So originally I had a line or two in Obey the Giant, but it got edited out (thankfully haha) but my character was supposed to be… mentally fucked up. I thought it would be funny for the critique scene for me to put up a topless “self portrait” like the one Annie Leibovitz took of Miley Cyrus, but with more side boob.
So I had my friend Ashton, who was a P.A. on the film, do a quick portrait of me (that’s him in the first pic that I took for reference)
The second pic is of that portrait hanging up on the kitchen wall at my old apartment. My friends, the current tenants of the apartment, look at it every day when they eat.
The last two photos are stills. I literally just woke up from a nap during lunch break just before they shot this scene and I was completely out of it, so me standing there motionless… that wasn’t really acting.

OBEY THE GIANT is finally live!
It’s a short film based on the true story of Shepard Fairey in his RISD days and how the Obey campaign took off.
My role as the Production Designer was to oversee the visual development of this whole project
Please reblog and enjoy!
In just one day, Obey the Giant got over 50,000 views and was featured on The LA Times, USA today, Obey’s official site, kickstarter’s blog, and the Vimeo front page among countless other blogs and articles! Celebrating by running on the treadmill!

OBEY THE GIANT.
The short film I production designed is being released to the public this Monday, April 15!
A RISD friend of mine in the illustration department has this older sister (Rebecca Sugar) who is fucking bad ass for making it on this short list among budding movie stars and viral youtube sensations on Forbes:
If you watch Adventure Time, you’ll probably be familiar with her work, and apparently she’s also getting her own show on Cartoon Network called “Steven’s Universe.” Steven is the name of my RISD friend… I wonder if this going to be a show about him…? Maybe not but I can at least assume the main character is named after him! How exciting is that.
