That is hot stuff right there. But might only hang the right side. :P

Dont undertand the need to make it a diptych but looks pretty sweet. Cant wait to miss again. Fun fact: more misses on obey the past year than my first 10 collecting obey

think there was a period where they refunded international orders first as well

This is absolutely true as it happened to me in the past. But I also am of the belief they pick and choose how to refund with no real consistency.

I like the new direction too, but can't unsee the fact that it's almost identical to Tristan Eaton's work.

similar. but certainly not identical. faile experimented with a similar torn collage look last year with a print series. tristan eaton certainly is not the first to do it either. he's just stuck to it for so long.

I definitely agree, but the reason I brought this up because it's similar in content as well, a portrait with messaging and other elements.

I love tristan eaton's work, but I'm not really seeing all that much of a connection here. feels like you're reaching a little.

I get that they're both using collage effect with a woman, but still don't think they're all that similar. Hell, I see more similarities between tristan and POSE.

But yeah, Shep def isn't breaking any new ground with his new work, but I don't see it as a direct rip off of any particular artist.

I agree. He's been using collage styling in his art for ages. And he regularly uses women in his art. This just brings those two together. Seems pretty natural to me.
So it goes...
