After about 5 days of record breaking heat and air condition advisories we finally got a break in the heat which coincided with a lil crew link up and some special guest heavy hitters for good measure. The plan, simple, link wth Kems Geser and Twesh and do a nice 3a wall while having a blast. Success. In the spirit of the more the merrier, it turned out Jurne was in town and in a early round trade we managed to pull, Shank Williams, Jick Johnson, and Jedifith the elemental terrestrial.
Kems and Twesh hi the road at 5:00am. Geser got scooped up along the way at 6:00am. They drove for a while. Hugh Hevner awoke from a pleasant nights sleep at 8:30am, well rested and soon well redded. I had coffee and some breakfast took a shower, hung out with boobah and finally got the car packed. The Kem car reached my crib at 9:40ishAm. And we were on the way, after my wife proceeded to talk to Geser about his kids for 20 minutes, love you honey, but we gots to roll out. Clockwork ensued. There is nothing like painting on an active basket ball court to keep you on your toes. Some how the basketball had Gesers number hit his wall, cans, back, head, more then a few times. All in the line of duty.
Geser and I had spoken a bit about colors, which is always an epic conversation. Shit was easier back when there were 14 american colors to choose from. Now it’s a project to choose colors. We settled on a nice range of aquas and oranges but kept the plan loose, when ever there is a significant hike too and from a wall you always have to mindful of what you can get done in the time you have.
early progress on the way to fillville
There is nothing better the doing a wall with a bunch of talented and focused writers, but its a bummer to not see more of everyones process. You look up one minute to see a partially cracked sketch, then the next thing you know theres a full blown fill you missed happening completely done. So the middle of the day blurs unitl its photo time.
Ges X Rath 3a UPS X Molotow
The last thing I remember seeing before leaving was kem 5 holding his phone in one hand, starring at it like it called him a name, and his right shoe in his other hand; his Socked foot sort of mushing it to a strip of sun warmed and now gooey tar, ill placed to cover a crack on the blacktop below. I imagined him stepping away only to have the tar claim the sock and pull it right off his foot. Its a jungle on the East Coast baby, Another Adventure Awaits!
