A couple of weeks ago I had a great opportunity to a a massive mural at Ani Ramen. It’s about 30 feet long and 10 feet high, in a terrific space. The food is amazing as well.

THIS JUST IN:

As a continued part of our 125th Anniversary celebration, Katz’s Delicatessen is proud to introduce The Space, a pop-up gallery and apparel shop. Every month we will introduce new collections by talented artists and designers who will fill the location with deli-inspired pieces. In this way, The Space will serve as a tribute not only to the restaurant’s on-going connection to the neighborhood, but also to the people who live, work, and create art in all its forms right here on the Lower East Side.

Fellow collaborators include Baron Von Fancy, Kenzo Minami, HYP-INC, Hanksy, and Alife.

RETURN OF THE MACK

Here’s a typographic piece I did for SLAM to highlight Derrick Rose’s triumphant return to the NBA after a year away (ACL). I’m always stoked when I have the opportunity to work with this look.
