welcom to the nest..

so we’re back in ape town feeling rundown,tired,drunk,sober,sick with swine and feeling devine.Its a bitter sweet symphony and one of the thing that makes coming back 2 to the town you work in worth it,is meeting up with the friends that keep you on your tippy toes!reminding you that your not the only creative and that if you sleep someone els will make it happen and might even make it better!!One of those people is my hommie BAKA and his home is a nest of creativty with painted beer bottles,shoes,sketches,stickers,post ups and the newest mafura beats pumping on the speakers and his mission “paint or die”

how deep does the game get?

so we did it… two weeks in Jozi.. 2 weeks of drawing pictures, finding venue’s, spending money, fixing venue, drinking, finding money, losing patience, dancing badly, passing out, committing fraud, waking up, making friends, losing friends, all in preparation and anticipation of playing with pens - our exhibition and book thing in melville…
it went a little something like this.

Jungle Rumble–- - the Jozi’s independent fashion showcase, held at the nike gallery on 4th - one week before our exhibition.
