Special thanks to Eddie Zammit and Ambush Gallery for inviting me! #VividSydney

The #Misfits are a punk rock revelation and a band that have mesmerized me from my first introduction to them in 1985. Being asked to do a Misfits 40th anniversary logo recently was a huge honor, and that art is still available as a t-shirt now on the band’s websites - MisfitsOfficialMerch.com and MisfitsRecordsOfficial.com. I’m also very excited that the art is going to be dropping next week as two different variations of fine art screen prints. The Misfits art is pure alchemy genius and the best example of remixing marginal subculture imagery into a cohesive cult brand in history. From horror films, comics, serials, and B-movies the Misfits culled, cut, pasted, inked, and crafted possibly the most recognizable and enduring punk iconography ever. The thing that I love about the classic Misfits imagery is that it is well designed, but has a do-it-yourself charm that is organic and unfussy. I tried to channel this history through my artistic sensibility in the 40th logo and poster. We’re releasing two versions of this print - a “Grave” edition and a “Crypt” edition. The Grave edition will be available on my website ObeyGiant.com on Tuesday, May 30th at 10AM (PDT) and the “Crypt” edition will be available on the Misfits stores - MisfitsOfficialMerch.com and MisfitsRecordsOfficial.com. I’ll be seeing you again! - Shepard

"This piece is based on a painting I did for my 'Earth Crisis' show in Paris. The entire body of work for that show used these shades of blue/turquoise as a connection to the air and water that is essential to sustaining life on planet Earth. This piece is more specifically about the idea that we need to see what is right in front of us, that we are dependent on nature and I used the blooming flower as a symbol of both beauty and growth. If we keep ruining the air and water, things won't grow, not to mention we'll all get sick." - Shepard

Ever since President Donald Trump took office, corporate polluters and their allies in Congress have been plotting to pass a new bill called the “Regulatory Accountability Act” that would make it much harder to put in place new environmental protections for our air, water, and health. The result would be more pollution, more illness and disease, and more hardship for everyday Americans.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a non-profit organization I’ve supported for many years, works to safeguard the earth, its people, its plants, and its animals. They are concerned with changing policy to achieve environmental and energy solutions, not just putting a band-aid on existing problems. I urge you to visit http://NRDC.org now, sign this petition (http://bit.ly/2pYZmoc), and tell your senators to protect our environmental safeguards by opposing this dangerous bill. Thanks for caring. - Shepard
