New Obey Art Print: Johnny Ramone

Wow, now THIS is an Obey release I can get behind.  After doing a couple of event posters in the last couple of weeks, Shepard Fairey is set to drop this bomb of a release sometime tomorrow (Tuesday, October 28).  “Johnny Ramone” will likely be an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, have an edition of 450, and cost $45.  Keep your eyes on ObeyGiant.com.

EDIT:  Looks like there are actually two editions that will be available, the gold through ObeyGiant, the red through the Johnny Ramone online store.  Each will have an edition of 300.  More info on the red here.

  1. what time do they generally go up for sale?

  2. Very cool Poster but it’s hard not too notice the hands

  3. That is a sweet image of Johnny alright.

    My F5 key shall wish it had put on lube about this time tomorrow :-O

  4. I just exploded in my pants.

  5. Great print – love the background

  6. They seem to go up late morning pst as I think they are LA based.

  7. 11am – noon PST is when they seem to go up most of the time

  8. edition size is 300 and there is also a red edition available from Johnny Ramone’s store

  9. Is the red sold out already?

  10. Red is still up. Anyone know how many available?

  11. It’s not up unless you use a backdoor link. Prepare for refunds.

  12. WooT, can’t wait to get my refund.

  13. Stoney, it’s officially listed on cinderblock’s store (the company who sells the Johnny Ramone Merch) as “in stock”. there is no backdoor or any other shady business going on. it’s listed along with all the other ramone products, you can add one to your cart and check out.

  14. Thanks for the update fee, w00t, can’t wait to get my print.

  15. ML,

    it wasn’t an update. it’s on cinderblock’s site and listed as in stock but i just got an email from johnny ramone’s mailing list saying it’s going to be released tomorrow…. so it looks like someone screwed up by adding it to the store early. who knows what they will do with all the orders placed.

  16. is it sold out?

  17. actually. don’t answer that

  18. I just paid for one so I hope it goes through

  19. I hope this is a Daniel Danger/Diesel Fuel style mess up and we’ve been lucky! I love the Ramones!

  20. Man, I’m going to be kind of pissed if I don’t get that red poster – it was supposed to go on sale today! Gr.

    When do Shepard’s prints go up normally?

  21. I am confused

    Is the red going up
    OR
    Been up and gone ?

    Thnks

  22. The red was available last night….Buyers have called this morning to confirm their orders and so far they seem to be honoring them.

  23. Well – That’s good, I think.

    Even if I didn’t get one – I am glad that they are honoring the purchases – Normally in these cases they don’t and send emails saying so….. and then the shit show starts again with disgruntled people……. If they sold em – They sold em in my eyes.

    Now – lets get ready for the obey site.

  24. Damn. Wish I’d checked this board last night. I was waiting until today to start hitting up both websites. Looks like I missed out on the cinderblock snafu.

  25. Ouch… bad news on the reds being already sold. There’s 2 prints on eBay right now. Good luck to everyone else trying to purchase this poster, we are gonna need it. $50 a piece and a bunch of lag.

  26. Did those people that bought a red get a confirmation e-mail? I didn’t, have to try for the gold one I guess……

  27. I tried to order a red one last night but got an error message saying they couldn’t process my card so I tried again and got the same message and gave up. Today I see they charged my card twice but I never get any emails or anything from them.

  28. I didn’t get charged on my card yet. But I did get an order number on the site. Just log in and check “my account” Also, no email confirmation yet.

  29. Yep no email either when I ordered mine

  30. Cheers ML, I do have a number and it says processing, but not sure if I trust it………..

  31. shit, i’m kinda pissed I missed it. oh well, can’t win em all..

  32. all gone?!

  33. Well the red just showed back up on the JRA site but I am unable to complete a transaction

  34. Hrmm well I see the red one in the cinderblock store but it cannot process. Damn =/

  35. Yeah I think it sold out, I see a back order on the item in my cart. I was pretty quick on it too, had to have gotten in there within 2 minutes of it going up

  36. Crap. I got all the way to Paypal before it gave me a server error and dumped me out.

    Same thing on cinder block’s website.

    This sucks.

  37. same here, got past paypal, back to the obey site and after interminable waiting finally got a message that it’s out of stock.

    what a crock.

  38. Same same
    Got 1 in cart – Got to paypal, pressed pay – Click to complete transaction
    Kicked out
    1 in cart but product sold out

    There is a theme here -

  39. well I just had an order go though on cinderblock… wither I actually get one or not is another story I guess…

    Obey site was exceptionally hammered this time. No luck there

  40. That was the most demoralising 2 hours I have ever spent………never again

  41. The cinderblock store says “sold out” on the image, but lets you check out as “backordered”

  42. Why does the obey site lag around and freeze up for every release?

    300 times 45 each = better god dame server ass wipes!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. if the server didn’t slow down like this the print would be gone in 1 second. there’s no solution.

    p.s. its gone now.

  44. I don’t get it ether. 300 prints @ $45 = $13,500 (minus the cost of goods)… why in the hell can he pay for a decent webstore?!

    still cant get through.

  45. I wanted this print to put in my living room. Like the last 3 times I tried to buy an obey print, the website crashed. Just fix the goddamn servers, you cheap bastard! If it sold out in 1 minute that would be better than waiting here for 2 hours, only to have the order not complete. Shepard Fairley you cheap bastard, fix your servers!

  46. yeah schwag websites brah. this bs with the stuff going up the night before is also kinda funny. arts + internets = tardfests

  47. well they did charge the credit card so hopefully we get the red. still processing though. no luck with the gold. server is ridiculous

  48. They should sell it on ebay. Huck sold 80 prints in 36 seconds and no sign of crash.

  49. ML – That’s not a bad shout – Use Ebays servers……..

  50. received a confirmation # for the red print, they charged my card $61.83, and there hasn’t been a confirmation e-mail as of 5:26 p.m. (PST) the print out receipt from the website says back-ordered in red. i guess i have at least a 50% shot at it.

  51. i’ll trade red for gold! wait no the other way around! word!

  52. Just a warning for anyone planning to by one on ebay. Fakes of Obeys’ prints have been popping up left and right as his works have increased in value.

  53. Response to t rex: If the print is fake, theres a thing called paypal buyer protection. Try reading the auction details more.

  54. just got confirmation that my red has been sent. :)
