Loving this! Really different for him but somehow is still recognizable as a Dolk piece. Lovely!

Screen is amazing but just don't "get it". Anyone know what it is referencing?

I like it - not typical Dolk. Hard to interpret though...

TOY is often seen next to graffiti. It means incompetent or inexperienced tagger....

Thats my take boys...

The OG looked so much better imho, it's not funny at all. :(
Same thing happened for me with Eelus' NEISBAW, although not to the same extent. It's much better than no print at all, but when you fall in love with a piece, it's hard not to set yourself some expectations to the standards of the image already out. Oh well.

This angle seems to improve it for me....although I agree with you tranito, the OG is miles better.

Still wouldn't mind trying for it though...but time zones aren't that conducive when in OZ and theres no mention of drop times....

I agree the OG is better as well. I especially prefer the softer colors but I still really like the image and meaning behind the piece. Best Dolk in awhile IMO!

Actually yea, this is the best suggestion yet, the mess of tags is the current art climate and the girl is the art buying world?
