  3. Hey everyone, my name is Sean Devine and Danny Devine @yinz n'at was my big brother. Back in the day I was a 12oz member and just wanted to be like my brother (6 years older than me). I wrote for a minute but wasnt even a small shadow of what Danny did and accomplished. It's super dope and super sad reading people's memories of him - very bittersweet. My family is very close and watching Danny's art and graffiti career was a great thing. Couldn't find someone nicer and more kind than Danny. From seeing him just bench and take flix, to he and his boys starting JYK and getting in tight with our boy Brick from Time Bomb (who is in the next room from me right now at my shop) to seeing him put on 100 art shows and make 1,000 acquantances and friends it was just straight inspiration. When we started our business Refresh PGH, a sneaker shop in Pittsburgh, he did all of our artwork. When we became a part of Daily Bread and eventually completely took over the company he did countless design and hands that we used for our core designs. When Danny did hand drawn artwork that needed to be vectored / imaged traced he turned to me. We always had each other's back and it was true brotherly love. He would always tell you I love you and give you a huge hug. He helped me run my shop and introduced me to a million people. He did the 'Smoke Mad Weed' canvas that is in the beginning of Mac Miller's 'Senior Skip Day' video. He did it all. I feel like he left pieces of himself with everyone over the years. He just loved so hard and always took the time to chop it up and talk - and actually cared about you. I was at the hospital when he passed. My sister and I gave his eulogy and I helped carry his casket with some of his closest friends. I miss him so much and I'm crying right now writing this. Thanks to everyone keeping his name, moniker, artwork and positivity alive. It's been hard. We have released a lot of his artwork and clothing designs - including the tees above in this thread. Thank you for the support and for caring. My mom and dad get sad all the time of course but I tell them a lot of people pass on and no one seems to care - with Danny, people care and still put his name up. And that means everything to us. I'm partial to his first Cres tags and pieces but Vick, VCR, Vcrock etc. are all up over the city. We had his boys do a mural on the side of our building recreating the Pittsburgh design he made. I've given out paint, mops, markers to anyone who says they'll keep his name up. I just wish I could hug Danny one more time. I haven't said this to anyone, even my wife, but as he was passing on in the hospital bed I told him that I would keep his name and artwork alive for the rest of my life and gave him one last hug. I meant it. He passed from organ failure. In my opinion it was a combination of his immunodeficiency, hard graf living, boozing over the years and the consistent exposure to spraypaint 25+ years. It just sucks man. Been hard to put it behind me because so much of my life is based on following in his footsteps and pretty much having my respect based on just having an ounce of the respect he had. I just miss him so much. We have been making products and prints of his artwork and we also worked with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to create a Retroactive art show in his honor. Shout out to all of his friends for helping it come together and honoring his name - all love. Here's the article for the art show running until June 12th: https://www.pghcitypaper.com/pittsburgh/extraordinary-exhibit-pays-tribute-to-pittsburgh-street-artist-danny-devine/Content?oid=21208223 Here is the instagram that we started and run for the Danny Devine Foundation: https://www.instagram.com/dannydevine4ever/ If anyone wants any of his art prints, has any questions or wants to know any info about the Danny Devine Foundation please feel free to hit me up on IG (@sdevine70), email doubled.contact@gmail.com or text me 4127089129. Sorry for the rambling post but I feel like I just had to get it all out and rep for my big bro. RIP Danny Devine aka Danny Yinzer aka Cres, VCR, Vick. Danny Devine Forever.

  4. I haven't been on 12oz in a long time.. Hello, I'm Mr. Maker. I talk with @glory dayssometimes on IG... Mostly about collecting skateboards and shoe hoarding. Yesterday was my 40th birthday so that's cool. Welp, that's my general discussion for now. Bye.

  9. That caught me off guard on Twitter , cause overwhelming people had no clue about the graff thing , and it was only a small section of nyctwitter and older heads on grafftwitter that new what he wrote. 70's,80's,90's, and even early 2k is looking like hazy near forgotten era's past the closer we get to 2030....that and with all the retro throwback 80s and 90s shit we got whole ass generations not knowing the 80s was actually brown and burnt orange/yellow everything and not synthwave neon. Also this is probably one of my all time favorite early 80s pictures.

  12. I just posted a rant regarding an incident at the shop today but realized I really haven’t updated and spilled the news on where things are at these days. Anyhow, today was a long brutal day and I’m typing this shit on my iPhone, so I’ll drop a photo and note that I’ll loop back soon with pictures and updates. Long story short, we’ve come a long way in a relatively short period of time. Here’s a photo of my wife standing close to center of the production side of our new shop. We’ve been working on it all year and expect to be moving into it in December. If anyone has screen printing experience, knows someone that does or is interested in stepping into a new adventure and working their way into a career in print production… Hit me up. Depending on qualification, talent and attitude, I’ll help you move out. Lots of growth opportunity while working on very cool stuff in a state of the art shop.

