November is almost gone and so is 2010. Zone1 is not letting the end of the year slow him down. With a request from team member Stae2 to keep it Chunky, Zone has obliged. Here is a lil something he did with the usual scrap cans he finds laying around. Enjoy!
Check out the new issue of "Nites Out" Graff Mag. The WSTCrew has a 2 page spread. Big up to the Family. Be on the look out for Nites Out next issue with a full out interview including the entire Wild Style Technicians Crew.
Here is an incredible interview I got from the Fam. It's a radio interview of my NorthStar Family member KUFU-TNS talking some graff, politics, and some of the wonderful work he puts in his community on a daily ritual. After hearing this interview I had to share it it with you guys. I am again truly honored to be part of this great NorthStar Collective. This is an educated brother really doing work with the youth, the community and letting his perseverance, sweat, and Amazulu ways to do the talk for him. Hotep my brother! One Love and Salute!

Check in at www.wildstyletechnicians.com and see the New DYSEONE Graff Zip Hoodie & Graff Jeans. The Heavyweight zip hoodie is lined up with a multi-process including Flocking, Screen Printing, Large Embroidery and all the bells and whistles you would want. The price is incredible for this type of garment.
Also check out the matching Jeans and Tee. The Jeans have tons of graff detail and attention through out the jean. Inside, outsides..... lol. Thats what happens when you seen Style Wars as much as my generation... The back of the jeans have a full color screen print on the back pockets. The front has dripping screen print with large embroidery. Limited numbers only, so don't sleep.
Got a call through the 3-way from the mountains that Brother Kufu along with his TNS platoon were moving closer to their objective. Moving through thick brush and danger around the corner they were all on their obective in Vietnam, CA. Once the group advance to their position, the operation: "Funk Thanks Taking" was unleashed. Here is what the courageous soldiers pulled off. Brother Kufu, always killing it, with some food for the brain at the same time. Thanks P, for the flicks...

That's right. The infamous WESK-TFL came down and with that said San Diego TFL representatives STYLE1 & ZONE1 had to join in on the fun. I missed the festivities due to not having a phone. Problem solved....
Friday evening and I get a "What up Geek!" from my mello my man ZONE1 on the iChat. Before we even sent 5 messages to each other we had already made plans to go rock some long time coming Silvers. I showed up at 8am sharp at the Writers Block and Zone was just 5 minutes behind. The day looked bad and it didn't look promising at all.
Before we could even get out of the cars it started raining. Long story short it poured down for a few hrs. before we even got to make a decision to even paint. I really didn't event think we pull it off but with the positive vibrations and light Morgan Heritage gave me at 6am sipping on my coffee, something had to give. Zone wiped the walls down from the rain. with some towels he brought in anticipation. We buffed our spot like mad men and started our outlines. As usual Zone was done before I could blink and I ran out of my outline color with just a few 3-D spots to fill in. Since we did silvers I spent my majority of my time with the 3-D. Having ran out of my outline color I threw in the towel for the day. I marked the wall "Not finished, Be back" and though I be back the next day. Should of known better... We'll the next day turned out to be 2 days and by the time I returned some toys decided to practice their wack ass hand styles all over our pieces. Barely even 2 days old and the pieces were all destroyed. The theme was "Blood Fyah Warriors" so I decided to pull it off and fix my entire piece including the back ground witch I buffed with my bare hands. I never found the exact color of my outline but had something that came pretty close. The hardest thing was having to redo the 3-D spots that were messed up. What I thought was going to take me 20 minutes to finish the original few 3-D spot I left not done, turned out to be 2 hrs. of fixing up lines and 3-D. None the less I finished hit my tag and left with: "You can't stop We.." (Jamaican voice)
Just sending mad love to one of my NS Family members Cold Chris - Dynasty Rockers. He is going on a lil Workshop Europe tour. Hit him up to check in with him and see his whereabouts on the trip. Good luck my brother and have fun.
Here is another WST mission sighting. This time is the Architect - IZZE1. He was called by the good people at Writers Block to come do a quick 1,2 punch for a play production. The theme was Hip Hop and the color scheme was Gray tones. Iz quickly grabbed the cans provided and went to work. Looks real cool for a quickie gray tone. Enjoy!
That's the deal ya'll. My man ZONE got sent to the East coast for a day or two on some work related trip. Leave it to my man to work in a painting mission while on work duty. ZONE had never painted with our WST East coast representative STAE2, so I was praying he could pull it off. The thought of ZONE painting in NY and linking up with one of our family members meant a lot to the WST squad. After a long nightriding mission and tons of coffee/Redbulls he made it to the point of attack. He met with STAE and SETER who took care of him like Family does. They both pitched in and before long, ZONE had a few cans and a few hrs. to get down before he had to be back at work or miss the fight. Amazing how fast this guy paints. In the few hrs. he was there, he was able to rock two pieces before he had to disappear like the Taliban going into the hills. Here is a few flicks of the fun. Enjoy!
