Now that I am back in Ecuador I can get started on a few other projects + take a nice break from the busy bee mode of the NY grind. I was invited last weekend for the magazine launch of Ecuador’s first official graffiti/street art magazine VISCERARTE¬†”revista de arte urbano” -¬†¬†The folks who run the magazine have been clicking away at many of the graffiti events in Quito I’ve attended. I met them earlier this year when Abusa Crew was in town. They are a lovely couple Alex, and Eli who’s love for the urban artform in their city has turned into a print project all their own. I want to give a special thanks to them for taking on the publishing world here in Quito to help document the movement through words, and photography. There’s some nice things going down in this city it’s nice to see it unfold in person. Here’s some flicks of the magazine launch at El Centro Contemporaneo in Quito. Participating artists like La Ratona, Jason, Bonice, Enaone and more…

Whoa…did I make it on the latin network? Univision interview airing on Thursday morning nationwide over 100+ cities. ( “Despierta America” 7am-10am Channel 41) Many of us grew up with this channel because our abuelas, mamis, and tias watched their novelas, our abuelitos, papis, and tios caught the futbol. Occasionally we all sat around to watch that silly man Don Francisco on Sabado Gigante too. My family has come a long way. This one is for you Papito lindo!

Cardhacks Drops The Art Hustle artist trading cards July 1st 2010! Sneeky Peek…
The Art Hustle is a set of art and artist-based trading cards produced by The Cardhacks and manufactured in the USA by SideKick Media. The set is very much a collaborative effort with artists, and exhibits an international group working in multiple disciplines, including street art, toy art, kaiju, sketch, illustration, painting, aerosol art, poster art, collage, digital art, sculpture, photography and more.
What makes The Art Hustle so cool is that it gives you a completely new experience as a collector; the set is a tangible exhibition of talent that you can experience and learn about. You also have a chance to get an original piece of art! Plus, being inspired by trading cards produced in the 1960‚Äôs, 70‚Äôs & 80‚Äôs, the set offers up some vintage-inspired flavor including chipboard card stock and the much-loved wax paper wrapper.
Price: $126.00/Box ( Boxes are limited! ) – quick facts below:
