Obey Giant Headlines

Pablo

Pablo is the son of our friends Jeff and Jo Ann. He died of cancer on Saturday, just a few days after his sixth birthday. As parents it is impossible for me and Amanda to imagine facing what Jeff, Jo Ann, and Pablo faced courageously. There is a moving diary of Pablo’s battle with cancer at getwellpablo.blogspot.com. Yes, we all know that cancer affects a huge number of people, but what you see at this blog is a very compelling demonstration that cancer can strike anyone, any age, and no amount of love can cure what science has no cure for yet. People like Pablo remind us why cancer research is so important. You can find out more and make a donation to the Pablove Foundation here: www.pablove.org/donate.html.

We miss you Pablo.

Blackbooks make amazing laser-cut stencils. I have been using them to cut my custom patterns that are too intricate to cut by hand. They are also great designers with a lot of stock stencil art available, and they do custom design work. Check out their site. www.blackbookstencils.com

Apologies, Apologies, Apologies…

We have been promoting the new Arkitip issue but embarrassingly we forgot to promote a very important person. I want to apologize to Geoff Hargadon who shot all the outdoor Obey photos in Miami and Boston. Geoff has done an amazing job documenting my work on the streets and he has generously given me access to his photo archive. Without Geoff’s pictures, the new Arkitip would be pretty sparse. Thank you so much for your help, Geoff, and please forgive our oversight in not crediting you in the issue. To check out Geoff’s work go to www.not-rocket-science.com.

Arkitip Issue No. 0051: Shepard Fairey

I have known Scott, the creator of Arkitip for ten years when he was on issue 2. I was in issue 3 and I later contributed writing to a few other issues. The magazine started off only black and white, but has evolved into a very beautiful and sophisticated publication. I am very proud to be the featured artist in Arkitip 51. The issue includes current exclusive content from my indoor and outdoor work for the Boston ICA as well as a large selection of my newest fine art. There is an extensive interview with me by Simon Steinhardt and a great essay by ICA curator Pedro Alonzo. The magazine is packaged in a premium  box with hand placed stickers on the outside. The magazine itself is perfect bound and has a die-cut cover. There is also a magazine sized, one color signed and numbered version of the Obey Eyeball print. The run is limited to 5,000. Check it out.
