Summer has finally arrived in Holland so we thought it was time to do another productionwall in our hometown.
The idea was to do a wall with a wolf in sheep’s clothing character and a little piggy and call it ‘Still not loving police’ (named after the song Still Dre by Dr. Dre). We recieved some exchange sketches by Noks from Serbia and decided to paint them also on this wall.
Painting someone else’s sketch forces to put you out of your comfort zone. This can be good, you learn to understand how another writer thinks and construct his pieces. You can learn a lot from this and it helps improve your style.
Because of the relative small size of the wall we had to work very clean in order to make our pieces stand out. Therefore we used Belton cans, you can make really small details with those cans. We painted several names around our pieces. Those are people we recently painted with or did hang out with… Not that they necessarily also still not love police…
We painted in chill modus and got a little carried away with adding details and effects. Another wall done and we learned a lot from this experience… on to the next wall… Thanks to Noks for the sketches!

A while ago we we’re invited to paint on a huge truck. This truck had to be painted on a family festival somewhere in Holland. The theme of the festival was oldschool videogames.
We painted a lot of cars before but never a huge truck, so we didn’t have to think long about this oppurtunity and agreed to come over. We thought about the idea of doing something with oldschool videogames and thought Space Invaders would be a nice theme to work with. The truck had to be painted in one day, so we asked out crewmember sperm if he was down with us to do the background. This way we could easily paint this concept within one day.
After preparing the concept and selecting a wide range of cans for the background we we’re eager to paint the truck and left early. When we arrived at the festival we had to walk pretty far and then we finally arrived at the spot where we would paint the truck…. This was definately not what we expected! We we’re flabbergasted by seeing the surface where we had to paint on. It was on some cheap plastic which was mounted very loosely on a truck. We took our stuff and left in a hurry and searched for a wall in the neighnourhood where we could paint the concept on.
We knew a place nearby and painted the concept there. It still came out fresh we think, but it would look even nicer on a truck… Well sometimes things don’t go as you plan but you have to make the best out of it.

We we’re asked to paint a wall for the ‘Just Writing My Name meets series’. We did choose to paint a wall in PJ Warlock theme. This character was created by Bill Schorr and has a striking resemblance with Vaughn Bodés characters. We don’t know the story behind that but thought the overall feeling of this characters is very cool and as far as we know, no one ever painted this characters yet.

Graffiti is all about getting your name up… We started in 1985 and back then we could only dream about making big murals. We didn’t know how to do it and also didn’t have the paint to do it… So we started with small pieces. During the years we got a lot of experience and figured out how to get things done…
We thought it was about time to do an extra large style piece of our names. We did paint large pieces before, but this time we wanted to make style pieces, which are a lot harder to make on a larger scale. The total length of the pieces is approx. 4.5 m high x 45 m long. An extra handicap was that the wall wasn’t flat (see sideview pics below) and there was a canal in front of the wall, so we could not easily check the proportions of the pieces.. All in all we spent 1.5 days on the wall. We’re satisfied with the endresult…. check the total wall here… > click <
We dedicated this wall to King Robbo… Get well soon!

Sometimes we have the urge to rock some large silver pieces. It’s really fun to do and this one was also a good opportunity to get rid of some leftovers in the background… This one was just a warming up for the upcoming season… The whole wall can be found here
