Shep should do a line of famous people in burkas if he is going to do art with faces covered.

Not even the worst Fairey this year. That honor goes to the pigeon toed, beret wearing, emo-tagger that's still on his site.

Still, if you're a huge Bob Dylan fan, this has to be somewhat of a disappointment.
absolutely correct. i just didn't give a ish about the pigeon-toed pansy assclown, but dylan? that hurts, shep. you should have your art license revoked for a year. he couldn't afford the rights to a better shot of dylan?
It's so stupendous, living in this tube!

I'm with you... It's drymounting bob dylan... I was hating on it, and the hands are nasty, but I don't think I own ANY Dylan prints...

Cate Blanchett edition.
And I'd buy this in a heartbeat. So if and when this does become a print, I'd appreciate it if someone here could pick this up for me(my blackberry is too slow).

I 'm thinking of paying Fairey $$$ to NOT send this to me.

Lips are way too dark as well ,makes it possible for it to be Robert Smith behind that Michael Jackson style hand .

Agreed. Even given the slightly weird decision to go with the "Ashbury/Haight" text, this is a very good looking print when hanging on the wall. Very nice coloring.

Shep's Dylan is most def an EPIC FAIL. Albeit one for which he will pull in about $30k, give or take a few nickles. So "epic" is sorta relative, I guess . . .

Seeing the original photo explains the bad hands. It's not Shepard Fairey, Dylan has ugly hands.
