Still working on ideas with fill/background/3d overlapping and replacing each other. Trying to find small ideas and innovations that are a reflection of myself and my background are what motivates me to keep trying new things, I find it more interesting than just replicating techniques and effects developped by others to produce a pleasing image. I added this small character painted with scraps, it reminded me of the mid90’s when big walls often had these tiny characters, Loomit, Number6 and Toast were pioneers and very influential in making that style of painting popular in central europe. It contrasted with the classic bboys from the US or other artists with more graphic approaches. I see little in this style of painting today, in spite of the great number of talented illustrators now comfortable with cans and painting on walls.

Action shot From last saturday in Milano, great times at the Amazing Day event. I was happy with the piece up to that exact moment, and then completely messed it up. All good, I mainly go to events for the people, the sharing and good energy that comes from the community. Amazing day is in a tiny village in Italy and the love and support from the community as well as the other participants in this cultural event are really uplifting and filled me up, thank you @mrwanys for the invitation, I was lucky to have two good friends come to just enjoy the weekend and do some dancing, much love @el_swannito & Vega, and to the team who understand a good meal is more important than a good piece @kkade_schwarzmaler @matmower @chasloveletters and Irons! Thanks to the multi-talented @gloriaviggianiph for the pic!
