Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried.

Ben Young - "And I'm a fan of a small fraction of what he releases" - small fan huh, you own 227 of, to quote Codeblue this duke's artwork. Hate to see how many you would have if you liked his "artwork". Anyway, carry on just another GRUMPY, WHITE GUY, I guess.
That numbers a little high (but I haven't updated my EB in a bit), but yes I collected his Super series and Food Dudes. But since he has 825 releases in the database that puts me at about 1/4 of his out put interests me. Oh well, I'm sure this comment to will be analyzed and picked apart, have at it.

To my fans in this thread, thank you for your support and encouragement all these years, it means the world to me and I appreciate the hell out of you. For real.

To all the haters in this thread. I've honestly never ran into this kind of hostility in my entire life. None of y'all know me, but you must really hate my art, or some comment I made at some point, and that's fine. You just keep sitting on the sidelines anonymously spectating, talking fudge, but the reality is not one of you has ever had the gall to say any of this to my face, not once. Some of you, too cowardly to even stand in line with your wives to buy stuff from my booth...

Anyways, This will be my last post on this forum. Bye.
HAHAHAH good drymounting riddance ya chump. Let's hope you stick to it. Too drymounting funny that a couple of comments gets you to run and hide. :lol:

What a tool; Leaves on a "come up and say it to my face" combined with a wife insult. Pure drymounting class.

Mike, your 45 design is aces!

That is all.

I love all the artist/fan interaction, but this will be my last post in this thread. Bye.

I am sure you all have your reasons for your feelings toward MM, but in this thread it just comes across as hostile. I liked it when some artists actually contributed to the site, but it appears we ran them off as well.

After a couple times blaming it on “temperamental” artists, it is now abundantly clear that it is the inhabitants of this site. What could someone you don’t know have done to rate this vitriol?

TL;DR; this why we can’t have nice things

To be fair, those were Mike’s first two posts in about 3 years. While people were always doing their thing here, it’s not them (I guess I should include myself and say us) why artists don’t post here anymore. It’s the same reason a bunch of people left in general. Sad.

Lord Kingshit got married, grew up and moved on and he is the only one who was posting regularly in my time here.

eh. i mean, im not defending what people said on here, but mike left this site years ago. and has a discord dedicated to just him and his fans.

consolidating his fanbase to people to who are into the bastard prints and micro releases, mystery releases, and other very small hyper focused releases.

Id personally just like the ability to buy the homer with the skully eyes at a normal price and a not have it be a random inclusion of a bastard print. but the juice isn't worth the squeeze of the price. But that seemingly works for the fanbase he wants to cater to now.

all the artists that were on here are on facebook and some have moved on to discord. this place is a collectors retirement community. not the primo spot to collect info on releases and discussion.

yeah people on here were pretty intense in their dislike of his release, but it seems to be a prime example of the market and fanbase he caters to. who aren't on this site anymore.
