Hello friends, Below is a 3 x 8 foot drawing I created for the KDU/Diesel Only the brave art show in nyc. The concept for this piece was to illustrate through image and lettering visual call outs to every grafitti artist, designer and illustrator that inspired me through their creative bravery. This included graf artists from San Francisco in the 1990s where I grew up, all the way up to current times working as part of the KDU.
The artwork itself was loosely sketched in pencil then filled in with pen and ink, taking me roughly 2 weeks of heavy line work. Inspiration for these piece most obviously are my kdu counterparts. Past inspirations though have been Twist, kaws, reminesce, ICP (San Fran), saiman chow and mike giant.
