Daily Sketch #2 (iPad Pro)
Well if you didn’t see the commitment post today for 2019 - I”ve committed to make a sketch a week so I can 1. Nail this iPad Pro game down and 2. Bring better art pieces to the community. It’s been a while since the TazAlGhu; shop has gotten some new pieces so in 2019 I’m dedicated to bring the head. The first item that will be out will be the Dead Man Logan Tees - not yet live but here’s a sneak peak of the artwork ...
Be surre to swoop the Old Man Logan tees before they sell out ... Just in-case you missed the last TazAlghul drop that’s also right below ... don’t worry apparently everyone else missed it too because we only sold 12 ... My Bad ... kind of tucked it away in the web abysss but whatevs ... sorry bout it ... Cheers to Dead Man Logan!
Streetart Spotlight: Buffmonster
Today's street art spotlight goes to New York Street artist Buffmonster. All of my street art spotlights go to artists who inspire me to take my creative craft to the next level. Street artists in general are such an amazing breed of artists due to the extreme creativity working on real world structures and the risks they take as they grow into a larger entity or brand.
In my time in LA I was lucky enough to actually see some Buffmonster pieces in person. This was actually the first time I had learned of the unreal artist as I skateboarded through the streets of DTLA cruising home from school. From that point on I wal always amazed at all of the pieces i found.
The picture above is the theme i remember it being - tons of strawberry scoops per say melting all over a wall. I'm recalling an even from 2011 so it's quite fuzzy but I will forever remember the general creative that was painted.
I've been to New York many times and have always wanted to see one of his pieces out in the wild there. He's been at it for over 15 years and worked with many well known artists like Banksy, and is also seen in his oscar nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.
He now releases a large amount of limited-edition collectibles, vinyl figures and other types of toys under the name Stay Melty. Makes sense, right?
It's good to see that he's still extremely active in all social channels and is always bringing new art to the table. If you haven't checked him out before it's an absolute must. Click the button below to go to his website and dive deeper into this unreal street artists. Quite the inspiration.
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Space invader
Today's spotlight goes to Space Invader!
The French Street Artist models his artwork off of 8-bit video games as seen above in the photo I shot while in New York on my pre-bachelor party. This bad boy was in the meat-packing district right outside the Standard beer gardens. Couldn't believe my eyes when I finally was able to see a piece in person. His pieces are made from ceramic tiles and from what I've heard used to be created from bits of a rubiks cube. If anybody knows if thats true or false please let me know because I thought that was quite legendary. See below for a few of my favorite pieces that he has done that I found out in the wild web.
