This was my first ever body painting gig for an event at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
I was hired to come help out by my boy Kaos, who is a pro and does this a few days a week. Him and Noz where painting with airbrushes, which is the standard. I’m more comfortable with a brush, so I went with that. The yellow is actually glow in the dark paint. The end result was pretty cool and everybody was quite impressed with my work. So maybe I’ll do more body painting in the future… The photo quality is not the greatest as the pics are from my iPhone.
I’ve been invited to paint live and DJ with some of the biggest names in Miami Street Art. Always an honor to paint next to guys who have been making a name for our city in Graffiti Art for 20+ years. I will be playing some music on the wheels of steel and painting under my pseudonym, Trails 1. I will post pics after the jam.
As part of this event I have been working on for the last 17+ years, I will be DJing at the Miami Bboy Academy for the Pro-Am Games Christmas Toy Drive.

In November of 2011, I was blessed and honored to be able to perform for Shannon Lee, Bruce’s daughter, who was hosting the event and promoting their plans to open a museum in Seattle. I was originally booked to DJ this awesome event and one of my Martial Arts students, Chris Campbell happened to show up for the Poppin’ Dance Battle. Last minute, I decided to do a completely Freestyle Jeet Kune Do. We did not practice or have anything pre-arranged.

12’x8′ Spray paint, acrylic & latex on 3 plywood boards @ Terminal Kings – Denver,Co – January 12-22, 2012
I was hired as the resident DJ for the 10 day event and was given a slot to paint. I got to DJ everyday, opened for Souls of Mischief and Z-Trip, hosted the event and got to paint and hang with world class graffiti artists. I had the time of my life! From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank; Justin & Christian from Toast & Jam, Denver University, Denver International Airport, Sam Flores, Highraff, David Choe, Lance, Joshua, Soco, City Hall, staff volunteers and the Denver Hip Hop community.

I did this live painting over 4 days, approximately 4-5 hours per day in front of thousands of people. I could have spent more time on it, but I was busy DJing, Emceeing, doing photography, cleaning up, moving furniture, etc. The promoters put me to work. lol

I just got hired as the official DJ for the Terminal Kings art show being sponsored by the University of Denver and The Denver Airport. In addition, I will be painting live daily with famous artists from around the world that have been hired to install hundreds of square feet of their Graffiti and Street Art into an exhibition that will remain in the Denver Airport for 5 years. My set will be from 2:00pm-4pm everyday and I will be playing some of the after parties and concerts as well. When I’m not on the wheels of steel, I will be painting. My art will not be going into the airport, but it will be awesome to work with such legends on any level…
I recently had the honor to DJ and perform a Mixed Martial Arts demonstration at the Bruce Lee Commemorative event on his birthday. The event was hosted by Bruce Lee’s Daughter, Shannon Lee, Aqua Boogie and Jon Boogz. It was sponsored by the Jabbawockeez and was intended to help raise funds for the Bruce Lee Foundation, which is trying to erect a Bruce Lee museum in Seattle, WA. I will be posting a video of my MMA demo shortly. I offered to donate my original illustration and Bruce Lee T-Shirt design to the foundation in support of the museum. The JKD – Jeet Kune Do Logo and the character were original drawings of mine done with a Chinese Calligraphy brush and ink on paper. The temple in the background is from a photo I took in Bangkok, Thailand and the rest was put together with my Graphic Design skills. I’m waiting to hear back if they are going to use it or not…
