for Exhale Spa Flatiron

It has been my great pleasure to execute a guerrilla marketing campaign for Exhale Spa, celebrating the opening of their new location in Flatiron, on West 21st St. between 5th and 6th Avenues.  The entire staff -Susan, Kristen, Kim, Morgan, Hannah, and Annbeth- are simply a joy to work with and I look forward to seeing everybody in Core Fusion class!

Officially an Ex-Con Artist

** UPDATE: On July 1, the judge dismissed all charges against me after the District Attorney admitted they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that my creations could be considered graffiti.  YAY!  Now, back to work.


Well, it's happened.  I was arrested on May 11th for doing my work.   

I was working with pastel chalk in Union Square and the park workers complained that the pastel chalks I use were damaging the concrete and needed "power washing" to remove and repair...and wanted me to restrict my work to sidewalk chalk, (which isn't viable.)  The NYPD was called, and said it looked like vandalism and took me in at the scene when I told them I was going to continue my work as it is a protected form of free expression.  I was charged with criminal mischief and two counts of creating graffiti.  BoweryBoogie picked up the story already.  My court date is July 1.   If anybody knows a good First Amendment attorney...

Below is the image I was imprinting, part of my "Louis Vuitton is Dead" series.

Martin Luther King Day 2014

"There are people who have come to see the moral imperative of equality,
but who cannot yet see the moral imperative of world brotherhood. I would like to see the fervor
 of the civil-rights movement imbued into the peace movement to instill it with greater strength."
-MLK at the United Nations, 1967

I hate the way the background came out.  Kids walking with their parents in the park wanted a peace symbol, and I explained what I was going to write, but you know kids.  So I gave in.  
It would have been straight red and blue stripes across.
