Arcangel Surfware Dot Biz



I know this is a bit late in coming, and many of you have already seen it, but I am super pumped to present arcangelsurfware.biz, the official Arcangel Surfware website. For those just joining in, Arcangel Surfware is a mainstream non-aspirational activewear and merchandise line designed by myself in collaboration with global merchandise giant, The Bravado Group, a division of Universal Music Group. The tag line is, ..... “everything you need to chill in bed all day and surf the net”. So do please check out the site, there is already lots there. The most important part, LOL, is the web store. I have gotten a ton of emails over the year from old school fans of this site about when I would re-open my webstore, well,.... HERE IT IS!!!!~~~~~ Took me 8 years, but I finally got around to it, and now its even branded!

Warhol’s Amiga

Happy 2 announce I was part of a great / chill team that went digging through Warhol’s old Amiga disks - never before looked at - and found some of Warhol’s Amiga experiments. The project was a collaboration between The Andy Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Computer Club (<——OMG such an amazing club!), the CMU Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, The Carnegie Museum of Art, and ..... yours truly. Anyway, there is lots to say, and since there was 4 organizations involved in the effort, there are several press releases(!!!!) ...... AWM, STUDIO, & CMOA. So, I hope u can check them out. FYI, it was the most fun project I ever worked on. A doc is coming soon here, so keep an eye out for that. Thanks 2 all involved. ~~~~! smile smile smile
