Who do you work for?

Those rascals look good when they scatter all Day Glow), Made belts out of Alligator skin (ATL) a while, I was a Bean Man at The Frij, Hotel Maid, Janitor at McDonalds. I have been self employed for a while now, Designer of Goods. I teach part-time to help fuel my art with cash money. Actually, I have three distinct artist personalities that I split time with. I prefer to keep my Enonymity so as to be able to do my E-thing UN-hindered.
EVEREMAN is not about me, it’s about all of us. I feel sure that whatever people have in mind about EVEREMAN, it’s more intriguing than I am. EVEREMAN is a beautiful idea, it is not an individual.
What are your Current Project(s)?
I’m painting some orange and black Hallerween EVEREMAN tiles for the season, Got my eye on a nice, visible, accessible bill board that screams out for EVEREMAN, just printed some skate decks with Danger Press, some group shows coming up. Also, I am in the market for some chunks of busted concrete, lots of it. Anybody know of a pile of busted concrete chunks laying around, let me know there whereabouts, will ya? Recently finished refurbishing a broken city bench E-style then replaced it for folks to use at a Marta stop.
Who would you love to work with?
Well, I gotta tell you, I am enjoying answering these questions with you, Larry. I’d love to work with any good-hearted ATLien.
If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep?
I got a sweet pair of black leather Converse hightops that they don’t make any more. I’m trying to take extra good care of them now.
What’s on your iPod right now?
Woody Guthrie, The Carter Family, The Black Lips, Vietnam, Ralph Stanley, The Upsetters, The Delmore Brothers, Anna Kramer, Judy Chicago, Jimmie Rodgers, High Grade Ganja Anthems Vol. 2. Ennio Moricone.
