This was one I decided a while back that I wanted to commission. Here is the original book that I sent to Ash Gonzales.
We had several discussions about what I would like to have done to this book, placement, etc and I sent the book to him to work on. The full process took roughly a year. I recieved several messages with updates and pictures throughout the process. Here are some of those.
It made it to CGC and actually went through the grading really quick. ( my only issue is that somewhere it picked up a couple "pressable defects "
which I think is just CGC trying to force CCS increase, but with this being oil paint on a glossy cover I didn't want to chance it lifting any of the beautiful artwork off.)
Still I am extremely happy to have this one back with any major QC issues. Without further ado here is the final result. Note that this looks even better in hand and that I could not get the scanner glare to go away.
