4. How crazy is this one?

This was our most popular painting of last year and we can see why!!! Our good buddy @bigcutlery commissioned this one for his grandpa, Herb. We simply asked Heavy J to include Herb in a Curb Your Enthusiasm painting and this beautiful image was the end result!!! We originally weren’t going to, but after a ton of requests decided to ask Herb if he’d mind us making it into a print. To our delight he was into it and now you can idolize Herb, Bernie and Susie happy together in your home or workplace! ••••• We just added this and 5 more beautiful new prints to our Shopify store!

Aren’t those awesome? They’re definitely different than American movie posters, that’s for sure.
