Always cool to see reference material, no matter what the print. I have to say that I don't hate that print at all. I would almost venture as far as saying that I quite like it.

Not enough to put on my wall though, so that's probably why I never actually bought one.

I feel the same about this piece... although it does have the metal border which I think makes it alittle unique as far as metals go
Modern art = I could do that + yeah... but you didnt

I also went against the popular consensus, and liked the image. Only the eyes show meta,l also a three color print.
Excellent find.

I was looking through some random books on Propaganda and this was in one of them, so I made sure to write down the name of the artist so I could find it to show you guys. Pretty cool book but dont remember the title.
