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.

Here are some photos from last weekend’s Style-A-Thon 2013 at Writerz Blok. Thank you to Ironlak for flying out Jurne as our special guest and for supplying paint and some goodies for the participating artists! The DJ’s, MC’s, and B-Boys did their thing throughout the day and kept the crowd entertained while the artists worked on their pieces. Overall, it was a great event and we’re glad to be able to enjoy the day and produce new works with great friends and artists. Once again, a very special thank you goes out to Jurne and Ironlak for helping to arrange for his trip out on short notice!

So after a non-eventful Saturday night (we were beat), we were picked up on Sunday morning, taken to get breakfast, and then dropped back off at the wall. We were burning through cans like nobodies business so we had to grab a few more cans from the shop in order to finish. The weather again, started off great, however it did warm up quite a bit in the afternoon but not enough to be an issue. Zone had to catch an earlier flight back to San Diego so we wished him safe travels and proceeded to put the finishing touches on the production. WST would again like to thank Beks, Solar, Hazer, Dope, and the rest of the staff at Get Use 2 It for the tremendous hospitality. Overall, it was an great experience and we had an amazing weekend… and made some great new friends in the process.
Until next time Texas!
