Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin devoted his entire State of the State address in January to what he called Vermont’s “full-blown heroin crisis.” Since 2000, he said, the state had seen a 250 percent increase in addicts receiving treatment. The courts were swamped with heroin-related cases. In 2013 the number of people charged with heroin trafficking in federal court in Vermont increased 135 percent from the year before, according to federal records. Shumlin, a Democrat, urged the legislature to approve a new set of drug policies that go beyond the never-ending cat-and-mouse between cops and dealers. Along with a crackdown on traffickers, he proposed rigorous addiction prevention programs in schools and doctors’ offices, as well as more rehabilitation options for addicts. “We must address it as a public health crisis,” Shumlin said, “providing treatment and support rather than simply doling out punishment, claiming victory, and moving on to our next conviction.”
Vermont has passed a battery of reforms that have turned the tiny state of about 627,000 people into a national proving ground for a less punitive approach to getting hard drugs under control. Under policies now in effect or soon to take hold, people caught using or in possession of heroin will be offered the chance to avoid prosecution by enrolling in treatment. Addicts, including some prisoners, will have greater access to synthetic heroin substitutes to help them reduce their dependency on illegal narcotics or kick the habit. A good Samaritan law will shield heroin users from arrest when they call an ambulance to help someone who’s overdosed. The drug naloxone, which can reverse the effects of a heroin or opioid overdose, will be carried by cops, EMTs, and state troopers. It will also be available at pharmacies without a prescription. “This is an experiment,” Shumlin says. “And we’re not going to really know the results for a while.”

Hey, Goobers! I made a tiny idle animation for Io, to up his wizard-power, obviously.
Wizard Battle 2014, there’s still lots of time to participate!

Haunted Euth & T.S. Claire, “Dreamland Summer.”

In what will certainly be one of the best showcases of contemporary street art this summer, artists Haunted Euth and T.S. Claire will be presenting a brand new body of work entitled, “Dreamland Summer,” this Saturday, August 30th at Clean Aesthetic in Culver City, California.  Having taken a look at most of the work for the show and following both artists closely (A portrait of me done by T.S. Claire hangs in my bedroom and one of Haunted Euth’s cement faces sits on my desk) I will say that this is one show you do not want to miss if you’re in the area.  Check out 10 more images below from the show - a tiny fraction of the epic amount of work the artists have made for it.

Screen printed poster for the anime Ghost in the Shell. Released and sold by Mondo at San Diego Comic Con today to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this classic. Being a big fan of the film it was a great honor to work with this.

So much work I can’t show right now, but here’s a bit of an experiment I’ve been playing with. Ink and digital. And yes, I do realize it has a bit of a James Jean feel to it…
