Hello! Welcome to the News section. Check back often for updates.
Londoners! I am currently part of a group show celebrating this year’s Olympics for KK Outlet, a multifunctional office/gallery/bookshop in London.
Six teams, working in teams of four, passes artwork to another who adds their contribution, and passes the work on again, sometimes working with shared themes. The insanely talented Keetra Dean Dixon started the relay off, and asked if she could pass the baton to me. I then passed my artwork/baton to my buddy, William Morrisey, who then passed his artwork/baton to Ed Nacional. Awesome crew!
My piece is below. From KK Outlet’s website:
Keetra Dean Dixon began a piece called Believers, “Every athlete’s journey has to start with faith – selfbelief and belief in those around them.” Timothy Goodman received Dean Dixon’s piece and followed it up with Doubters, “Keetra’s piece was a fragmentation of letters that spelled out the word ‘Believers’. Playing off her system, I created a piece that manifested into the word ‘Doubters’. Athletes, like most of us, struggle with both belief and doubt simultaneously.”

I created a pattern for the San Francisco-based clothing shop Nooworks, inspired by my favorite thing in the Bay Area (painted ladies). In turn, I partnered with Collective Good, and reached out to The Imagine Bus Project—a non-profit organization that brings art programs to children in underserved communities. Together, we asked a group of 50 kids from local elementary schools to draw their favorite thing about San Francisco.
On Saturday, April 7th, join us at Nooworks to see the clothing collaboration, purchase some unique artwork from kids in the Bay Area, have a glass of wine, and learn how The Imagine Bus Project is changing lives by creating sustainable art programs.
All proceeds from the sale of the kid’s artwork support The Imagine Bus Project.

I was asked to contribute some work to a new exhibition at Northeastern University called “We The Designers: Reframing political issues in the Obama era.” It’s an honor to have my work sit next to a group of incredible designers who I admire.
On top of that, I was also asked to contribute to a book that Brian Collins was doing for the show. He asked 55 designers to visually respond to 55 thesis’ that he and his team called, “The Triumph of the Commons.” A beautiful book designed by Matt Luckhurst. Thanks to Brian for this!
And what would a political show be if not for some controversy. Thanks to the awesome curator of the show, Thomas Starr, for asking me to be a part of this!
If you’re in the Boston area, you should definitely check it out.

16: The expansion and extension of play is then, the essence of wealth. John Ruskin pointed this out more than a hundred years ago in discussing the etymology of value: “Valor, from valere, to be well or strong; strong, life (if a man), or valiant; strong for life (if a thing), or valuable. To be ‘valuable,’ therefore, is to ‘avail toward life.’ ... For wealth, instead of depending merely on a ‘have,’ is thus seen to depend on a ‘can.’ ... And what we reasoned of only as accumulation of material, is seen to demand also accumulation of capacity…. Wealth is, therefore, ‘The Possession of the Valuable by the valiant.’”

My Ace Hotel mural was included in this year’s AIGA 365 Exhibition. This is a big honor, and I’m particulary excited to have something artful sit alongside a collection of amazing cross-media design work. (Although I hear it wasn’t included in the exhibition, among others’ work. Interesting.) Anyway, make sure to check out the show in NY!
