DazeRoc-WST "D-Roc" Canvas

"D-Roc Canvas"

Here we go with another of my "Had to finish" canvases.  I originally started this when Montana paint put out the 94 brand.  I was experimenting with it and amazed at the control due to the low pressure.  The fill is done with Montana 94 and it's outlined with Marvey paint pens.  I also used Montana Poltergeist glow in the dark paint for special effects when you turn the lights off.  Canvas measures 20" x 16" and it's available for purchase.  Hit me up on FaceBook (DazeRoc) or leave me a message in the comments.  Enjoy.

Puerto Rican Schwinn Bike Club

Family first, togetherness, and a passion is what these folks bring to the table.  They have taken their passion of bikes and turned into a life long commitment.  Sharing their Puerto Rican culture along the way have kept them together thru all the years.  Family, music, food, and art.  What more can you ask for.  Big up to my man playing with the trompito on the street and the gallito session.  Brought back fond memories of my early childhood on the island.  Wepa!

Tarrus Riley & Kabaka Pyramid

Tarrus Riley & Kabaka Pyramid - Fly Di Gate

What can I say about the man Kabaka Pyramid?  The stock keeps rising.  Here's the new anthem of the year - "Fly Di Gate".  Partnered with reggae super star Taurrus Riley they knock it out of the park calling on all the Brother, Sistahs, & Family.  Wether your black, wether your red. wether you bald or a dread... wether you a Muslim, a Christian, or a Rasta Man... Remember you are African...  This song is the headliner on the new riddim "Selassie I Way" on the label "Israel Records".  Here's a couple of videos on the song and a link to the riddim mix compliments of "LionHeart Sound".  Enjoy and never delay to open up the gate...

King of the Wall 2013 - WST Style Clinic

So my mello my man ZONE1 just pulled up back in town.  Having not gotten down with my brother for over 2 years I was def excited to get it in.  In comes the "King of the Wall 2013" competition.  I opted out of the competition to let the next generation have their time to shine, so the Writerz Blok put us down for a style clinic.  With that in mind we started to plot a theme and run thru ideas for the clinic.  The Bode books were dusted off and some ideas were noted.  We finally set on some Bode lizards operating on toys at the local clinic.  This is what the prognosis said: "Just as I expected. No Heart. No Soul..."  Here are the flicks of the Get Free session.  Enjoy!
Progress shots.

"So Doc...  What's the Prognosis?"
"Just as I expected...  No Heart.  No Soul..."

P.S.  Sake-WST/IBM came in on the production after we had started, so I will do a part 2 of this production once he gets done.

The Search for the Golden Cheech Wizard - Part - 1

The Search for the Golden Cheech Wizard.

So the WST crew has this friendly battle started by the WST General,  Zone1.   The winner get's the covetted Golden Cheech Wizard Award for an entire year and get's to set up the rules for next years battle.  Izzy, being the winner of last years battle got to make up the guidelines for this years jump off.  Main rule is for the piece to say "WST".  Artist is free to add background and or characters.  Here's my first entry and "Damit!  I Want My Dam Cheech!!" 
 I went with a different color scheme using a light color (MTN-Hardcore2-Glacier Blue) for the outline instead of the usual dark contrasting color.  I used a 4 color fade, inspired from an African sunset I seen in a movie.  The fade consisted of All City - Providence Purple, Ironlak - Pose Sushi, old MTN Hardcore -  Fever Red, & MTN Hardcore2 - Soviet Red.   For the 3-D I went with some 1970 greens and used some Ironlak & MTN 94 for the fill.  I also tried something new with the glare lines although I'm not sure I like it.  Anyways, I hope you enjoy.
