ML: Can you tell us a little bit about the backdrop here?
LR: The “Big Head” was a real fun piece for me. I love incorporating the environment into my pieces. I came around the corner taking a pee break one day and I was like damn those windows could be glasses.
ML: What influences your art the most?
LR: I think that my environment really influences my art. Living in an urban place like Trenton keeps things real for me. I try to keep a little grit in all my pieces. Also, painting with different people really teaches me a lot. I have learned most of what I know from other graffiti artists.
ML: Do you enjoy collaborating with other artists?
LR: I really like to collaborate with different artists. It makes it fun and when done well it brings the strengths and styles of different artists together to create a stronger piece of art than could be done alone. One thing I have learned from years of collaborating is that not everyone can work together. It helps to have similar artistic visions or a willingness to be open minded and adaptive.
Had an idea for a basketball theme. So I ran with it. I added the sketch then rocked a few layers of water color. Finished it off with some gouache outlines and highlights.
I worked on this over the last couple of weeks. Freestyle with pen & ink. I added some water color washes and splashes.
