Goodbye Vancouver, Hello Melbourne!

We are all carbon - art culture conference melbourne australia
I’m flying out to Australia today (for my first time ever) to speak at CARBON, in Melbourne. The photo above is my friend Eugene Kan (Hypebeast) speaking at last year’s event. Speakers this year include Barry McGee, DabsMyla, Shawn Stussy, Eddie Huang, and a dozen others. See image below for the full list!

If you live out there, and are able to get to the conference, I’d love to meet you!
