Obviously I am dumbfounded by the devastation around our area. A lot of friends, families and our customers got affected by Sandy. We got spared from some of the major effects the storm brought so I am working on some new art and some fundraising options to help support. My hands and hearts go out to all those affected.
Here's a few quick desktops and icons for your computer or FB page.

Thank you's go out to everyone that came out for the fair this past weekend in Fire Island. Was great to see some customers from last year and just as nice to make some more people happy with our art. Luckily the weather held up for the entire weekend and into the night.
All posters that we ran out of and that need to be shipped are mailing out tomorrow. You should have by the end of the week or early next week the latest.
Next up for me is back to Long Beach on the 25th and 26th. I will actually be away on vacation but some of the metalbox crew will be holding down the fort. I will have a few new things available at this fair as well, so come out and say whats up. Until then check out some of the images of the fair and the weekend.

I am proud to announce that we have added a new store to the mix of places where you can buy some of my posters. Welcome SiteNYC in Astoria is the newest location to join Harlem Flo Boutique up on Marcus Garvey Blvd in Harlem and Kline's in Ocean Beach, FIre Island. If your in the neighborhood of these stores go ahead and stop in, they each offer some really great product and I could'nt be in better company.
I will be out at Ocean Beach on Fire Island this weekend for the Annual Arts and Craft Show. Looking forward to meeting some people out there and showcasing/selling my work. I have recently designed and printed up the second series of the Long Island Town Type Map and also a Manhattan map. I’m actually picking them both up from the printer in a few hours. Im psyched to head over to The Printhouse and see how the final prints came out. But first I am at the office finishing up a 44 page catalog for the new Zoo York 2012 sunglass line that needs to be printed, perfect bound and in Vegas for Majic by next weekend. Needless to say it has been a hectic week.
I will have three new designs in total: Long Island and Manhattan which will both be signed and numbered and limited to 500 pieces, as well as a Fire Island Map.You can see all the new designs in the store and ready for immediate shipment.
Hope to see you out at in Ocean Beach.
