random ramblings... having just looked at some picture.. other artists come to mind.. not FAILE. its a bit confusing really. I like a few of them .. they are wife / kid friendly.. its almost like they intentionally did some gallery / major auction friendly artwork. twenty years from now if FAILE is still a major brand it will be stuff like this at auction .. not bad seeds ..etc. but.. is that really the point of FAILE going forward. these are beautiful ..and confusing.. and maybe that is why they will last. i dont think FAILE would have become famous if they would ahve started with this style 10years ago.. but it is what it is now...
Not liking this new direction at all. Reminds me of a bad copy of Miss Bugs
Gotta say I agree.. doesn't seem to make any conceptual sense at all. Lost a lot of its "art" for me. Painterly backdrops, cut out "pin ups" and fragments of faile.. can't make any sense of it. Might just be me of course.

Thought it was all pretty excellent! Smacks slightly if Eelus or Paul Insect, more than Miss Bugs I'd say... But with splashes of old Faile thrown in. Actually liked the blue print more than the White, by quite a way!
Got a signed one. Love the new artwork massively and the mosaics are the kind of thing to commit crimes to get. Overall my def favourite artists. Didn't get to meet them. Wanted a book cover but all sold out. Am going to save to get an original price next year. Well done faile!!!!
