Here’s a preview of the 3rd Hornitos ad done for wearesupervision inc. and its located at Ashland, Elston, and Armitage here in the second city. Ill get some finished flicks soon… Meanwhile this one is of me in action courtesy of Pose from S.V.
I collaborated on a job with Jim Harper (never heard of him? google his name, with his middle name Clay, included. yeah, that Jim Clay Harper..) for the good fellas over at Windy City Ink, which is over on Division and Wells here in Chicago, the only tattoo shop downtown. Because of their late hours, we had to pull a couple all-nighters to get it done, and because of the shop’s close proximity to what used to be the Cabrini Green housing projects, we definately saw some interesting things at night. Hookers with diseases on their face that they never taught us about in health class and drunks seemingly ice skating down the sidewalk while Maseratis and Lamborghinis fly by makes for good small talk while catching a breather from the spray fumes swirling inside the shop. Check out WINDY CITY for some clean ink, go check out the wall tattoo we did, and while in the neighborhood, you’ll get a chance to see gentrification at its finest.

So this is the second finished Hornitos ad that i painted for wearesupervision, inc. This ad is located at the intersection of Damen and Armitage, and just like all the others, its completely done in spray paint. The Hornitos final photos were taken by Pose from Supervision and they are mega-ultra appreciated.
My long-time friend Jeff who lives in Brooklyn has a simple, portfolio website. He also has some really nice fine art, and you can check both out now, >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> here!!!
Here’s the finished Hornitos ad on Halsted that i painted for wearesupervision. One block north of Fullerton, this wall is a stone’s throw from DePaul. It was a whole bunch of fun and the people loved it too. This location was the former site of the Obama wall i did, and i thought people would have a bad reaction to a liquor ad stamping over Chicago’s very own president, but instead 100% of people that i took time to talk to respect what we do and how it works.
So, the other day after finishing up one of the Hornito’s ads, Mike from Supervision was driving the supervan talking on his phone and i was riding shotgun when i saw this priceless moment off the north 90/94 exit ramp. I told Mike to hang up the phone and start taking some flicks, which he immediately did.

This is one of five Dr Pepper murals painted for Wearesupervision inc. This is a picture of the first mural we painted for the campaign and is located at the intersection of Western Ave. and Blue Island(26th street) here in Chicago. We went on to paint the same mural five times in different locations, including the last two ads, which were done live in under six hours time with all spraypaint, at free to the public Dr Pepper Mural jams, which were held at two different YMCA locations. Pretty fun stuff, free BBQ, live crowds, good times…
