I have to disagree. His art is still on point. Maybe its your taste that has changed.

I'm diggin the new print!

you will always. deff not on point IMO. You must not be seeing clearly these days. Codeblue speaks the truth 07 last good year. Very few good prints since then. Its tough when he puts out so much work to keep it up.
He also put out some of his worst fudge in 07. Of course now in hindsight nubs lurve it.

I buy them all and have them in a few 18x24 portfolios.. my kids can open them in 50-75 years and see what the market fetches.
60$ is nothing... I spend just as much buying scratch offs each week.

I suppose my gripe with Shepard is that I know he's capable of good work but doesn't care enough to ensure that all of his releases actually are good. It's frustrating for me to see an artist prioritize quantity over quality but that's just my personal preference. There are obviously lots of fans stoked to see a release from Shep every week so I'm glad that they're happy but I would rather see Shepard release less pieces and put more effort into each one.

I love that OG is releasing a print every week. Some prints that appeal to some won't appeal to others. I've passed on some releases that others were stoked about.

I know it's easy for people to slip into the "I only listen to the first three Metallica albums" mentality, but an artist has to stay true to himself and follow his vision.

Whether you're in the market for cheap prints, older prints, HPMs, fine art/OGs, clothing, or just like to admire his murals - he's involved with them all, to varying degrees.

There's only so much Shep to go around - he cannot give 100% to everything.

It's a great time to be a fan, honestly.
