Pow Wow Taiwan
Sheryo and I were super lucky to be invited to Pow Wow Taiwan this year, organized by Jasper Wong, Kamea Hardar, Larry the legend and the excellent crew of rad lads. We painted our Tiger, Snake, Bat and Crocodillio in a tunnel in the Taipei Zoo. Good times all round. We painted 4 walls of a tunnel that had a Indiana Jones vibe with toy bats hanging from the ceiling. Pics by @seanmarclee

The Yok and Sheryo are two Brooklyn based artists who created this unique mural in December 2012 on the streets of
Fremantle in Western Australia (a town renowned for it's rich history/culture and its amazing 'fish and chips').
This project was made possible through John Butler and his amazing arts funding initiative known as 'The Seed Fund'.
Thanks to Chad Peacock for this rad film.

MAE SOT & Little Lotus Project
The Little Lotus project has come to an end, thanks so much for everyone that donated to help make
this happen.I worked as a volunteer art teacher in 2 schools for 2 weeks. It was great fun,
the kids had a blast and alot were super talented with great ideas.
Take a look at the photos below and see more on my facebook page. THE YOK FACEBOOK
Sheryo,Drypnz, Meghan Geliza
Shock, Alexface, AMP, Sheryo
Just took a 9hr bus ride to Mae Sot, This place is great! Going to visit the refugee schools tomorrow
and down to the art store to buy some art materials.
It's not too late to donate some money to help go toward buying the kids some paints,pens and things.
Donate via PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm planning a trip to Mae Sot which is on the Thai/Burma border to do volunteer work for 2 weeks in December, for
The Little Lotus Project, run by Spinning Top. I will be painting with children who have been forced by the oppressive
military regime to flee their homeland of Burma.
I will be working on a variety of art workshops with the children, access to education and art supplies is a luxury
for these children and all funds raised from Little Lotus will go towards their ongoing welfare and education.
I'm asking for some help to generate some monies via a donation. This money will help get me to Mae Sot,
cover art materials and help to fund the children's education.
Take a look here at last years project
If you can help out in any way, every little bit will help, please donate via my pay pal account email@example.com
Thanks so much any small amounts will help me get there.

LIttle Lotus Project
Help Support this RAD project for the kids in Burma/Thailand
The charity SpinningTop is launching the Little Lotus Project 2011 this December and taking twelve talented artists from across the globe to the Thai/Burma border to work with and inspire refugee and migrant children who have fled from the instability of Burma. Filmmaker Gareth Moon from Nektar Films, who has worked on projects such as Bacardi Brazil OE, Fly My Pretties, Shapeshifter and more, will be documenting the project along with US filmmaker, Daniel Zana, the creator of 'The Vinyl Frontier'. Videos will be produced and distributed across various media channels to further promote the project. These twelve talented artists are fundraising their own way to the Thai/Burma border for this year's project after being inspired to get involved after the success of the first Little Lotus Project. They are a talented international crew from New Zealand, Cambodia, Singapore and the US.
Support these guys. ARMY OF SNIPERS X LITTLE LOTUS
