The Cruise

Timothy "Speed" Levitch (born 1970) is an American actor, tour guide, speaker, author and voice actor. The name "Speed" was given to him by a childhood friend in high school . Levitch has appeared in multiple films and has had his poetic and philosophical works published in books and periodicals.

In 1992 he received his tour guide license from the Central Park Conservancy. He later took a position with Apple and Gray Line Tours as a tour bus guide. He soon attracted a cult following, due not only to his fast talking style, but also for his obvious love of his native city and passionate philosophical ideas.
Levitch's fame was spread beyond NYC when he became the subject of the 1998 documentary The Cruise.
WATCH IT NOW! He's amazing!
He was also in Waking Life and School of Rock.

Pablo&Sabina 'pour toi mon amour'


For You My Love

I went to the market, where they sell birds
and I bought some birds
for you
my love
I went to the market, where they sell flowers
and I bought some flowers
for you
my love
I went to the market, where they sell chains
and I bought some chains
heavy chains
for you
my love
And then I went to the slave market
and I looked for you
but I did not find you there
my love

INKED SOULS

I cannot tell you how excited I was to get a call from Shane ( ART WHINO ) asking me to paint a pair of shoes. I LOVE fashion and wanted to make the cutest pair of shoes possible. This was a different "canvas" for me! I was so happy with how my pair of shoes turned out. Here they are at the show...

check out all the PICTURES.

The Streets



I drew a drawing of you after last time I saw you
I never felt to draw a picture like that before
I learnt a lot about myself drawing all morning
It was absolutely shit, I'm awful at drawing

OMA


I'm getting ready for my up and coming OMA installation. Before my grandma passed away i sent her a letter on stationary that looked somewhat like this. She really appreciated the card. You're suppose to take these DECOY cards away and write a letter to someone who you think would really like to know you care.
The final cards will be pink with velum envelops.

CHICAGO

One of my best buds is going to CHICAGO and requested some stickers. Here they are...off to the windy city.
