I just won a bet with a friend about this week's Fairey poster. He said it was going to be a Muslim woman or peace related and I said it was going to be anti-capitalism or money related.

How are people still buying this crap every week? It's like Fairey isn't even pretending to try any more.

I've never bought a Fairey and have never flipped a poster in my life. I've been following Fairey for a while now trying to understand how he's able to sell out his runs every week and I haven't been able to come up with an answer. Maybe an 800-lithograph run will finally do it.

The bubble is going to burst for Fairey poster prices. You are right about one thing: the only reason they're valued as high as they are is because people think they can keep flipping them. I mean, how many of almost identical looking posters can one person hang in their house.

BTW, the only reason he used offset was because of the detail on these "Bills" they are super small so it would be impossible to get all the minute detail.

They are still signed and numbered which I bet will lead these to be sold out in under 24 hours.

Im not going to try and buy these, but I am sure lots of people will.

Instead of ripping me for having a newer profile on EB, where am I off with my analysis of Fairey prints lately?

And I'm not trying to just hate on Fairey. I liked his prints for awhile when I first saw them. Then week after week, month after month of him putting out very similar stuff I started to think he's getting lazy and greedy.

I don't think his bubble is bursting anytime soon. After his NYC show it will only get bigger.
