alisa dear - thanks soooo much for your wonderful work of capturing the graf of #7. I took the liberty of downloading 2 photos (#23 + 24) from the Lincoln Park collection to share w/ my Mom + Dad... I hope you don't mind.

She grew up on Soto Street and also in the Lincoln Park neighborhoods - they live near me in Sonoma now, and I want her to see a little snapshot of "Our Lady" in the old neighborhood...
...pls let me know if you prefer that visitors admire and not download...

!Que tenga un gran fin de semana y 4 de Julio!
XXOOXO = mis besos

Richard

no worries baby go ahead / download anything you want/ that's why I watermark them / send them into the world and perhaps they will send back friends xxmeow

Hey I just read what kbreak had to say...and basically Life isnt fair to everyone..Sometimes kids have no outlet but gangs..For no other reason than they have no family and the gangs showed them love..I try to help kids get out of the violent lifestyle and into art..If they decide to put it on the freeway thats their decision..I was shot at almost a year ago by tagbangers..Basically taggers who THINK they are gang bangers...its not fun and i dont want to do it again..And hey kbreak yeah i dont want anyone TAGGIN my house either..but if they did I'D understand why...and yeah the stuff up on the freeways needs to stay there..buffmarks are pretty boring to look at after a while..PEACE>>>>

June 11

Spent the last few days with Firefighters, CHP and other volunteers: So much fun & the foundation raised $130,000 for burn survivors.

this cop never did slide down the pole no matter how we cajoled (big pussy)

we laughed like that for 3 days (Quest did a whole week - but I assume days without me were sad : )

I despise graffiti unless the owner of the property specifically asked for it.
I've painted out graff many many times and had to pay for the paint.
It's vandalism.
It brings out more crime and lowers the quality of life.
I've seen taggers shooting at each other before.

Ask me sometime about the guy tagging *inside* my house.

I had him arrested.

Hi kbreak

You're not alone / a lot of people dislike. Cops in Venice have achieved a bit of truce with the artists by giving them wall's to paint.

Truthfully tho', I like graf on the freeways/billboards/buildings / I like it in bad neighborhoods like Lincoln Park & Downtown & good ones like Melrose & SM.

There R gang elements to graf but not all artists are criminals. I think urban art grows from the human urge to create. I think it's the most interesting thing happening in art today...

but I'm a freak XOXOXO


CafeDebbie welcome's 2 new Debs - Jillian & Lux - shot them yesterday. They showed up early, were professional, easy to get along with, funny (thanx!) and so fotogenic - look 4 them soon.

grafitti on public/private property
without express permission isn't art.
it's some brat piss-marking the wall.

in the past year 2 (3?) workers painting
out grafitti have been shot dead in my
local neighborhood.

http://www.nograffiti.com/grafnews/12_04/graffiti
_removal_company_employe.htm

grafitti painters are NOT artists.


Hi kbreak

I disagree. I think art that provokes this kind of reaction is powerful / significant. I also luv the transient nature of it. A huge mural covering an overpass will be gone in a few days. That's why I document it.

I do agree that brats piss-mark walls; but don't toss the bambino w / the agua.

I'm going to do a 'i luv graf' on the LA River this summer. I think that concrete monstrosity benefits greatly from all the urban art.

That graf is such a flash point interests me as well. I've been thinking a lot about ying/yang and the never ending push and pull of good vs. evil.

The girl painting 'Knit' the other day at the beach =good

The boy that shot the kid for covering his tag =evil

But in my opinion, it's still art. XXOOO

i luv graf #5

Is Deb an alter ego or a partner?

I've always been a sucker for classic nudes as opposed to hard core. I didn't get a chance to read all of the fiction - but I liked the one piece I read of yours 'a man of ambition.' Pretty dark girl but excellent writing.

I look forward to seeing Marissa in her Cookie tie. I'm heading to the east coast tomorrow so I won't get my mail till Tuesday next. Talk to you then.

XOXOX p.s. count me in for a subscription when you get there.

The Story of Debbie is good, but long - I'll put it in Deb Likes to Read one of these days.

Gracias 4 the kind words, baby - hard core makes me sad. Not exactly the respone the producers are looking for - haha.

I always liked shooting nudes, tho. Erotica is sexy / fun.

Here's a peek at cookie monster. When I finally open the site, I'll give ya'll a password. I haven't done any marketing yet.

I'm only sending it to all y'all.

XOXXOX
