 Spending a lot of time away from home lately so looking forward to getting home tomorrow to see these two crazy ones. #NationalPuppyDay #pugs #pugsofinstagram #pug #puglife  Brunch with @thechiclibrary before I hit the road again #chic #tomford @blackscale #blackscale @tomford #brunch #fashion  I always love the unwritten rule in Barcelona where you can create street art on doors and shutters but not the actual buildings. #streetartbarcelona #barcelona #streetartofficial #streetart #streetartist  Another preview of our commission from @tristaneaton and based on the 'crazy' in letterpress type and archery target you should know this is my side of the piece. #tristaneaton #tristaneatonart #tristaneatonmural #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial  No caption does this justice because @tristaneaton is an absolutely brilliant artist. @thechiclibrary and I each gave him a list of what we love and inspires us which he used to create this massive 8' x 4' painting that he is finishing today. It can't get here fast enough. #streetartofficial #streetart #streetartist #tristaneaton #tristaneatonart #tristaneatonmural #commission #modernart #mural
 Another preview of our @tristaneaton commission. Full photos coming soon #tristaneaton #tristaneatonart #tristaneatonmural #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial  The @obeygiant globe is a limited edition replica of the one which hung from the Eiffel Tower last year and was made by the worlds oldest globe maker. #galerieitinerrance #streetartparis #streetart #streetartist #shepardfairey #obeygiant #obey @galerie_itinerrance  My kind of street art from the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #barcelona #streetartbarcelona #hola #skull  Our abdominal snow Pug loves the weather and the 16" of snow at our house north of NYC which feels more like north of the wall today. #pug #pugs #pugsofinstagram #nyc #westchester #snow #northofthewall  For those who asked about where to find the @invaderwashere is at @picassomuseum - remember it's an old piece before he got his style down so maybe look down at the last doorway on the south end of the museum. #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #streetartbarcelona #spaceinvader #invader #invaderwalls
 More in love with our @obeygiant from @galerie_itinerrance more every day. #streerart #shepardfairey #shepardfaireyart #shepardfaireyobey #streetartist #globe #earthcrisis  Feels a bit like Xmas today as our Earth Chrisis @obeygiant pieces and more showed up from @galerie_itinerrance in Paris. #obeygiant #obey #shepardfairey #streetartist #streetart #streetartparis #galerieitinerrance  Briefcase 2.0 thanks to @louisvuitton Avenue champ de Elysees #apolloalldaybag #louisvuitton #louisvuittonmonogram #monogrameclipse #lv #design #creativedirector  Thanks to @quiccs for the new addition to the collection - a black Forbidden TEQ63. It's the perfect middle size between my two @huckgee TEQ Skullheads. #quiccs #urbanvinyl #huckgee #huckgeeskullhead #dunny #skullhead  Barcelona street art public service announcements #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #streetartbarcelona
