Do you ever wish art was a full contact sport like Luche Libre Wresting? Well thanks to the Council on the Art & Humanities for Staten Island it now is! The teams of 5 have been chosen to battle to the death (well, kind of). Will my team the DINGLE BOTS conquer, slaying all so called artists or will we drown in a bottomless pit of paint? Find out at art‐OFF, a monthly competition kicking‐off Second Saturdays Art Walk starting in March and running through June. At each event, a secret material will be revealed to those in attendance and each team will have an hour to create a work of art related to a theme chosen at random at the start of the event. Come out and cheer us on! Art @ Bay 70 Bay Street Staten Island, NY, near the Staten Island Ferry Terminal Click here for more info and to purchase tickets.

This hand silk screen poster is printed in an edition of 500. It's one of my first garment graphics but I loved it so much that brought it back as a poster. This one goes out to all the gold front and Jesus chain wearing peeps. Have you ever been approached by someone with all shiny teeth? If you haven't let me tell you that initially it's a bit shocking. After the shock wears off you'll kinda want some too..hee hee. Shout out to all minstrel shows, old and new.
I've heard that is is a thin line between fashion and costume but feel that if are not naked than you are in costume. There is something absolutely magical about being able to wear the whole rainbow on your bottom. It's a wonderful simple pleasure something like what this dude was experiencing. These are made in an edition of 5. They have a stretch waist waist band and cuffs and fit a waist size 22"- 42" Item is in stock and ships the next business day upon ordering. junkprints.com
The promotional campaign is officially on!!! I Love music....no, I really love music. In a time like this, when hipsterism and the fear of being a hater have tainted our judgment on the music we like, I have decided to make ya'll a lil mix tape. I swear if I hear one more person say "I love all kinds of music and have 8 terabytes of everything including songs that don't even exist yet" or something along those lines I'm going to puke! C'mon son, we all know you have like 10 songs that you play on repeat...don't be ashamed, it's okay to have a preference. I have preferences and want to share them with you (like I always do ;). So here's the story of the EP, some of the tracks I kinda begged for, and some were inspired by a retarded long list of songs I was really feeling that month. I distributed the list to my super talented musician pals, kinda made them work together under the direction of Mr. Tough Dumplin and they returned with this. This project was filled with many late nights on the roof of an undisclosed Red Hook building, a stuffy Kensington Bedroom Room, coast to coast chit chats, jokes, tears, new friendships and old ones. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do and tons of love and thx to all the musicians on Junkyard Radio! Junkprints Radio Vol. 17 whole thing! Now ya'll know that this project wouldn't be complete with nifty packaging and a collection of merchandise including apparel, skate decks accessories and shoes inspired by the ep. This limited edition Cassette tape USB is free with selected online purchases. 1.
