All City Black Book Show
12oz was in attendance at the All City Blackbook Show this past Saturday at the legendary 5 Pointz. Writers throughout the city joined up and took part in one of graff’s oldest traditions: blackbook trading. Breaking out their markers, the writers applied their skills on paper.
After taking in the vibrant scenery of the murals that covered the walls, a barbeque and break dance session were soon under way. And while the walls behind them were being painted by legends such as Blade and Gear, judges went around trying to determine the best blackbook there. The event turned out to be great and some pretty sick productions were done that you can see for yourself next time you’re riding the 7 line to Flushing.
