Tone Interview - Pan-speaks-on-interviewing

So i thought i'd drop another interview by Tone on here of the Homey Pan' writer, boxing enthusiast, ill styled out Cat. Another name you should know 4sure, as he breaks down his process - he's a Fistic Artist... you do the math.

PAN SPEAKS A LITTLE ON INTERVIEWING from TONE on Vimeo.

MAD LATE BUT THIS CAT INSPIRES ME - MEL D COLE photographer - Making NYC history as we party.

I was on this cats' website for like an hour and a half lastnight and everytime i go on, I look for heads i know, or events i've strolled thru...It's just dope to see real people do real things and I think he'll be regarded in the future in the ssame light as a Jamel Shabaaz or Martha Cooper with the photo ish*. checkout his work here:www.VillageSlum.com The actual interview was done by an equally dope cat' Tone, click the name and check out his dope work as well. I guess we make our own history (his-story) everyday.

Superman..duhn'duhn...



Without a cape,mask,incredible uniform
Illusion sits half man half unicorn,
In Sag walking directly into the burning
Flames of the future,
The number nine a towering number doing its twisted karma Sutra,
Freed by time, released from the holds of the city,
Set for a voyage, one flies to beats parallel to the heavens,
The Invisible man, you can still see when you close your eyes,
The water which gathers before a baby cries,
Standing over the city looking upon its grief,
Thor the IronMan, or Hulk with polo and Jordan 23s beneath,
Love seen below the streets in the underground,
Move Superman, move light past eyes, colors through sound,
She knows, he knows, they all do...
Your identity is only yours, the only thing you must hold onto.

Summit on The Stoop - Saturday building with the HighSchool crew

"Summit on The Stoop" is a HighSchool program that places students with working Artists and other business professionals. Today some of the kids came thru to build at my studio and talk art. It was realy fun man, drinking Hawaiian Punch "Polar Blast" and talking art and swagger. The group was also able to meet the homeys Ibrahim yaqut(Artist Republic) and the incredible Lichiban. i did a small paint demo talking about contour and proprtion, the start of a great Sat. despite the sh*tty weather. Here's a few flics, special thanks to Ashley(below w/ the dope dukey rosary on) and Sallome Hralima, the work they do is amazing w/ the future...
