas himself enjoyed Dave’s work so much that much of his work can be seen hanging at Skywalker Ranch.

    An artist proof, if you aren’t privy, are the proofs that the printer sends to the artist before full production to make sure that the colors are correct, framing is correct — basically so the artist can make sure that it looks the way it’s supposed to.

    In this case, Dave had a few copies of each of his artist proofs that he’s made available to buyers, simply because these are hard times, and he hasn’t had much work. I paid $150 for the print, and almost $200 to have it framed. I had them use museum quality glass, so there’s almost no reflection off of the glass, and it’s supposed to preserve the print underneath.

    So basically, I’m excited as shit to see the thing on my wall after all this time. Below is a shot of it framed and hung on the wall and a closeup detail of the print.

    That’s super-cool to see man, especially after hearing you talk about it on one of your solo mini-shows.

    dude…

    that. is. awesome.

    and props on using the museum glass. just be careful if george lucas is ever at your house. you go to the kitchen to get him a glass of blue buttermilk and come back to see him holding a sharpie trying to bring the print in line with his “original vision.”

    My essence still senses Bucho's women.

    That’s very nice. Do you have the close up picture? Dave was really nice and down to earth, wasn’t he?

    I like titties.
