Zine Review: Graff-X #2 by the Wallnuts Crew from the ABC No Rio Zine Library
On its 10-year anniversary, 12oz presents this Wallnuts zine, archived in the ABC No Rio Zine Library. It includes photos of all the usual suspects from 2002, such as Ezo, Claw, Miss 17, Nato, Earsnot, Dsense, Semz, Meno and more. Many legends are included as well, such as Ghost RIS, JA, Cost and Revs, Sane Smith, Twist, Espo, Stay High 149, and more. Free 5 is on most of the pages either with tags, solo pieces, his signature character style, or collaborative efforts. At the end of the zine, on the email contact page, he has a huge typeset Free 5, so it’s safe to assume that he was the author of this issue.
The Wallnuts crew has been around for about twenty years with a fluctuating line up. Well known for their can control, illustration skills and huge production pieces, they currently are going strong with many new and old members alike. Membership has included: Muse, Free 5, Demer, Col, Been 3, Dos, Riot, Phyme, Soco, Oh and more.
