Cover up your Bulls!

The iconic Wall Street Bull sculpture got covered up by a knitted pink/purple camo sweater by Ageta Olek. These knit bombs have been growing in popularity and I love seeing more stuff being covered in it. I bet its stinks though after being ouside for all this time. Sadly it got taken down already.

COD Black Ops

COD: Black Ops has been my main distraction from work since it came out. Theirs nothing like launching a tomahawk across the screen or an explosive tipped arrow from your crossbow. Check it out.
The 1st two are not Black Ops, but its so damn awesome I had to include it. This was based of the Modern Warfare 2 game.

Bottoms up!

This is a chilling short film called Alma. Can't say much, just watch it and enjoy.

The Simpsons

I have been a Simpsons fan since the first time I saw the series. I made sure I was home every night to catch the reruns in the Philippines. I even owned a few bootleg Bart t-shirts back in the 90s. There was no other show that was like them. Literally every tv show now cant be original because the Simpsons already done it. So they have no choice, but to even just get crazier. Like Family Guy, Aqua Teen, South Park, etc.
Right now the Simpsons are very different from the best seasons (IMHO) were 3 - 6. Those seasons had the classic episdoes every one remembers. Right now though even though being so different the animation has been stepped up so much better. This year was awesome they had Bansky direct an opening sequence. Screenshots below are my 2 favorite parts. Panda slave labor hauling Bart dolls and Unicorns helping to make the DVD holes in the Simpsons season discs. They also did Simpson puppets with Katy Perry. Check out this dudes flickr for some awesome behind the scenes pics! Double score!

Blackstar Warrior

If Star Wars was a blackploitation film starring Lando. The baddest mother (shut your mouth) in the galaxy!

 Idk who this is
 Forgot this girl's name. The box is made of resin and there are lil honey combs stuck on it. It was awesome. Definitely a great idea and all around great combo.

I've known Chris since the first year I started getting into Sticker Art in 2003. He's been doing it much longer than any one else I've met and I haven't met any one else that's this dedicated to the world of Sticker Art. He sure knows how to load up an envelope full of great stickers! If you're in the area, please check out his stuff!

"Sneakers" @ Vincent Michael Gallery 12/10/2010

Friday, December 10 · 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Here are the shoes I did for the show called "Good Times". Just remembering childhood and the careless fun times that went on. Got lucky in finding some awesome bright shoelaces thanks to my girlfriend for acquiring them. I also did a canvas and Elizabeth the gallery manager asked me to paint a wall. Which I was very happy to oblige. I really miss painting big and furthermore I miss having a constant supply of paint at my disposal. Hopefully new projects can happen and that would be fixed! Click read more to see a preview of the wall and the canvas that goes along with the shoe. 

Setting up at Masthead for "Public School"

Went to Masthead early to sign and number the prints for the show and help set up. JP is a mad scientist when it comes down to silk screening posters. He was a complete genius in executing the appropriate techniques to make this collaboration look awesome.

3 year old finger paints TMNT Leonardo

Ok I give up, this kid is pure genious. Stippling fingerpaint at 3?!?! I gotta try finger painting EL TORO b/c this kid clearly knows what is hip and hot. Look at the pumpkin in the beginning. It has shading and everything. I think I started shading my stuff at like 8. Before that it was all flat colors.

 This dude is clearly awesome cuz he's rockin' the "Summertime" Tee Collaboration I did with Abakus this past Summer. He tweeted this to me, I forgot his address though. If you're reading this, send it over.
Fellow Sticky Bandit Question Josh
I've been a fan of this guy for years and would always be excited to see him MC'ing a party I'm going to. It's definitely dope to see him rocking one of my tees.
