The rumors are true. Positive Creations, The Movie, has been in the works for the past year. An initiative of Dreamtime Cinema, a small production company from Arkansas, I filmed everything to do with my art and positive soul expressions in general for the laps of a year. In that time I did interviews with many awesome people including other artists like Alex Grey, Other and Andy Howell; musicians like Jah Sun, Sixtoo and Midnite; and Pro skaters like Karl Watson, Ron Allen, Bob Burnquist, Nilton Neves, Barry Walsh, etc. The film is now being edited in the states by the Dreamtime team and will be shown at several film Festivals in 2010. It will then be a dvd available for your enjoyment.

This morning I had my first radio interview, and it was really fun. Waking up early for it was difficult (especially to find that my cat had taken a dump on my bed) but I made it on time to talk with Ed and co-host in CKUT (90.3 FM) show "The Tuesday Morning After".
If youd like to hear the whole show, go to https://secure.ckut.ca//64/20090721.07.00-09.00.mp3 . If you want to skip up to my interview, go up to the first quarter of it, but it's a pretty good show all around, even when Im not talking my junk. Enjoy!

The party was pretty mellow but good vibes and the most awesome nature setting by a beautiful waterfall. I feel so healed. Tomorrow I hang my show in Ottawa. The people at Norml also have a ticket of STP for me. Should be fun!

I got to meet many of teh Visionary heads of that city, talk a bit with the Greys and joined forces with Dew (from British Columbia's "Elvism") vending Cosm merch (and our own) at the party right next to where the Greys where busting out sick paintings.
While I was there I also made a pitstop at Funktion Gallery to see their awesome art and do a freestyle on the grip-tape of Ryan from "Longboard Living". All super fun.

This spring I decided to renew the mural in my backyard. Of course my bro and graffity extraordinaire Peru had to be part of it and I also invited my new friend Omen, who obviously kills it. Unfortunetely Peru was unable to finish the backround of his section. But then another awesome artist friend of mine, Tim Bernard poped up at my spot and finished off the colaboration with some trippy lines. Im pretty stoked.

Urban Ambush is Montreal's coolest brand coming straight from the underground frontlines. I am honored to have finally done a graphic for my good friend Barry Walsh, an already legendary Pro skater who has payed more dues than most.
In this 2 board series I am accompanied by SAKE, Montreal's king of Bombs. If you are a hater (cause he's probably already tagged your own property), this is a chance to scratch out his art, while having fun ripping.
