I teamed up with the extremely talented @wguidara and Chef @danielhumm of Eleven Madison Park to paint a mural and create art for their new fast-causal restaurant in #NewYork called @made_nice! The restaurant is officially open so to all you New Yorker’s out there, head over to 8 West 28th Street today for lunch or dinner. You’re in for a great meal! 📷: @evansungnyc

Today marks the 4th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, a tragedy that took the lives of 1,100 garment workers in Bangladesh in 2013. We now refer to this day as #FashionRevolutionDay, and use it as a time to reflect on how we can respect the process of how the clothes we wear are made. I’m proud to join @obeyclothing and the fellow @fairtradeusa activists including Rose Marcario (CEO of @patagonia), @kellyslater (Pro Surfer), and Nancy Green (CEO of @athleta) to kick off #FashionRevolutionWeek.

Social responsibility and justice have always been very important to Obey in both message and practice. A longstanding challenge for Obey Clothing has been how to bring high quality clothing to our customers at an affordable price while adhering to our moral code from a human labor standpoint. In other words, how do we reconcile our value system with the pressures of the economic system? We have always researched diligently and chosen to work with manufacturers who provide a fair wage and ethical working conditions. We made the further step to become an official FAIR TRADE USA partner. Fair Trade is a program in apparel and we hope to grow with it as more Fair Trade Approved factories become available. Our hope is not only to benefit the workers of the Fair Trade factories, but to lead by example and promote the expansion of the Fair Trade program. - Shepard

I’m incredibly proud of this new billboard now up at @highlinenyc in New York at 17th Street and 10th Avenue. If you’re familiar with my work, you can see this is a mash up of my “Demagogue" collab with #franzferdinand and "No Future” art, both inspired by a certain demagogue’s arrival to the White House. I am glad that people are taking a stand against the destructive politics of fear and division that continue to be the calling card for the Trump Administration. These first 100 days have been brutal, but we have to continue to push forward for a future with no ignorance, no sexism, no racism, no xenophobia; a future where apathy is the exception NOT the norm. Every act of moral courage makes a difference. Thanks for caring! - Shepard
Thank you @turtleconservancy for the billboard space! Check out #highlinenyc for their opening day of the summer season tomorrow from 1-6pm!

Corporate donations create a distorted influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue that effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Californians, please sign this petition for AB 14, a crucial bill to get Big Money out of our state politics! I’m proud to live in California because our state leads on so many of the issues I care about. We MUST pass this petition to continue to support genuine democracy! Link in bio.

I first illustrated the Dark Wave piece in 2010 as a response to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I made some fine art pieces of the image that I liked even more than the screen prints and decided I’d like to release an offset of the fine art version. I am releasing this both because I like the image, and because unfortunately, the environmental hazards of off-shore drilling are just as relevant today as they were in 2010…especially with the relaxed regulations under the new administration. I enjoy doing illustrations of water with its hypnotic ripples and reflections. There’s oil in this water, which mixes ok in an illustration, but not so well in real life. I want future generations to inhabit a livable planet. - Shepard

I couldn't be more proud to share the logo I designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of my favorite bands - Misfits! As a teenager growing up in South Carolina, the #Misfits were a revelation for me. Aggression, style, irreverence, AND parent-baiting lyrics... the Misfits served up the incendiary cocktail I had been searching for. The Misfits art is pure alchemy genius and the best example of remixing marginal subculture imagery into a cohesive cult brand in history. The thing I love about the classic Misfits imagery is that it is well designed, but has a do-it-yourself charm that is organic and unfussy. With the classic Misfits iconography so well-known and revered, I decided to put my ego as an artist and designer aside and focus on an approach for the band's 40th anniversary logo that builds upon and remixes some classic Misfits images while creating some new elements. In my tribute, I wanted to channel the attitude and be true to the Misfits irreverent four decades in horror business. Like it or not.. you think they really care?
Visit ObeyGiant.com to learn more about what this project meant to me both as a fan and as an artist/designer! You can get the all-new Misfits 40th Anniversary Tee before its available in any store (link in bio). Please note, all orders will be shipped the week of May 1st. I'll also be doing a poster variation of the Misfits 40th art and there's talk of a Misfits x OBEY Clothing collection in the works. Stay tuned for more! - Shepard
