part two 7/19

Here was that photo!

And one more, just for fun!  


Dear Minneap and ST.P graff writers, drawers, artists, and supporters,
Sorry for the absentee bloglording but while away from this blogary, I've been out discovering some really neat opportunities!  First was a chance to do some aerasol paints for Pat at Crossfit Mendota, a gym opening soon near the Airport...if you want details about crossfit, lemme know!

Second, this is a link to the Rhymesayers homepage - if you have not purchased Atmosphere's "The Family Sign" album yet, treat yourself.  This album hit me just right (write), the prose writing of the lyrics gave words to the emotions of the moment, in an organic way, allowing them to be integrated and absorbed with love, rather than resistance, in this experience we call life, for me personally.  My Key is dark and ominous, the beginning.  But as you journey through this CD, getting towards the end, like at My Notes, opens to sunshine, gratitude, and positivity - super forward moving energy.  I felt like a journal was set to music, and a poet poured out the heart stuff.  Cannot believe there are folks right in our neighborhood making music like dis. Awesome.

Lastly, trying to get at my work/marketing - here is an illustration I want to disperse as a business card.  Your thoughts?  Your criticisms?  Your love?  Lemme know, and until next week (I hope) I will see you either on the streets writing, maybe in a coffee shop, or even better a friends house.
peace and love,

6/9 part II

Also wanted to put this up, snapped this pic in Lower Town St. Paul.  Apparently the graff ninja's are out, and not happy about the no parking here signs.  Lastly, after a few days of artist block, feeling frustrated by not being able to produce art work, get ideas down, or enjoy the process of creation, I felt a break through!  Shown here is: PLAY - Einstein stated that play is the most important, and serious form of scientific research.  I believe the same can be said for art.  We strive so hard to get our ideas down, and because we never got the chance to learn how to draw well in school, we are upset with ourselves and our artwork.  I want to actively strive to change this, to empower and enable more of us to use or creative tendency to play with pens and pencils, and express ourselves in ways we find interesting, enjoyable, and unique.  Much love to Minnesota's Musicians that played at Mear's Park tonight, they put on an incredible show!!

June 9th!

Today being 6/9 I thought it was definitely sexually appropriate to post some new work.  If you enjoy juvenile humor laugh now, if not let's move along ackwardly.

Do you know a recent grad whom you'll be sending congratulatory salutations to?  This was done for my cousin, I can make you one for

May 27! part II

This was the tag board I was carrying, wildstyle lettering, but I would like some feedback on how to color, add highlights, and finisht the glow around the lettering.  Any help would be appreciated!  Done with sharpies, posca markers, and hardcore markers.

If you were handed one of these last evening, you are in the right blogspot.  Please take a look at the art work on this blog, if you have questions, please let me know!

May 18th!

Dear MLGers of the Twin Cities,

Here is some scrawl, please check it.  There is a painter from Kyoto who flourished during the mid 1700's. His name is Ito Jakuchu, and he painted a series entitled "Animals and Plants in color"

By creating a series with a consistent theme, he was able to develope and express an aesthetic and philosophical ideal.  Natural beauty, heroic dignity, and even greatness within the very small are expressed clearly due to his excellence in brushwork.

I feel keeping a sketchbook allows our subconscious thought currents to become more apparent. Here's a sketch from the past coupla weeks.
