I have a tee is this shows, I also sent a bunch of stickers for the trade table. Get along and check it out, loads of friends and awesome artists involved, wish i could be there. Thanks to Marcus Dixon for making it happen!
Here is the latest video ive made, featuring Sofles, Twoone and Bonsai creating a huge mural out in Roxburgh Park. Really cool to see a centre that far out embracing art as part of its design. Was great fun to make, props to Daltron Labs for the Heli Cam footage.
Pleased to have a cool little Sub interview as part of the 10 page Violent Soho feature.
The awesome Bianca (who happens to be 2011 zine maker of the year!) did the feature and went at it deep enough to actually track me down and ask me about how the art for the Violent Soho record came about, really great to be featured and that people are pushing to create interesting content.
