Seriously????? Cops went undercover inside the prison to get this kid to confess to the crime behind the meaning of his tattoos….. I’d like to see some graffiti exploits tatted in a crime scene chest piece. Upload those flicks. I know one of you out there has been there first. Tattoo trend for 2012.
“The tattoo shows a peanut getting gunned down by a helicopter outside a liquor store under the banner “Rivera Kills.” The detective recognized the distinctive lights on the image of the store and, the Times explains, “In gang slang, the word ‘peanut’ is used to derisively describe a rival gang member.” Garcia, whose nickname is Chopper, belongs to the gang Rivera-13. Another image shows a man (presumably Garcia) holding a Mr. Peanut-looking character in a headlock. Cops went undercover to Garcia’s jail cell after they arrested him, and shortly had a confession for the killing, which led to a conviction on first-degree murder.”

My studio-mate Pablo Medina, of Cubanica has been busy for the last couple of months. He just released two new fonts based upon his travels in Buenos Aires.
And he just launched a new website a few weeks ago, with his Spring semester students. Exquisitetype.com Uses the century-old surrealist poetry and drawing technique called Exquisite Corpse, students from his Experimental Typography class in the school of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons the New School for Design and Liliane Vanbalberghe’s Typography class at Altos de Chavón in the Dominican Republic joined forces in a collaborative and cross-culutral project appropriately called Exquisite Corpse Typography. The students from Parsons designed the left side of the letter and the students from Altos de Chavón designed the right side. The letters were then scanned and joined to create these experimental letterforms. Neither participants could see the work done by their collaborators during the creative process. This is the first time ever, that students from Parsons and from Altos collaborate concurrently across oceans
