Definitely one of the coolest things I’ve been asked to do this year. I participated in NBC’s The American Spirit special. Many great Americans have been asked to participate in this special over the years. The segment airs during the 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular. Only in America can a graffiti artist be celebrated along side President Obama and second man to walk on the moon Buzz Aldrin! My father was on his death bed when he heard the news of this segment. We have battled over graffiti and my decision to be an artist fro many years when I was younger. I’ll never forget his smile. I was proud to give him a little light in those last few days. Rest In Peace pops!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to Prague with my friends from Osiris shoes. It was their international sales meeting. I saw their upcoming line, and went over some future Risk series shoes. Amongst all the business we had a great time. I participated in a Big Lebowski bowling tournament, saw an incredible skate contest a the famous Mystic Skate park, and of course fit a few pieces in….Good times!
I did this piece on a canvas at Mystic Skate park. They auctioned it off to help raise money for the local flood victims. Unfortunately they had a flood that cause a lot of damage a few days prior to our arrival. The local Skate shop, Horse Feathers, Osiris, and Mystic Skate park organized the benefit with the local TV station. Great people! Good times! We left this piece for Horse Feathers, the local skate shop. They had a great display of my stuff. The shop is insane! If anyone has any of the shots of the display please send them! I didn’t get any….
