Andy Matchett is a old friend of mine. You know the kind of people you're always grateful for meeting- well that's Andy. While here in DC he made up two bands, The Monorail and People Chasing People. It's because of these guys, I started making stencils really. I hand cut stencils from my drawings to make T-shirts for the band. Back then i would buy a fabric medium that i mixed with acrylic paint. No silk screens or fabric ink. If you like music, PLEASE help support an amazing band and help them get their LP released!

Come out to Eastern Market this weekend and stop by and see the mural! Hope to see everyone there!
I love the new DC magazine WORN, which you can still buy! But I also LOVE the WORN blog you can read everyday. One reason its so nice to look at- DC photographer Joshua Yospyn's pictures are so good their almost juicy. Check out their latest story on the DC voting sculptures Albus Cavus made this summer with kids from DC. The blue hand in the photos was made by my buddy Max. If you take a picture with a hand, share your photos at the flickr group.
Went to the 2010 Montgomery County Agricultural Fair this past weekend! This fair has been going on for 62 years, and let me tell you, they know how to put on a good fair. Got to see a giant ALIVE horse, six legged sheep, a miniature bull and the most beautiful of them all, a Zonkey! As Wiki sayd, Zonkeys are VERY rare.
Come out this weekend and meet and shop and create with Albus Cavus and some really neat artist from DC at Arts on N st this Sat and Sun. Also check out my new mural coming soon to SE! Here are the kids and I at the Birth place of John Philip Sousa, whom the mural is about.
