    Shok1 is definitely a slept on writer. At least in the states.

    What I like about him the most is his ability to adapt. His eagerness for progression. And the various styles. He has all the things that make a great writer.

    I've seen this image from him of a wall that is brick, with a hole busted in it. He saw the damage as the perfect opportunity to paint a face using the opening as the mouth and the jagged bricks as teeth. So clever I almost wet myself.

    Thanks for posting up NATO!
     
  12. Thanks

    Thanks for all your kind words.

    I am currently working on my website shok1.com. Its going to be different in a number of respects so its taking quite a while but I'm expecting it to go live at the beginning of next year.

    I have 17 years of photos and drawings saved up for it so the problem is trying to organise it all!

    For now, we have the crew site online- there will be an update soon and a lot of new graff is waiting to be put on there:

    www.sincru.com

    I also have some work on www. pictoplasma.com, an interview in Backspin magazine and I'm working on some designs for Tribal for anyone that is interested.

    ha, i was just going to say that you had been on this site a while back, and there you are.

    the 'props the hard way' piece was hugely inspirational to me when i was coming up, and definately got adapted as my personal motto.
     
  14. props the hard way

    thanks :)

    that piece was about that moment when a writer says to themself, "Why am I doing this? I must be crazy!"

    To an average member of society I guess it must seem pretty mental to be out in the middle of the night making art for everyone for free or carrying huge bags of paint around the country...
