Hello! Welcome to the News section. Check back often for updates.
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.
After many requests, you can now buy prints from my Instagram writing I’ve done over the past year, including select pieces from my Memories of a Girl I Never Knew series and my #instatherapy_tim writing. Thanks to Birk Nilson and my friends at Tictail for helping me get this up so fast!

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.

Last month we announced that you can pre-order the 40 Days of Dating book! It officially comes out on January 20th. The number one question we had from fans was: What happened after day 40? That question is answered—and in addition to the entire blog—the book contains 304 pages, 60K new words, new art, essays by others, our own diary entries for up to a year after the experiment ended, and so much more. This was a real labor of love for us, working on and off on it for about 6 months. We really wanted to wrap ourselves in the context of today’s dating culture, and it was such an exciting process. Early pre-orderers got signed bookplates from us and custom cards we made and a dart to throw at our heads (we’ll be doing another round of those soon!) You can pre-order the book here: http://fortydaysofdating.com

Fun to see my cover for Wolf in a White Van on a bunch of ‘Best of’ lists for 2014! It’s a great book by John Darnielle that I was lucky enough to design thanks to FSG’s art director, Rodrigo Corral. Check it out on these lists, along with all the other great covers of 2014.
