YAY ! I'm not sure if it's good to be back home or if it's good to have home back.
Anyways, long live O-Review !

Looks like quite a big work, but I've never been a fan of that type of customs.

BTW, I don't really get the point of copying Tater's job here. No offense, that's just to understand the process.

Is that just to say "look, I can do the same !"

Sure, anybody could draw A Picasso-like portrait. But that doesn't mean there's the same intent and artwork history behind. And that's why Picasso paints are so absurdly expensive.

I 100% prefer when you create and do original stuff. That's when you're at your best.

I see. And figured there would be a degree of "bashing", which I don't mind. 1 thing to. remember, I didn't copy them. These are holbrook not frogs, they are done with slight variations to avoid any potential for grief, and they were done for a major collector who has a few ap I believe. To each his own for sure, and everyone doesn't like everything that I or any others do.

Funny though that level of grief isn't expressed over an atmos theme, blends theme, fade/splatter, Rapha, Night Camo, Blue Camo or any other similar style is done. Or even worse, when images are printed and stuck to something and called "art". Luckily things are what they are and the respective owner is pleased. That's the important part. Would I reproduce them on a frog, no. So have fun with that. And yes, I too have more fun doing my original things. Maybe I'll just charge $1000 plus (not including the glasses) like he does so I don't have to do everyone else's requests.. - DrChop


No bashing Josh. No bashing. I just prefer when you go creative and that's what I expressed.

I'm not going to argue with you. I'm not here for that.
I wasn't a big fan of Atmos stuff, nore blends or Rapha.
Splatter? Yes sir, please. Do a lot of variations, even some chrome ones (crazy stuff !). You improved the original thing. And I don't remember you wear comparing your work to Oakley's. It was just a matter of doing something Oakley was not proposing anymore or had never proposed on some frames.
Other types of pattern ? Again, yes please, when it's to propose something not already done.
Blue, night, pink camo, ... you name it. Put it on some badass model and that's a go.

When I think "DrChop", I immediately think about that USA Flag Chrome Monster Dog. Sure, there was chrome dogs before. But you've put it to another level.


If those Tater Holbrook are a special order, it's a different story.
Your customer will be happy because he'll have a tater like thing.
Still, he'll see them as Tater holbrook, not DrChop holbrook.

Put your stuff at prices you want. But price is not about how good you are at something (otherwise, you would already be fucking rich for your paint jobs), it's how hype your work is in the Art sphere. If you think your stuff can sell for 1000$ why wouldn't you do it ? You do one pair and sell it for the price of 5 or 6 paint jobs. How much time you'll save or how much money you'll stock !
Why don't you do it ?

Awesome,
Thanks for sharing this, Scott and Dann :)

Ah ! So that's the book I had been talked about by the compagny who bought my photos :)

Now if only I could get my hands on one of those sets ...

Beautiful! Congrats! I was contemplating getting one. How much do they retail for? - Oak

850 euros.
Which is pretty affordable compared to how rare they are and the collector potential.

Found an almost brand new pair of Caia Koopman Ravishing locally.
Good to have that one back in the collection (ex-wife took her's when she left).

Titanium clear should have had more attention from Oakley.
I wish I could have it on more sunglasses.


Got that poster recently. A PW shot with it seemed natural to me :)
