got a little mention in the art section of the houston free press newspaper. free press comes out twice a month i think and this is from the early march edition. i don't really like or agree with everything they're trying to do over there but i haven't been in the papers for a while, and buffalo sean seems to know what's up with anything and everthing going on in the houston art scene, so i'll take it. "...at the corner of montrose and allen parkway sat the robinson building, a magnet for graffiti for years. when the bulldozers finally came a last hurrah of tags went up; VERB, pac-man, JEW. after the last pile of concrete was hauled out it looked like the end of the spot (which will become an islamic center pretty soon) but lo and behold GIVE UP went out of his way to hit the last retaining wall with 6 foot letters about thirty feet in the air...."

i haven't been doing shit for weeks. sleeping too much and spending the rest of my time sitting on the couch watching tv and eating a bunch of horrible crap. letting trash pile up in the studio until it's completely unworkable. or working on stuff for other people instead of my own. i did do a new billboard layout and a couple new poster layouts but haven't made any attempt to print them. or even set up the screens. unsatisfied and unmotivated. bored. went out around the first of the month and did some stuff but hardly took any pictures, and it took until yesterday to post them. i don't know what prompted it but i finally got some shit done last night. put together some more copies of my new zine. reprinted some more razor posters. mixed some glue and went out. here's a couple of pictures of some of what went down.

pretty bad scans on some of these but i lost almost all of my photos a few months back but i still wanted to put up some older stuff and this is the best i have. theres some newer ones mixed in too. for the most part these are all 24"x36" with two or three smaller ones at 18"x24". all are screen printed acrylic on paper and were done in editions of 30.
printed these last year on the backs of no parking signs then bolted them back to the poles. i only ever did maybe seven. here's two of them. aerosol warfare was coincidentally working on a gallery show on this same theme around the same time and featured one of the signs in that show.
