I've been busy working on this mural project in DC. It's called the Edgewood Mural Project. It's been really awesome. More awesome than I could have ever imagined. The combination of youth from DC with the DC youth employment program and the artist gathered for the project-DC arts and humanities- a super A plus project. PHOTO BY: Richard Chu
but in addition to what the drawing on the wall means to me, ... I hope it also represents...strength in women, and having the power to live beyond something you may have thought would have crushed you. I want it to represent the Pink Line Project, which I feel is a very new, yet important project in DC. The DC punk scene. Code Pink. Breast Cancer. Girl Power.
It represents Innocence. Pure Happiness. A Peaceful memory.
Working on this mural with these artist has been a real dream of mime. Just being in the presence of Chor Boogie and Pose 2 paint has been a inspiration beyond words. And the beauty of josh's piece with out a doubt, one of my FAIV pieces of art I have seen in a long long time. Someone keeps asking "where's the history" in the mural? I think it's in Josh's piece. And Quest Skinner is the biggest little bomb I have ever met. This girl does it all! and with such an imagination! Such a unique part of DC art history!
please come out and join us this monday at 4pm for the unveiling of the mural. D
I used to live on a farm outside of Athens , Ga. We paid 100 bucks a month to live in this old cabin. The guy who owned the farm was an amazing musician along with a bunch of other amazing musicians who used to always hang around. He had briefly played with the Vigilanties of Love. The cabin in this video is the actual cabin i lived in. Such a great song! Such a great cabin!
