Democracy Now is one of the best actual news sources going. I love that Emek posted the link to this story:

Might be cool with maybe some of the emblems or symbols of those organizations making the best efforts/strongest use of dollars whatever...with these nfp's organization's emblems in the 'fret board" at the 3rd 5th 7th 12th fret etc. Kina' Kustom like a paul reed smith or ANY of the old stringed instruments available for viewing at "America's Shrine to Music" in Vermillion South Dakota. It is
America's collection of instrumentation from around the world...in a city most people have never heard of. The place is baddf'nass.

Its hard to add to perfection...it was merely an observation.

400 is NOT ENOUGH!!!
Goddamnit, I've been shut out on a lot of recent EMEK sales... NOBODY should be shut out when trying to buy a print for a cause like this..
I really hope EMEK makes this a time limited sale, unlimited run, or charges $300+ for these, which I would be HAPPY to pay.

I know the feeling pj...I've gotten 2 emeks my whole career(one that obviously only I wanted b'cause its 'value' is less than its original cost- don't care though, its framed and lookin' dapper as ever)....and one was b'cause I picked the right answer.

It is what it is.

something tells me if I were about 1600 miles closer to the server source - I'd actually get one of these once in a while.

Great Piece, FINALLY, something an image that does not look recycled like many of the prints in 09'

I know artist's have their own style, but I felt like a lot of Emek's art was just being forced out print after print. All of them were nice, but this one is Great!!!

I would think that if he's creating it for a relief fund that there would be a nice BIG run, but we'll have to wait and find out...

I dont think this image is even the finished piece. So I'm sure it will get even better.

Fairey does it all the time. What's wrong with EMEK doing that? It's not as if these are free to produce...
