December 2009 - John Fluevog Shoes
For the first time ever, John is releasing limited edition, signed and numbered prints of two original paintings into the world. And in the name of Fluevocracy, John is asking Fluevogers the world over to collectively set the price.
Since the beginning of time, John's creative process has always started with a sketch in his sketchbook, followed by a more elaborate second drawing which is sent off to the factory to be sampled. In anticipation of his 40th year in business, John Fluevog has produced 40 limited edition prints of two conceptual paintings, signed and numbered by the man himself. These are museum ready prints on archival watercolour paper, produced by our favourite Chicago-based, old world printing company.
WE WANT YOUR INPUT ON OUR OUTPUT: John is releasing Limited Edition signed & numbered prints for the first time, and he has asked Fluevogers to collectively choose the price, handing over complete responsibility to the public. Fluevogers were asked to enter the price they thought a single print should be, and John lined them up from top to bottom and took the middle/median number as the price. After thousands of people entered their suggestions, the median price came out at $100. These will be available to the world by mid-December.
