Feel free to disagree, but at least cite some examples.

I'm sorry.

Love the art to the Gorge prints, haven't actually seen one, so I guess I can't comment on quality.

Like everything about the Alpines.

And to go back to 03, the Hamptons are very nice.  Coventry is a decent print, and good quality.

But... my opinions (which I guess I have to cite) are probably just wrong.

I like the Alpine 09s but they are very thin

I would agree with you, Will.  I have one of the 03 Hamptons hanging in my house.

The '03's Hampton's are Sick, Sick, SICK!  I don't care what espresso beans says.

I also liked the Alpine's too...but I didn't think they were incredible or anything.  Also, "jump the shark" is kind of a misnomer, because in order for Pollock to have "jumped the shark" he would have to keep getting outlandish and ridiculous and gimmicky until his gimmicks got out of control and no longer made sense...

Opinions on art can't really be wrong, I just heartily disagree.

I had the Hampton 03 Eye for a while, the printing was just not sharp enough for me to hang/display it.  People love those prints, again, just not for me.

Once you own a hand pressed 99/00 Pollock it's hard to look at the linocut prints without a little skepticism.

I will agree with this 110 percent.  My dissapointment with the 03 Hampton prints was also their lack of hand printing.  They looked sharp with all the colors and stuff, but part of the "cool factor" to me in getting my 1999/2000 Pollock's was the fact that they were hand made, hand printed by Pollock, and this was evident in everything having to do with the print.  The mono/bi or tri-chrome characteristics, the printing imperfections, the obvious tell tale signs of being made by hand.  The 2.0 and 3.0 pollock's that I've seen don't contain these same characteristics at all, which makes them way less cool, imo, than the 1.0 Pollock's.

So can we get the Jumping the Shark analogy back?

He's doing 3D prints and not hand printing his work...
