This is the archive for April 2011

I spotted this downtown recently. Seeing the work of Neo and Mandoe MAK around my neighborhood when I was a kid motivated me BIG TIME to try my hand at writing....


So I ended up doin' a panel (see here) for this art thing at the new Angel City Brewery. Info below:

This video is a great resource. Peep game!











These are some more examples of art in the streets I've found while rolling around Los Angeles. (Not sure I can call it "street art" since that term now refers to stuff found inside museums, galleries, private collections, etc. Following similar logic, then, maybe art found on the actual streets would have to be called "indoor art" or something like that.)

More of my previous street art curatorial work here.















I had the honor of visiting La Mano Press over the weekend. I've long been a fan of their work which combines the Mexican calavera tradition with contemporary social and political themes. It's no secret I heart printmaking, so I was super stoked when they asked Cache and I to collaborate on a print with them. SHyeah!!!


Painting debauchery with Gorgs, Owen, Tanner, and Midzt cameos...

Screens on deck at La Mano Press for my collab print with Cache...


Not too sure what the name of this exhibit implies (as I definitely do not consider myself "All City" by any stretch of the imagination,) but here's the 411:

Back in 2008, some of my stuff was published in Los Logos 4 by Gestalten, including early versions of what would become Cinta Adhesiva.

Nice photo re-cap of Hellion Gallery's Japan relief fundraiser here.





These are some of LeHumanBeing's collaborations with a group of preschoolers...

Mick Ebeling gave an inspirational presentation at TED earlier this year regarding Tempt, the Eyewriter Initiative, and getting things done. Peep game.


Must-see: Go to lahands.com by Slick and get with it. 'Nuff said!

Back in 2007 I participated in an exhibit at Crewest dedicated to the L.A. River. I hung a selection of my photographs with wooden clothespins and lined the floor with river rocks. (How conceptual of me...)


I did this for a Japanese disaster relief fundraiser. More info here.
