RISK X ANTENNA MAGAZINE…. OSIRIS

Osiris Shoes are getting ready to drop my new shoes. We filmed a dope commercial a few months back. They’re always on the pulse, and ahead of the curve. This time they implemented the new process that I’m sure will soon become the “norm”, you can actually scan the bar code and down load the commercial. Very Cool!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Las Vegas M.A.G.I.C. tradeshow

Last week I went out to the MAGIC show in Vegas. Magic is the biggest apparel convention in the U.S. I’ve been attending the trade show for 18 years, 39 consecutive shows. Since I no longer do Third Rail Clothing, I’ve been attending the show in many different capacities, consultant, marketing, promotions, endorsing brands and exhibiting art. It’s really great experiencing every aspect of the show, and it’s ALWAYS a great time!!! This year I was there painting a piece that will be used and launched interactively to promote next years show. When the ad is done it will have a bar code that can be scanned to see the making of the piece. The video will also have a brief interview explaining the concept behind the piece.

CHICAGO/ road trip

As I mentioned on my previous blog post Montana Paint sent Sever and I on a Road trip from New York to New Orleans. The photos of the trip were submitted to PHILLIPS DE PURY & COMPANY in New York for an upcoming exhibit. The group of photos  “Graffiti Tales From The Road” capture the mood and tone of the trip. This exhibit is in conjunction with POLAROID and the photos will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Born This Way and  The Free Arts Foundations. We had a great time ion Chicago, we had a chance to hang with our brothers K.C. and Pose. Here is a wall from the Chicago stop….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MEMPHIS/ road trip

As I mentioned on my previous blog post Montana Paint sent Sever and I on a Road trip from New York to New Orleans. The photos of the trip were submitted to PHILLIPS DE PURY & COMPANY in New York for an upcoming exhibit. The group of photos  “Graffiti Tales From The Road” capture the mood and tone of the trip. This exhibit is in conjunction with POLAROID and the photos will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Born This Way and  The Free Arts Foundations. Here are a few shots from the Memphis stop….

first I had to stop at Graceland and personally apologize to Elvis R.I.P. for bombing his limo with Dream R.I.P. back in the day…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we stumbled into this really cool bar! It had a ton of history, and it was supposedly haunted. The bartender took us on the ghost tour, we didn’t see anything crazy, but you could definitely feel it. She told us Ray Charles as well as “all” the O.G. blues men stayed there back in the day. Upstairs was a brothel. They used to barricade themselves in their rooms for a week at a time, and shoot dope and hang with the lady’s of the night. The owner shared a ton of good old stories and showed us all kinds of crazy s%#*!!! The Stones even wrote Brown Sugar after Mick Jagger was propositioned by a black woman to go upstairs to the brothel with her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We rocked some huge blocks along the tracks……

NEW YORK / road trip

Recently Montana Paint sent Sever and I on a Road trip from New York to New Orleans. With help from my good friend Rudiger Glatz (awesome photographer), I have submitted an exhibit of photos titled “Graffiti Tales From The Road” to PHILLIPS DE PURY & COMPANY in New York. The photos submited capture the mood and tone of the trip. This exhibit is in conjunction with POLAROID and the photos will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Born This Way and  The Free Arts Foundations. The photos submitted capture the mood and tone of the trip, however In the meantime I thought I’d post some shots of the graffiti.

It was too hot to really get busy, but we had a lot of fun….Here’s a few things we managed to hit….
