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

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. If there was a slight tweak to the majority of prints they would have been great IMO. (Platinum Club Editions) And another thing that kills them is quite a few are rehashes of older prints / or reissued older prints with tweaks to them.

The people who say they're "digging the new print": can you articulate what it is you like about it? What about it do you feel makes it a worthwhile piece of art? In non-generalities.
So it goes...

Personhood print release please?!?

Platinum Time To Move On looks nice Ipath. I totally see what you are saying. I feel like I got spoiled with Natural Springs and don't care for the last or this upcoming release.

Move on. :wink:

You fudge your pants when you saw a blue variant bug done by Horkey.

Some of us like propaganda art, this one not so much but it's not horrible. Yes he can do better, but doesn't mean that some people out there won't like it.

Please go stalk the Horks Instagram. I bet a snippet from '06 is coming and it's gone be drool worthy!!!
Same fudge, different drop.

Does this print signify that Shepherd is finally going to move on from the Big Oil themes? God I hope so. He has squeezed every last drop out of it. Pun intended

Way to dodge the question by taking shots at me. I genuinely would like know. But of course you have to take offense and start insulting. Good talk. :cheers:
