  1. wtf?
    5 whole minutes of illustrator vectors… and POW! a crap poster…

  2. Haha wow, I actually have the more detailed/worked on print when Fairey did his Urban renewal set in 2000

    Simplicity can be good, but this print looks like it forgot to run through the other silkscreen layers. WOW

  3. Yeah and sold out in 5 minutes.. ridiculous..

  4. I am 100% sure he is doing this on purpose now.
    The whole “draw 2 lines on a napkin and sell it for a million” thing.

    Wack again!

  5. it was embarrassing for a while. not it’s turning pathetic

  6. it was embarrassing for a while. now it’s turning pathetic

  7. There is no way he is for real. Definitely playing with the “art community” proving that they will buy anything. I can’t wait for one of his lemmings (sp?) to defend this.

  8. 10000% phucking with us now. No effort nor creativity behind his last 20 drops. That is what people with money tend to do, they get bored and just do random crap to kill time. So sad that we still call him “A street artist.”

  9. I live in San Diego and can’t even guess where this is. I don’t know anywhere near the trolley that has a tipple smoke stack in the background.

    If you are going to do a series images of cities, at least make it so its identifiable what city it is.

  10. Damn, this is hard to defend. He could of filled up the whole print like the SF print. I too am from SD and wish this was alot better:(

  11. Why dont people support the artists that actually put more effort into their work. Im getting to the point where the “shepard fairey/obey” brand/aura is now meaningless.

  12. I cannot think of anywhere in my home I would hang this. Maybe behind the closet door.

    This is the most boring print ever made.

  13. Agreed with everyone else. There is no way this was made in seriousness. The quality of his work has just been going downhill for a while. I know people said his Dark Wave print was illustrator crap, but at least you could acknowledge it took some time and effort to create. This one… represents neither talent nor hard work. The pattern isn’t even decent!

  14. It’s just a vector drawing of his original San Diego print.

  15. this seems all to familiar. this guy is a broken record

  16. “OBEY” seems to be taking on a whole new meaning.

  17. This is what happens when the Artist has Minions…can’t believe he signs off on this shit

  18. maybe someone kidnapped him and is trying to ruin his reputation with these awful prints…. anyone….no?……yea i didnt think so either

  19. …actually, I quite like it!
    (sort of)

  20. joke or not… a $45 investment is likely to grow 10 to 1000 times over the years. As an artist he has too much notoriety to be ignored.

  21. Say it with me now, Eeeeeee-Baaaaaaay!

  22. Studiomiguel,

    There is no way this will ever sell for $450 let alone 45000!! You can’t be serious. I would buy his worst original but not one of his worst prints.

  23. Sold out- sell out. Time to change the scheme here. Went to G1988 today and picked up four prints-satisfaction guaranteed. So much eyecandy; blissfull. I still look out for Shepard’s work. He doesn’t seem to be going out of style any time soon, but, alot of the comments made here are not far from the truth. With much respect; we all need to get paid.

  24. Also if this is gonna be worth so much in 10 years why so many flipping it on EBay. I won’t lie though; I still got love for the Posse. More so when they bust sick artwork that I really wanna buy:) I haven’t lost hope. Shepard just needs to place himself in other peoples shoes, not just donate some.
