From the DCS blog:
'Though we had to cancel printing the Cannabis Cup poster due to Jeff's health concerns, we were still able to complete and print this print for The Rokerij. Jeff will be doing signings at one or more of the Rokerij's 4 locations in Amsterdam the week of the Cup. We're looking forward to spending time in these very cool chill spaces!! We will have a small quantity of these available sometime in December."

:cheers: Another winner Jeff!

not to be a prick but aren't eyeball and skeleton themed prints getting a bit old? This print looks very similar to the UM SB print Wood just did. Maybe it's IMO but man, I'm sure there's some other conceptual ideas out there to choose from. I'm going to pass on this one.

If you don't like it, don't buy it, it's just that simple.

..... criticism is fine, if well thought out ... I always read it and think about it - why not? But, repeating the same criticism within a few posts stretches a mere point of view into something else ... as voiced by others above.

Of course any illustration influenced by the classic Hindu Mandala is going to have similarities in the geometry, patterns, and "feel". The design has been used for a very long time for many good reasons - one of which is that it's beautiful. So, Jeff has created several modern Mandalas. Great!

And the eyeball? Von Dutch painted the first eyeballs on customized Hot Rods in LA during the '50's. Rick Griffin brought it to surf art and psychedelic art in the 60's. Others have used it effectively. So, it's been around for at least 50 years. It ain't going away either. Why? A lot of people like it. It's that simple.

Take in consideration Griffin's influence, and the ethnic art influence, on Jeff's art and illustration and I find the outcome of his efforts natural.

After all, he is an artist. Most artists run through phases. Been that way for 1000's of years.

His work is usually gorgeous, even if the band on the poster can't hold a tune, the colors used are not a person's favorites, or the illustration is not a person's favorite. Recognizing the sheer talent in an artists work, even if you don't personally favor these characteristics, is a step in loving art as a whole.

Now that's a perfect example of constructive criticism. Well said.
