In the summer of 2016, we tore through the United States at breakneck speed. From Chicago, to San Diego, and back again in just a few days, walls were sprayed, Lak cans were emptied, blackbooks were sketched in, and sleep was lost. The No Time For Fun Tour was in full effect.
With such a hectic schedule, there was no time for beers, no time for loosing passports, no time for dope Cuban sandwiches, no time for juice, no time for tamales, no time for disco beats, and certainly no time for fun.
EWOK, KEMS, MAST, and VIZIE came along for the ride. POSE, TRAV, OMENS, PERSUE, BRISK, DEOW, and ZOUEH joined us at points along the way as we bounced like a pinball through Chicago, Los Angeles, Westminster, and San Diego (plus a little ‘accidental’ side step into Tijuana). That was just the first half of the trip.
Charge it to the game.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the events. Thanks to all the peeps we met and who helped us along the way. Special mention to: Danny and the Modest crew, Joshy D and the gang at REBEL8, BOB, Brisk at Tribal, Mark and the team at Art Supply Warehouse, Jose at Writerz Blok, RD Artist Supplies, and Skofe the TJ connect. ¡salud!
Stay tuned for part two dropping soon.
