This weekend reminded me of an old joke that my uncle used to tell me:
"A Korean, a Fat Guy, a Mexican, and a fisherman walk into a bar.... "
I don't really remember the bulk of the joke but by the end of it, all of the guys painted on a giant wish-granting cube and the fat guy said something like, "You?, I ALWAYS vomit on days like this!"
It was hilarious.


"Left to right: The Korean, The Mexican, The Fat Guy, and the Fisherman"

But yah, this weekend was fun. In conjunction with UPPER PLAYGROUND, the good folks at YouTube invited myself, Sam Flores, David Choe, and Jeremy Fish to supply some live-painting amongst the insane circus that was the "pre-show" to the huge YOUTUBE LIVE concert in San Francisco.
As usual, i was nervous and no one else was. But luckily for me, there were about 30 Shaolin Kung Fu masters fake-punching each other to our left, a group of awesome Parkour dudes flipping off of scaffolding to our right, stilt walkers, trapeeze artists, "Professional" Guitar Hero players, and Mistah F.A.B. getting hyphy behind us, so the focus was taken off of us for the most part and I was able to chill and paint with 3 other artists who rule the school.

Throughout the day, Dave taught me how to rescue chickens, and in turn, i educated Sam on the best way to fuck a chicken (as i have been TOLD), while Jeremy was arguing with all of us that the French may have invented kissing, but they didn't invent Parkour. Jeremy isn't usually wrong, but this time....he was.

Anyway, heres some pics from us painting, and a dope timelapse video of the Cube being painted. And its kinda hard to tell from the video, but we were constrained on time to a couple of hours, and as I was painting ONE thing, David Choe managed to paint 4 entire pieces, one on top of the other, it was pretty amazing. And in all sappiness, its pretty surreal getting to paint alongside some of the best in the genre.

word to the Korean, and the fisherman, and the Mexican.



The Cube before we de-flowered it.

Samuel Flores


"Hey, asshole, the most beautiful and delicious Cinnabun is going to fall on your face in 2 seconds!"


"Holy SHIT! I LOVE YOU, CINNABUN, GIVE YOURSELF TO MY MOUTH!!!!"




David Choe is an angel. I'm not exaggerating. He's on top of Sam's piece.

My pic of Sam's was fucked so I dont have it but it was beautiful.

Somehow I don't think that's gonna happen.

Hi! Gotta say you guy's rock, and your art work is way more creative then some of the stuff I'm used to. Though your web comic had been the first taste towards that genre of art I have been trying to find more, I love how you portray things and how you use the colors is sweet! I can only dream I will be able to draw as well as you guys one day or anyone from Snafu! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing eh?^^

Your art really inspires me too look into my own mind and just draw what I feel like rather then go for pure quality, So I thank you for the insperationX3 *gives the bunny a carrot and a band aid*
Vampires may be hot and suck your blood but if your a girl like me then theres nothing like tearing things and having a tail.:3 ~Half a Lycan
