  1. really?

  2. no

  3. First Rob Jones, thanks man

  4. despite your first impression, the amount of work that went into this one, and the amount of hidden messages and awesome fun stuff, is insane. rob gave me the rundown in austin when he was working on it. if all youre seeing is the band photo when you look at this, thats too bad. because the overprint is pretty badass in person.

  5. oh i gots it. haters beware! im the shit!

  6. If DD says it’s bad ass, that’s good enough for me

  7. Yea, honestly I passed at first. But then I saw the stamp collector overprint, and I am really looking forward to this. D&L always do an amazing job with RJ’s posters.

  8. Rob Jones rules with an iron fist.

  9. i am just more of a fan of designers who print their own work. To each his own…….

  10. this looks like capital QUALITY, — ‘ i love you longtime for 5 color………………’

  11. Yeah…something not very artistic at all about just making a image on photoshop and sending it off to the printers.

  12. Uh…okay.

  13. You are retarded.

  14. Yeah Cous Cous, I’m sick of the constant hating on shit. Chill it out.

  15. I think it’s great. I’m just sayin I’d like it more if he printed it himself…pulled the page, played with the paint, put em to dry, etc. with his own hands.

  16. why does everyone get so mad when someone gives their personal opinion? I agree that always hating on stuff is counterproductive, but simply saying what you like is no big thing

  17. Saying what you like or don’t like is perfectly fine. Saying that it isn’t art unless you pull the prints yourself is retarded.

    Very few of the big names pull their own prints, and when you move to the “fine art” giclees….. forget about it.

    Is it art only when they hand pull? Do auto presses count? Ridiculous.

  18. redbear the message you are reading would be a lot less deplorable to you if you tried to comprehend its message. CC didn’t say it wasn’t art. She said that there’s “something not very artistic” about not printing your own prints. She was only commenting on that fact not being artistic. The fact that other artists make giclees or don’t make their own screenprints is irrelevant.

  19. The most respected creative and artistic people in the world don’t produce their own prints, like zero of them. This is a stupid argument to even be having, take it somewhere else.

  20. i only buy art if the artist has crafted the paper using a tree that he or she has grown and nurtered for themselves and then pulped into a 180gsm sheet using nothing but their bare hands

  21. I dont get the “it would be better if the artists printed their own prints argument” (I think its a very street art thing to say) would it also be better if the artist made their own paper, and ink as well? A lot of designers (myself included) can screen print but by no means are amazing at it as it is a completely different skill set than creating art. If you want a very high quality product for the people who buy your work why not let someone else do it who is very skilled in printing and has the best tools to do so, its logical and it just leaves the artist more time to do what they do.

    I think this print looks great, very simple but effective.

  22. ‘Nuff said. And well said.

  23. redbear, many of the best designers of today pull their own prints.

  24. Like who?

  25. Reading these comments and seeing others in the same vein of the past year…

    Its OK, it really is OK not to like someones work.

    Whats not OK is when people use this site to insult, bully and generally be a nob jockey.

    This site promotes great work, in turn we should respect this space and build a community.

    If you don’t like it (as I do not) then cool, move on and walk away – Don’t spin around and insult as someone has put hard work into this and Admin has taken time to post this. Respect all views and post respectful points.

    There my 2 cents worth.

    I do realize that these are also just some of my personal favorites, but they are really some of the best out there.

  27. DJ, almost all of those people have autopress printers, the same ones used in the big shops. They are not printing by hand.

  28. Also, Mat Daly (who is awesome) prints most of Jay’s stuff at The Bird Machine.

  29. I did not mean that all of the designers pull everything 100% by hand, I just know that they all know how to screenprint very well, and almost all of them started with a table, a set of hinges and a few screens. And by no means did I intend to insult designers who do not screenprint, like i said before to each his own. as a designer and printer who pulls everything by hand still, it really is a preference based on my personal experience and knowledge.

  30. Sold out!

  31. Kosick – Cous Cous did not say “there’s “something not very artistic” about not printing your own prints”, she said “something not very artistic at all about just making a image on photoshop and sending it off to the printers”.
    I hope most people agree it´s a less accomplished comment.

  32. mine has been posted.

    this is the first screen print i have bought. i’ve just found this amazing site.
    question: does it do them any harm to keep them in postal tubes?
