TOUR KICK-OFF FOR THE SHRINE/DIRTY FENCES WEST COAST WORSHIP TOUR

In late 2014, Huf and OBEY co-sponsored a European tour with the bands The Shrine, Dirty Fences and Death Alley. The Bless Off tour was comprised of 30 shows in 32 days in 13 countries. 3 photographers (Dennis Duijnhouwer, Olivia Jaffe and Rick Erfmann) covered the shows and the travels and this zine was created. We’ll be releasing the zine at the kick off of a US tour with the bands on April 3, 2015 at The Paper agency in LA.

How teachers are funding gun companies against their will • The Real NRA #4 • BRAVE NEW FILMS

Breaking News: California teachers demand their money be taken out of gun companies. 

Two years after the largest teachers’ pension fund in the world, CalSTRS, voted to sell off all investments in firearm companies, they still have $500 million tied up with guns through Cerberus Capital Management.  Even after this vote to divest, Cerberus has kept the teachers’ money invested in gun manufacturer Bushmaster/Remington Outdoor Inc. – the company that made the gun used in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.


Join with teachers to say enough is enough! Don’t let teachers’ dollars fund another school shooting!

Justin Peck’s Heatscape opens today!

The Miami City Ballet opens today with Justin Peck’s Heatscape featuring my set design. I’m a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg who collaborated with Merce Cunningham, so the idea of collaborating with a choreographer in the same vein appealed to me. Beyond the historical association I mentioned, I’m a big fan of putting my work in front of people using unexpected platforms. The cross-pollination that can happen between the ballet and street art audiences is exciting to me. If you’re in the Miami area be sure to check out the show! – Shepard

The Music of David Lynch

I’m a big fan of David Lynch’s movies, art, and music so I was excited to be asked to create an image for the David Lynch Foundation, his Transcendental Meditation organization. This is the second time that I was asked to make something for the foundation, I also did the image for the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert featuring Paul McCartney at Radio City Music Hall back in 2009.
I think David is a unique personality as well as someone with a unique look.  It is great to try to capture him in an illustration because he is such an icon.  This is a solid organization to support, so if you purchase the print consider it as a win-win, you get a poster and support a worthwhile cause.
The lineup for “The Music of David Lynch” is awesome, so check it out next Wednesday, April 1 at The Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles. There are a very limited number of the VIP tickets left.  If you’re interested check it out here.
