It’s been a while since I made a wallpaper, and we do have a little thang goin’ on with AroundPhilly.com, so I decided it was time to make something crispy for yall. This was nautically inspired, and more so, made up of symbols I’d like to see on some “go to hell” pants.
The above is for your desktop, and the below would be some screens for your iPhone. Hope you enjoy!
I made this originally as panel as part of wheatpaste installation I did for the Nom Now show at TrickGO. At the show, we raffled off each panel, and three lucky winners will get to take them home when the show comes down in a month.
But in the meantime, I wanted to resize this to wallpaper size so that everyone can have it! Click it to get the full size.
Speaking of the TrickGo show, and it being up for month, if you didn’t get to make it out to the opening last night, feel free to drop by in the next few weeks and check out all our shirts and posters, it’s at 1135 Pine St in Philly. What’s left of them will be on sale for the remainder of time there. Below is a nice price chart featuring some of the stuff that was there. And to those of you who were there, thank you so much! It was an absolute good time, and I couldn’t have been happier to see everyone.
This is one of the great lines that you hear once and it never leaves you. My friend Brian McLendon is a really talented musician and designer and just overall creative person, and this comes from a song he wrote a few years ago called “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes”. Recently this line has been popping up in my head and I thought that it could make a really great poster.
I think this speaks directly to us as a little bit of motivation along with a reminder that we are all genuinely unique and special. As our summer winds down and we all go back to our more “normal” lives, don’t forget to be a red balloon.
Also, you may have noticed, this is now officially http://www.mattgoold.com and i could not be more thrilled about that. Thanks for coming back time and time again and for giving me a reason to make this very official switch!
So for those of you who made it out to our show this past Friday at Vesuvio, you probably saw this. It was the first poster I made for the show, and I was sort of an idea I had for a while, but always forgot to execute. I was excited because it got some really awesome reception and I wound up selling out of this print. SO, I wanted to throw this up and make a formal announcement saying that if you were someone who wanted this poster after it sold out, or you are checking it out now and thinking you might like it, let me know on here or on facebook, because I will be ordering more of this print, and I don’t want to miss anyone.
Thanks for all your support and interest, I’m truly touched that anyone cares about this.
The picture below is the long-awaited group picture we’ve always wanted. It’s also one of the best pictures ever. It’s very hard to get us all in the same place at the same time and we needed to take advantage of it. I love you guys, this wouldn’t be possible without all of you doing what you’re doing and I’m so glad to be doing it with you.
After our first run of Nom Now stickers, we quickly realized how fast 1000 stickers can slip through your fingers. So we decided we need to move into the next design, which I had the pleasure of doing. So here they are folks, you voted on them, and this one won. Be sure to pester me or one of the other guys for these, and we’ll gladly hook you. We’ll be giving these out at our art show on the 30th, which if you’re in the dark about that, Facebook has all the details, just look for Nom Now Art Show.
So get these while they are hot, and believe me, this batch is piping!
This past weekend I took a trip into the city with my brother in graphic design, Mike Smith, along with a few helpful friends to continue the spread of Nom Now. I’m kind of a baby (at least for right now) when it comes to this stuff, but I wanted to help further this idea as much as I could, so I decided to film it and compile a video. It documents the work, and immortalizes the often short life of street art. Nom Now is all about making yourself a better person and the world a better place. These posters are largely inspirational. Those two facts are far from being new notions, but the approach to them is what sets them apart. These aren’t the inspirational posters hanging in your elementary school classroom. I hope this inspires all of you to become active and creative. No one is going to give you permission to make the world a better place, you just need to go ahead and do it.
Keep an open eye for this stuff, it’s popping up everywhere.
