Re: Dead Man 09 Horkey

Gonna have to go with GreenMt's opinion on this one. Little too garish for my taste. Feels like he could have exercised a little more restraint. The man IS talented, no doubt about that. Doesn't mean you have to go full bore every time. Glad y'all are nutso over it, though. . it would look great as...

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

I think you discount too easily the effect of hype and limited editions on the general public. A cool print that I *might* consider buying could turn into a *must have* with the power of the hive mind. Hence, I think, some of the insane fervor for many of these film/TV prints (or Phish/DMB prints, t...

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

another question: Would you buy a full-color reproduction of an artist's sold out print that you really love the art for if someone were to produce knockoffs? This is a whole other can of worms, but maybe more artists who have the means and popularity should keep editions open for a set amount of t...

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

The reason I bring this up: One of the recurring answers I'm hearing is "I buy the art I like, other than that I don't care." So I'm unraveling that thread to its logical conclusion.

wondering what ethical breach is egregious enough for those who just "buy what they like" to stop buying.

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

For what it is worth, I said that I didn't see the big deal with Otto's print. I did not purchase it though, because I already have enough BB posters so I did not, in turn, support this rogue act of print terrorism... I put it out there because it's fascinating to see it take off and watch many art...

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

Ethically I certainly don't think that making a print and titling it 'Breaking Bad' while using the likeness of the main character without permission is right at all. There is no way to spin it other than making money on someone else's intellectual property but if the owner of that IP is indifferen...

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

I can fully respect that. Unlicensed stuff isn't something that I fully condone, but if it is the only way that I can get something art/media-related that I really love that may not ever be able to be created fully legit, then sure, why not? Unless you're talking about bootlegging/pirating on a mas...

It says that they don't want to be sued, not necessarily that they think there's anything wrong with it. you don't think that there might be something wrong that you're liable to get sued over? just because they were creating bootlegs doesn't necessarily mean they believed what they were doing was ...

sorta?

I am a journalist. So member of media. I guess I am closer to the artist camp, only in the form of writing, so perhaps I'm more sensitive to these issues.

Re: G88 Breaking Bad ARG/Gallery SHOW?!?!? (RUMOR)

I'm sorry I'm upsetting you, and I'm not trying to see if you can persuade me because my stance on this is that bootlegs devalue the entire industry, hurting both artists and the producers of the show. Ask Olly Moss and Tyler Stout and all of the big names why they don't do them anymore . Interesti...
