SS.Vol.2 Sew Seoulful-East Coast Release....and uhm, my First Solo Show

This was the opening for my 3rd Zine SS Vol. 2 (Sew Seoulful). The term "sew" refers to joining fabric, or in this case (art/ideas) together. Seoul, refers to the birthplace of my father "Seoul" Korea, and "Seoulful" refers to a mixtape i used to make back in the day with alot of soulful samples from several genres of music. Energy never dissappears, it just changes form.......
SS is a series of zines I started in 2007 and one which i plan to do until I get tired of it. thanks to all those who came thru and supported. It was truly a very humbling experience and and an honor to share my art w/ you. If you have any fotos from that night, please hit me up...

Cambodia, Korea, Bboying, and inspiration everywhere.....

Peep game, so for you artists ...if I can offer one word of advice that keeps me gng besides rocking with a crew of artistic maniacs...look for other artists who are dope.I guarantee it will help you stop procrastinating and put the pedal to the metal.Case in point. I was somehow lead to two dope visual artists :
these two artists are hella raw, take notes.

annnnnd I stumbled across Andrew's blog where the homie posted up two videos related to the lost art of bboying.Not only that, the seoul in me jumped when i saw a video with a battle btwn Bboys in Korea vs some japanese cats.Ridic.peep:

and: KK from Cambodia descent, raised in Long Beach-gets deported, brings -BBoying out thurr yawl.

Inspiration is everywhere......
Who said this:
"I bet you niggas lookin like...damn she fine.
But on the hold sucka duck,
ol' girl can rhyme...
and im not up in the party tryna sex shit up,
i dumb dumb it enuf
so listen close baby doll
cuz i keep a few tricks tucked under my cuff
so if u want a lil' sumn, step up"
-?(Los Angeles)

"life is like a dice game,
one roll could land you in jail
or cuttin cake
blowin kisses in the rice rain
.......they say candyman candyman
spit me a dream
blow a chunk of the levees out
and spit me a stream
knock a mans house down
and build a casine
a 2 thousand dollar goverment check from feem"
-?(New Orleans)
