This last month of releases has been an exciting one. I love sharing my new art prints and new concert posters as society is beginning to open again and live music returns. Thank you for your support of my art. I appreciate it!
I’ve never been one to brag about my efforts to fight bots and flippers. It’s my belief that this hobby should be fun. I’ve battled the bots for some time. There has been a rising tide of bot buyers and flippers, and I am doing my best to discourage this activity. Over the years, I’ve repeatedly worked with website engineers to block robot IPs. I’ve returned countless orders from suspicious purchases and insta-flippers. But the flippers and bots are cunning and hide behind new names, changing IP addresses, and use ever-advancing software.
Take note that on release of a new print, there are literally thousands of people going for the same prints at the same time. Not everyone can score. They go very fast.
I am pleased with the lottery release of my Grateful Mahalo print. I hope you are pleased as well. The lottery, conducted by my partners at Spoke Art Gallery, helped to make the prints accessible to real fans.
(In fact, this is the first I’ve shared the Grateful Mahalo print or spoken of it on social media or on my website since it was first released by Fans Live, and Bill Kreutzmann. I didn’t want to unintentionally alert the bot buyers.)
All winners have been notified. My apologies to those who did not win (if you did not receive a win notification by now – you’re hereby notified that you were not randomly chosen).
Congratulations to the winners! And again thank you for your support!
