Luls indeed. Had to check it out when I got the email earlier today. "Shepard Fairey inspired" or whatever it said.

Took Shepard 2 years of probation for copyright infringement and tampering with evidence, 300 hours of community service and a fine of $25,000 to admit it, himself.

Good artists copy, great artists steal, shitty artists make shitty art.

I’m excited to be in Vienna for "Golden Future,” my show with Galerie Ernst Hilger. The show presents a selection of recent paintings, mixed media prints, mono-engravings, and retired stencils. The title "Golden Future” refers to the safe and prosperous future we all want, while asking the question: who has access to the golden future and whose future will be compromised by the machinery delivering a golden future to some? With the art in "Golden Future” I try to tackle a number of social and political issues currently in crisis including racial bias, xenophobia, sexism, media disintegration, environmental destruction, police brutality, and the corrupting influence of capitalist interests on government. Many of the art pieces showcase portraiture designed to represent a universal humanity that transcends cultural, political, racial, and religious divides. My aim with "Golden Future” is to seduce and provoke viewers and to create a dialogue about what needs to be addressed to achieve a more just, or “golden,” future.

So a few drops ago, I was unfortunately black listed from buying from Obey. Sucks, I know. Emailed them multiple times and they finally gave me the generic FAQs and Store Policy email.

So I used my wife's CC, name, and had the address sent to my parents house for today's drop. I check the status of the order just now and it says order canceled?? How the hell do they know?? Are they tracking the IP address of my phone that I used??

Only used parents address. Used wife's name and she still has her maiden name on her CC. Never ordered anything from my parents house before. I'm stumped...
