not sure what/who jeff wood does, but if emek is canceling orders based on emails he receives about people telling him that someone tried to flip a print, what stops anyone from emailing Emek and lying about it, just to get a print for cost? i'm pretty new to the scene, but as a newb, it would make more sense for the artists to focus on making art and enjoying family and life, instead of being the print police, or big brother. I would have gone for this print but I was on the road. its totally sick and i love the black keys, def my fav band to listen to right now. i didnt know they had so many prints and i'll have to be happy with what i have, as i'm not spending over 100 on it. ive never been refunded on anything, but i havent bought much either. it must totally suck to be refunded after thinking you own something. ouch to the refundees. why dont the artists just offer the refundees something else instead? or an ap or test print? or first dibs on the next sale they are interested in? along with this quickly being an expensive hobby, i obviously have a lot to learn. ive never bought from emeks site either, so i have no idea what the checkout process is like. I wish there was more of a standard for checking out with all of these different artists. ive definitely missed out on some great stuff by there notbeing a standard. i like the bigcartel checkout most so far. probably mondo the least, even though ive been lucky, ive also almost had a heart attack on some of their drops.

Ain't that the truth. Beyond the killer images and artwork, I would rank Jeff right up there with Firehouse & Co. with the quality of the prints, the THICK inks... almost look like big stickers when you look at 'em under the right light :lol:
