Please join me Thursday, Sept 25th, from 6-830pm at PS1 for the opening of the New York Art Book fair for the launch (and signing) of my monograph from last Spring / Winter, All The Small Things, published by Walther König, Köln, designed by the great David Yun (Wax mag), with pics by Sasha Maric and now (finally) available in the USA. This launch seemed like a good occasion for Arcangel Surfware pop-up #2, so that’s happening as well, so do def stop by. And since all Arcangel Surfware pops ups have a title, this one is called “Through Fire and Flames”. It will make more sense when u see it. Also, I have made just for this occasion a limited edition print U CAN ONLY PICK UP there. So lotsa good stuff, one night only.

Got ... two (!) ... shows coming up. Both titled tl;dr, but both different. One in LA, and one in New York. The New York one centers on a new series of works called Lakes (which u may have seen images of), and the LA one is a bit more scattered. Actually, ... still working on the LA one as I type this, but please do try to check one or the other out. Been grinding on these all summer.

I know this is a bit late in coming, and many of you have already seen it, but I am super pumped to present arcangelsurfware.biz, the official Arcangel Surfware website. For those just joining in, Arcangel Surfware is a mainstream non-aspirational activewear and merchandise line designed by myself in collaboration with global merchandise giant, The Bravado Group, a division of Universal Music Group. The tag line is, ..... “everything you need to chill in bed all day and surf the net”. So do please check out the site, there is already lots there. The most important part, LOL, is the web store. I have gotten a ton of emails over the year from old school fans of this site about when I would re-open my webstore, well,.... HERE IT IS!!!!~~~~~ Took me 8 years, but I finally got around to it, and now its even branded!
