Yes and yes, I also like the fact that he is underground not commercialized

Also that he is very accessible now and his prices are great compared to others for canvas originals. He is just starting out so I would give him 5-6 years before his prices are out of our reach and is impossible to get into contact with

He also happens to be a great guy with a passion for the arts and remians anonymous
Yes, I'm certain he is incredible accessible and very nice right now. Most talentless artists are. Sorry, just don't see the appeal. Your 5-6 year estimate just smacks of unsubstantiated hype.

So you know him personally, stating that he is a great guy and is very passionate. Yet he remains anonymous to the public. So I get that he is a friend of yours, you know him personally, and others don't. It's awesome when you are "on the inside" of something that you think is cool, so I have a better understanding now of why you are hyping this guy so hard. Carry on!

Sure the 5-6 years time frame is just a personal opinion

I do not know him personally and have never met him. The only dealings I have had with him were through his agent and email chat. Plus I dig SSOSVA in its entirety 8)

Yeah, sorry man, you just don't pass the sniff test. You definitely presented yourself like you knew him. Lame. Then you drop MBW's name...why?

I always try to give folks the benefit of the doubt but it seems you just continually talk out the side of your neck. I'm joining the rest of EB in thinking you are just a hype machine with very little substance behind your posts. Of course, I won't be as vocal about it because each of us uses these forums for our own purposes, but yeah, you're out.

Like put Bill the Cat sprawled out on the street near a garbage can wearing a gold dollar sign on a gold chain?

#so street
Now that is some art I could get into.
I'm not someone else.
