All White Everything [HAZE @ KNOWN] the set-up

Last sunday I had a chance to meet one of my influences in the world of Design And in the world of graff,HAZE one.
he was setting up for his Stussy show at the Brand new knownGallery on fairfax. I don't "fan out" much (and I didn't) but this would of been the perfect time to, ha. After all this guy paved the way for cats like me going from graff to world of design, the gallery was sick, the floor was amazing! This is what a gallery should be, All white, Nothing distracting your eye from the art,Watching him set up was amazing, great day overall,

I am glad I seen these samples the other day, at the XL peep show, I have been waiting to blog about this one, Back in 08 my good friend "Joff" ( Senior designer/Art director for X-Large la) gave At Large Media the chance to do some Graphics for their spring line ( I did not know it was for spring 2010 at the time).I have always been a fan of XL,I was hyped at this oppertunity, So hyped I dropped the ball and submitted nada. haah,However A few of the at large media artists submitted designs But they were really feeling my man STEVEN CHIZEL RIVERA'S work.They Ended up choosing 3 out of the 10 submissions steven sent, Here is one of them, I would say thats pretty good for a first round, no changes , No citiques, Chizel is the one who got me into the digital domain where i reside these days,thanks chizz! .Check out his Blog/Company BETA SCANNERS. Stay tuned,my man joff has been brewing up Something fresh as well, Speak Easy!, I seen some of his samples and sketches for that., Fiyah,
