Photo: Rime's Teen Wolf-Like Transformation
Rime spent some time to show us how his latest character takes shape into a “Super Freak”. After seeing his impressive variety of characters at Art Basel last year, Jersey Joe, in “Mad Scientist” form, throws down a step-by-step “Teen Wolf'” type character transformation. What really set it off was Rime’s last minute creative flip on that automobile logo. As soon as he got on the top later and let that paint flow, all I could hear was Extra P in my head saying, “…Put it through the S950 the stretch it!” He flipped it.
You can check out more of Rime’s work on his website here, and in case you missed it check out the 50 characters he painted in Miami drawing inspiration from classic New York subway graffiti.
