As a D*Face and Travis Barker fan this one is a no-brainer :drool:

Was hoping he'd drop a print of this, even cooler that he got the gang to sign it as well.

Good luck to those trying to score!

Anybody have a newsletter link or details with an image they can forward me? (Or just add it to the database yourself? :D)

I am right there with you. Really wish there were some available that weren't signed by the band.

Isn't that really most if not the entire point of doing art prints of band-commissioned pieces: so that people who aren't necessarily fans of the band can still buy and appreciate the art on its own? Interesting choice

Totally feel you guys, you were hoping for a different signature

The point of doing art prints of band commissioned pieces is so the artist can make money (or more money depending on the circumstances)... don't kid yourself in thinking he's doing these for "his" fans. He's doing it for the money.

I think it is pretty awesome that the band is signing it too. I grew up listening to blink but I haven't really been feeling their new stuff. Price is a little out of my range, but good luck to whoever is going for it.

Should do like half or 40% band signed and the rest just signed by him. Regardless of where you stand on liking/hating the band, it limits your buyers.

I'm not talking about his motivation for doing it dude. I'm talking about the market and appeal from collector community. You have to be able to follow a couple steps in this train of thought lol. If he's doing it to make money as you say, then that means there's a demand. Otherwise he wouldn't make money. And I'm saying the demand/appeal for art print versions of music posters is to plug into the art collectors who favor the artwork instead of or alongside the band.
