    Obey/Bad Brains/Glen Friedman Collab Print Release



    Obey+Glen Friedman 'Bad Brains' Edition of 425 Size: 24 x 18 Inches $125 Each
    Obey+Glen Friedman 'Bad Brains' Edition of 425 Size: 24 x 18 Inches $125 Each

    Here is next week's release from Obey!



    Bad Brains Collaboration Print


    Bad Brains are one of my favorite punk/hardcore groups of all time. If you don’t have their self titled debut, “Rock For Light”, “I Against I”, or “Quickness”, they are all essential. I first heard Bad Brains at the beginning of 1984 when my friend lent me the brilliantly curated and titled Alternative Tentacles compilation “Let Then Eat Jellybeans”(A Ronald Reagan dessert favorite update to the Marie Antoinette slogan “Let them eat cake”). The Bad Brains song “Pay to Cum” from their first album was on the comp along with songs by Black Flag, The Dead Kennedys, The Circle Jerks, Flipper, etc.. I then went out to find full length records by all those bands. I soon discovered Minor Threat as well, and learned that Bad Brains had influenced their vocalist Ian MacKaye and Black flag vocalist Henry Rollins who were from Washington DC where Bad Brains had started as well. The Bad Brains were also a huge influence for the Beastie Boys. This collaboration ties into almost all of the bands I mentioned because they were almost all iconically shot at various times by photographer Glen E. Friedman. Glen shot a lot of great photos of Bad Brains and a few different shots were spliced together as the reference for this poster illustration. If you don’t know Glen’s work, and you should… go to burningflags.com.


    This Bad Brains Collaboration Print is signed by Glen, Shep, and all the original members of Bad Brains.


    Screen print is 24 x 18 inches, 3 colour process. Edition of 425, Only $120 Each

    Here is the latest work from Miss Bugs, she has a hot theme of super heroes going and it looks so awesome.

These beauties have 5 layer aerosol on top of 2 layer silk screen on to 2mm thin aluminum. Amazing work!! I look forward to adding her artwork to my collection.

    Jermaine Rogers' Upcoming 2 Print Releases




    Jermaine Rogers 'To Be Young Black And Gifted' Edition of 75 Size 20 x 20 Inches Jermaine Rogers 'To Be Young Black And Gifted' Edition of 75 Size 20 x 20 Inches

    Not really digging the imagery but i am digging the message behind these. Here are the details about the upper image "Concerning the 'Prison' imagery, Jermaine says, 'Excuse my indulgence in a few statistics for a moment. Note the following numbers from the US Dept. Of Justice, complied in an article that I read recently: Among men, blacks (28.5%) are about six times more likely than whites (4.4%) to be admitted to prison during their life. There are more black men are in prison in America than are in college. Look at those statistics again. Ask yourself, 'Why?'' Jermaine's latest 2 pieces will be available from JermaineRogers.com. He will be releasing them sometime between 3pm - 6pm EST on Thursday March 19th, 2009. They will both have an edition size of 75. Jermaine's thoughts about the lower image are as follows, "The title and imagery 'Execution' are rather striking, in lieu of certain current events in the world. Jermaine mentions, 'It's interesting how our society provides several ways of teaching a child to get very comfortable with the feel of a pistol in his hand. Every little detail of this image has it's own little meaning: I hope some of you will like it?"

    Just got word that Todd James will be releasing his first print on his on site, not sure if he is still cool with the P.O.W crew but this is a little different work from him. I like his older more whimsical playful images. This one seems a little menacing for my taste. Although it would look sickt beside a 3D piece!!! Click on the photos to be directed to his e-store.
