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:
Pose 2 CBS
Sake 1 WST IBM
Unique Izzy WST
Arest WST Zone WST DazeRoc WST
Style TFL CBS
and Ewok MSK courtesy of Ironlak!
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!
I was very honored to have been able to have opportunity to help out a couple of good friends and crew mates execute their idea for a Tony Gwynn Mural Tribute. Tony Gwynn is a baseball legend and San Diego icon who was respected as much off as he was on the field for his craftsmanship, character, and loyalty to the City of San Diego. This project was spearheaded by Zone, who came up with the idea and Mr. Padre sketch, and Sake, who created the amazing Tony Gwynn portrait in addition to a lot of organizational, logistics, and media promotional work. I played a supporting role in helping to obtain some support for supplies from Ironak, WST, and Writerz Blok in addition to numerous digital mock ups, and numerous late nights of grunt work painting. Credit goes to Unique ASK XMEN for helping out with painting and to DazeRoc for also assisting with painting and video documentation of the project.
The entire process was an awesome experience of which to be a part. The scale of this mural made the project somewhat challenging but I’m very proud of how the team came together to make this vision a reality for the City of San Diego. Thank you to Rocco at Undisputed Gym for allowing us to use his building as canvas. And last but not least, we appreciate all of the support, financial and otherwise, and the tremendous feedback we’ve received in the process of creating this tribute!
A few of us got invited to do some live painting at Writerz Blok for the Society group from C3 Church who were having an event in the yard. I ended up finding some space on this wall next to Sake who was already painting when I arrived and Jest squeezed in on the end. Awesome way to spend a Thursday… Thanks to Writerz Blok for hooking up some Yardmaster and Ironlak so we could do our thing.
Unique, Sake, and myself planned a little paint date a couple of weeks back which we scheduled for the Monday, March 10th. Since we wanted to keep iy simple, quick and inexpensive we decided to roll with solid black fills. None of us came prepared with outlines so we all free style’d our pieces which actually worked out fairly well. This was all of our first time outlining with Sugar Artist Acrylic and it worked just about as well as any paint I’ve ever used. I personally think Ironlak knocked it out of the park with this new brand.
Great time as always painting with good friends. I’m personally pretty satisfied with the results as well my personal progress in my ability to pull off relatively decent work without a sketch or blueprint. In the past this was a recipe for disaster for me… proving we are all students of the game until the very end.
