Grafitti

A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine, Marco Garcia, and I did a Grafitti gig for a client.I got a ton of photos, and am finally downloading them. Here's a few:
The Tag Master, Marco, about to begin his masterpiece...
THIS was too funny. The guests at the event were encouraged to grab a spray can and "Be A Tagger" for the night, painting whatever they wanted. Part of our job was to be "greeters" to our painting area, help the guests, encourage them, and worse case scenario, cover up any profanity or obscene images they might try to write or draw.

Anyway, among the guests was this guy, a for real rocket scientist who grew up in Brooklyn and was a real "Tagger" in his teens. He painted on underpasses, buildings, subways, all while being chased by police, he told us. So we gave him a stylin' paint suit and a can of paint. He was the real deal! Wow, in his fifteen minutes with us he really knocked out a lot of the sponsor company's logo that we were to draw an abstract version of. Free help! Gotta love that!
Here's one of me painting up high. ( And getting "high" from the fumes, LOL. )
The final logo side. The client loved it!
