12 Kinds of Kindness

March 24, 2016


If you missed it, Jessica & I released a new blog/social experiment in January called 12 Kinds of Kindness. We worked on it for over a year, and it all came to an end with our Trump protest outside of Trump Tower in NYC a couple weeks ago. It’s a 12-step program we created to work on our own selfishness and apathy. As two self-centered New Yorkers, we vowed to finish this resolution for 12 months and document the entire journey. We explored a lot of social issues and topics very personal to us such as bystander apathy, fatherlessness, and mental illness. We made 20 videos, and you can watch them on our YouTube.

Make sure to check out some of the microsites we created throughout the 12 steps: Trumpsults is an audio interaction of all the horrible insults Trump has made; Let’s Talk About Mental Health collects and shares stories to break down the stigma around mental illness; If Trump Wins asks one simple question; And My Dad Is takes a survey on fatherhood.

Show at Tictail

December 17, 2015

Happy holidays! On December 8th, I shared a show with the amazing and very talented Wasted Rita called LOVE & SEX at Tictail’s new holiday shop in the Lower East Side. We had a mix of new and old writings for sale, and most of them are still there all month. We also did this awesome wheat paste wrap of our work just outside the store, which is up all month, too.

I have these and other new prints on my online store now.

Live drawing in Italy

October 28, 2015

Bye for now, Milan! I had a great time live freestyle drawing at the EXPO for Dalla Corte, an Italian espresso manufacturer. I drew the same mural 8 hours straight for three days in a row, every night painting it back to black. And I definitely had the best espresso of my life.

Mural for CuratorLA

September 23, 2015


I recently created a mural for a new fashion concept store in Beverly Hills, CA called CuratorLA. The writing is something I wrote for my girlfriend, which was pulled from my Memories of a Girl I Never Knew series that I started on Instagram last year. Thanks to the awesome Julia Parris for helping me for 13 hours straight on location! And check out the cool video Jeremy made of the process.

Colette exhibition in Paris

February 17, 2015

A couple weeks ago I had an opening exhibition in Paris of my Instagram series “Memories of a Girl I Never Knew” at Colette. For those who don’t know Colette, it’s a very popular concept store that is a one-of-a-kind Parisian institution showcasing the latest fashion, gadgets, sneakers, books, fragrances, design, etc. I have 15 pieces from my “Memories” series exhibiting and selling online all of February, along with mugs, t-shirts, postcards, and lighters. I also wrote a couple of my stories on the walls in the store, and I had a 40 Days of Dating book signing at the opening, too. I was just in Paris a couple months ago, as my Ford car was displaying at the Paris Motor Show, and it was such an honor to come back to see my little writing series that I started last summer on my Instagram come to life in such an influential place like Colette.

Read about the series and see more pictures here. Prints are selling at 30” x 30” (76cm x 76cm). You can buy the prints and other products online here.
