Staying Busy

Some really cool projects in the works!  I have been super swamped getting ready for the new year, and all of its endeavors. I managed to get myself into a new exciting medium, which will be revealed in a few months. Until then, I'll keep it moving in the studio!

What is Art Basel?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Miami's annual Art Basel, and the Primary Flight event, here is a great summary of what happens when artists from around the globe, come to one neighborhood, and take over all visual space.

Im currently gathering some amazing photos from our wall, that I will post later in the week. Till then, you can catch a few of the Few and Far ladies painting in the video.

Off The Wall

This was a great week.
 Not only did I have great fun with friends, celebrating my birthday, but I also participated some fierce competition in Seattle's second year of "Off The Wall" aerosol art battle, held at the infamous Sodo legal wall.  The wall is divided up into 15ft by 18ft blocks, for each 3 to 4 person team to complete in 5 hours.
Teams are judged upon : originality, theme, color and composition, can control and technique, and unity.

Once the battle began, we realized that our ladder was no where near tall enough to reach the top.We ran to the nearby alley, and lugged a couple of palettes to our section, making the ladder a good 2 feet taller. They smelled like hot garbage, but it was worth the reach.

From the previous year, I knew it was going to take a lot of teamwork to complete a production in 5 hours. Not only that, one of our members flaked the day before, so we knew we were going to have to really rock it. 

final touches...

It was getting pretty suspenseful towards the end, and definitely a close call. After judges ( KEL 1st, KEEP ONE, Lucky Lucy) were done studying and scoring, it was a 3 point lead...WE WON! I stood there, shocked for a moment. I couldn't believe it. Had I seriously won this battle 2 years in a row?!

Big thanks to 206Zulu, Grafcards, SODO wall, and HD Estates for throwing the event.

Seattle Weekly Artopia promotion

Last week, I had the opportunity to paint a few Seattle Weekly news boxes, to promote the upcoming Artopia festival. So far, I have located one of my boxes, in probably the best spot! In the heart of downtown, off 1st Ave and Harbor Steps, right next to the art museum and Pike Place Market. Now off the hunt down the rest!

ArtPrimo's Molotow High Solid Marker Demo

Check out the new ArtPrimo demo of 179 and I, getting down in the blackbooks, with the Molotow solid markers. These are awesome, high quality, and opague! 179 shows how you can get a great blend with these, unlike those sticky deco paint pens. Stay up-to-date with the newest supplies @ the ArtPrimo Blog.
