Hello! Welcome to the News section. Check back often for updates.
Jessica and I created an anti-Trump / Pro-Hillary voting Initiative called I’m With Her Because He’s Crazy. Visit the website here.
We did two things: Kids our the future, and they’re listening to his horrible rhetoric, so we asked kids what they thought about Trump. Pretty amazing and telling responses, watch the video below. And secondly, with the idea that Trump only loves himself, we went out on the streets with two Trump lookalikes who made out with each other in places like Union Square and in front of Trump Tower. We passed out brochures and stickers to passerby’s. Also, check us out in the Huffington Post.
I’m excited to start a partnership today with Samsung & T-Mobile, where I’ll be live drawing across the country on their new Galaxy Note 7 phone for the next three weeks. We’ll be at pop-up stores in six cities: NYC, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, Los Angles, & Seattle. It starts in NYC today & tomorrow at South Street Seaport. Stop by and get free posters of my art and fake tats! You can follow the journey here.
I will continue to update my website with new work, but I don’t consistently post on this feed anymore. To follow my real “news” feed, then follow my Instagram for all recent projects, murals, speaking gigs, workshops, collabs, travel… and selfies! And of course my writing, which I recently put up on two Tumblrs, respectively: Instatherapy and Memories of a Girl I Never Knew.
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.
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.
We had a lot fun creating art for Oreo’s limited-edition “Colorfilled” holiday packs, where consumers can color in the packaging digitally online. When you’re done coloring it in, the packs will be shipped to you. Try it out and send your friends a package here: shop.oreo.com

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.
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.
