Check out this awesome piece I did at The GR818ER 2nd Anniversary: A Family Affair!

It was a great event for the community — lots of activities for the little ones along with some serious dancing and battles for the bigger ones. Oh, and of course delicious eats & fat beats for all the ones. 😉

to give you an idea of how big it is:

GR818ERS KEEP IT GRRRREAT!!!

If you don’t know about this organization please head over to www.TheGr818ERS.com to see what they’re all about!

As some of you dear readers may recall, last year there was an event called the “Graffyard Boogie” that was put on by the one and only GR818ERS.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the event last year, but they kindly saved me a space and I busted a “Welcome to the Dojo” piece that has been burning for over a year.

As schedules would have it this year, I was able to make it to the event and got to paint with the other artists this time around.  There was dope music, mad food, FAMiLY, great vibes, and of course, beauty to be had all around.  I was ready to get down!!!

Wanting to stay with the theme of the Dojo, but also wanting to smoke my own previous piece, I decided to go with a funKED ouT Dragon production:

Did this awesome cover-up on a longtime homie of mine.  We grew up both loving hiphop and now all these years later we’re both still dedicated to our art.  It was dope working on this piece – we had mad memories and laughs.  Some shit don’t change! 😀

The pic underneath is what the original tattoo was and my freehand drawing/concept for the piece:

AND iT DON’T STOP!!!

I am very proud to announce that Phoenix’s first Center for Urban Arts will be opening to the public this weekend!!!  Bring the whole family out for a real hip-hop affair.  For Sat there will be live painting, music, dance performances, and great vibes.  For Sun, there will be several dance workshops available (including one taught by a JABBAWOCKEE!!) and a special GRAFFiTi WORKSHOP held by yours truly.  Throw your whole neighborhood in the car and come down for a taste of the real thing.

i’ll be painting LiVE @ the Musical Instrument Museum next Thurs, 9/15/11.  Come check out the largest museum of it’s kind in the world, right here in ol’ Phoenix AZ.  The festivities start @ 6pm and will go until 8:30pm.  Bring the fam, bring a friend, bring a date for an evening filled with music, dancing, and ART (by yours truly.) 😉
