Another sketchbook bites the dust. Look through my latest finished Stillamn & Birn Sketchbook. It's just a fraction of the 600 illustrations in my new book of drawings available on Amazon.



Voted Best Dressed

I have always been known as one of the best-dressed men about town. I'm anticipating GQ naming me this year's best. Here is a little look at why. Buy the book by the man on Amazon today.



Industrialized Fishing

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 10:49:00 +0000

(image)
One good reason to eat less fish is because of Industrialized fishing methods. There are 1.4 billion hooks deployed annually on long lines (on each of which is a chunk of fish, squid, or dolphin flesh used as bait). A single fleet of boats have up to 1,200 nets, each one thirty miles in length used to catch one species. A single vessel can haul in 50 tons of sea animals in a few minutes. It's not a very sustainable formula.



Stop Motion

A cute little stop motion film that says it all. At least, it says it better than I could say it.



Camera Head

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 11:20:00 +0000

(image)
This photograph taken of me is a pretty good visual explanation for what I do as a photographer. It's also a very good incentive to buy my new book. At least I think so.



Me In Action

Need I say more? My new book is available on Amazon. All My Photographs Are Made With Pens.

Famous Photographers

Most people don't usually associate me with the world's greatest photographers. With the release of my new book, the critics are now taking a closer look at my vast collection of images. The notion of me as a great photographer is not so far fetched. You may want to purchase the book for yourself.



The Ad Campaign

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 10:23:00 +0000

The advertising campaign is up and running. You may run into it around town. Now you just have to show that advertising works by buying one.



Amazon Reviews

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 10:16:00 +0000

(image)
I could use some good reviews of my new book on Amazon. So if anyone who bought it has 2 minutes could you write me a brilliant review so potential buyers will think I'm much cooler than I really am. Also, I appreciate all those who bought one. I feel the love.



WIP Ceramic

Here is the newest piece I am working on in ceramics. It's been fired once. Next I put on the clear glaze and send it into the furnace again. Another in my skateboard seroes.



Juxtapoz Magazine And Me

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 09:59:00 +0000

(image)
I finally made it into Juxtapoz Magazine. I've been featured a few times on their website but as far as being in the magazine, this is a first. As you can imagine, I nearly fell off the couch when I got my subscription copy and stumbled upon this. ALmost fainted. Thank you, Juxtapoz.



Passing

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 10:24:00 +0000

(image)
Yun's grandmother passed away a few days ago in our apartment. She was our roommate for the last 3 years. I drew this about 10 days before she left us. I'd sit next to her and draw while she slept. I always got the feeling that her whole life was passing before her as she was in these deep sleeps. Grandma passed very peacefully. It was quite beautiful. Just like my drawing shows. I believe she was showing me how it's done. It was an incredible life lesson.



Most Ever

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 11:11:00 +0000

(image)
Well, the first sentence is true. Now is a good day to buy my book and see for yourself how many gallons of ink went into doing it. It's ridiculous. Available on Amazon.



Shrimp Story

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 10:09:00 +0000

(image)
The average shrimp trawling operation throws 80 to 90 percent of the sea animals it captures overboard, dead as bycatch. Shrimp account for only 2% of global seafood by weight, but shrimp trawling accounts for 32% of global bycatch. Imagine if when you went to purchase shrimp at the market, it came with a warning label that said, "28 pounds of other sea animals were killed for this one pound of shrimp." Would you still buy it? Probably. Warning labels never really deterred anyone from buying cigarettes, so why should seafood warning labels. Anyway, next time your ordering one of those cute little shrimp cocktail appetizers, maybe go for the green salad instead.

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 11:19:00 +0000

Pens

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 11:37:00 +0000

In the right hands, the pen can be mightier than the camera. I prove it in my new book of drawings. Now available for pre-order on Amzon. Ships November 21st.

Lime In The Coconut

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 10:00:00 +0000

(image)
I was just in Florida for the wedding of 2 of my favorite people, Kaetlin and Amanda. One morning I found a coconut on the beach and decided to draw it. I put some shells around because that's the only other objects I could find on the beach. Once I started, I knew I would put a lime in there too. Recently I was hanging out with my friend, Butch Belair's 6 year old daughter, Layla. I always say and do goofy things around her. I began to sing the song, "lime in the coconut", over and over. I'm sure she thought I was making it up. I told her it was a real song. The look on her face said, no way. So I found it on my phone and played it for her. The song is so absurd that she couldn't believe some knucklehead actually recorded it. Now when I make something up and tell her its real, she may actually believe me a little. If you haven't heard the song in a million years, its worth a listen.



The Big Reveal

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 09:59:00 +0000

(image)
Here is a first look at the cover of my new book. It's called, "All My Photographs Are Made With Pens". It is by far my greatest accomplishment.
