June 8th was the 37 Annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair. I had entered a design for their poster contest and got a runner up position so my design was printed on postcards available for sale.

With the African Outlet we have been planing and working on some new direction to their campaign to save their store here in San Francisco (currently at 524 Octavia Street). Including fundraisers, parties and the yearly World One Festival across the bay in El Cerrito.

We have released an instagram page for all the instagramers out there to spread the word, see the vibe and show support.

The petition to save the store is still open to sign and show support at http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-the-african-outlet

Stay tuned for more ways to help and of course more art!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful June month so far.

Cheers and One Love!
