Interviewed for WFMU’s The Dusty Show

I was selling t-shirts in Union Square a few days after “Snowmageddon” and Clay Pigeon of The Dusty Show approached me and asked if I’d like to be interviewed. We covered New Year’s resolutions, Iowa, and Obama in addition to sharing stories about the blizzard that ate Brooklyn. I’m posting an excerpt of the show on Greymatters, but you can listen to the entire 12-30-10 show at WFMU’s website.

General Assembly on The Dusty Show (4.3MB MP3 file)

A.R.T.I.S.T. speaks out against proposed arts ban in NYC parks

There will be an artists protest rally this coming Friday at 10 AM, at the Chelsea Recreation Center, 430 West 25th Street, in Manhattan. Following that will be a public hearing and then a decision by the Parks Commissioner on the proposed rules.

I created this image for use in protests (or you could just hang it on your wall, or keep it until 2012…). Available as an 8.5×11 PDF or 16X20“.

Behold: New Stock

For those interested in my t-shirt mongering, here’s an update: I just got in an order of onesies (size 0-3), some short and long sleeved crew necks and organic cotton scoop necks. I’ll also be printing the last of my “supergirl” shirts with the pigtail image. I’ve got twelve shirts left, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

I’m also working on more art about buildings and food.

Announcing GA Custom Orders!

In keeping with the “Clothing the Masses” motto, I’ve started a General Assembly tag on my blog so that I can create this page. We hope this will facilitate communicating with customers and help the masses to get the shirts in the size and color they want!

Custom ordering may prove to be an insane thing to do as business increases, but for the time-being, at least, we’re open to the experimental merging of t-shirts and new media.

I’ll start posting pics of the shirts I get in here. I’ll also post sizes under this tag, since I know I have a couple of outstanding design/size/color requests from the last market. We at General Assembly view this as a collaborative process between us and our customers united in a single goal: getting the ideal t-shirt to the people!

If you would like to order a custom size/color/design combo, there is a very basic order page here. I’ll continue making upgrades to the capitalist ordering system as needed.

General Assembly update

GA logo

I’ve been busy this week getting ready for the launch of the General Assembly t-shirt line, and just added a new page for online ordering. I’ll be using an application on the iPhone to process credit card transactions. Ain’t technology great?

I’ve also updated the designs gallery, adding thumbnails and an image for an upcoming shirt design – the United Federation of Wrestlers logo.

The UFW logo was originally created years ago for the online photo-novella, In the Ring with Rosa, which I did in collaboration with the super amazing Nao Bustamante.