  14. I know a dude who was scheming with hella fraudulent credit cards - he would order shit and then flip it for cash. Bought some of these ass pussy joints - this was like 15 years ago when they just had a slab of silicon with a couple holes in it. Dude told me that when his crib got raided the cops pulled the Jenna Jameson one out from under his bed and were fucking around and fingering it. It was the one that he would fuck. This dude is a degenerate.

  27. Just got back from Santa Fe yesterday . Pretty dope town, especially if you're down with Mexican Food and art. I can't take credit for the shots, I don't really snap photos these days (or ever take my phone out of my pocket at all). Prefer to just sort of take in the view myself, no camera, so all of these shots in this post are my wife's. I might post like 3 or 4 shots I took later. Our 15 year old Dutch Sheppard came along for the trip. Needless to say his old man knowledge, and wisdom made the trip go smooth. Road Empanadas come in handy, 6 hour drive. Stayed in one of those old western Motels that prostitutes and homeless people usually stay in. Brought me back to the early 2000's in Denver. I'd quit my job to go snowboarding more, run out of money, break my lease before I got evicted, and end up crashing in one of these places for a week or two until I could hustle an upgrade out of a week to week like this, and into a proper shithole apartment. The Motel has been upgraded for art loving hipsters like myself, meaning zero upgrades as far as modern fixtures, and amenities. It does have good art, and designer furniture on the low if you've got a the discerning eye. Like I said, cool hipster shit, so the people staying there were all sort of cool amplifying any good vibes. Walked in and saw an Original Ta Matete print hanging in our kitchen. Also noticed the spot next door had a Naguchi coffee table $$$$$. Subtile hints of decadence, but just enough grit to please the hipsters and "keep it real" whatever that means. Mind blowing the level of taste, and money that went into polishing this turd considering the level of dive Motel we were in. Also weird I'd consider the turd polishing a great success. That's Santa Fe for you though. According to the locals in the bar that night, apparently Santa Fe is the 3rd largest art market in the U.S. behind NYC, and LA. Small town, didn't see anything higher than 3 or 4 stories high, but there were big art vibes all around. Anyway, the next morning we did our only planned thing, taking a tour of Georgia O'Keeffe's humble home, and studio in Abiquiu (about an hour outside of Santa Fe). Multimillionaire artist, but she lived in a very humble Adobe home. Didn't feel like superstar vibes. Was sort of like visiting one of your cooler friends houses (if it were made out of adobe). I mean it was simple, had a nice view, an awesome garden, 2 car garage, and just cool shit hanging on the walls. Not much else too see if you don't notice small details. She passed away in 1986, at age 97, nothing in the house has been changed since then. Rule of the house was that if you visited, guests could only gift something not store bought. So there were rocks like these all over people would find and gift her, and handmade art, and crafts people would bring. Pretty good house rule if you ask me. I hate people bringing me junk I'm probably going to throw away and feel all guilty about it. If you ain't got a painting or something bring me a rock from a cool hike you took somewhere and tell me about it. So I'm not posting any of her work, which I'm sure you can find because there was none there. Just going to pass along this story I picked up in there about how she was losing her center vision later in life, and only had peripheral vision. She'd still paint bangers, and painstakingly use the very edge of her vision to see what she painted. She also got into sculpting with clay. She said sculpting changed her life because now she could see with her hands. Anyway, point being, there's literally no barriers to doing what you want to, but only if you're lucky enough to have the right perspective. In her younger years she had to paint circles around all her contemporaries before they'd acknowledge her, and eventually, they all did. Pretty bad ass human. TLDR: I fucks with O'Keeffe heavy. This was her bedroom where she spent most of her nights later in life. Again, wifey shot this, and she took it just outside of O'Keeffe's bedroom window. The refection kind of shows the view she had from her bed at least during the day. So remote, and since it's a dessert every night was a full blown bright milky way outside of her window. Next stop was Downtown Santa Fe for some shopping, and good food. Too rich for our blood. Ended up looking at Navajo blankets from he early 1900's late 1800's. Pretty insane if you can invest, and own a piece of American history like this. Some were as low as $3000 but I wasn't prepared to drop that much, and they don't accept crypto there (yet). \\\ If I could have afforded to buy one, it would have been this one. Authentic Navajo circa 1910. Background/fill is insane looking like a landscape. The red crosses in the corners represent "Spiderwoman", the Navajo deity that taught them how to weave these dope blankets. Maybe next time ETH is pumps up 10X I'll cop one of these. Anyway, wifey kind of gifted me this insane knife. Spydeco (local knife maker in Colorado by where I live). Seki-City stamped blade (Japanese made steel), and a handle by Santa Fe Stoneworks made of turquoise, with a mother of pearl web pattern. She's so into food, she copped this knife for herself, just for cream cheese spreading. That's it really, only one full day to chill. I'll have to grab my own phone now to see if there's any shots on there worth posting.
