In recognition of all the writers getting busy in Miami this week at Art Basel, I wanted to shine a little light on Rage, a Miami native who’s been doing his thing for a while with gusto for the hustle and originality to boot. He came by a long while back to catch a video and talk hands. Peep the video.

Back in 2010 Sure and Ader came by the studio. Ader showed off that quick and dirty Brooklyn script for us. The voice you hear half way through “art directing” him is his friend SURE R.I.P. The second video is Aders homage to his fallen friend.

Great minds think alike. Right after my last post of the new Handselecta colab with SABE, Michael White, DONDI’s brother sent me this flick of one of Dond’is boyhood balls. It is now in the collection of the Smithsonian. Thanks, Michael.

Handselecta has been publicly quiet the last few months as we wrap up final pages on our tome, FLIP THE SCRIPT: A Guidebook for Aspiring Vandals & Typographers. It will hit stores around the Holiday/New Year season.
Leading up to this monumental event, Handselecta will be releasing some colabs and other fun stuff over the next few months.
First up, an art/print/functional sheet of transfer-lettering by Manhattan native SABE, who has applied his unique style to only four baseballs (Nod to the Yanks fans for the disappointing playoffs, Congrats to the Giants fans). This lettering transfer technology was a staple for arts and design professionals for years, but is now less commonly seen. Simply press and rub to transfer your message and SABEs handstyle to (almost) any surface!
Only 50 of SABEs alphabet were ever created. One signed and numbered edition by SABE can be yours FREE-before they are even available for purchase. Just go connect to Handselecta on Facebook and “Like” us for a chance to win and hear about other new releases.

Mesh called me last night to let me know he came up on some old footie of him, Reas and Ven hitting lay-ups. Some great footie of outsides and insides, and some action of them painting in the lay up as kids, sometime in the mid 80’s (?)

Chris Yormick stopped by the studio a little while back to chat graff and catch up He gave me a dope character sketch. If you don’t know Chris’s work, chek him out. He’s been grinding it out for years, and I love the through line of his artistic sensibility but also how it has progressed.
Why a Kickstarter for the Film you ask?
I have had several distribution offers in the past few weeks. While the distribution is great, the money is not. As I’m sure you all know the stock footage and post production work on this film is not cheap.
So far I have funded the project 100% myself and will be very happy to just break even on it. To be able to make the right decision about the distribution I don’t want money to dictate it. Therefore I have decided to do a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds I had hoped for from a distributor. I can assure you this money is 100% going towards getting the film out there and nothing more.
I would very much appreciate if you post this where ever you can – and pass it on to anyone that you know that is interested in the true history of graffiti.
