Early Canvases

Just came across some super old Pieces. Slick and I won the world graff battle held in England (circa 88). When I returned home I was hit up by collectors for a bunch of canvases…. Came across these shots of some very early canvas work……

I think this one was cut out foam core with aerosol, marker, pastels, and water color….. I used to do a lot of these…..

Third Rail…

Everybody keeps asking me t0 post old Third Rail stuff. For those of you who don’t know Third Rail was a clothing line that I owned and operated for many years. Third Rail was very influential in pioneering street wear.  It was very successful and we had a lot of good times…. Here’s a couple random shots of parties, catalogs, and what not…

DANNY DIABLO in store at MONTANA LA

We’ve had some really cool events at Montana LA  over the past few months, and the 2011 rooster looks super hot as well! These events are very cool because we pick people who are not very accessible yet are a driving force in our lifestyle….. The Danny Diablo signing is a perfect example of this. He is someone who will go down in the hardcore hall of fame.  His career is ever expanding and overlapping…. The word is he’s bring a few surprise guests as well…..This is going to be a good one, don’t miss it!

New Orleans

A few weeks ago I visited “The Big Easy”. It was my first time home since Katrina, and the wreckage was amazing. I felt as if I was in a twilight zone episode as I cruised through the Ninth Ward. There were huge schools and hospitals that were just abandoned. These buildings weren’t old or dilapidated, they were newer buildings that were flooded and people just never came back. it was crazy, vending machines still had food and drinks in them…..
