In late July I was invited to paint some sheets of corrugated roofing on a remote island off the coast of Maine. There was a mid-summer Dionysian celebration in the woods that included two DJ’s, a pig roast, six kegs, and one graffiti writer in the middle of it all. The “Smith” piece is by PYSE, a dedication to the man who makes the event possible (and of course a nod to the NYC RTW legend). Black-Cherry PYSE burner was lighting up the dance floor all night. Check out L.M.F.D. aka DJ Luke MF Duke, he was spinning wax for us after bringing crates of vinyl over on a skiff with an outboard.
Last week I was up late watching Netflix and had the pleasure of watching “The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat”, an animated film based on the comic strip by the famous R. Crumb. Being an alley cat myself, I knew we’d eventually get down. Smoking Burner by PYSE, Fritz the Cat by a VERY special anonymous guest (Fritz sketch by PYSE). I’ve been really stoked on transparent paints lately, evidenced here by the starburst on the far left and the smoke drifting from Fritz’s, a ‘hem, cigarette.
Danny’s new Custom Mural for Dogtown Daycare & Boarding, Lexington, KY!
Dogtown Daycare owner Tiffany Morrow has commissioned a brand new exterior mural from Journeyman Artist Danny Diamond. The artwork depicts a futuristic motif of her customers as copper-chromed androids delivering their pups to Dogtown. Lexington’s silhouetted skyline and a warm pink and orange Kentucky sunset make up the background which is highlighted by Downtown Lexington’s landmark skyscraper “Big Blue”.
