Wow!

Or somethin.

wezzburlesqueSend wezzburlesque a message :   Those Beastie Boys portraits look exactly like Shepards portraits. Same color scheme, same style, same placement of icon where Shepard puts the Obey logo. it's like he went "what old school rap or punk rock person has Shepard not done yet. Let's see, he's got Public Enemy, Run DMC, Danzig, Joan Jett, The Ramones. Oh shit, he hasn't done the Beasties yet! I'll do that one!" his Brittany portrait is done in the same style as his Joan Jett portrait, all stencilly but the colors look like the Andy Kaufman Shepard stuff. it's like mix and match.   2004-11-11 20:06:22

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Those Beastie Boys prints on the site are sick. I want those.
Wondering why people would be hassling this guy for doing work similar to Shep?
I could point out 10 regulars here that cop AA's style and 10 more that cop Patenet Pending. And cop that shit WAY closer than this dude does to Shep.
Pretty silly.

twelvevoltSend twelvevolt a message :   I think this one rivals some of Tooth's work in regards to completely RULING the 1 color print. I am seriously impressed.
And Richie is right, Fairey didn't develop the style that shows thourgh a little on this print. He was lucky that the Giant shit took off ,and people caught wind of his other stuff and made it seem like he invented that illustration style. Not to bash Shep though, looking through Swindle Magazine proves that the dude is on top of his shit.
Enough rambling.
Crucial print.

lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   I thought more of JSG Boggs when I saw this rather than shep... but that's who I figured that's who influenced shep to start doing the money/stock note thing.
I dig it. I think it's pretty good for a one color poster. Strong.
Did you do text on paths or did you use the text tool? I'm guessing the warp based on letter spacing and 'the mic king' being slightly off.

jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   poster is cool but the bill of the cap in back is at a funky angle that puts the image a little out of whack.   2004-11-10 11:28:04
jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   well, i would have to disagree with you...llts of people do this style...before and after fairy...some without even knowing who he is.
I would guess this is closer to a BDIX joint...and anyone frequenting this site would get alot of influence from BDIX more so than Fairy...IMHO

ewyttSend ewytt a message :   I was very curious to see where my comment would go with this crowd. I have only posted a few times and now I see this is a pretty edgy group of people.
I love this guys's work, he is really great. I posted to compare his work to Shepard and to strke a conversation about it. Like it or not, it is very influenced by him, you would be a fool not to see it.
I agree with gurillaink on his thoughts and i don't think text-fights are worth anything except and ability to loose respect from others reading them.

guerrillainkSend guerrillaink a message :   Well I must say that anybody that does not get inspiration from the outside world is not being completely honest with themselves. Nobody got to where they are by themselves. Consciously considered or not, Inspired or not, what’s well done, is well done. Art progression / evolution is part of all that we do. Mixing styles, changing styles, evolving subject matter, is at the root of everything that is done it seems. (please show me otherwise) that would be aww inspiring)   2004-11-10 09:45:07

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   I do tons of shit. I'm Richie Goodtimes. I've fabricated a personality that allows me to go to shows for free and get free drinks and get laid a lot and work for customers of my choosing and say no to others. I also do a ton of other work that I don't need you to justify for me as to whether it's good or not. Like I said. I'm Richie Goodtimes. I've started purchasing parts for a chopper I'm gonna build cause I am a self indulgent asshole who can afford to do so.
Anyways...some smart guy said dude was ripping off Shepard. Shepard knows he isn't the be all end all of this style and he knows where it came from too.
You...you're like a speck to me.

ewyttSend ewytt a message :   amazing work. i really dig the icons, especially the brush. don't know what is going on with the squiggles behind the hat?
The lines and style reminds me of Shepards portraits and his line work in his posters, especially the "this is your god" and the political portraits.
