I was asked a few months back if I would be interested in creating the official event and tee shirt artwork for Paint Louis 2014. Being familiar with some of the history behind the event made my decision a “no brainer” and I gladly accepted the challenge. I attempted to create a piece that was relatively easy to read, yet not watered down in any way stylistically. I also had to work with their color limitations for screen printing so I tried to keep the pallet to a minimum. I ended up going with a Gold, Navy, Black, and Lt Grey color scheme which is similar to their local NFL team’s colors. I also threw out a few more color options I liked for good measure. In the end, I believe they made some changes to the colors for their event tee which I am eager to see this weekend in person at the event this weekend.

Paint Louis is taking place from August 29th through Sept 1 in St. Louis, MO. If you are anywhere near the are, we encourage you to  come out to check out all of the artwork and events that will be taking place this weekend. Saratoga Sake and myself will be there repping Wild Style Technicians along with our freind Unique ASK XMEN so feel free to stop by and say hi if you see us out there working!

I was extremely honored a couple of months back to be asked if I could help arrange a line up and help host Ironlak BBQ Burners San Diego to be held at Writerz Blok. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity as San Diego has been a bit slow on the number of events as of late and it’s something that I enjoy doing. Plus it was a great opportunity to get everyone out for a day of painting, music, and free BBQ! It took a while for us to get the date on the locked in on the calendar but with the help of Sergio from the Blok we got it done and the event took place August 16th, 2014. Some of the artists who painted that day include:
Brisk TCR

Overall, it was a great day of painting and BBQ with good people that will go down in San Diego Graffiti history. The Writerz Blok team of Sergio and Jose should be commended for their great work in hosting the event and managing the Ironlak paint and supplies for the artists. Also, a big thanks to DJ Kid Riz for bringing out the Turntables and Sound and in addition to lining up a few more DJ’s to keep it lively throughout the day. Lastyly, on behalf of Writerz Blok, the San Diego Hip Hop community, and all of the artists involved, and myself, I would like to extend a huge thank you to Ironlak for all of their support in helping bring BBQ Burners to San Diego!
