I thought about picking up another print from them awhile back. I was put off by the fact that they were digital and unsigned (mostly put off by the former), but they are very inexpensive and, from what I understand, a good cause:
Braddock Tiles will be a community based artisanal micro-factory located in a formerly abandoned church in North Braddock Pennsylvania whose first venture will be to hand produce the 20,000 beautifully colored ceramic tiles needed to give its landmark structure a new roof.

THE CHURCH ITSELF
A project initiated by the artist Swoon, the Braddock Tile factory will be a part of a larger context of neighborhood-based art making taking place in this once blighted section of North Braddock.

The building, upon restoration to full capacity, will become the seat of an arts focused learning and resource center, and, a museum of the possible in the shell of something once left behind.

The tile factory aims to produce beautiful architectural tiles, to provide small scale employment and craft training to residents in the Braddock and North Braddock area (an area that has lost 80 percent of it’s population due to the collapse of it’s large scale industry), and to facilitate in the creative restoration of a space that will become a source of pride, wonderment, and cultural nourishment for the neighbors that help re-create it.

That C215 print is pretty dope too- my friend grabbed both of them, so I'll get to sneak a peak.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

I'll probably grab the new Candice Tripp, unless somebody chimes in that the quality sucks.

Picked this one up and the C215. Lovely images, thought they broke my no inkjet rule (beyond being unsigned)
Im going to give them as gifts during the holidays, my friends and family like art but aren't art nerds and I wanted to support the cause.

You have to wait until they go on sale. Most likely not cheap and price could vary from piece to piece

The prices will vary depending on the piece. I heard there were going to be over 40 pieces available. Given that Swoon will be having an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum next year it's safe to assume her stock is rising.

Every piece is going to be different and most are done on repurposed, salvaged materials.
