  1. Thursday= October 16 not 17

  2. Yeah, it’s early Friday morning in the USA, not tomorrow.

  3. Wait, MegaFauna said “(Announce=2008/Oct/16th (Thursday),20:57 japan time zone)”

  4. I cant believe its well over 500 dollars. I hope they yen goes down in the next day.

  5. I believe Admin is correct. It’s like 8:55 p.m. on Thursday, Tokyo time and 7:55 a.m. on Thursday, EST

  6. Sorry, make that 7:57 a.m. EST

  7. yeah seems like a bit of a rip for a smaller version that doesn’t really look any better, but hey whateva. i guess since it’s not sold out yet somebody will buy it……………

  8. But I will be asleep during that time. Is there anything I can do?

  9. Are people really gonna fight over spending $580 on these?

  10. Crazy crazy – Put it in perspective – It a print on some weird feeling paper and it ain’t all that anyway.

    This is a personal reality check for me, $580 on a print when a family could live on that in some hungry continent for like 3 years.

    I hope it does not sell but kne it will, I also know at som point somone will make some profit on it and I think its wrong.

  12. Why would you hope it doesn’t sell?

  13. Because if you take a reality check then stand back it and fit it into the scheme of he world, it should be wrong.

    Sorry to sound like a old hippy but 52% of the world lives on less than $2 bucks a day. When you travel to say India or Nepal, Namibia or south Africa you get a sense of the injustice.

    Luckily we can sit back and say, well an Indian does want a Horkney on their tin wall anyway so leave us alone to bid what we want – but we are all interconnected, be it with pollution or global warming and when you return from the travels and see the price 1 Horkney print obtains in Japan you hope for mans sake it does not sell and we sit back and say $580 is a hell of allot when 52% of the world has less than $2 a day to live on.

    But as I said – someone will buy it and then make yet more cash and we can turn away and dismiss the 48% of the world as its no concern of ours and what can we do.

  14. I really can’t argue that artists shouldn’t be commanding good coin for their work. There are alot less talented people that make alot more money.

  15. Agreed – Look at Bush

  16. Like Paris Hilton:)

  17. Now leave Paris out of this !
    She’s OK in my world and can do allot to take my mind off world hunger :)

  18. Sorry Sacha, I know she’s pretty hot, but let’s be honest; she is filthy and disgustingly rich and about as talented as a stick

  19. That’s an insult to the around the world

  20. That’s an insult to STICKS the around the world

  21. B’Jesus I can’t type ! – I meant to type …..

    “that’s an insult to sticks around the world”

  22. SACHA, what are you even doing on this site if you feel that way about the purchasing of expensive art prints? Also, spell check: make friends with it.

    So your spending $580 on this print – and your not worried about the price.
    Cool. Your choice.

    I have a right to be on this site and also have a right to say I think its to expensive. I think its a valid point when the price is $580.

    Spell check is not my friend but advice taken.

  24. Admittedly expensive, but completely Horkeylicious! This is only going to be sought after by the true hardcore Horkey fans that can afford and stomach the price tag. Like with any art print, the rarer the piece, the higher the price tag. Given the low edition and the secondary market values of most of Aaron’s prints, the price is somewhat justified. I think it also has to do with the fact that Japanese goods are pretty expensive on average, especially when it comes to “imported” items. Look at the prices some of those crazy vinyl figures fetch. There is a lot of money in Japan and the young folks are willing to fork it over for a piece of popular culture. Mega Fauna has received a lot of inquiries and interest with respect to this piece, and that is going to contribute to the high price tag as well. The thing I like about this print is that it is about as close as you can get to a relatively affordable piece of Horkey line art. The simple black on white really highlights the insane detail and to hardcore Horkey fans, it is going to be worth every penny.

  25. it is a wonderful piece of art with a very subtle colouring and some great individual work on each print done by mister horkey himself.

    as for the other theme discussed here, i find it insanely amusing that someone gets offended by an artist selling 60 prints at 580 USD when gazillions of dollars are spent on war and the space program. if you pump that into the third world suffering would end within days. but nah, it is more offending that someboddy that works hard for a living gets paid for his unique work, right? ;)

  26. white guilt is amazing.

  27. Personally–I think the detail in this print is great and amazing. The image itself is pretty bland. Many other Horkey’s I find vastly more intersting than looking through a microscope at a dead bird and shrubbery.

    $580 aside, I don’t think I would buy this print for $40.

  28. cmon guys its time for a reality check LOL
