Since my last posting a few days ago, I had received some e-mails asking me about the shows and whether they will be in NYC. So here are a bit more of the details of the shows I am scheduled to be participating.

1) Paint Ball – hand painted Dunny toy charity show with KidRobot will be held on September 7th in New York. (I am painting it RIGHT NOW.)
2) Custom-made DJ slip mat show with Plus Et Plus will be opening on October 5th in New York, then the show is scheduled to travel to Tokyo and Hong Kong.
3) Goo Press‘s New book Bliss Express releasing party and opening at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles on October 7th.
4) Working with Robinhood Foundation and collaborating with Stefan Sagmeister on a mural project. It will be up in a public school in Bronx.
5) And, one more thing scheduled for early November which is not yet released.

I will post more details and schedules once schedule comes closer. Please stay tuned.
