Meet Adventure Time storyboard artist Seo Kim this Sunday at the L.A. Times Festival of Books. The event’s a treat, and walking away with a copy of Seo’s new book, Cat Person, will be even treatier.
Be one of the first people to get your hands on Seo Kim’s comical comic Cat Person. An attendee of this past weekend’s MoCCA Fest in NYC, after perusing a preview copy, proclaimed that “It’s hilarious…and I don’t even like cats!”

In between performances, I paint. This is a mural I design and produced this weekend in the heart of Washington DC. The dialog happening around the mascot issue is ongoing, and often times repetitive and exhausting. The thing I love about art is the commentary mixes it up nicely by offering perspective not seen in the mass media rhetoric concerning the issue. You can’t buy us off. You can’t tell us we don’t matter, no matter how nicely you dress it up. You can’t dismiss the history of our people and the way America has considered us, treated us, and continues to dismisses us. Your efforts to eradicate Indigenous people has failed, and we will forever be a thorn in the side of those unwilling to yield to Indigenous people’s place in the world and on this continent. There are bigger issues in Indian Country, but few issues illustrate so publicly the inept relationship America has with Indian Country. If it’s such a small issue, then change it. If you want to truly honor us, honor us by changing the name, and taking Indigenous mascots out of the mix. Commodify yourselves, your own history, your own culture. Respect Indigenous people, Indigenous culture, Indigenous language, Indigenous traditions, Indigenous identity and Indigenous opinion. #changethename we are #notyourmascot.

Artist Zio Ziegler working on another massive mural at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Italy! We’ve had the chance to witness Zio paint a mural last year at the Vans US Open, and there’s nothing like it. Total workhorse.
