Hi Friends of Spill Art!
What a colorful crazy exceptionally cool inspiring exhausting artfull musicfull surreal amazingly blessed August we had here in SF!
Our beloved £ee $cratch Perry blessed the West Coast visiting us while touring last month and sold out every venue with Subatomic Soundsystem blowing the roof off of every time! We had THE MOST FUN EVER hanging out day and night with £$P & Noel, making raw, crazy, Magical God Art for our collab show “Lightning Flash” in Berkeley and taking him to all of his shows here in Northern CA, we’ll never forget a minute of it.
We talked about God, The Clash, Butterflies, Greed, Jay Zed & Beyonce (he has much to say about the couple), family, forgiveness, we sang songs, laughed, danced, took a zillion photos, stayed out late, had a major earthquake, an eventful week fe surety. Super blessed, can’t wait for next year!
I gave £ee one of my cherished “Spewing Information” t-shirts that I had made for The Clash and he wore it in killer £$P style, on stage, at two huge shows in L.A., I feel totally humbled & honored…a total dream come true. We LOVE you Mr. Perry!!
Here are some snaps to Enjoy!!
We had the best times working and playing with Lee Scratch Perry last week!
We created lots of magical art and went to earthquaking sold out shows in three cities!
We were blessed all along the way with friends and family giving love and providing help!
Thanks to our friends at The Mayflower Hotel SF, Babylon Burning Silkscreen SF, The Firehouse Art Events Hangar Berkeley and everyone else we met for making our time together sweeter.
Here is the exclusive, limited edition t-shirt that I designed for the occasion, printed with love from big £$P fans Babylon Burning. Get yours now before we run out!
You won’t want to miss this punky reggae art show with the Living Legend, £€€ Scratch Perry and Jill SPILL Fressinier!
The two gifted artists have been secretly collaborating on a dynamic series of spirit inspired, telepathic, colorful, cryptic multi-media pieces that will be shown for one night only, like a “Lightning Flash”, the name Perry chose for the collaboration. Perry will be touring California the end of August with shows up and down the Coast of the MOST.
£€€ Scratch Perry is a Grammy Winner (Best Reggae Album, Jamaican E.T. 2002, Grammy Nomination for his Album, The End of an American Dream in 2007) and is the most prolific reggae artist and producer of all time. He is the mastermind of dub, dancehall, reggae and original sound. In addition, £$P is a visual artist who is known for his multi-layered, spiritual, wildly expressive image and word paintings and collage works that cover the walls of his Secret Lab and art studio.
Jill “Spill” Fressinier is also a very prolific artist working in all mediums producing art like a colorful, magical machine. £$P has lovingly dubbed her his “Art Angel.” Spill has worked with £$P, The Clash and countless others.

the BEST band in the entire world

All of the shirts were made with loving hands and hearts
they’re soft, the graphics are amazing (Andy Acton-Peters @ Live Nation UK) and simply RAD!!!
Heartfelt thanks to The Clash, Blank You Very Much, Eleven Management, Sony, Live Nation, Street Virus, for

Congratulations on your continued success, there are new Clash fans born every day!
I will never forget this day or this feeling. Even my skin is smiling, my heart is bouncing, my belly was sore from all the joy, it’s a punk rock artist’s dream come true!
It’s like when you’re young and you have a gigantic crush on someone amazing that doesn’t know you exist, then the opportunity arises for you to let them know and you scrunch up the courage to reveal your heart to them, risking it all and finding out that they actually…like you!!!! It feels like that!
Thank you Paul, Topper & Mick for choosing me out of all of the talented artists who participated. I had hoped you would see & feel my heart, and YOU HAVE!
This means the world to me. And Joe, we will NEVER EVER stop loving you!
I’ve teamed up with Richard Warren to create this beautiful little children’s book! It’s now available in the iBookstore and at Blurb :o) I had so much fun creating the illustrations and text for this touching and inspirational story that my friend Richard Warren wrote many years ago. It’s a must read for all ages!!! Go get a copy!!
My design has been selected as a finalist in the Bucketfeet Artist Contest!
An awesome company and a brilliant opportunity!
These fabulous, comfy, Vegan Dr Marten™ boots have become Spillified
with the original, one of a kind, Spill Art design and we’re in love all over again.
One of the best things to happen to me while in NYC was being shot by world famous, legendary, brilliantly talented, adorable photographer and sweet soul, Bill Cunningham of The New York Times.
He followed us all around the Union Square green market and then was kind enough to send the photos to me!
He loved my artwork and with a fan like him, you better believe I will be painting more jackets like this one very soon!
Pop on over to Facebook land and have some fun!
