One of the first things I look at is the back cover. Wow!
With Boyce' s money and the artisans who work for him, what did you expect. Boyce "owns" the back cover of the SCI magazine and has for years now.
Saw that at Dallas, it is HUGE! The head of the male on top is at about 14 ft. Just to give perspective. It's a pretty cool piece of work.
George, years ago, I called the magazine to advertise. I asked how much it cost to be on the back cover (10 years ago) yikes!
I can't imagine what he's paying for it now
But, his pieces always have the "Wow" factor.
Great artist, talented staff working for him. Not too shabby of a businessman either
I heard the back cover ad was like 8k or something crazy!!!
Wonder what that guys trophy room looks like?
Lord forgive me, for I am not worthy.
I had the extreme privilege to work there for a spell. What I learned from Mike and his crew didn't just take me to the next level, I believe I skipped a few levels on the way up. Someone should list the names of those who have worked there as a testimonial.
Ken, you know you're right. Almost to a person, everyone who's worked there is an artisan who thinks "outside the box". I don't think they all arrived there that way but I know when they left they were. I've had the extreme fortune of being around you and several of your "alumni" and I'm amazed at the abilities all of you possess. Mike is probably one of the icons of this industry, not particularly from his own talent, but from his entrepenural methods and getting the best out of the best. Certainly a candidate for a Pioneer Award and a Hall of Fame entrant.
I agree wholeheartedly, my friend.
I truly believe that Mike Boyce/AA paying for advertising on that back page has helped ME and all of us with OUR customers, too. He certainly gets his returns from his advertisment, but I know I benefit from it from that exposure. Thanks Mike, I mean this most respectfully and sincerely.
Shops and advertising like AA's have helped all taxidermists. They have raised the respect of taxidermy in the eyes of the general public and helped every taxidermist with their eyes open to charge more for their own work.
I'd like to know the price tag on that job. When you deal with him if you have to ask ,you can't afford him
Very nice work of art. Looking at his price list, that is about a $35k project .
Anyone who could afford to shoot that many lions and has a room large enough to hold them doesn't CARE how much it costs.
George, You ain't lying! Heck I would be happy with just one.
I'd be happy with the room big enough to hold them in.....Lol
They charge for custom extras. The prices on their price list are base prices. That mount is likely 50+.
