OAK: What are you most looking forward to about the release of 1 Page at a Time?
AJK: On October 8th I am going to take a very long, deep breath, then let it out very slowly. I’ve been really anxious because the book is so personal. It’s full of my own mantras and ideas, and you know, if people hate the book then it’s obviously personal and I should take it to heart and let it ruin my life…
Did a cool little interview & studio tour with OAK that’s up today. We talk about what it’s like to live and work in the same space, fall weather in NYC, plus naps and candy. Thanks to Conor Riley & Jorge William Concha!

I make a whole lot of tangible products through my INTERNET GIFT SHOP and they’re all really personal and pretty literal. But just in case, here’s a brief backstory to a handful of items, from a letter I sent recently.

Did a cool interview for the Call It Spring zine, online now and in ALDO stores this fall! Thanks to Ben Pobjoy & William Joos.
Here’s a question I liked:
Can you tell us how the internet and its memes make in to your work?
I think we’re all trying to balance the internet and real life, to varying degrees of success. I think the internet and meme culture is rapidly shaping language, it comes with its own humour and understanding, and also informs the way we digest words and images. Bold, outlined type carries an obvious meaning. I napped my way through media studies courses, but there’s probably some good “medium is the message” stuff here.

- I have been posting 90% my own shit lately, but honestly, I just have a lot to share. I need to stop feeling guilt about it, I mean that’s why you’re here and besides it’s not like we all don’t scroll past each other so fucking fast that we barely catch a thing.
- Current events are depressing, polarizing, I don’t feel qualified to speak on most of it, and it’s painful enough to read, I don’t want to be the guy that reminds you of how awful everything in the world really is sometimes. I keep writing posts and deleting them. There is a lot, my tumblr feed is very death-heavy, I think it’s good to stay current and I am current, but also, sometimes I miss just looking at cute selfies of everyone.
- My social life is nice and fun and I am happy to have friends in different places, but I definitely work a lot. Too much. Work is getting me down. When I am not in the office I am keeping busy with my little stuff, I plan weekends around the post office and other projects. But I’m headed to Baltimore with my boyfriend this long weekend and am very excited for that. I actually haven’t been since February and that is the longest stretch since I moved to New York.

I hung out with NYLON & took them to my favorite places for the august Reebok Classics min-mag in the August issue. Still pinching myself.

I got to meet Adam Kurtz this weekend, who despite his balloon, is not an asshole and a rather nice individual. He’s one of the people who really inspires me in this messy place called the internet, right in line and in ways that authors and artists Austin Kleon and Jessica Hagy have. There’s something so frank, funny, and transparent in the work he creates; I wish more people followed suit.
Anyways, it’s really awkward and awesome meeting someone who you feel like you know after following their work on the internet. But awkwardness typically leads to really interesting things.
Adam’s book is coming out in October and you should definitely pre-order it here. I did a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to read it.
Adam - thanks for being so friendly and for smiling for a photo. :)
wowwwww so nice! i had a really nice time at pete’s mini zine fest, it’s always a smaller, cuter event and a good chance to meet and actually talk to people. meghan had a super sweet camera and came through taking photos. a perfect document of a great afternoon. thanks!

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.
