Sherri DuPree of Eisley and her husband Max Bemis from Say Anything have a side project called Perma. A true indie DIY venture, cd single were sold on tour, each with signed, one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn cover art from the Bemises. Dig it.

Refueled magazine has come a long way in two short years. It’s slowly evolving into what I had envisioned - a lifestyle magazine for music, style & design lovers, with an edge. If you have the time, go back and revisit issue one, issue two & issue three and see the evolution to the current Fall/Winter .09 issue. And again, thanks very much to the readers. The response has been overwhelming. You’re why we do it. Peace.

Sweet Tooth

"My dad says so few kids was born after the accident, that God decided to make ‘em special. So we got fur, or tails, or antlers. He says I’m the last one left. Outside of the trees is fire and hell, so we’s gotta stay here, where it’s safe. Says the trees stop the fire from burning us forever. An’ if we wait here and pray hard, one day we’ll get to go to heaven and be with mom...that’s what my dad says."

Strange sweet shit from Jeff Lemire


I'm really digging these washed blue pics from Jane Heller. Check her stuff out.

Steve Reiss

New pal, film/tv/video producer Steve Reiss, has done some mighty amazing work. He has produced/co-produced projects for everyone from U2, REM, David Bowie, Madonna, Lenny Kravitz to Michael Jackson - and the list goes on and on. Steve originally emailed me to say he really dug Refueled magazine and what I was doing with it. That in itself was a cool compliment. We found out we had a lot in common. He then was instrumental in hooking me up with REM's manager Bertis Downs, in my efforts to secure a interview with Michael Stipe for Refueled. Steve and I are now in the concept stage of a collabration. Will it be in print, on film? Stay tuned for the outcome.

Eric Testroete

My buddy Dave sent this over to me today, and I thought it was completely insane! Papercraft self-portrait by Eric Testroete.

Artist Statement:
"I made this as my costume for Halloween 2009. It was kind of inspired by big-head mode seen in videogames. I really wanted to get the faceted geosphere look with wireframe."

2009 has been a very productive year for me, and 2010 is already shaping up to be as busy, if not more. Along with the release of my skate board line Refueled Sidewalk Surfboards in the Spring, I'll be releasing the first in a series of Refueled Books. The first titled "Collaboration" - a collaborative photo/graphic venture between photographer Cari Wayman and myself. Cari and I have long talked about doing a project together and it looks like the right time has come. Stay tuned.


The beautiful and talented Courtney Barton over at Inside the Loop is just one of the cool people who I've been receiving props from over the last couple of days since the release of issue four of my magazine Refueled. I am deeply humbled by all the great response. Refueled is a true labor of love and I am so honored to work with a cool group of staff and contributors. They help me shine. As long as you keep diggin' them, I'll keep putting them out. Peace.

Who wants to go?

While SXSW lies in hibernation, Austin has awoken Fun Fun Fun Fest to pronounce that, deep in the wintry heart of Texas, the embers of merrymaking still burn strong.

In addition to Fun Fun Fun Fest’s ridiculous musical line-up, the festival will also host an array of activities to keep fans busy between sets. Fans can check out the festival’s mechanical bull, skate ramp, live screen-printing, photo booth, Flip cam interviews, API poster show, band merchandise and food and fashion from some of Austin’s favorite local businesses.

WHEN: November 7-8 / 12:00—9:00 p.m.

Digital Expressions

I was asked to contribute to Susan Tuttle's new book Digital Expressions. May 2010 release.

Projects like manipulating single photos, collage on a digital canvas, and digital illustration will inspire you to tackle all kinds of digital mixed-media projects using stock photography, custom brushes, textured backgrounds and your own digital photos. A team of talented contributing artists further illustrates the techniques in action. Plus, a bonus CD includes more than 20 digital design elements for you to use in your own projects!
