A while back I received some really cool sketches of my name by New York’s HAZE.
Hyped on the classic flow, I made it a point to paint the Haze’s Rime sketch while out in NYC…
Being that it was done in an alley right under the Manhattan bridge, I felt the style fit well with the environment…

Hesao x Jurnes

Since one of Jurnes homies is visiting i thought it would be a good oportunity to rock one of the sketches he did for me a while ago. It looks like a simple style but i had to draw it couple times before i could feel ok with it, hope you like it bro!

This fresh Bates outline was painted during a recent urban exploration trip. It was meant to be painted a few months back but was ixnayed at the yard.... I reached into my bag to grab some supplies and found the sketch again and thought it was a good time to rock it.
I've been painting enough lately to start feeling a little repetitive, so it was perfect timing.
I tried to give it a slight Stae2 twist, but in the end  feel that I lost some of the attitude and swag that made the sketch so fresh...but I guess that's what this process is all about

Peace and respect to the Dutchmaster

Jurne/Bates Exchange

BATES hooked me up with a nice outline in Poland during our show.
I took my try at making the piece accurate to the sketch, up and down on the ladder trying to get the proportions right.
I have always dug how BATES has a mix of classic graffiti styles, with the odd spike or sharp extension in his letters, and was hyped to see how he mixed these ideas with my name.
The subtle sine curves of many of the lines caught my attention through the sketching process.
I change the E a bit, digging the big throwoff at the bottom. I matched up on the colors of the HOPS and OUCH pieces that were already done below me so as to not stick out like a sore thumb:

Rime Paints A Vizie Sketch

Last year in Detroit, VIZIE drew an outline for me in a sketch pad. While in San Francisco I came across the right opportunity to put it to use. There are a few revisions added in the painted version, mainly in the weight of the “M”.

Name Swap: Jurne by Sueme


Painted this in Oakland while you were away.
I actually did a really rough sketch of your name a while ago, but I dont think it ever got finished, it may have been on a napkin or something. Now I cant seem to find it! but I painted this piece from my memory of the sketch. anyway hope you like it.
