The sequential art show was lovely and I was excited to see all the other comic art. It’s inspiring to see the many different ways to tell your story pictorally and sometimes with no words at all.
The first Pilsen coaster show was a success and everyone contributed such original pieces. It was fun to see what everyone came up with and the coaster trades among the artists was a hit! Here is one of my coasters. I made a set of monster kids on their picture day.
Road trip with friends for the 4th of July weekend to Detroit/Ann Arbor/St. Joseph. Detroit Industry mural by Diego Rivera at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Front Street show hosted by Sara McCool. Her show streams live for an hour of discussion on different topics with local artists, activists, etc.
Our topic was “Graffiti-ing. What’s it all about?” and it was myself, local graffiti artists Rome, and the anonymous Ghetto P. I think I did okay despite stumbling on my thoughts sometimes. I think I had a bit of stage/camera fright.
I would like to add here that you don’t have to bomb and you don’t have to be in a crew. That you can be skillful and do it safely and be successful by what you’re saying to the people and even make some income. The message and inspiring others is very important to me.
Oh also – a correction, I don’t know why I said yes but I have not been paid for any of the mural art I have done so far but it is absolutely possible in the future, Cheers to Sara & Front Street!
