I’ll be selling limited edition prints and some of my infamous Pop Crucifixes at SOMArts this Sunday. I’ll be joined by the lovely Nicole Schach (above) and other artists selling items all for $25.00 or under. The details are below.

Lowridaz (with a Z!)

Whoa! Mayra Ramirez just let me know that our purikura collaboration is featured in a recent issue of Lowridaz, a Japanese lowrider magazine. I’m finally big in Japan!

I’m trying to get my hands on a physical copy of the magazine. It’s available for sale at Luciano Garage Market and other fine purveyors of Chicano memorabilia in Japan.

Wooohooo!
