Not sure what this will do either - but it's all about subject matter me thinks.

Warhol / Marilyn / Skulls = Imagery for a pretty broad audience.

Revok / Tags = Imagery for the graf tagger audience.

The variants aren't being flipped because it would be childs play for the MBW camp to identify

But I don't think MBW cares about flipping so it shouldn't make any difference

Would be devious if someone that didn't score put up a variant on ebay to cause some rando's order to be cancelled :twisted:

MBW.camp thrives on hype- doubt there would be any issue.

Pretty much, Brainwash flipping doesnt bring out the same reaction as other artists

I'm surprised there aren't more.
Almost up to 30 now. I bet half or more of these get flipped.

If an artist doesn't give a flip- why should anybody else.

No argument here Roo- pass the ziggi :lol:

I rarely care about this topic, the exception was Keyes recently, and after Keyes blessed the mass flipping- I just don't care anymore- not my business, just have my opinion of the potential damage to the average person trying to obtain the art.
