Ok Serval , here is my sketch for you ! I tried to fit the
sketch onto A4 paper and in doing so... I feel as though the left hand side maybe a little squished in? I guess if I wasn't trying to cater for the scanner but would have preferred to kicked the bottom of the S out in a similar fashion to the L. Hope you like :)

Peace - Sirum 1


Hey guys - this exchange between myself and Bates happened whilst the book
was being created.Its nice to show some whats been done over the time
in which the blog was inactive.I figured I would come up with a fun funky sketch for the man, and I think the simplicity with in the colour choice Bates applied to this one just gives it that extra bit of character.It really didn't need anything else!

Jurne paints a Rime sketch

Rime laid out a nice simple sketch for me on the wall with a fat cap and some blue spray paint. We were going for a "stay-warm, finish-before-the-sun-sets" kind of wall, but of course, that was only wishful thinking, as it was freezing cold out and we started buffing the wall around 2pm.

I liked the overall sketch; modifying the E to match the kick of the J, and playing on the idea of a letter form belonging to the 3D of another letter.

The dot of the J turned into some kind of pop art warp hole R. The whole piece adopted a comic book feel to it. Over all I was pleased with the outcome, although I think the N could use some fill designs to spruce it up, and the little triangle of yellow in the E is confusing and takes away from the piece.
Thanks to Rime for writing my name in graffiti on the wall.

Hesoe paints Kaput sketch

Yo Kaput!
Thanks for the sketch broo!
I had to do the 3d the other way and tried to keep the fill simple so the green would come up, i really like the idea of the bottom part of the E containing the S and the O, with the simetrical H and E, i ll definetly try this structure out on some future pieces. i think i missed the proportions on the E-S-O a bit too much, hope you like it bro! i would gladly paint another of your sketches, mad funk going on!

Host18 - Cecs : Pre-Exchange Exchange

Cecs gave me this cool sheet of letters of my side name 41Shots in 2008.
I had a really good time painting the piece even though a couple of spots were tough and as simple as the O is I never paint O's that lean to the left so it felt really awkward.
I really like the bottom left sketch now that I look at it and I may give that a go sometime soon.
Thanks buddy!

Rime Paints A Version Of A Jurne Sketch

Here is one of Jurne's attempts at sketching my name for a night spot. He really didn't like the sketch he made so I tried redrawing it as you can see in my sketched version.

I ended up not using the sketch to paint a spot but instead used it to paint a production in a school yard (with Jurne, Host & Curve) during a frigid New York day. This was a really easy sketch to paint which allowed me to knock it out fast and add in a little character. Looking back on the letters, I feel I could have done more to work some areas, especially the "E"... Next time I guess?

Quick Rime Sketches By Jurne

Here are some random Rime sketches by Jurne. These were meant to eventuall be used for one or more night spots. I really like the little bboy face coming out of the "rimes" 3-D...

Ensoe paints Jurne sketch

Manage to finish up the outline jurne drew for me..Had a lot of fun with it. Went to the wall confused on what to do with it? 3d? no 3d? bright colours? white outline? and then all of a sudden it turned into something else. I see jurne's style as a very classical american style, so maybe thats where my stars and stripes theme came from..hope you like it man!
