Book signing at The Strand in NYC

I contributed a chapter to The Artist as Cultural Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life (amazon, library).

I’ll be reading a section and signing books at The Strand as part of the launch for the book. The book includes forty essays from artists who have successfully expanded their practice beyond the studio and become change agents in their communities.

FREE DESIGN: LIES

Near where I live, the fans of conspiracies and Republican demagoguery have put stickers on the guard rails of our highway off-ramps. That inspired me to design these stickers.

This design is an update of the “You Don’t Need It” stickers I made with Packard Jennings ten years ago.

I’m putting this design in the public domain – no copyright. I trust you to use them to reference things that are verified lies. I wouldn’t put them on someone elses car, because that’s not respectful, but I do think it’d be funny to get a Trump bumper sticker for your own car and put this next to it. (Please send photos!)

You can have your own made. Or if you just want to send me a few bucks and contact me with an address, I’ll put a few in the mail.

I have been designing others (like this) as the current Republican administration has given me sticker fever and will be posting more soon. Join the mailing list.

Speaking at eyeo Festival

I’ll be speaking at the 2017 eyeo Festival this year. You can learn more and register.

About the Eyeo Festival

Since its inception in 2011, the team behind the Eyeo Festival has been inspired by the notion that this decade presents an exceptionally exciting time to be interested in art, interaction, and information. The way we experience all three is changing. The way all three interact and overlap is quickly evolving. Easier access to powerful tools and technologies continues to increase. What data is, where it comes from, and how we utilize it, looks different than ever before.

What can we do with it all? What can’t we do? Artists, designers and coders build and bend technology to see what’s possible. What’s next with interaction, what’s revealed by the data. Eyeo brings together the most intriguing and exciting people in these arenas today.

We start with a day of pre-festival workshops and the 3rd edition of the Eyeo Summit – this year’s theme is Code+Resistance. That night we kick off Eyeo with keynotes and a mixer. Then it’s three days of inspirational talks, demos, and labs and plenty of opportunities to connect with people whose extraordinary creations are pushing the envelope. The line up is amazing. A cast of more than 40 brilliant individuals creates one amazing collection of talent and insight. Add yourself to the mix, and it just gets better. Converge to Inspire – Indeed.

Free Design: Respect is an American Value

I designed this tonight as a 3×4 inch sticker and ordered 500. I literally took a line from this article in making this.

You’re welcome to use the graphics and order your own stickers. I like to use VGKids and StickerGuy but any company should be able to use these files. They’re scalable if you want to make posters or whatever.

I’m putting this design in the public domain – no copyright.
