Dave Navarro Mania TV

I saw Jane’s Addiction open for the Ramones in 88 and I’ve been a big fan ever since. Dave Navarro invited me on his TV show on Mania and we had a great time discussing art , music and politics. It airs this Thurs. at 8PM (I think). Check it out.

The show will air on May 8th at 8pm here:

Obama Bootleg Tee

I did not design this shirt. I saw it in an ad in the back of Rolling Stone and contacted the company to see if they were donating any of the proceeds to Obama’s campaign. They are, so if you dig an Obey/Obama mashup you can get it at moewampum.com.

SSI Print

I met John Goff in 1997 while I was living in San Diego. He liked my work and offered to help me screen print. I was broke so I could not afford a drying rack for the prints. John would lay the prints out to dry on the floor He would never accept money, but only asked for posters(which were virtually worthless at the time) in return for his efforts. John was easy to work with because once he discovered we both liked the Melvins, he started bringing great records over. I got all the Kraftwerk albums from John and realized that he was really into electronic music. Now, 11 years later, John’s love of electronic music collides with me owing him a favor. John has an electronic music project with his brother Will called SSI (Sonic Solutions Incorporated) and asked me to design an SSI poster. You can check out and buy the posters here. John is also an audio whiz and has been helping me re-edit some songs to DJ with. He is also going to help me engineer a rock mix CD that I will release sometime in the fall.

OBEY::OBAMA NYC

My friends were cool enough to offer a spot on their studio building in NYC for a large Obama piece. It was painted in LA and shipped to Brooklyn to be installed by our friend Kyle Oldoerp, who also took the photo. He has taken a lot of great shots of my work on the street over the years. Kyle’s work is featured prominently in a new book I have coming out, E PLURIBUS VENOM, documenting my big NY show last summer. The book will hit stores early June. By the way, contrary to what the NY Post has to say, I have never been paid by the Obama campaign to do anything for them. All of the Obama stuff has been self-financed… don’t believe the hype!
