Betas

A while back I was asked by the endlessly talented Gary Kordan to help design a wall on the set of Betas, the Amazon show he is the production designer for. This video shows off him and his team of miracle workers building the set from the ground up (literally). You can see them applying my design about 2:11 in.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but if Gary and his crew were working on it, you can be sure it would finished in 30.

Promotion

I hit a billboard in the desert. It's not my best work but beats that brown paint job.

Partying Officially

Hello friends! Come to the official release party for my book at Lab Art THIS SATURDAY! It should be pretty fun... at least for those of you who like JET PACKS, THROWING STARS, HOT LAVA, TELEPORTATION MACHINES, LASERS, FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS, BATMAN, QUICKSAND, GEODES and RIDING T-REXes! None of those things will be there, but if you're the kind of person who likes those things, I like your style and think we'll get along just fine.

APRIL 19TH, 12PM-4PM
LAB ART
217 S La Brea Ave, 
Los Angeles, CA 90036


 

With the purchase of a book at LAB ART, you get a free signed poster! Already have a book? I'm giving away postcards to everyone!

Walk This Way

Had an amazing time at Art Walk last night! Got to meet some truly awesome people and make some new friends. It's a privilege to speak into so many of your lives and one I don't take for granted. I always feel weird calling people "fans" and because of the nature of what I do, I always feel a connection beyond that of a fan relationship - kindred spirits feels more appropriate, or comrades in arms. Huge thanks to the DTLA Artwalk team and for all those who stopped by. Next stop LAB ART for the "official" book launch party!


Also- here's an interview I did for the event!

Downtown LA Art Walk!

I'll be there this Thursday as the featured artist! 634 S. Spring St. Los Angeles, CA 90013!

Epic

Logan: I thought our story was epic, you know, you and me. 
Veronica: Epic how? 
Logan: Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined, bloodshed. EPIC. But summer's almost here, and we won't see each other at all. And then you leave town... and then it's over. 
Veronica: Logan... 
Logan: I'm sorry about last summer. You know, if I could do it over... 
Veronica: Come on. Ruined lives? Bloodshed? You really think a relationship should be that hard? 
Logan: No one writes songs about the ones that come easy. 

THE THOUSAND WORDS TOUR -- LA DATES!

Mark your calendars! I'm hitting the road! More dates will be announced shortly- but these are the LA events. I'll be giving out a different free gift at each event and anyone is welcome to come to multiple events! SPREAD THE WORD(S)!

The First Law of Nature

"What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly - that is the first law of nature."

- Voltaire

Imagine All The People

"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one"

- John Lennon

Soy Morley

I sent this poster to my friend who teaches Spanish at a public school in Maryland. Now if his students do their homework, hopefully they'll be able to decipher a message that may serve them in the years to come.

Don't Worry...

...and even though all things appear to the contrary, it's going like clockwork.

Matchbox Recovery

Check out this video response to my Matchbox Project by Lewla and JonJonJin! It's super cool to have my work interact with other creative people like this. Just another example of art bringing people together. Art's pretty great in that way. Wouldn't it be awesome if I was just talking about some guy named Art? Maybe I am. Maybe I am.

Stand Right

"I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong."

- Abraham Lincoln

Complete Emotions

"I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past."

- Virginia Woolf

From The Streets

Word from M Contemporary in Sydney is that the From The Streets show opening went very well. Thanks to any friends in Australia who made it out!

POSTSECRET & MORLEY: LIVE AT ARTISPHERE!

Hey: Maryland/DC/Virginia friends! I'm super pumped to announce this event on May 30th with Frank Warren of PostSecret at Artisphere! For those of you who don't know, PostSecret is an amazing, ongoing art project led by Frank Warren and has been a huge creative inspiration to me over the years. Frank wrote the foreword to my forthcoming book and if you've ever been to one of his events, you know that they are not to be missed. We'll each be there sharing stories and videos related to our work and I'll be doing a live paste collage to music provided by the lovely and talented Kiara Lanier. Tickets are 10 bucks and a portion of the proceeds are going to an awesome charity ImAlive.org.
