Block Printed Scarf

This is my first attempt at block printing on fabric and first attempt at gradients. I dyed some scarves a while back and finally got around to printing. Even though I currently suck at it, I find the process intriguing. #handprinted#textiles#blockprinted#handcarvedstamps

ICYMI:—-> I got a write up on L.A. Weekly.com

Im so freaking busy!!! Ive been grinding away every since #The BlkGrrrl BookFair. I haven’t even posted stuff about #FlashTag installation down @CAAM. But i’ll get to that laters. Here is a link to the article about me in the L.A. Weekly. You can see it here–> http://www.laweekly.com/arts/street-art-british-punk-japanese-cute-and-black-culture-all-in-one-artist-5460319. I have events scheduled for the rest of the month. Satuday, 4/18 from 12-4 pm, I’ll be part of the Zine Space at The Craft and Folk Museum on Wilshire. On April 25, 2015, I’ll be speaking on the Street Art Panel @CAAM about the #FlashTag Event & Installation. It would be great to have a big turn out for this historical event that happening.

I’ll catch up soon as a get a chance.

Peace Love & Light

Don’t Miss My ArtShow @ The BLKGRRRL BookFair!

I Hope My Art Offends You!: The Mini Pickannini Show
I Hope My Art Offends You!: The Mini Pickannini Show

Hello Lovelys: Im doing a installation of my personal/private work…..Meaning my Pickanninies. I usually reserve this work for private viewing but since the producers of The Black Grrrl BookFair so graciously provided me with a safe, nurturing environment to show this work, I jumped at the chance. My pickanninies usually can only be viewed in the collectors homes. But this time you don’t have to be a rockstar or a rapper to see them. This is one of the few times that the general public will have access to see this body of work. They will be available for purchase as well.

Until Then,

BANJO PRACTICE: No More Auction Block & Poor Boy

I know y’all have been wondering what is up with me, what happened to the art, what’s up with the music talk and all that. The banjo has entered my life, and took up residence. Here’s my progress at a year and half. I tape myself again at Christmas which will be my two year banjo anniversary.

Here’s the link to view No More Auction Block: No More Auction Block
Heres the link to view PoorBoy: Poor Boy

I’ll post the last when it finishes uploading. I hope y’all enjoy. 🙂
