  1. Well, I have a Paypal receipt (I only had to reload the order page for about an hour), but I won’t believe it ’till I see the brown mailing tube on my doorstep. I swore I’d never try to buy another of his posters but I saw this one and couldn’t resist…

  2. I think its genius that he was able to create a demand for his prints in his early career by partially releasing and a limited edition then artifically creating demand by buying his own prints off ebay. When people saw they could make money off his prints, his prints became sought after. Very smart marketing.

  3. one of his best this year –

  5. Isaac – He ain’t Warhol.
    Warhol was a film maker, print maker, painter invented the “15 minutes of fame”, spear headed a brand new movement called Pop Art, record producer with the Velvet Underground and author.

    Shepard makes golden monk prints of 450 a run.

  6. @Moog-

    Dude you need to open your eyes. Shep has had an immpressive career, and the dude is not even 40 years old. He still has lots of room to grow. You are looking at Warhol’s life work and comparing Shep’s current portfolio is not fair. I think Shep has done pretty well for himself thus far in his career. He’s mastered and proven to be one of the spear headers of the “Street Art” movement, runs a successful advertising/marketing company, print maker, musician/DJ, and has created images that this generation can recognize in an instant on a global level(Andre Icon and Obama). You need to stop hating and just accecpt that he is a huge force in his industry.

  7. I dont like to talk shit, but I havent seen a shep poster in the last 2 years that Id consider buying, even for $30 or whatnot dollars. Remember “eagle mountain”? Yeah, that was cool as crap.

  8. Re the Warhol line – You are right, he is in the mid of his carer and he is flying. I take that point. He is also doing an amazing job.
    I shouldn’t bitch so much – we can all love Warhol and Fairey alike !!
    Have a great weekend

  9. “musician/DJ” LOL thanks for the laugh I heart Moog.

    BTW Shep might have made himself a good career thus far, but it’s just because you all are donkey’s. Taking a photograph and turning it into a silkscreen and thinking it’s the best thing since slice bread is laughable.

    Seriously where is the talent? And don’t forget Shep is also a complete liar and a fraud and now looks like a complete douche in this AP case against him.
