Obey Giant Headlines

NASA PRoject

I worked on a video for my friend Sam Spiegel’s(AKA Squeak E Clean) N.A.S.A project. The song is called “Money” and is a collaboration between Sam and David Byrne of The Talking Heads and Chuck D. of Public Enemy. The song is great and the video turned really well. Syd the animator did a great job. Check it out.

Welcome Spencer Elden!

So we have a new intern, Spencer Elden who is the baby from the cover of Nirvana’s “Nevermind”. Spencer is 17 now and it tuns out that he is not only a fan of Obey, but a good artist as well. He has been helping out cutting stencils and working on tee shirt ideas. I think Spencer has a bright future and if he keeps working, the next time he re-creates the “Nevermind” cover they’ll have to lure him with at least a $20 bill.

Freedom Fries

These posters were spotted on the streets of Paris. I guess France respects the U.S. again, and Freedom fries can be called French fries again… except in Paris Texas.

artsprojekt x obey skateboards


I first moved to California in 1996 to work with my friend and art and skateboarding role model Andy Howell. If you don’t know who he is, Andy founded New Deal Skateboards, Underworld Element (now Element), and Sophisto Clothing. Now Andy has started artsprojekt.com and is re-issuing some classic skate art, along with some new boards. We are re-releasing some Obey classics, and have added some new boards into the mix.  Enjoy.

Love Unites?

This is a response to an email we received today that addresses some reactions we get every now then regarding our opinions on Ebay.  Below is Shepard’s response.  After the jump is the original Anonymous email.  If anyone has any questions about sale policies and Ebay, click the links below.



I suspect you are mad because you were banned from the print sales for being a scum bag. We don’t ban people without proof, so don’t act like your name got picked out of a hat. The Obey Giant Ebay policy is based on us trying to make sure that the people who REALLY want a print get the print at the intended price rather than aftermarket price. I’m selling the prints at below market value to make them affordable to people who really like the art. I want fans to get a piece of art, not bottom feeders trying to turn a quick profit at the expense of real fans of the work. If you plan to Ebay a print, YOU are the one creating a discriminatory situation, because not everyone who can afford the original price of my prints can afford the Ebay price. You are calling me a racist? Are you kidding? I just promoted a (half)black guy for president for 9 months! I just did a collaboration with Public Enemy! I have no idea what race you are and I don’t care. But you are right, I am prejudiced… I’m prejudiced against those who profit off the suffering of others. It is disturbing that anyone would even CONSIDER Ebaying the Love Unites print.  The Obey Giant Ebay policy is the same for everyone. Do you think we want to be policing Ebay? Of course not, but we have to do it to protect the fans of the art  from parasites.
