"Rain" 1989 by FLITE , FIZ, and STAIN. I was on the bus coming home from school. The new kid in my class was in the seat in front of me. I noticed some tags on his folder and a conversation began. That day I met FIZ from Philly who later introduced me to FLITE. Meeting writers, skaters, bboys, punks, skins, back in the pre-internet days had a special magic to it...or maybe we were just young and it was all new. In any case inspiration goes a long way and I appreciate having grown up in that era.

@billymode and I have been painting together since 1989. Here's a detail shot from yesterday's work in Astoria, Queens. I worked with permission from a photograph taken by @brittsense. Her work captures the heart of urban life.
A well spent Saturday in Astoria Queens with my man @billymode for Welling Ct Mural Project. Photo reference with thanks from @brittsense
