Agree wholeheartedly with this one.

I'm by no means a huge fan of Emek but this statement is ridiculous.
greenhorn1 wrote:so much of his stuff just looks like glorified doodles or like he didn't put a lot of effort in. i mean compare the took x-ray, or nick cave, or mars volta to the latest badu or festival of the week print and they're not even in the same ballpark. this COULD turn out to be fantastic but i'm not holding my breath.
No doubt even the biggest Emek fan (Taper?) would agree that there is a huge variety in the 'quality' of Emek's work but to suggest that he has only 10-15 posters that are "quite good" is nuts!

I'm intrigued by what this collaboration will bring. I have no doubt that Emek will be bringing his "A-game" considering it will be judged alongside Horkey's work.
I don't think there is a "bad" EMEK poster! I DEFINITELY wish certain posters were for other bands, (Erkyah Badu, haha), but they are all damn good in their own way... EMEK is amazing, each one has tons of work put in, everything is great!

you guys know that emek was actually making posters before 2006.......right?

I just did a count and not including variants and handbills.........he's made around 300 posters in his career.

So many EMEKs, so little time... Seriously, I see old EMEK prints on WALLS that I've never even seen a jpg for...
Twisted Shout on Colfax has a few...
