Final pics of the collaboration with Risk.

Nathan and Risk Collaboration
You may or may not know that "Risk" from "MSK" and I were friends and partners in the graffiti scene decades ago! It has been over 20 years that we lost touch going our separate ways but through new technology and mutual friends, we are back again! This was a very unique experience for me, I love the idea that 2 friends that went their separate ways, one through Fine Arts and me, through Illustration, coming back together after all those years and doing it again with our new found talents and experiences! It's so cool to see the before and after pictures of what we did long ago and what we accomplished now. This was certainly a wild ride! Time that past was not an issue, we caught up with each other while painting the mural together at his studio. Please come see us at Hurley Space gallery this Saturday from 6-10pm!
