I had a very strange dream with Louis Armstrong the other night. I don't remeber much, but I remeber giving him a hug and I couldnt get my arms around him and He smelt like a musty old nightclub.

Getting Up

"Getting Up" was the first book about NYC graffiti that I got my hands on, This is not my original copy. I had a hard back version of "GU" If my memory serves me correctly, it was an all black cover with a photo of a train on the front. I actually racked it from my Junior High school library when I was in the eight grade...and a bad ass!  I'm not to sure what ever happen to that hard back copy, Im sure karma caught up with me.  My 2nd copy which wasn't as cool, but was still a "first edition" was confiscated from the cops in 1994 when I got caught up with a sting operation. The one im holding in the photo is a copy I found online.

One of my favorite page in the book.

2 hype

I Painted this skull in between Me and Daze's pieces, I have no idea what I painted next to the skull. From the look of things it was a UGA re-union production painted in 1991 down at the old Euclid ave yard.

Birthday 1982

This is me with a really bad hair cut and E.T. hanging out on a Brand new "HARO FREESTYLER" givin to me from Bob Haro himself and if that wasn't the coolest thing ever......He also signed his name on the frame with a dremel, right on the plate that connects the frame and the steering column. Years later like a teenage jerk I was, I sold the whole Haro bike including the skyway mags, ame grips, bear claws, you know the works. Just because I wanted to buy some spray paint at the Spring Valley Swap Meet.........IDIOT!

I was commissioned by the client to paint a picture of his favorite picture of a nude Victorian model. While I was painting, we got approached by then newspaper. The vacant lot is right down the street from were I was staying during the time I was living in El Paso.

The lot still looks the same after all these years

Miles got some new shoes the other day....not bad, considering they are not PRO-Keds or Chuck Taylors. (Im talking CHEAP shoes here!) Kids shoes really suck nowadays not alot of choices and I get frustrated trying to find my kid some shoes,  Miles doesn't really care he's happy regardless but I want him looking sharp! When I was a strapping young lad my folks would load us in the station wagon and head over to kinney shoes, stride rite or some other spot and I usually would get some Hush Puppies or some sort of sportie looking shoe like "Whiz Kids." or Zips. Now a days it's usually krocks or some kind of  godawful shoe with really bright colors and bad design.  I wonder what the designer of these shoes are thinking do they have kids them selves? What type of shoes do they wear? It's definitely some one who has no style or taste......hmmmm its definitely not a "Cordwainer."

....Alert! Alert!.... kill all huminoids.

This year Miles wanted to be a Robot. So we made him this robot costume, "The Z-m99." It turned out a little top heavy for Miles. We still need to add some more bolts to the costume and find some gloves. Once this happens we will take better shots of "Z-m99"........Unfortunately, the photos turned out really bad and this is one of the better ones. 

Here is a few shots of  the process.
