Like Banksy, but not all that clever, and 10 years too late.

That isn't even remotely clever or funny. Banksy did this same imagery in 2007 (stop and search). Come up something new!

Wait, I got an idea, next print should be The Punisher not being allowed into a public library because they BAN GUNS! Get it? Because it would be kinda ironic. Like an iconic character being told not to do things because like modern times are so tight on security and stuff. Money in the bank, yo. You're welcome.

I would agree. Half tones don't really make as much sense for an image meant to mimic stencil art. *shrugs*

Despite your 10 months of expertise, I think it prudent to leave it to the professionals when making those calls. Not the best idea to be throwing your two cents in all over the place when you barely have a nickel to your name.
Glad you're so knowledgeable about my situation. Mind your own business. i was giving my opinion. No need to jump on someone for stating their point of view.
it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that you've only been a member here a VERY short time yet you seem to believe that the fact you post 20 times a day makes you an 'expert' when you are anything but. like i've told plenty of people like you before, shut your mouth, open your ears and maybe at some point down the line you'll be able to contribute something worthwhile around here.

so much as i can tell your only 'contribution' around here is reposting IG pics, which, given that it's a free app that can be viewed on any device with an internet connection, seems redundant.

I'd say in 10 months, MFaith has contributed a lot more to this forum than you have in 9 years. If he has a nickel, you have a penny.
Totally unnecessary attack on a valid, personal opinion bra!
if i had even an inkling of whothefuck you are, your words might mean something. however, it seems in 10 years you've managed to contribute even less than me, bra.

also, i love how people automatically equate a large number of posts with 'contributing'. plenty of idiots around here who run their mouths yet haven't contributed a goddamn thing.

How about ho-bots? Could be a nod to the scene.

I'd rather read mfaith's instagram reposts than you whine like a little girl.

Ridiculously excited for the Akira print today. Hoping I can score a paper; I rarely think foil actually looks great in person :(

Eh sounds a little too dirty.

I like Tabbys stuff though. I think it is clever and refreshing currently in this market. The prices are reasonable and its fun.

Comparisons to Banksy will always be there. He is the one that put the medium on the map and has done so much over the course of his career, that you will always find something to compare it to.

This bralumian fellow is AGGRESSIVELY "braluminating" the drymount out of all the ignorants on this forum. Hail our new overlord!

I actually think Tabby's style is more like Stout's to be honest. The super rough lines and the whole scene collage trying to depict as much of a movie as humanely possible in one print. I think there may be way too much going on in it. Hard to take it all in. :?
