AUGUST 9, SATURDAY: heArt for Brooklyn Blockparty & Obama Fundraiser

Saturday, August 9th will be yet another incredible day of my life in Brooklyn. During the day, I will be painting at the Yume loft (925 Bergen St bw Franklin & Classon) along with my dope live artist colleagues Fly Lady Di, Lexi Bella, Rizz22, Pesu, Brian, & Concep. Check the details below about the ROCK THE BLOCK block party...it's definitely an event you will not want to miss! Then I will head to Greenpoint, to work on an Obama portrait for the fundraiser ALTEREGOBAMA. If you haven't had a chance to buy the dope Warhol Obama Ba-Rocksmith t-shirt, this is the time to get it...all the proceeds will go directly to the last campaign push. Yes we can might not be just a slogan after all...

My friends Diamond Girl & Handshake have worked really hard to put the Obama event together. Big shout out to them, as well as to the ROCK THE BLOCK crew, Mike of Yume, Al of Minority Report and Ashley of Waxpoetics for getting me involved in these cool events..thank you!
