Another sign of life

Hey there,
Just arrived home from a little trip; I'm exhausted, ill and overbooked with personal and commercial projects so it will be better if I start working! (Nevermind, I know you don't care, I just write this to motivate myself...)    O:)
Writer stories, new T-shirt and designs from last month coming soon.... ;)
the roof is on fire
My friend and crewmate IndyOne showed me this place, a former print office that was partly destroyed last year in a fire. I don't know why, but I really enjoy such abandoned places where I can paint and interact with the ambient...

Dare tribute

Tribute to Sigi von Koeding aka Dare TWS

I draw this sketch to Getsketchy Fotolog as a tribute to one of my all-time favorite artists who passed away a month ago. Dare was one of the few, if not the first real writer whose works I have seen on the internet back in '99 when I started to paint. His pieces helped me a lot to understand this whole graffiti thing, his styles and color schemes were always inspiring for me and so are today. I never had the chance to met him personally, but looking at his pieces, canvases and drawings I had that feeling that I have allways knew him.

Graffiti in abandoned buildings

I have always enjoyed seeing graffiti in abandoned buildings, factories and similar places where no one can complain that it is vandalism what graffiti artists do. These are hidden treasures for writers, since a regular Joe would never come here to disturb you while you paint, there is almost no chance that you can get in trouble with law and chances are great that your piece will last longer than usually on the streets: no fading, buffing, crossing or painting over.
I was very excited when Enza51 mentioned me this place in our city that's out of sight and maybe we could get inside to paint. So, we packed up our tools and visited this building. It was way better than we expected: 3 floors, a lot of little rooms, natural light and different types of walls. Unfortunately we didn't have time to stay too long, so we quickly painted some freestyle letters. However, you could expect more stuff soon from this little private playground of ours! ;)
