Here it is Totem. Going into this drawing I was inspired by the thorough narrative you wrote earlier to go along with the sketch you drew for me. So I tried my best here to make the letters of your name fit into some sort of scenario or context.
This piece is a performance that re-enacts a clash between two schools of graffiti style, The "funny bubbly dorky style" versus the hard edged "down rockin' b'boy style". So what I make of it is that the B'boys heard that Rime was attempting to pass off a Totem2 in an art fag fashion... So in an effort to prevent that from happening the B'boys sent in a "Donny Brasco" to infIltrate the camp. The Mole was disguised as a Jersey Joe elephant herbed to death with a orange goatee and mow hawk (top left corner). Just as the party was about to go down Donny Brasco blows his cover and moves in for the attack! He jousts though a "CLAP" ridden Vagina "O" , pierces through the right eye of the dorked out "E", exit wounds out the back into the pool of bubble gum blood and resurfaces to form the first "T" with the end of his trunk.
The Dorked out "E" died on the spot , so his under study quickly sprang into action to take his place (middle orange "E"). Brasco was wearing a wire which tipped off the B'boy camp to move in for the kill (as performed by the "M" and the "2"). The second "T" saw that some madness was going down and knew it wasn't a good day to be a dork... so in a bitch move he tries to pass himself off as a B'Boy. The B'Boys physical contact with the Dork style soon corrupts their Jay-Z aesthetic... The B-boys soon begin to take influence on that dork shit and attempt to imitate their style (as shown above: The B'Boy "M" is imitating the body posture of the fleeing Ralphy Dog). Well anyways mad shit went down and they all eventually caught a cold, stayed indoors and downloaded mad Trip Hop jams... Shit went down hill from there!
So yeah thats the background of this piece... I am curious to see what you might do with it... Have fun and rock out dunn!
Goddamn son.. that sketch is bananas.. The colors are mad rich.. I love that elephant on the left with the mohawk. the "O" is nasty.. and i mean nasty..ugh the "M" and "2" are vicious looking and look like they mean buisness took me a minute to find the middle T but I found it. The Story you told makes me believe that you should make a childrens coloring book hahahaIm going to have a fun time painting this one.. DEFINATELY diffrent for me.. but im going to put my own funk into it..
We'll see how it goes.. should be interesting.
