Earth Problems - @Upnorthfest

Last weekend (28th-29th of septmber 2013) we were kindly invited to take part in this years ‘Upnorthfest’ in Sunderland, in the north of the UK.

Upnorthfest is the Norths version of Upfest which usually takes part in Bristol every summer. The Upnorthfest is a festival of celebrating street and graffiti art which takes part in Southport and Sunderland. The festival organised by the super sound Frank Styles of Sunderland brought together some great artists from around the UK, painting on 16walls, 7 buildings, and 21 boards over 3 days.

Some of the dope artists included: Kelzo, Irony, Inch, Sune, Razeone, Eyes, Toupe, T rex, Eyes, Id-iom, The super fun Girls on top crew and many more including myself.

I rolled up to the festival on Saturday morning after finding a rather hungover familiar face(Daddy Sune) on the newcastle metro system. We caught up on graffiti, drunken antics, tales and creative projects on our way to Sunderland…Sune was a big inspiration growing up in the city of Leeds, he’s probably one of the greatest writers in country, but still humble as ever.

After getting shown to my spot I commenced unpacking my seriously over stacked paint out of my several bags…I managed to hold onto the scaffold for the day to get the top elements of my ‘Earth Problems’ piece painted up.

Throughout the day I met many new people, writers, excited passers by, some old friends and a quite a few ‘Eject’/ep crew fans, some of which had already purchased a few of our dope tees!! Big ups to everyone who we chilled with and chatted to while painting this piece…big ups Nickos, Razeone, Frank Stlyes, Pepsie, Vigo, Burn, and many more!!

After the first day of painting it was time to load up on tasty buds and drinks with the writers at the jam. Quality night out chilling with Sune, The girls on top, Irony and a few other cats who did’nt get thrown out 😉

Big ups and one love to everyone at the jam…the random sun and everyone who took part. And thanks to Bretski at Artofficial for the extra paint 😉

One love – Eject!!

Every Day is Play. 'A celebration of the video game' - Fully Funded!

About a month ago I posted on here and our social medias about a kickstarter project to fund a book about about gaming. The book is called: Every Day is Play. ‘A celebration of the video game’ and is as it says on the tin a celebration of all things video games and gaming.

The project created by Matt & Emma two designers/artworkers/consultants and nintendo addicts!!! The book features allsorts of cool interesting contents such as interviews, design, illustration from video game/design goliath’s such as Konami, Build, Buro destruct, The Designers Republic, and many more.

This kickstarter project reached over £10,000 more than expected through various bloggers, gamers, and lots of hard graft and hustle from Matt & Emma. Big ups to Matt and Emma for reaching the goal and to everybody who contributed a few sheckles to the cause.

I’m really looking forward to getting my copy when its available !! So power up that 64bit, eat a mushroom, collect ya self a gold coin, grab a lil’ flag and give your buddy a hardooken high five!!

Stick em' up punk

This weekend our Liverpool based buddy ‘Beta’ of TDA klan called us up to see if I wanted some of the Yorkshire massive down to Liverpool…they all flopped apart from myself and fellow can technician Ziel…So we caught a early morning lift to Liverpool via the National depressed.

It’s always good to go back to my old stomping/stamping grounds to see the scouseside writers!! Many of the younger wave of writers were influenced by some of my demon buddies throughout their cool city…and seeing these guys now painting and painting burners is really good to see. Top chaps the lot of em!!

Ziel and I then met up with Beta and Cruel and commenced to prime our wall in the nasty British rain…Several soaked sketchbooks later, a few knocked over Heinekens and soggy rizlas later we persevered through the rain and painted a nice wall.

Big ups to Beta, Cruel, Ziel, Fish, Nate, Sy, and any others who I have forgot. Good day, now to dry off the sketchbook!

KAWS VMA

Just found out KAWS redesigned the MTV VMA’s moonman and graphics. I’m a lil slow on the mark on things like the VMA’s…We stopped watching years ago when weak videos were winning over the likes of Video Legends such as ‘Spike Jonze’ .

Saying that though it’s dope to see Kaws stealing the show with his dope character. We’ve been big fans of Kaws ever since we first his works and It’s crazy to see KAWS redesigning the VMA moonman, that’s big things for the graffiti community.

Big ups Kaws keep smashing the world!!

Behind The scenes : Ejecto's Homepage/Promo shots

On a pretty warm day in Leeds, majorkuts(Ejecto’s photographer) and I filled up his car with cereal boxes, EjectPacksâ„¢, badges, spraycans, Chocolate milkshakes and Ejecto’s. These props were to form the homepage of my website and also act as promo shots, suited up like a ‘Demon’!!

Sleep levels were low with the run up to the launch, a stumbley, growly start to the day and me and majorkuts reached the home of ‘PRYS’, a local mc(and top chap!!) from the crazy lil bunch of Leeds hiphop group ‘The Defenders Of Style’! Apparently he had the dopest kitchen in town…ideally suited for our shoot!

I quickly got to work ‘Ejectorizing’ Prys’ kitchen…within a few mins we were good to start getting to work…Big up to ‘PRYS’ for letting us abuse his kitchen and leave Ejecto’s and milk everywhere!

Throughout the day we had support and passers by from some of Leeds phattest cats, big up to : Chiefwigs, Sonar Cousin, @Hollymix, Joe Snow and PRYS’s lil buddy for popping by!! Epeace Ejecto’s!
