I really enjoy this artist's work. Thought we could start a new hub for any updates. Check out his new 23 print set:

I'm a huge fan of Eads' work, and figured this topic could use a bump today as he is offering free shipping on all orders placed today and tomorrow (enter "PRESIDENTIAL" at check out for the discount).

I really dig his latest, "Finding Alakazoo." I think it may be my favorite pick-up of the year thus far. Enjoy!

FYI, new Halloween-themed timed print up by James. The Skully Mambo, based on the old animated short, The Skeleton Dance.

Print just landed. The packing was awful. Just some twisted up craft paper and no tape on the end cap. Luckily it got here in pretty good shape. A little wavy, but we'll see if I can get it back to flat. For $11 shipped, I'm happy!

I've bought 3 prints from Eads now and I have to say, every single one of them has been packed like fudge. And each one of them is packed in a different shitty way. Luckily the only one that arrived with damage was the one I got from the S&D sale, so it was already messed up, but still. He (or whoever packs his stuff) need to get it together because I'm afraid to order from him anymore.

James has done a lot to up his profile this summer with several stunning prints.

It started off with a bang when he released the DMB Saratoga Springs. What a breakout print! Then the Foo Fighter's prints and a gem for MMJ.

I too have experienced the lack of shipping acumen. Plus, James has a habit if "forgetting" to sign his APs.

But I still love his work and am happy to see his surge in popularity this summer.

Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view

I've ordered several things - never a problem in the slightest, fortunately. I'm sure if you drop James a line he'd appreciate the feedback. He's always been pleasant in my interactions and I imagine he'd want to rectify this.
