The following pictures & stories were copied from an issue of "Reader's Digest".

All characters mentioned are, of course, fictional, comic book superheroes & heroines.

Set design: Industrial Blockbuster-Light & Magic.

This was a well planned, but ill-fated mission. We pulled it off, but basically everything went wrong along the way. The connection never buzzed us in, so we had to wait for someone to enter the front door & we kinda just pushed our way in carrying all this shit.OK, so we take the elevator up to the 7th floor, but still gotta get up to the roof, which is locked.The fuckin' people who lived in these lofts should work for Homeland Security or some shit. A couple of guys started hassling us right away but I forget what bs we laid on them. (After we finished painting, the same guys came back, real pissed off & tried to start a fist fight with me & DONA.)

So, buckets ready, rollers ready...of course. it had to start raining, fuckin' hell...DONA'S taller than me & we did ours together, so she held my ankles while I hung over the edge with the extended roller pole. REVS was doin' his own thing on the side with "primo location" that could be seen from Manhattan across the East River. He wound up painting "crasy" instead of "crazy". Working upside down in the rain at night.

It was funny anyways cause they couldn't buff the "VS" under the RE. To take flicks, I literally stopped my truck on the Willy B bridge; cars, trucks, drivers cursing us swerving around. Good thing we flicked it, cause it got buffed later that day. I bet that "VS" is still there too.

This was def "THE" spot to hit on Houston...I believe it made the papers, people were up in arms. "Oh no, not OUR DKNY city mural, heavens to Betsy, these vandals must be stopped". PEAK & DONA!!! Every member of VIC were the nicest, most talented fuckin' people you could ever work with. The men treated all us women as equals in every way. With respect.

Damn, PG was a sweetheart, showin' me the ropes the 1st time we met.

Nobody really bothers you in Chinatown. Since we always first cover the spots solid, we just say we're "eradicating" the hideous graffiti. Mark off even spaces. Outline the letters. Bam! Gone. Haha. Yeah.
