The real question is how much is davidpesek donating to charity on his flip?

Don't rage buy, I suspect that the gallery that coordinated the installation must have gotten a big chunk to sell. No way 500 sold that fast and very few on ebay. There will be more coming from somewhere

I think this print is more popular than you are giving it credit for. He made a bigger than normal announcement. I had a few of my non art friends seeing it on their Facebook and then trying to get one.

Not that I don't think it's popular, it's one of my favorites in the last 2 years. I just don't think that 500 sold in under a minute. That and the percentage of the run on ebay is much much lower than every other fairey release. I just suspect there are more to be had

I don't think so man. IME, the French are ravenous for Obey artwork. They easily make up 75% of my total Fairey sales. So a Shep print with the Eiffel Tower is going to have serious appeal for that crew. Add to that the fact that the design itself is very cool, basically an obey ornament with 4 previous obey images balanced on the tower. Good stuff.

Maybe, but a normal release with a smaller edition usually has 70 or so on the bay within the first day of release. This had what 15? 10% larger edition with 30% less available on secondary just seems off. Doesn't matter much to me as I am not looking for one.
