Thank you @cranbrookartmuseum for having me for the opening of Salad Days. I was and still am inspired by punk rock and the incredible visuals. You can get a taste of that world by stepping into the Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976-1986 show that’s on view in tandem with Salad Days. Punk rock and skateboarding really saved my life and Salad Days showcases my first 10 years from the Andre the Giant has a Posse sticker to 1999, and the inspiration and approach I took from punk and put into my own work. Thank you to everyone at Cranbrook especially Andrew Blauvelt and Laura Mott, the @librarystreetcollective team especially J.J. and Anthony Curis, and my team including Dan Flores. If you’re in Michigan, head to Cranbrook Art Museum between now and October 7, 2018. Thank you for caring! - Shepard

The Trump administration’s inhumane policy of separating children from their parents when families seeking asylum cross the U.S. border illegally is far more severe than previous administrations including Obama, Bush, and Reagan. Trump has been telling the easily disproven lie that the policy of separating children from their parents was initiated under Obama and he’s just following existing law. Don’t fall for that lie! We need to demand humane immigration policies and follow through with the promise of the DREAM ACT!

The Obey Salad Days print was created to accompany the Salad Days exhibition, a selection of my art from 1989-1999 at the @cranbrookartmuseum. My show is a companion show to Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976-1986 and Salad Days is meant to show the influence of punk on my early work’s aesthetics, concepts, and methods. The Salad Days print features a recreation of the paste-up I made in the process of refining the Obey Star Icon in January 1996. I did not learn how to use a Mac until late 1997, so the star image was created by hand using a star window cut out of paper to choose the right cropping for the Icon Face I had just illustrated. I like the idea of revealing the low-fi techniques that drove punk and my early career (and still do!). -Shepard
