RICKY POWELL X TOOFLY PHOTO COLLABO

I’ve been in the studio since 7am this morning working on a bunch of new works. I enjoy deadlines. I get super focused, and motivated. SOOo I’m on board for this photo collaboration with Ricky Powell for some upcoming spreads on FRANK151. I’ve never painted photographs before so I was excited to give it a try. I had taken a few hours to build up the inspiration and once that marker hit the paper I didn’t stop. I swear making art is a sweet sweet rush! It just fills you up like love. I don’t know why I don’t paint as often? I need to have a talk with myself about this. Anyway…these came out dope!!! I’m really happy with them. I got a new little steelo going on that’s surfacing off some of my street work. Gonna see how far I run with it. Shout out to Ricky Powell for the invitation to be part of this collabo joint;)
