Thats really to bad.

Words of wisdom

When it rains, no drains.
would anyone be interested in putting on some sort of show that would benefit his family/honor him.

i agree, very good idea. Start thinking about ideas, Mine is to use his photos, he would have wanted his work seen, not forgotten.
we could do something with his photos, have people donate art and or photos that could be auctioned off to help his family. if anyone would have a hook up for a gallery, that would rule.

Does anyone know if Ian was a member on any of the local UE boards and what his handle was?

I still can't believe it was him, I heard it on the news and read it online 5 times.

God Bless..JoyMundane brought a lot to this photo game. This is extremely disturbing, we all Love his work.

If there are any fund raising efforts happening, let me know. I can't be there, and I never met him but if I can in any way I'd like to contribute.

Besides that I have some merch like TShirts and DVDs that I can donate in his honor, if there is a show or anything where they can be sold.

It's real out there people, we need to watch our backs. JoyMundane and Wonder XYZ within the last month? daaamn

i agree, it would also be cool to hang a bunch of ian's stuff too
we could do a simple zine like book with some of his stuff in it and have them for sale with proceeds going to his family.

some of us should get together and figure out the logistics of putting this together, I never met him, but he was someone who gave a lot to graffiti and street art culture, and I want to help give back.

"we could do a simple zine like book with some of his stuff in it and have them for sale with proceeds going to his family."

i am at a loss for words....
i looked on this site yesterday but it was so loud in my place that i couldnt even imagine this was IAN.
not a close friend..but someone i could always ask questions to and always supported my girlfriend and i to the fullest..i am so deeply hurt by this.....
in a community where sometimes i think we take each other for granted...
this man shot alot of us..and made us look like our true artist forms,in saying that i also feel his great work should be put on display...it really hits home to me that a community can come together an attempt to strenghthen our number and not be judged!!, I know for a fact he and some of us felt that there was alot of anomosity within a dense population of so many artists trying to do the same artform....
i hope now that things may come closer between artists in this community cuz its fucking bullshit how many stupid clicks refer to the photographers as "wannabe's"
or graf. toys...
one thing to remember.....one day we will all be judged,untill that day lets see the aesthetics in this world and keep documenting our great culture!!!
your flicks will always be with us as forever................

"THE JOY OF THE MUNDANE"

lets keep finding joy...
