I am usaually a fan, never enough to battle the masses of worshipers for a purchase, but this is just wierd. A big eye? I kindda get it but what in the world is this good for besides sitting in a flat file. I see this print as a junk filler between his good works to keep you followers throwing money at him. We ALL know he has, can and will do so much better. Keep up the good work, give up the lame.

that's actually a good idea... but i wouldn't pay for it.. i'd just copy the eye onto a dart board.. it's what he basically did..

Why? It's only cool to big up prints you like but if you dislike it you should stay quiet? While I often adopt that approach myself unless I think someone's work is truly deplorable or outrageously priced, I think it's only right that members here post an honest response to the artwork in question. Otherwise it's all about the hype (as usual) and there's no true discussion of the art. While simply ":poo:" may be a tad underexpressive, I think it gets his message across! And personally I agree - How many eyes does the man need to release editions of and what's so special about this one? I think this is a weak-ass image that Obey might feel disappointed with as an artist if he's honest with himself. As for taking advantage of the Obeyphiles who'd buy anything with his signature on it, I can't say I blame him really. If people were only interested in his stronger work, at least half his images would still be in stock imho - most are space fillers for the 'folios of collectors - How many houses would you all need to hang all your Obey works anyway? Peace Elephant was great imo and I realy liked Israel Palestine, but other than those 2 releases it's been a LONG time since he's put anything I think is special out there. Why should we all pander to the Obeymanaiacle masses. They/you do enough of that yourselves.
