I met a woman on the street corner and she was opening a store for children and asked if I wanted to paint a mural in her store. So I did. The store is quite special, full of great books and toys and gifts for small children. It opens on Tuesday in la. You should go visit! Thanks to @therecklessunicornla for being magic people!

Back on an airplane. Left as many secret messages as I could on the sidewalks of this sweltering city. For those of you asking where, I'd say that much of the fun is in the act of exploration. Good luck!
Pigeons in the foreground , yoga in the back. I've colored a bit in the shade here, and left some chalk for you to fill in the rest. Thanks for being you, New York!
Hello New York , let's color !
Sometimes when I'm waiting for the plane to take off, I draw a quick sketch and then see how many people have airdrop activated on their phones and laptops and then I airdrop them an encouraging but confusing sketch. I can hear the guys I dropped this to laughing about it now a few rows behind. Play with the world when you can. Maybe the world will play back!
Hey NYC , I'll be there later today. Let's color something together. Tell me where! Pic by @rjshaughnessy
@jessy.wallace got a tattoo of a drawing I did and she's asked me to help her name it. A tall order indeed! This being a space for collaboration , I thought you all might have some good ideas for names. What would you name this little rainbow on a skateboard? Stellar Tattoo by @bobbydeez

A few weeks back with my friends @summit.air I painted a monument dedicated to dreamers high atop a mountain in the Utah wilderness. During the painting process @georgeevanphoto showed up with professional acrobats @travisbrewer.ninja and @leahacrorussell who immediately began hand standing , jumping, and flipping over me while I colored by the mountain stream. What magicians! Halfway through the painting it became obvious that there were places I wasn't going to be able to reach without a ladder which we didn't have. Fortunately Travis and Leah were nice enough (and strong enough) to hang me upside down by my legs off the roof so I could finish the detail work. As if that weren't impressive enough, Travis decided to do handstands while holding me with his spare arm. Needless to say, I'm glad there were photos taken of this experience, otherwise I might not have even believed it happened. Have a look through this gallery and be sure to check out everyone I tagged, they're all gems! If you've got a drab structure hidden off in the woods that you think could use some color, reach out. Life is getting more interesting by the minute!

Sharing Sundays: as much fun as it is painting big permanent murals across the skyline for all to see, I also really enjoy scribbling small inspirational messages in chalk on the ground and watching them slowly fade away. Sometimes they last minutes, other times months. It's nice to imagine the people who find them, those who stop, those who think, those who write messages of their own. It's always a bonus when people happen upon these out-of-the-way scribblings and share them with the world around. Here is a gallery of some thoughts I've written on the sidewalk lately, as captured by those walking by. I've tagged the photographers in each pic so you can go explore their lives. Expand!

Sometimes there's love in the sky
A few minutes before we realized our rental car got broken into, window smashed out. Life comes in waves. San Francisco, you can be so tricky. I hope a great novel gets written on my stolen laptop and I get to read it one day.

I just painted some plates at @glazefire but I don't need any plates. If you want a free colorful plate stop by @glazefire on 7/17 and give them the password RAINBOW and take one home! Love!

Maybe there's a new friend, maybe a new fact, maybe a new place to stand and look out over it all. Or maybe just a new favorite piece to that one true love you've been trying to understand this whole entire time.
Sharing Sundays! Thanks to everyone out there for all your love and support in helping me share what I do with the world. My job description seems to be ever expanding, and the ways in which you take the ideas and drawings I've made and make them your own never ceases to inspire me. I have no idea where all of this is headed, but it's a blast to watch it evolve. Here's a slide show of some of my newest friends from around the globe, follow the tags to find out more about their lives. After all, what good is the ability to connect instantly if we aren't actually getting to know each other! Good luck being yourself today, and making the most of all that possibility.

For those missing those
It seems a lot of my friends are having babies this summer, so I thought it would be nice to release a brand new alphabet book with the folks at @chatbooks .

Good luck teaching your children how to use letters to write messages of hope and power for the rest of the world to read!
