About the Artists
John Park, (RISD Illustration, ’96), is a gifted live painter who mixes layers of mixed media to create compelling narrative. Read an interview with John here… Image above taken at the recent Create:Fixate event in downtown Los Angeles. Credit @eliot.
Born in Sacramento California, Stephen V. Williams is a self taught artist who explores the world of graffiti, surrealism, and sci-fi. Stephen’s current abode is Portland, Oregon, where he spends his days making music and art.
In his youth, he began exploring his inner world through comic book illustrations, focusing mostly on villains. His work often blurs the line between subtle dreamscapes and nightmarish imagery, leading his viewers on a journey into the subconscious chaos of reveries. Organic, mystic, solemn, vibrant, and alive, his art resonates within the deepest notions of what it means to be human.
Be part of a more colorful future.

Suspicious? Curious? Bored? Then Read These FAQs:
But How Will I Know that My Money Went to Mobo?
The best way to know is because Mobo is currently brown. And afterward he won’t be. Mobo will be painted with wild color, poignant phrases and intricate metaphor. We will post updates with the hashtag #YayMobo.
What If You Don’t Raise $2500?
At $1000 we will pull the trigger and take him down to the body shops of east Los Angeles and introduce him to his abrasively glorious destiny. Doug will then have to cover the rest by running is own, slightly different body shop.
What If You Have Money Left Over?
If, after paying for the paint stripping, artists and clear coat, we still have funds remaining then we’ll get him a new set of windshield wipers and a new window lock. If there’s still more left over, then we’ll fix his door locks – although needed three keys to operate has a certain aggravating charm.
But What About All those Neatly Presented Incentives that Kickstarter has?
Incentive 1: You’ll be bringing color and happiness into the lives of thousands! Not enough?
Incentive 2: Give us more than $100 and we’ll give you a free Mindshare 50 Saturday ticket! Still not enough?
Incentive 3: Go over to Erfworld Year of the Dwagon on Kickstarter and donate enough so you get a Rectangle of Gratitude. Yes, you’re Mommy’s unique little snowflake.
Thank you for your time and #YayMobo.
