Anonymous said: how to buy if I am from another country? :D
how to buy what? ok i will post links and talk about my shit some more:
- ADAMJK INTERNET GIFT SHOP
this is where you can buy my small-run art things directly from me, including limited run prints and multiples, t-shirts, pencils, and anything else i have felt like making. i will ship anywhere in the world except apparently my shit just won’t ever be delivered in dubai so don’t bother.
- hello hi sure yes ok
this is my zazzle shop, which is a print-on-demand website of pretty decent quality and where i put up designs that are too weird or ridiculous to produce in large quantities. some of these items never sell at all, but there are some gems and you might like something. i make about $1 per sale so this is about jokes, not money.
- 1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion
this is an upcoming journal/doodle book that i made with penguin random house, on the perigeebooks imprint. it will be available “wherever books are sold,” and is currently available for pre-order from most websites. a portuguese edition, Uma Pagina De Cada Vez, will be out next month from companhia das letras (paralela imprint) and is available for pre-order from major brazilian outlets
- adam j. kurtz, human being
this is a moderately-okay person you can talk to, he is 25 and lives in new york. he is not for sale and is not a business or a brand just a guy. being him is exhausting sometimes for a multitude of reasons. he is very tired right now.

lately all I can think about is the past and future, how much better I was or will be, setting paths into motion and making sure I arrive at the other end, opposite coasts and the light that carries us across (at Idle Hand Tattoo)

two things about san francisco: it’s muggy as hell, and there are more homeless people than I’ve ever seen anywhere else.
I ran into Lava Mae, a mobile shower truck that started a few weeks ago. they were doing a first test run in the tenderloin, an area that makes baltimore feel cozy. I met the founder and volunteers and gave them my last $20, but obviously that doesn’t pay for a truck.
I want to do a little more in my own small way, so I’m going to give them 100% of postcard sales from my gift shop through next weekend. cards are all $1, so buy ten cards and I’ll give Lava Mae your $10.
learn more about them at LavaMae.org and follow them at lavamae.

this morning I met the incredible brazilian artist @pacolli! she lives in sf now, a block from my hotel! it was fate. I’ve been inspired by her work for years, it feels so real and effortless and cool. I was so nervous to meet in person being such a fan but we talked about feeling like you just NEED to make, and being a person, and everything. I’m obsessed with her & meeting only reinforced that. you have to follow her, know her work, buy your favorites, and know that this is the real deal. I’m still beaming and we only met briefly for a studio visit and coffee. I’m pinching myself. this is what instagram & the internet is all about! #highinthebay

Pense em alguma coisa que deixa você inseguro e escreva o que é em letras enormes. Use o espaço todo! Olhe bem para o que você escreveu. Agora vire a página. No seu primeiro livro, o artista gráfico americano Adam J. Kurtz usa provocações divertidas como esta para fazer o leitor refletir sobre sua vida ao mesmo tempo em que testa a própria criatividade. Como o título diz, cada página traz uma brincadeira diferente. Pode ser uma pergunta, uma sugestão de desenho ou um pedido para que você crie uma lista de músicas para seu amor verdadeiro ou das melhores fatias de pizza que comeu na vida. O autor também pede para o leitor colar objetos inusitados nas páginas do livro e compartilhar nas redes sociais algumas das anotações feitas nele. Uma maneira espirituosa e lúdica de buscar o autoconhecimento. (via UMA PAGINA DE CADA VEZ | Livraria Cultura)
1 Page at a Time is actually coming out in Brazil first!!
It’s being released by Paralela (Companhia Das Letras) and I’m very excited about it, and them. There’s gonna be some good surprises at the São Paulo International Book Biennial at the end of next month.

Anonymous said: I started following you months ago because of your week in scraps project! I reblog every one I see and I don't understand why they don't all blow up!
That’s really nice, thank you! Sometimes I think about making this blog only that sort of thing from me but then where would I embarrass myself, right?
I don’t really “get” why tumblr likes some things and not others. But I love the idea of saving scraps and there’s a lot of that in my upcoming book and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
Thanks for the extra love lately!

Anonymous said: You probably get this often, but "week in scrap" is probably the best concept iv seen in a while! Awesome work!
i actually never get that, so thank you! i don’t know why this past week’s post exploded, but it’s cool that new people are discovering the project, especially now that there’s tons of them to look at.
