SPRAY HOT MESS, SNAPPIN HOTNESS. NOT FAR TO GO THUGSPORT, GAME GAIN, TOUCH A DIRTY RAINBOW. LOATHING TOMORROW, ALL THAT MATTERS IS NOW. The phrase is read starting on the bottom left towards the right, then right to left in the center row, and left to right at the top.

PERSUE RIME & CR IN HOLLYWOOD

Back in 2011, CR painted this wall in Hollywood.

Last week Persue and I came through to repaint the wall. Instead of covering over the previous work, we tried to maintain some of CR’s original strokes. Where the pieces overlap the black we tried changing the color way over to blue…

Original sketch by Persue…

PJ getting us started…

PAINTING A NICHE OUTLINE / GENTLEMENS CHAPTER

Showed up in Hollywood looking to paint over this mess that SONY left behind over a recent Few & Far wall in Hollywood. I decided to paint this straight forward sketch by NICHE VTS

After some revisions and some experimental tricks I managed to somehow make it fit with the rest of the wall. Added in a chick taking a phone pic of an oiled up meathead…

Ewok all out, around the corner…

ONLY TIME WILL TELL

Our initial concept for this wall was to take the phrase “Only Time Will Tell” and split it up into four sections on the wall. Each word in every section represented a season, starting with winter and ending in fall.

As the wall dragged on our ideas to support the theme got more retarded; more dysfunctional. Having a limited amount of ladders and scaffold we spent a lot of time waiting for others to finish.

Dysfunctional points of interest:
* Coked up Charlie Bronson Yeti saying “AAAAARRRGGGHHHH” to a timid young chick
* Santa says yes to 4LOKO
* Jesus turning tranny was unintentional. The legs were on the wall first. Intended to come randomly from behind the “Will” piece. Later I sketched up Jesus chillin’ at the beach. Revok said I sketched it too small and too far over to the left. I ended up buffing the first Jesus sketch out and painted it larger and more to the right. It took us a good two hours before we connected the possibility that the legs could be Jesus’s. Tired and late as fuck we laughed about it and embraced the idea… Fuckin’ Tranny Jesus!

Painted with: Vans Omega (Australia), Score (Germany), Dabs & Myla (Australia), Revok, Deus (New Zealand), Askew (New Zealand) & Witnes

Letters by: ONLY (VANS), TIME (SCORE), WILL (REVOK), TELL (ASKEW)

Additional camera duties were taken on by Jersey Joe aka the Coach aka Joseph-Style.

Character Wall In Culver City, LA

After our last wall in Silverlake, Dabs, Myla, Craola and I set out to try another experimental wall that centered around characters and design elements. This time we brought in Witnes, Augor and Trav, figuring it all out as we went. Our goal was to finish this all in one day. Most of us showed up with no real idea of what we were going to paint that day. Witnes retreated to his ride, took a series of bong hits, and drew up a rough sketch of that funny orange dude in the center. Good times-
