Honestly, if Shepard Fairey came to you and said the he wanted to see some samples of your work to incorporate into his, would you not try to show him anything and everything you were capable of doing? Personally I think he just did a ton of garbage in that hopes, and the future revenue would outshine the cost of the now. It's not like this is the same year that Peace Goddess came out that he is selling these. He has sat on them, for whatever reason.

and how do we know shepard went to him? maybe Peter saw a potential windfall with Shepard as a client and approached him with an offer to create some free samples to get his business. he very well could have contacted Shepard and said "hey, i have this cool printing on metal process that i think would look awesome with your work. Emek has used me in the past and loves the work i produce. why don't you send me over some artwork and i'll create a bunch of sample prints to show you everything i can do"


"Hey Shep, I've got this cool thing I do printing on aluminum. Can I...oh, you do that already?" :wink:

it's a completely different process, shepard doesn't do anything with anodized aluminum. Shepard does screen prints on basic (sanded) aluminum sheets, these are neither screen prints or basic aluminum ;)

i don't know much about it but the process makes the aluminum "absorb" dyes:
http://www.anographics.com/aboutus.html (this is his site)

like i said, i don't know much about it but there does seem to be a bit of screening in this video using some kind of chemical instead of ink which reacts to the metal and then they hand paint the dye which seems to adhere to the chemical they screened on:

It's weird that he can consistently spell "anodized aluminum" correctly.

A bunch are on ebay now. To me a few look very cool, others are ok but a couple color combinations that are a bit much more.

Yep. I thought it was funny when EC mentioned it earlier in the thread because it was already paid for and planned. Ha.

Yes, but do you have it in any other color combinations? I'm thinking neon pink, hazel, mustard yellow, and royal blue. That's a nice combo right?

got around to snapping some photos, they do have an interesting depth to them, which is hard to photo but most evident in the bottom pic. I'm not nuts about the pink, but at least mine weren't flawed as some of them were.

Yeah, it has the same depth (for lack of a better word) look as painted ice on a hockey rink, except much cleaner.
