Over the weekend I painted a monument to love on the @dangerbirdrecords building in Los Angeles. It was an challenge and a dream at once. I tried to create something that was undeniably colorful and uplifting. Something inclusive and joyous. A space to take pause and consider what it is we are all doing here. Because of the size and scope it was hard to fit it all into a photo, so here is a gallery of a few moments. Thanks to @disizmicky_official for the assist, and for everyone who showed up to help this whole building come together. I'm about to hit the road to paint murals in TX, Chicago, and DC next. If you're in any of those areas and want to hang, or have a space that needs coloring, reach out to email@example.com and maybe we can put something together. And if you're in LA stop by 3801 sunset any time and share a smile!

I'll be hiring some interns for a few upcoming projects. You can work remotely. Must have a general understanding of excel, Photoshop, and various social platforms. Send an email with links to what you do : firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
Another day painting in the sun with friends! Many strangers this time as well stopping through and becoming new friends, offering love and hugs and treats and sometimes a helping hand. The whole building should be finished tomorrow and I must say its been a real dream. If you're in LA come through and take a look! Finished pics tomorrow, this one was snapped by @rach_apologies .

I painted a building outside with good friends most of the day today. That's an honest feeling. Hung off a roof in the hot sun making an old wall sing a colorful tune. I'll be out there tomorrow and hopefully more and more forever. If you're around, maybe we will find each other and color a thing or two together!

Hey friends and strangers in Dallas TX, Chicago, and Washington DC, I'm going to be stopping through in a bit to share some magic. If you've got places to visit, spaces to paint, schools to read to, stores to shake up or stages to talk on, send an email to email@example.com and tell me where to go! Let's expand!
Keeper of color. Giver of light.
Sharing Saturdays! Thanks for all the creativity, thanks for all the joy. It's an inspiration to see so many people reaching for rainbows, making art and trying to make a difference in whatever small (or large) ways they can! Explore the gallery to meet new friends. Expand!

Saw this faded mural at an elementary school down the road. No idea the artist. Maybe even a child. They make my favorite artists. Loose hands. Noodle brains. Shel Silverstein has had as much impact on my life as any one stranger ever could. I feel lucky to be able to make books that live in the same universe as The Giving Tree. I can't wait until all the buildings I've painted are ravaged by years of too hot days, handball games, scribbled profanities and reckless skateboarders striving for perfection. The whole world is a playground. The whole world is a canvas. The whole world is a collection of poems waiting to be experienced. Climb that fence. Paint that wall. Write that book. Live that poem. Give and keep giving til we're gone.
Throwback Thursday gallery. It seems I've been doing a lot of traveling, a lot of painting on things, a lot of talking to people and a lot of learning. Here are a few of my favorites. I've tagged the picture takers, organizers and makers of magic as best as I could remember. Apologies if I left out any credits. Have fun exploring, supporting and making new friends. Excited to come color your city soon! Love to all.

These reports and images from the Houston Floods seem incredibly dire. If by chance you are somewhere warm and safe today why give what you can by texting HARVEY to 90999 to support the Red Cross relief effort, or donate directly to the Salvation Army or the local children's hospital: Driscoll Children's . I know a lot of people with kids and families from around the world check this feed so why not use this as an opportunity to teach those around you how to offer hope and help when a situation seems so far away and so far beyond our control.
Sharing Sundays. Thanks for including me in your colorful lives all around the world. What I'm creating here isn't a finished piece, but a stepping stone to help others uplift and inspire. Feel free to take whatever moves you, make it your own and keep going. Love to all those in this gallery for putting a smile on my face this morning, explore the photo tags to make some new friends!
