I was like "Whoah!" when I came across the brilliant work of Franco Brambilla. His Invading the Vintage set is particularly awesome, taking old pleasant postcards and introducing some unexpected guests to the otherwise mundane scenery. Atomic Fist Leisure had me rolling with the giant robot fist floating in the lake .

People in Asia witnessed the longest total solar eclipse of the century today. NASA's website has some in-depth info. I saw a total solar eclipse in Mexico City in 1991. I'll take that as a sign.

I had the pleasure of visiting this dope gallery in Mexico City called Cavemen Did It First. Established in 2008, the gallery serves as a platform for promoting and supporting Mexican street art and graffiti. I'm especially digging the pieces by Yoste currently on display there.

Got the blog software to work again, now trying to see if I can bring back my old posts. Some thangs are still quirky, like the automatic Savilleization of my tag...

Eyeone is an artist and graphic designer based in Los Angeles. His work is rooted in graffiti, printmaking, photography, and punk rock. Often focusing on isolated objects and individuals, his art reflects on themes of alienation, survival, melancholy, resistance, and the myriad experiences encountered while navigating the chaos of contemporary urban environments.
Eyeone was a co-curator and featured artist in the Getty Research Institute's L.A. Liber Amicorum graffiti blackbook project, now part of their permanent rare books collection. His work has recently been included in the Pasadena Museum of California Art as part of their Street Cred exhibition and in Dreams Deferred at the Chinese American Museum in Los Angeles.
He is a member of Los Angeles graffiti crews Seeking Heaven and Second To None and publishes the highly-acclaimed journal Lost | Graffiti in the City of Angels.
