Luls, unless you can't. Like it's rocket science to guess who weren't. Works both ways.

It's been like 8 years since NEISBAW and there has only been 2 other prints (ATR and WTNFU) in his "kids and rainbows series". That's not "a lot" or redundant at all. Anyway, compared to the other 2, I find this one to be a better companion piece to the original one, as it works both on the visual and storytelling aspect simultaneously. I'm not sure it's fair to deem it as just another kids and rainbows prints "cause that's what sells".. I just said in a Chuck Sperry thread I've come bored of his chicks prints.. I can definitely understand the stall argument.. dude has a new chick print every month or so with not much behind it. This is hardly much of the same.. more like why didn't he come up with this before..

Yep.

Can only do so many Star Wars parodies and Banksy-esque kids/rainbows and gold leafing and variants of everything. After denouncing stencils, then crawling back to them. At least he's not rehashing the EXACT SAME fudge over and over like Pure Evil and those stupid Nightmares :hanging: :hanging: :hanging:

I like Eelus' earlier, creepier images, but I don't suppose they sell as well.
Lol, yup, he did a trip to Africa years ago, came back with an artistic epiphany that stencils were a lazy way out on art and that he was driven to do real art.

Guess the demand for NEISBAW clones changed his mind...
Haha. Yes I remember that as he came back with a African version of his best ever print,’ Raven Haired’. For me nothing he has done has topped the HF Raven Haired.. :clap:

Aren't you in the group? Probably more effective to ask on fb than here.

Maybe. I've opted for easier/lazier though.
