Thanks to Obey Clothing and Shepard Fairey for the video!
In late July of 2011, Shepard Fairey and his team headed to Copenhagen for a solo exhibition at the V1 Gallery. We decided to document the trip in hopes of capturing a behind the scenes look into the preparation for the show. The show itself was a huge success but a lot of crazy stuff happened along the way. The following videos are a very honest look at the highs and lows of the experience. This is episode 1. Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks to Eight Four Films, Creature Skateboards and Jay Howell for the video!

Fecal Face reports… Jay Howell did the character development and drawings for the Fox show Bob’s Burgers. Jay met the creator Loren Bouchard (Dr. Katz, Home Movies) at Atlas Cafe in San Francisco. Loren, after thumbing through some of Jay’s zines, asked Jay to do all the initial character development on Bob’s Burgers which he worked on for over a year… Fox Simponsized Jay’s drawings quite a bit, but Jay’s super happy with how it all came out. If you have not seen this show… you have to check it out. Watch the episode “Art Crawl”.
Thanks to Saber for the video!
Juxtapoz writes… Los Angeles-based Saber has long been an artist who is concerned with various politcal causes, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has inspired him to create the #OccupyFlag project. Saber organized a huge American Flag broken into 64 individual protest signs laid on the South East lawn of City Hall in LA. The slogans written on each sign were grabbed from the related Twitter hash tag topics on #OccupyWallstreet #OccupyLA.
Here is Saber’s full commentary about the project:
Its October 14, 2011, day 28 of #OccupyWallstreet. America is rocked. The world is watching, the media is manipulating, people are energized. Citizens have come together to express their frustration with corruption through this robust and peaceful protest movement.
Occupy Wall Street is the first real protest movement of my generation. Satellite movements have sprung up in every major city across the country including Los Angeles. Making art is the best way I know how to participate and what a better way then to create a huge American Flag that breaks up into 64 individual protest signs laid on the South East lawn of City Hall. The slogans written on each sign were grabbed from the related Twitter hash tag topics on #OccupyWallstreet #OccupyLA. With the frustrations of the 99% mounting, Pandora’s Box has been thrust open. Complacency is no longer an option…………
