Help the Honest Politician Crash the Most Expensive Senate Race of All Time

As many of you know, I think campaign finance reform is essential to restoring democracy. Here is a great video that illustrates why current campaign finance structure has compromised and corrupted quality lawmaking and governing. I’m going to do some art for this project, so stay tuned! Also, donate to their attempt to disrupt campaign donations as they currently are structured… I love the irony!    -Shepard

RIP Tommy Ramone

I met Tommy Ramone several times through Linda Ramone, who is a friend of mine. While he was only on the first three Ramone’s records, Tommy was a producer and an important part of the enduring sound of The Ramones. It’s sad that all of the original Ramones are gone. I may be doing a collaboration with The Ramones estate in the future, I’ll keep you posted. RIP Tommy.

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!
