New rooms in 3-D

Been working on the 3-D model again…

I’ll be putting forth an endorsement request e mail soon. Just a request to artists, galleries, suppliers of graff materials to review the proposal and maybe give me a line or two of positive feedback to post on the blog along with their logo. Who knows, some may be interested in collaboration, investment or partnership as well.

Oh, let me mention another aspect of GP that came to mind while throwing the idea around with people recently…

Of course Graffitti Park in its mission will have personnel dedicated to community relations, in that respect, a relationship with the Graffiti Squad here in New York would most certainly be established. GP would work with the squad to bring in the street artists, but we would advocate for their sentences to be commuted to community service at GP instead of serving actual time at a correctional facility.

The benefits in this if not obvious are easy enough to detail for you; A potential artist is saved from a rehabilitation system known best for indoctrination to a life of crime than the rehabilitation it’s supposed to offer. So instead of spending time incarcerated and networking for a life of crime when released, an individual can come to Graffitti Park to serve their hours of community service. That actual rehabilitation would come from this service at GP. This individual can learn how to use their motivation for vandalism if not their raw talent alone to make an honest living and contribute to the world of street and graffiti art. And of course, GP gets labor.

Here are a couple pics of the new rooms…

Sweetheart…

Baby… I just ran you by yet another pair of ears and received the “wow, that sounds like a great idea” badge of approval, so I don’t know what to tell ya babe… maybe it’s just a matter of time?

I mean, what aren’t you my love, Graffitti Park? You are a pillar of the community, helping kids get off the streets, developing their artistic creativity, supplementing or replacing the art programs suffering in your local urban area, more area’s once you franchise- you even keep kids safe in general by giving them an after school place to hang out- you are a museum, an exhibition space, a performing arts space, a venue for concerts and corporate meetings- and you are a money maker in other ways as well- by being a cafe space and a lounge/club space- as well as a location for film and video shoots- what aren’t  you my love- what aren’t you?

I know it’s not easy to keep hope alive, but we must.

We must.

The need for you is ever present.

“Sculpting and casting is the new graffiti.” ~Huck Gee, Designer Toy Artist, Icon

Very very cool article on a very very cool guy.

The natural progression I have made in redeveloping my creative brain, dropping back into Graffiti and my interest evolving into Designer Toys and Sculpting for the production of such- all validated in that one quote.
