Emeline Street

This was a spot underneath a freeway overpass that was a great, out of the way, spot to paint. One of those places where you would just show up by yourself with a couple of beers, and outline, and some paint, and spend the afternoon with no one to bother you, except for the occasional jogger.

Below are some of the results of those afternoons.

This one in particular, I ended up finding in a Mountain Bike magazine ad. I called the number on the ad and told them I was the artist, and wanted a free t-shirt. The rep from the company RockShox let me know that they actually looking for me, because they wanted their trade show booth adorned with graffiti, much like under the bridge. I ended up getting hired for probably the biggest job I'd ever undertaken thus far. I always considered that the start of my professional career.

Yea what an amazing bridge. You would see deer sometimes. I remember eating hamburgers and fries and painting all day there.
