Paint For The Cure

It was my pleasure to work with Mrs. G’s and the Susan G. Koman Foundation. Myself and 5 selected students painted fridges to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness.

Freestyle Fridays Graffiti Paper Edition

Last Weekend I participated in the Estria Battle NYC, in Brooklyn. At the Battle we all got this Graffiti Paper from Cresent Paper. They also used it for the James Top Blackbook Competition. I met the rep and she was very cool. I have worked with many papers and I was a bit skeptical about using spray paint and markers on it. I also use water color so lets throw that in. When I cracked the paper I noticed it was very smooth. I did two test pieces the results are:

Watercolor and Ink Pens

(little bit of wrinkling normal with water color)

Added Some Spray Paint With Scrap Paint
