Outside the Lines

'Outside the Lines' cover

It seems like a long time ago now. Souris Hong-Porretta reached out to Amy and I about this cool new project she was working on. After a lot of hard work the book, ‘Outside the Lines’ is real and Saturday night is the release party at LA MOCA. It’s still pretty crazy and awesome that I’ve been included in this project with the likes of Keith Haring (one of my all time favorites) and an amazing bunch of contemporary artists like: Shepard Fairey, Dave Kinsey, Kozyndan, Travis Milliard, Gary Baseman and way too many other awesome people to name. Learn more on the OTL Facebook page.

Support the project and pre-order one now on Amazon.

The press on this has been insane. Here’s a sampling…
The Huffington Post – “Might be the best thing we’ve ever seen”
Colossal – Six Great New Art Books
Giant Robot – Interview with Souris
USA Today – Win a copy of the book
LA I’m Yours – “will likely become a collector’s item”

The release party is Saturday, Sept. 21st, 2013 from 3-6PM. It’s free. Bring the kids, get your book signed (over 50 of the artists form the book will be there) and color. Amy and I will be there as well. A huge thanks goes out to Souris for including us in this dream.

Things I Don’t Need: Part 4, eBay(ed)

Ok, so some of the stuff that I have is silly and I don’t mind just giving it away. There is more of that coming soon. But other things are worth a few bucks and eBay is a great place to “give away” some junk also. The Apple coasters are sold already (sorry), my old GameBoy pocket (also sold), a nice Beastie Boys poster, my old Tivo and lastly a Skype phone that never really got used too much. Some of this is still up, but it’s really still about getting rid of the random stuff that I’ve held onto for way too long. –>my eBay
