The opposite can be said about most women. :wink:

You still have a lot to learn about women, Mike.

i could be wrong but i remember it being thick stock at the party thing back in march
well timmay, I must say your whole case about this AP thing is a little bogus. First of all, show me a seller who has sold multiple AP's of this. If there are people out there mass producing these and writing AP on them (like you seem to think), please show me the person by proving they have sold multiples of them. Wouldn't that be what they would do? Also, I have looked at completed auctions of many Obey AP's and there doesn't seem to be any real set way that AP is written. Besides, Fairey just signs these things, I don't think he numbers them all himself as well.
no response to this? hmmm

wow. calm down man. no need to call me a 'moron' 'ignorant' 'drymountin' 12 year old' with 'lack of experience'. I just simply provided a rebuttal to your stance on the matter. don't take these forum debates so seriously, go breathe some fresh air my friend.

move on buddy. i said my piece a few times and you kept dragging it up. now you want to take the high road. i love when people poke around for fudge then act shocked when they get it.

btw- i am quite calm and have enjoyed plenty of fresh mountain air today. and dont worry, i have yet to lose any sleep over some silly internet bullshit.

hope all is good with you. and dont go buying HOPE artist proofs.

I'm sure those will sell quick :lol:
I've got nothing against the guy trying to make a few bucks but he didn't even know that the image Fairey used came from his photo until those danziger people told him January 21st. He must have seen Fairey image thousands of times and never realized.
