What if the world really was black and white?
What if you created a print that was an obvious ripoff of something called Not Everything Is So Black & White?

Wow, ebeans sure is a nutty place sometimes -- what if this comment thread had some actual commentary on the art? I'll lead off:

I'll be the first to say that I like this print. For me, it's fun, it's light-hearted, and it seems the artist isn't taking himself too seriously. (And I like bears.) Sure, we've seen the concept before: monochrome print with CMYK illustration added for aesthetic and/or ironic effect. I dig it. But does one artist, or another, deserve credit for the concept? Probably not (though Mr. Boyd is clearly referencing earlier works to this effect). Does Mr. Boyd deserve credit for a sweet first print, screened entirely by hand? Absolutely! I say we should be supporting and encouraging new and emerging artists, not finding weak-ass little things to discredit their efforts. Bravo on your first print, Greg! :clap:

agreed as well, very very nice job for a first print release....that many colors takes some guts and lots of practice to get right. Props to the artist. I think its a cool idea. Will be picking this one up.

Each print has been splattered with paint introducing another punch of color to the original design. This is the only alternate edition / variant to the original 25 Monochrome Malaise prints. All other print specifications are the same as the original. The price will be the same $40.00 USD and they will be available on the same release page at 3:00PM EST on Thursday, December 15.

Great deal for $40...the variant is the same price as reg...don't see that too often!
