HELP Lain Lee 3 Expand!!

A little over a week ago i had the pleasure of collaborating with a few artists on a project through Instagram. Lain Lee 3 was the leader of the pack and led the project full force. The talent showcased in the project was superb, but it would have never happened if it wasn't for the tireless efforts of Mr. Lain and his willingness to push all of us to hustle. This same hustle and dedication and not to mention insane skills and talent are what has made his design business work.

Well now Lain needs our support... he is in the process of expanding his business. His client list is expanding and so is his need for equipment and personnel.

Lain has setup a contribution campaign filled with mad perks and goodies for contributors. I really admire this guys work and want you my readers to know that you will be getting something dope in return for your contribution.

Follow this link "LAIN LEE 3 DESIGN CAMPAIGN" to read in detail about his campaign and to find out how you can help Lain reach his $10,000 Dollar goal.

.. and stay tuned for more collaboration projects under the "IAC"(Instagram Artist Collective)

Check out some of Lain's work below:

"Grown Ass Doodlers" an Instagram Artist Collaboration

So to make a long story short, I met these talented artists through Instagram and one of them invited myself and two other artists to collaborate on a piece with the theme "GROWN ASS DOODLERS"

Friks84 and myself worked on the typography. Then we all had the task to make a self portrait of ourselves in each of our own drawing styles. The result...... well i think its pretty dope!!

Below are the images of the final piece with my contribution and details of the other artists work.
Hope you all enjoy.

Here is my initial sketch.

This is my final contribution before the piece all came together

Here are details shots of the final piece

Be sure to check out @edgarzilla, @friks84, @lainlee3 all on instagram.

SenTwo fresh from "Da Bakery"

SenTwo and I met in 2005 while i was working at a local Graffiti/Urban apparel store in Puerto Rico (NYCA787). His words still remain fresh in my mind "draw everyday".

3 years past and in 2008 we happened to run into each other on a plain back from Spain where he was teaching graffiti to kids. There we spoke about graffiti and about his passion for the culture, how he grew up in it and how graffiti has shaped his life and led his travels around the world. He stressed the importance of remaining humble.  I admired him for how many doors he has opened for young up and coming artists who did not have the same opportunities.

For those of you who do not know who SenTwo is.... he makes up part of the famous NYC graffiti crew Tats Crew and has been painting his name around the world since 1986. His beginnings as a graffiti writer started on the island of his and my home land, Puerto Rico. Check out the interview Bombing Science did on him.

Today SenTwo runs a successful clothing line and a Graffiti Shop and Gallery in the Bronx called "Da Bakery"

I just picked up two of his shirts and im really feeling them. Below are some pics. Don't sleep on these and get yourself a piece of this world traveled graffiti writers merch.
