4 U ATL: Evereman studio visit

#thingsyouprobablyalreadyknow: Evereman is a totally normal dude with a secret super power: he's a goddamn art ninja. I remember the first few times I met him, I didn't realize who he was. But I began noticing an increase in the number of Evereman doo-dads everywhere we went. Then one day I saw him stealthily (no, really, he's king of the art sneak) place a small Evereman block and it all came together for me. Like finding out who Batman is.

Around Atlanta (and New York and anywhere else he goes) Evereman's distinctive emblem is everywhere: little magnets on drain pipes, pasted to buildings, hiding in corners, littered around the BeltLine, slapped on cars...once you get in the habit of noticing them, it's impossible not to see them everywhere.

A few weeks ago, someone (I'm looking at you, City of Atlanta) broke the cardinal rule of Evereman: if an Evereman piece is really big or permanently installed somewhere, you're supposed to leave it. If the trinket is hanging free, laying around, or on a magnet, you can take it. It's a gift. A few weeks ago, Evereman's giant cube was mysteriously removed from Hurt Park (we're still curious to know who exactly did away with it. Seriously, will the real Lame Shady please stand up?)

But hey, Atlanta, shake it off. It's all good. After taking a tour of his studio over the weekend, it's clear that the barrage of Evereman gifts is unlikely to slow down. Take a look at all these cool projects building up to public fruition in the mystery man's studio (can we call it the Bat Cave?)
