SURFACE: PORTRAITS OF STREET ARTISTS OPENS APRIL 25TH!

I initially met Soren Solkaer in Copenhagen while I was diligently working on a mural. He asked if he could shoot a portrait of me and very hastily, but deftly did a setup using some red gel and available light that turned out to be a stunning composition (despite the aesthetic deficiencies of the subject!). Soren also gave me his book which is full of amazing portraits of some of my favorite musicians like Franz Ferdinand, the Raveonettes, and Paul Simonon of the Clash. Soren spoke to me about his idea to photograph some of the world’s leading street and graffiti artists with their work. Surface is the ambitious culmination of that idea from 2011 and the book and art show richly capture the subjects and their environments. The show is not to be missed! - Shepard

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 25 / 8-11 PM

Exhibition Dates: April 25 – May 23, 2015

We just completed the LA version of the Interpol collaboration in Echo Park. It’s great timing since, like many of you, I’m going to see them this weekend at Coachella. There’s also a 7-inch coming out that we worked on together for Record Store Day, coming up on April 18. Support your local record shop and pick it up. We’ll be selling 150 of the 7-inches releasing on April 28 so if you can’t find it in a shop, check our website. More will be posting soon, thanks as always for caring!

I LOVE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL 33 1/3 Print Release!

Joan Jett is one of the most prolific, bad-ass women in music. I was honored when Joan asked me to recreate the cover of her 1981 album “I Love Rock ’n Roll,” for its “33 1/3 Anniversary” Deluxe edition coming out this month. This is one of my early favorite albums and I used to BLAST it in our house as a kid. We didn’t have a great stereo, but it was pressed loud enough to blow the doors off anyway! It is a big deal for me to work with Joan and I am really pleased with how the album design turned out. If that’s not enough, finally, time has come for Joan’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! To celebrate Joan’s induction and re-release of her classic album, I am offering a limited print run of the design which will be available Tuesday, April 21. Congrats Joan!  -Shepard

The oil and gas industry has long enjoyed a history of strong influence in Washington. Individuals and political action committees affiliated with oil and gas companies have donated $238.7 million to candidates and parties since the 1990 election cycle, 75 percent of which has gone to Republicans.

These facts only emphasize more and more that our political system is broken. Gone are the days of democracy and here to stay are the days of a heavily influenced Congress with organizations such as the American Petroleum Institute (API), the industry’s powerful lobbying and trade association, increasing their power to continue to fuel government-backed subsidies. The hundreds of millions of dollars that the oil and gas industry shell out to employ it’s lobbyists only ensures that policy will never change and our courageous politicians will never stand a chance to reform legislation and repeal these subsidies.

My latest piece, A Message from Our Sponsor, is my interpretation of the powerful, rich, and greedy oil and gas companies and their message to us, the constituents of this “great” democracy. Thanks for caring. -Shepard
