Wall Street Reform & Campaign Finance Reform Issues Still Loom

I know these issues might not be exciting to ponder, but Wall Street reform and campaign finance reform are inter-related and crucial in terms of fighting the greed of the powerful and restoring basic fairness in our society. It is very worth reading the article below. Thanks for caring.

Mustard & Navy Arrow Letterpress

The Mustard and Navy Arrow letterpress is a new iteration of one of my first Russian Constructivist inspired prints that I made in 1996. I used to screen print 100 prints to put up on the street and 100 to sell, but back then no one was buying my prints so I put most of them up on the street. I always liked the image a lot, and it is a crucial part of my evolution, so I thought it would be nice to make as a letterpress. Snag it now if you missed the screen print in 1996!  -Shepard

Fox News, Ten Years Later

If you have seen “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism,” you know how biased toward the right wing Fox News is. Surprisingly, some people are still not aware how far from “fair and balanced” Fox is. Share this video link to help make EVERYONE aware of Fox’s agenda. Also, Brave New Films, the folks behind Outfoxed are constantly working on similar issues-driven projects and need your support. Make a donation to keep their work going!

PEACE TREE MURAL COMPLETE // LOS ANGELES

The crew and I finished the Peace Tree mural on The Line Hotel yesterday afternoon. I’m very happy with how the mural turned out and how it works with the building’s architecture. The Line has a bunch of cool art in the interior as well as a great D*Face mural on the exterior, so I’m grateful to be situated in a bit of a creative oasis. Thanks to The Line team for the assistance and hospitality, to Jon Furlong for the great photos, and to Nic Bowers, Z Bomit, and Rob Zagula for the help painting!

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS X Cross My Heart Hope To Die // July 26

I love the intersection of art and music. They are both great alone, but even more powerful when they are creatively intertwined. Our next art show at Subliminal features Cross My Heart Hope To Die, an awesome art and music collective that includes Andrew Kline of hardcore band Strife, DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, and Sean Bonner, an artist, designer, and Internet activism guru. These guys collaborated on music, art, video, and public installations all with the intention of bringing wonder and excitement back into discovering music and art. I’m a big fan of all of these guys as individuals, but the collaboration between the three takes them into unique territory. Check out more on their art show Vita E Morte here!  They will be performing live, so the show will be an audio visual extravaganza not to be missed!

CHECK OUT “THE TIBET SOLUTION”, A VIDEO ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE TIBETAN CULTURE

I have donated art to the  Art for Tibet fundraiser for the past few years and some of the funds this year helped to create a cool animated video about Tibet called “The Tibet Solution.”  It does a really good job of breaking down the issue and explaining in a very simple way how we can fix it. If you care about human rights and protecting the special Tibetan culture, please check the video and site. Please spread the word too!

PEACE TREE MURAL IN KOREATOWN, LOS ANGELES

Today kicked off an eight city mural tour for me and my crew, starting in Los Angeles. I’m putting up the Peace Tree image on The Line Hotel in Koreatown, which is a theme that is a constant in my work.  Roy Choi, who I’m a fan of, has his restaurant Pot in the hotel and it’s cool to be in the same place.  The Line is only a couple blocks from our old studio space in the Wiltern Theater so it’s nice to be back in the neighborhood!

MONICA CANILAO, BORN FROM RUINS CLOSES THIS SATURDAY @ SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS

Saturday is the last day of the Monica Canilao show at our gallery SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS.  She did an amazing installation that was super labor intensive.  The intricacies and weight of her installations really don’t translate in photographs, you have to see it person.  Check it out!

OBEY UK AT GLASTONBURY MUSIC FESTIVAL

My friend Simon Holmes and his crew from Obey UK  www.obeyclothing.co.uk were cool enough to install some art for me at the Shangri-La/Shangri-Hell area of the Glastonbury Music Festival. I was in the company of other awesome artists including Stanley Donwood, who does all the art for Radiohead and Thom Yorke, and is coincidentally part of The Provocateurs show I curated for Chicago – http://www.artalliance.com/! I love the intersection of art and music, so I’m always excited to display my art where great music is happening. I just wish I could have been there myself to catch Arcade Fire, Metallica, Black Keys, De La Soul. Nick Lowe, Jack White, Pixies, etc…!

SHEPARD ILLUSTRATES THIS MONTH’S STAND MAGAZINE FOR ACLU, FEATURING EDWARD SNOWDEN

I believe in what Edward Snowden stands for as a whistleblower and as an American.  Snowden uncovered the massive surveillance program of the Obama Administration and his actions should be seen as wholly patriotic.  Snowden knew the risks of his actions, but courageously exposed himself and more importantly exposed the United States government.  I was happy to work with the ACLU on this month’s cover and story in STAND magazine which showcases my illustration of Edward Snowden.  There’s also a quick Q&A with me on page 45 if you’re interested.  Check out this video to learn more – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJyp6_4P_6Y
