While visiting my good friends :The Buenos They were nice enough to let me know about the Mike Giant Rebel 8 signing in Melrose at Barracuda. At this signing Mike Giant was doing a LIVE installation piece during the signing. I got there just as he was started and was in TOTAL awe of the artists profound skill to bust such a HUGE installation with just a few POSCA markers. He also did a few other pieces with aerosol cans.
The Finished product. ONCE AGAIN CRAFTED WITH ONLY A FEW POSCA BLACK MARKERS! PROPS!!!
A very good crowd came out to support Barracuda and Mike Giant
While I was there watching Mike Giant get busy. Jae Bueno and his Wife Steph were floating around snapping pictures covering the show for Jae’s blog ***JaeBueno.com*** I spied a gentleman I have been following pretty close through his blog and his clothing line for awhile ***ESTEVAN ORIOL**** And Jae knows him pretty well so I played the fanboy and asked Jae and Steph to snap a pic of me with him. He was MAD cool to chit chat with and no super star bullshit from him. A real dude!
And after the event was done I was wandering around to see if I could somehow come up on a few Rebel 8 stickers with no luck. As I turn around I see a familiar face and another behind that one. Low and behold it is Paul Wall ****Solo Rapper**Expensive Taste*** And Skin Head Rob***The Transplants**Expensive taste**. Very cool and shocking to see these gents milling around. Once again fanboy took over so i got a few snaps with Jae Bueno behind the camera.
Thanks again to Jae and Steph Bueno for snapping the pics and getting the heads up for the event! If anyone like go check out Jae’s Blog JAEBUENO.COM or pick up your latest copies of Lowrider and DUB magazines to see more of Jae and Stephs Photos!
