LED ZEPPELIN – MOTHERSHIP

I was recently asked to do the package for Led Zeppelin’s two CD one DVD greatest hits package Mothership. Zep is one of my favorite bands of all time and if they aren’t one of yours, you need to check that your DNA is human. If my art is 1 percent as good as this band I’m in good shape. What I’m trying to say is that the opportunity for me to hitch a ride on the coat tails of such an influential band is an honor and a coup. I was also asked to make a limited run of screen prints. 400 to be exact, of which 100 are for sale on obeygiant.com and the rest will be sent out selectively by the band and label. One hand painted multiple on collage will be available at my Merry Karnowsky Gallery exhibition, IMPERFECT UNION, opening December 1st.

So Shepard and Crew have just returned from Shepard’s largest exhibition to date and to say that it was a success would be an understatement! Not only did Stolenspace facilitate a wonderful exhibition in an incredible space, Shep definitely left his mark on the entire city of London with over 30 spots claimed by OBEY. We couldn’t do it with out the help of the Stolenspace Fam – Rich, Eve, Beth, “Fightin” Tom, Kevin “Fo Sho”, Steve-o, “other” Tom, and all the intern help… We appreciate everything!

Oh, one more little thing… CHECK OUT THE NEW JUXTAPOZ! Shepard is featured on the cover and got a nice little interview to boot!
