Charlie doesn't surf

Tonight went to check out the Lakai: Fully Flared video premier at Lakewood Theater and I gotta say that Marc Johnson still has it going on. It took 3 parts to show how great of a skater he is. For those who still haven't seen it, the intro is pretty rad. Drop tricks, not bombs.

In an other subject, I just found out about this sweet documentary about global graffiti and street art called Bomb It. Directed and produced by Jon Reiss. Right now is being screened at different film and art festivals but you can sign up for newsletters and pre-order the dvd @

About the film:

I'm still trying to catch up on projects for school and study for finals next week. I'm thinking of going to Houston next weekend to check out B-Boy Hodown for my first time and report on the graffiti competition and perhaps compete myself, but that is still just a thought.

Other than that today is just another Monday, with bunnies

These are from Bunny; I saw these on the Flickr group album: Dallas Street Art and Graffiti.

Making the beast with two backs

That's right, besides from today just being another monday when Ron Paul starts taking money from prostitutes (gotta give it up to that guy) and my struggle with Othello, I couldn't go off before I watched this Sour Grapes video of them flavoring Dallas a bit.

"For those of you who are asking...
the paletas are out on the streets so happy hunting and don't forget to send us some pics if you happen to stumble upon one." - SOUR GRAPES


Oh yeah...sneak peak of a series of skateboards that I'm working on...

Saturday night F6 Gallery, this underground art gallery for some of the most talented underground artist from the DFW, hosted it's November show called UPPERCASE. I got there quite early and the art was amazing. This gallery brings out some of the recognized names of the art scene and puts them under one roof for you. The clever theme for this show was...of course, letters, making it possible to bring out some graffiti style into the show.

Javi Update

For the past few months I've been doing some small works on my free time. In between work and school I get to do these few pieces:

Purple Haze. This one was mainly inspired by Hendrix's music. I kept on listening to this song over and over feeling th flow of his guitar and trying to portrait that into the painting. I was also influenced by frequent arguments on how the human/nature/cosmos are somewhat connected with each other.

Colourful Foot Fetish.
I can't really say much about this one. It is so spontaneous and raw. Hahahaha. Feet.

Ms. Medula Oblongada.
A few months back, I went to a free Erikah Badu show down at the DMA and I made this sketch of her while she was preforming. I was so drawn to her way of singing and appearance that I it made me do this kind of glowing background.

Triple Threat (DFW).
A week ago The Triple Threat threw a B-Boy battle gig down at the Balck Forest Theater and I made this for the graffiti competition. Of course after not wining I took it back home, took a picture of it, then...slapped it on this blog. Ha haha. Anyways. Is just a wheat paste of Dallas's Skyline and some other designs.

(all of these for sale)

Eye Poppers

Six Letter Word, or Diogo Potes, graphic designer/illustrator comes in with a visual bomb of colors, shapes, hot babes, and diamonds. His style is very raw yet elaborated, making it seems easy to combine colors. I had a little Q&A with him:

I'm just curious about how you became an illustrator?

since very ltlle boy i was connect in some how with skateboard.
make that kind a graphics always was a dream. i think that all came from there

How long have you been doing this?

graphic design 7 years, illustration i guess 5.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

a bit of everywhere; movies, books, art, artists, magazines, internet surfing, old stuff, etc etc etc......

And...What do you see in your future? and the future of art involvement with society?

i wish i can see that...

If you haven't heard yet, started a project called Re*Cov*Er Mural Series. The whole purpose is to bring back the good street art to Deep Ellum area by doing a series of murals of different legendary artist of the DFW area. I ran into this video on their web page, and it's pretty much a recap of how the project went down.

Make sure to go down town and take a tour around these bad ass pieces.

A Piece of Mind

A lot of support from artist have come around the issue in Burme. It is important for society to come together and support these people from Burma. They've be under oppression for more than 30 years now and their issue finally made impact on our side of the world. I'm glad to see these sort of wheat pastes up that bringing more awareness.

Sucks to be you

Have you ever stared at someone, you don't know why, and this person attracts you in some mysterious way...perhaps the smile, the clothes they wear, the way they walk, or simply by their action. Well seems to me that most of us have had that reaction. I've wondered sometimes if people wold react the same way to moving art. I don't mean cartoons. Imagine the Sistine Chapel in full motion. That would be some shit to see!
It has come to my attention that a lot of artist had switch to this way of doing their art. And to me these stop motion animations are quite the story tellers. They take you to a deeper level of understanding the characters involved in the art, their function, movement, process, and perception . Blu, Wada Nanahiro, and David Ellis are just a few names out there doing this.

If you're down in Houston this weekend go check out this event. Should be rad, I mean just check out some of the sponsors! More info at

Time-Lapse Video: David Ellis

Bad ass time-lapse video of this cat David Ellis on a delivery truck [video link]. I met him last year at Virginia when he was introducing this time-lapse videos of him and his crew. For those who don't know him he's the artist who did the art on the inside of the latest Modest Mouse CD and he was also featured on Juxtapoz few months ago. Check it.

Let's see....We been away for some days now. Just catching up with stuff around life and what not. We went to the Infinity Crew Party Down at the Nine Eyes Tattoo Studio last Saturday and that shit was off the chain, thanks to the guys for some free brew and The Party for rockin' the back. I'll have some pictures from that. Hope you were there and don't need none of this pointless info or else you missed a kick ass party.

Umm...We'll probably be back Monday kickin' it strong and hopefully fill you guys up with good art and give you a scoop of our coming up project. But for now come closer to the era of limited prints that have been blowing up the last few months. Paper Monster's website got ill prints from artist like Swoon, Sam3, David Ellis n what not. So if you already got your SBs for this month...come spend some well-worth-money here.

Ears open to all you designers/illustrators/artists out there. Most of you could probably use a little more notoriety and another notch on your gun. Get your computers in gear because Implied Form has teamed up with Chixink and Pink Ghost to oversee a nice little t-shirt design contest. Fame and fortune await the winner, as well as a free t-shirt featuring your design, a $50 Pink Ghost gift certificate, 10 buttons also sporting your design, a link to your site on all three sponsor sites, and a matted print of your deisgn, all that on top of being internationally renowned. How can you pass up an opportunity like that? Well, we won't let you. You've only got until October 20th so you should probably go ahead and get started. Unless you're like us and you wait until the absolute last minute to do anything. You dirty procrastinator. For all the gory details, inspect the contest guidelines here,
