(Editor’s Note: Even though everyone is talking about Todd James this week, we wish to point out that this post was prepared long before the debut of his twerkin’ bears for Miley Cyrus.)

Todd “REAS” James cut his creative teeth as a youth by writing graffiti in New York City before eventually expanding his output into art galleries, printed matter and television.
