just one more thing...

just one more thing - the columbo wall

i remember as a youngster staying with my aunt hannah when mom and dad were on the town, usually a weekend and usually just the right time to catch the latest columbo mystery... i was too young to understand the idea of the "everyman" hero taking down the wealthy and elite, but i certainly caught on to the concept of someone being much more than they appeared. at first glance he was a pushover that the murderer brushed off as a schlub and by the final scene columbo had worked them over and nailed 'em to the wall.

i hadn't seen the show in years, but when peter falk died recently and RAS said he wanted to do a tribute wall i was all in. i felt like the classic "just one more thing" pose was perfect so i got to cutting a life size (or what i assume is close to life size since i don't have a scouting report on peter falk) stencil of the lieutenant. the rest as they say, is history.

shouts out to RAS for the idea, LUV1 and lil' LUV for the documentary work and MEK for some well placed advice and the letterwork on the quote... and rest in peace to the man, peter falk. enjoy the video, some details and of course columbo getting on george wendt's last nerve...

garden variety - trenton, nj

a great collection of mc's showed up at the galamo in trenton last saturday night for the may edition of the garden variety show. s.a.g.e. collective represented as well, with KASSO running the show and LUV1 and i getting down on the walls. LUV rocked a beautiful portrait of the late, great gil scott heron and i dropped a couple of mix tapes (man i miss tapes). i also got down with some rare freehand work, putting up a big blue monster rockin' the mic. a good time was had by all.

scratch & dirty

here are two images created as part of sedso design's "place your art here" project at the walnut room in philadelphia. they posted a great line-up of musicians to choose from, so narrowing it down was tough. finally settled on ol' dirty bastard of the wu tang clan and the mighty upsetter himself, lee "scratch" perry. both images are watercolor and spraypaint on paper...
