Sorry about that. I just copied the link they posted on Facebook.

But it did work all day yesterday, so I'm not sure what happened.

Who? You can DM me if you don't want to post in here. I remember going thru a thread a couple years ago with like 3 or so artists trying to figure out if they were fake. I think one was the aforementioned Trent Bruce. :/ such a waste of everyone's time, energy, and money. If you do art well, do something else. There will always be frauds of all types, it's just such a waste.

I like the fact that "bank tellr chic 5" is Hepner trying to defend himself by claiming he is a female employee that works at the bank Bob banks with. So she knows all the little facts about Bob, such as knowing the exact number of rock stars Bob hangs with at shows, and his trophy count.
I HUGE tell-take sign is Hepner's characteristic multiple commas he always uses when he posts online.
If you're friends with Bob on FB or familiar with his postings you will know those ",,,,," he always uses is unique to him. Not to mention his horrible spelling and grammar errors.

A screen cap of "bank teller chic 55" post from August 30th on that thread.

Oh, man, he threw out the "god bless".

Has he even addressed the fact that he blatantly ripped off other's artwork? That Betty & Veronica Cover is disgusting.

That was right before he was about to be exposed publicly. He knew what was about to happen.

Well, damn. I got a Hepner sketch with Rogue One Series 2. It was one of my favorites because it was so realistic - Saw Gerrera/Forest Whitaker black and white. Now I look at it and realize maybe it's too realistic. As a fan and private collector I feel betrayed. Had it at the top of the pile for that series; now it's at the bottom. I even found the picture online that was probably used. If anyone wants to explain to me how to upload a pic here or where to do it on Facebook, I'd be happy to do so. I even took it out last night and ran my fingers across it (something I never do with sketches). Nothing came off. Could be the ink was absorbed by the card, but it does seem suspicious considering the card has white accents over black ink.

Not sure what you mean by white accents over black ink, but a lot of artists do finishing touches with white gel pen or white out or something that a lot of times is more raised then the rest of the card.

Not saying it to defend this guy, but If that's what you're seeing they could have been added to make it look real, but that wouldn't be a sign a sketch card is fake in general.

If some of his sketches are fake, most likely they all are to some capacity. He adds the smears and streaks that go over a logo or whatever to give it the messier appearance of an actual painting.

By unique you mean grammatically incorrect and near illiterate.

I think it's funny the way he knows bank teller chick is that she's his bank teller... also see how I used ellipsis and not 3 bloody commas.

Not defending bob but some of his work -- especially his black and white work - appears to be legit. It's the photorealistic stuff that may be suspect.

The heads and helmets up there are different sizes because he printed it zoomed in. I can tell just from eyeballing it that if you changed the size of one and layer in on top of the other that guy, his helmet, the rocks behind his back, they would all line up to the tee.

The saga continues...because why would it stop? lol. New photos posted on facebook below...

Someone took one of Bobs "sketch cards" and tore it apart. See for yourself.

"Don't want to beat a dead horse or anything...but I wanted to believe this was real. It wasn't one of his "hyper realistic" ones but still lots of detail if you look closely.

Sadly, the top paper is exactly the same as the bottom COA. You can even see the actual card that was sandwiched between the two pieces of paper."






Thoughts? Discuss.

Wouldn't the paint have bled into the paper if it was real?
