I can't say I've seen many old prints to compare...but Static is kind of the best in the game in terms of giclee printing and painting reproductions. I have seen the originals and prints for Cloisters and others from Gilded Age and they all look stunningly accurate to the real deal.
Well first of all Cloisters and Hugs are different conversations, those are in a league of their own and Static knocked those out of the park.

And Well yeah, no doubt they're at the top of the game. So many artists use Static, it is surely for good reason. I wasn't saying there is anything wrong with Static. I just think for, specifically some of Esao's pieces, I think the old method looks better. You really have to have both to compare side by side. And btw I have seen most of the Original Paintings of the prints I am talking about. There have been 1 or two static prints that frankly showed up and were a little disappointing (Wino, Murina's tomb), and then again there are others that blow my mind (Petrichor, Hugs), so i can't tell. I think the method has to suit the image. But then again, printing is an art on its own and therefore subjective.

Blue is right using the peen rub metric, but Thinker is right based on a purely visual assessment.

Just worked with Esao Andrews on a huge mural he painted for The Long Beach Convention Center here in Long Beach, CA.

The client had a vision with butterflies and Esao took the idea and ran with it. He definitely did some pretty stellar work and in record time nonetheless.

Overall, a really nice guy and a super awesome to hang with.

Filmed and edited by me.

One of my favorites. Love it!
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.
