While painting the wind was blowing so hard that I needed a kind volunteer to help hold my stencil. In exchange he wanted the color red to spraypaint his name on a different panel.


PaperMonster-Progress
I wanted to attempt some pasting and collage work that I had never done in an outdoor piece and everything turned out great.

Out of the hundres of people out for the event I had the pleasure of meeting this teacher and her friends who loved the finished piece.

One of my favorite photos of the day. I was standing in the street and he just kept standing infront of the pannel flexing his muscles so I had to capture it and share it with everyone.

TerraCycle Graffiti Jam 08

August 10, 2008
———————————–
This past Saturday Aug9th I had the great opportunity to take part in the TerraCycle Graffiti Jam 08. It was a beautiful event put on by Leon Rainbow and Albus Cavus and it hosted an incredible lineup of graffiti writers. As one of the only stencil artists in the mix, it was a great chance to meet some fantastic people and share the beauty behind stencil graffiti. One of the most powerful moments of the day was when Pose 2 (www.posetwo.com) invited me to paint alongside him and the other amazing graff writers including the The Wallnuts Crew on a massive wall. It was a beautiful event and I want to thank everyone who came out to support. Check out more pics of the day below.
