I will be featured on KCET's Socal Connected show airing this
Wednesday night, September 10 at 8pm (PST).
I was interviewed in front of my new mural "voLAr" (part of my #FacesLA mural campaign)
and my first official one under the new mural ordinance.
Below are some behind the scenes pics of the interview
with host Nic Cha Kim and the Socal Connected crew doing their thing...
Tune in, would love to get your feedback!
This just came out and I really like the unique angle they did on this one!
Thanks to Ed Fuentes and KCET for this piece.

Yesterday I attended the Planning Commission Hearing in L.A.'s City Hall on the new Mural Ordinance Draft and was able to provide my own public commentary alongside 25+ other fellow artists, muralists, and art lovers. We are close to getting this mural moratorium ended and getting a new mural permitting program up and running. I don't think everyone will be 100% satisfied with the final ordinance but it should be good enough to get muralists out there and doing our thing. My main issue is with the proposed $199 permit fee. I think the permit should be free and not cost artists or building owners anything to get one.
To find out more about whats going on with this issue here is a link to the draft:
The Commission is accepting written statements about the issue until February 8th, 2012
Please send letters, comments and support. LA muralists need it!
