I like the print.... but there's something about the exclusivity of this item (and don't start me on VIP gig tickets for stupid prices) that is at odds with what rock and roll was supposed to be about in the first place.
Is the point of owning this print to enjoy the art... or to revel in the bragging rights that you're the only (overpaid) kid on the block who owns one??
I'd be delighted with a simple poster of it for £25.
There's an edition of 200, so you would not feel so all alone being the only kid on the block who owns one.
That said, while I do like the retro/cartoonish image of the print, I'd settle for a decent quality poster of it also for about $20.00 max.
The limited print seems a bit pricey imo, no matter that it's hand signed/numbered, framed, matted, limited to 200, etc., etc., etc.
Never heard of Josh Agle aka "Shag" until now, but evidently he's made quite a name for himself with his retro themed work.
