Its the Last Day to Register to VOTE!!!

Regardless of my political affiliation or thoughts about government, I feel it is incredibly important to vote! 

The 19th Amendment was passed less the 100 years ago and to me, it would be a disservice to all of the hard work the women before me put in to make this possible for me. I trust and believe they had foresight and it was for their daughters, grand-daughters, great-granddaughters and would be for naught, if I were to not participate. 

 I do feel a little disheartened by politics, or politicians and very sadden and disgusted by the ridiculous ads I see on my lunch rooms television; Each   candidate taking turns bashing one another with vague and conveniently edited clips, perfectly timed grimaces, facial captures and finger pointing... I still feel it is my blessing to vote. Some feel voting is a false sense of importance, a false belief an individual or a whole can make a difference. Some feel voting simply does not matter. I can not allow myself to become numb and still live here, content with all the blessings I have been afforded. 

I feel BLESSED to be able to voice my opinion in my blog, on my facebook through my photography and on the streets. I may be chastised for my opinion sometimes but I can honestly say I am lucky to continue to be able to voice it. 

I have learned it is more important to stand apart from the norm then to blend in... Blending in now-a-days is doing nothing and becoming numb. 

One last thing I feel about this years election, A quote from Susan B Anthony seems to be eerily relevant.

And Another One Bites The Dust...

Another sketch I did recently. Been having a lot of fun sketching with colored pencil. I like the softness while I am scribbling on paper and I also like being able to semi blend mistakes. Having a lot of fun drawing lately!

I will see my all time favorite DJ and producer DJ Premier perform with another legend - Pete Rock !!!! 

My creative slump will be fully shaken after tomorrow night I cant WAIT! 

This is the kind of show you tell your grand kids about! 

I seriously fell in love with hip hop in the 90s and these two have helped to develop my undying love for the true school sound

Visual Recap Of The Last Couple Weeks!


Working at the fellas new studio in Denver, allows us to actually WALK to get coffee at night which is AWESOME! Worked on a lot the last couple weeks... Delton Demarest was hustling away on pieces for his show as well.  Thank you to Studio 72 + Broken Bread familia for allowing me to create in the new building.

Colorado Crush was rad and I had a ton of fun meeting some really fly ladies, seeing old girlfriends and kicking it with Filthe and Opt who were hustling their merch as well! Check out FamaVintage.com for your vintage sports gear! 


As usual - many thanks to my girl Xencs and to El Rey. I am truly blessed to have such an awesome support system and comrades to enjoy working with. 
More H-U-S-T-L-E to come! 
Here are some pictures of the happenings! 
Enjoy!

*Primary Elements* Ping Pong Paddle!

Here is a phone picture of the piece I completed for the show on Sept 6th. 
I used primary colors for mixing and aerosol for some texture.  I designed my paddle based on the four elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth
I have been wanting to paint more in my design style lately and forgot how time consuming it is to paint cleanly with out a lot of build up of acrylic as well as a solid opaque look. 
I had fun painting as usual and will be working some of my designs into future pieces! 
Check out the show on Sept 6th at DVSN WEST in Cherry Creek!
