I was on pins & needles until the auction ended & so happy to get a chance to purchase the only AFI-related art he had (the band owns all the rest that survived, Forbes unfortunately lost some of the preliminaries in several moves). I've been a big fan of his work for years now & have a number of his limited silkscreen prints & one of his portfolios (plus a tattoo based on his flaming rose painting) but this is the first original in my collection.
So now I can relax :) Can't wait to receive it & I'll have to find a nice frame!!
He's also got a website up now www.alanforbes.org
