Came in the mail today, my oversized baby:

Yes, the surface in the upper right corner is not perfect, but it's hardly visible in normal light.

An important part of my brag is that I paid 4 (FOUR) euros for it. :dance:

Not the sexiest pieces of original art from the Gathering series but hey, I'm not complaining.
Working on something really cool and will post images here when we finalize the deal!

Gratz Len. Awesome pickups. I have an idea what your "something really cool" is, but I won't spoil it. ;)

The highlights from the GP Malmo have arrived...Thanks to Hermann and Andy to get me these (and the rest of Dave Allsop's cards) signed...

It's not original art but getting cards signed by an artist considered very rare is nice too :-D

Those Alpha cards look really clean! Guy matted them without frames?

I love the early art but had issues with the size of finished product in the past- I think I found a solution, for me at least:
http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm92 ... G_0338.jpg
I'm still working on it- was maybe going to subdue the white on the interior of the borders of the matte but then I like it more than when I framed it- Also thinking about giving it a plate, "Artifact construction requires immense resources." type of deal-
I like working on projects like this but rarely hang onto them for too long. This one is turning out nice though... unsure it's going to be possible to do again with a land set like this as well :-\

Man, those Urza pics are AMAZING. What else do you have for Magic art?
