So, another Weapon of Choice tonight down at Mr Wolf’s, and fully reckon it was the best yet. Everyone was there, loads of live acts and MC’s alongside the usual hip hop playing, really felt like the graf and the music came together properly, just as it should be in Bristol, awesome.
Here’s some snaps for those as couldn’t make it…
As ever, the blank piece at the start of the night
After a bit of discussion, Cheo’s first up, whilst Lokey gets ready
Cheo starts rocking out this big head
and continues whilst Lokey gets started
Lokey’s work is more the stylised piece tonight
All starts taking shape
Few more stokes and the head takes on a personality
Hadn’t seen this before, Cheo slaps a little adapter on the paint pen to turn it into an airbrush
Cheo then heads across to the other side to draw another dood
Can really see it start coming together now
Working across the space, Lokey takes his work higher
Then starts bolding up those lines, really careful precision here that was cool to watch
Meanwhile the MC’s have started, this guy was really, really good, and brought his own crowd of admiring ladies down the front
Both get back to it
Cheo starts painting in the spaces with fat paint
Loved this, Cheo built in some props to another artist in the crowd tonight…
… a little owl, recognise it?
More paint pen airbrush action from Cheo
Doesn’t look like it’s heading towards the end, but it was getting late, and things were quieting down
So here’s the final shot, taken late, 1am or so, and think the piece had some way to go, but sad to report dear reader, i had to be off.
Awesome night though, just what these things should be.
