First Piece in Five Years

Tagged with: , , , ,

I’ve been out of the old graffiti game a long while now but finally this weekend I headed over to visit my good friend Doog (AKA coLor art) and did a couple of legals in Sheffield. My sketches are okay but my execution has become very sloppy. Check it! Actually the, ‘E’ on this one… Read more »
