Manuel Bova and I collaborated on the album art for the new Wyldlife EP on Merrifield Records. I did the drawing and he did the coloring. I think we make a pretty good team!

Another Epic Day!

I've had some time off from my job at GNC, so I've been trying to use it wisely and cross some things off my list!

"Lets do it!" says Manuel.


Started off with a stroll throught Central Park, which led us to...


The Met!


The Picasso show is simply breathtaking.


I think this is my favorite Picasso painting. My camera doesn't do it any justice.




Always love to check out this painting, makes me want to listen to some metal!

MAIDEN!


Epic!


Ringo Starr's gold snare drum! GEE WIZ!




I'm always a sucker for the Japanese and Chinese art.



One thing that I've been itchin to cross off my list is to visit Staten Island. I live in Manhattan, I've gotten down in Brooklyn, killed some time in Queens, and I've dropped by the Bronx, but of all the five boroughs I had yet to see whats good with Staten Island. My buddy Samm grew up there so it was a homecoming for him.



He always used to get a black & white cookie on the ferry when he was a kid, so when in Rome...






The Ferry ride was so beautiful, almost as beautiful as Samm is.




Before we knew it we were there! HOORAY!




Went creepin around Mr.Allen's childhood home.


Ah, yes critical decisions!


Before we knew it our time in Staten Island was cut short. For my first time on Staten Island, I gotta say... its not that cool. Oh well.

Next we headed to Brooklyn to see the killer rock n roll bands the booze, and biters.


I feel good knowing that Batman is keeping the streets of Brooklyn safe and clean.


Biters absolutely killed it. By far one of the best rock bands I've seen in a long time.



Give em a listen for yourself:


Next up was the Booze! I swear I went back in time to 1968 when I was watching these guys. They had such a great vintage look/sound.


check em:


My ears were ringing for hours after the show. If you get a chance to see either of these bands, do it, you won't be disapointed.

And so another epic day ended.
I've crossed off a few things recently, such as:
-visiting the Cloisters
-dining at the Famous Fish market in Harlem
-Seeing some good movies
-Checkin out the brooklyn botanical gardens!

I also made a trip to Purchase to screenprint some new Wyldlife shirts!




Shout out to supermodel Michelle for modeling for me!
