Dave The Chimp's Lucky Dip / London

"Dave the Chimp's (un)LUCKY(art)DIP stall. In exchange for fruit and sugary snacks people get to dip their arms in my velvet sack and extract a gift. There's little paintings, packs of prints, zines, DVDs, even some "street art" toys! So drop by, get drunk, and watch the first of the seasons disappointed gift receivers put on a brave face and fake smile!" (Chimp)
On Thursday night, 6 til 9pm, it'll be the closing party of the "OPEN STUDIO" exhibition on Kingsland Road, London. Check it out!

My analogue iPhone

An amazing year is just to come to an end. Time to buy a new analogue handheld for my brain backup. It has even better features than the overrated iPhone: sure you can write down all your telephone numbers from old and new friends, but this pocket palm has more space for stickers, an original Blu double page and an information-self-destruction-super-pencil. Rather spend your money on this one on christmas!

RobotsWillKill X Förtress / NYC

Met those nice people Chris and Col from RobotsWillKill in New York. We went to Staten Island to do a quick wall together. Thanx and cheers to them for making it happen to paint in the mother city of graffiti! I will definitely come back next year.

We had a good party there. First time i also met legendary SEEN at the party. I was excited like a kid! Had a short chat with him about our upcoming Teddy Troop project :-) Keep your eyes open for that!

Galo X LondonPolice X Förtress / NYC

A friend invited us to New York to paint this big canvas set for him. Again it was a good time hanging with my friends Galo and TheLondonPolice. The artwork turned out very nice. It was my first trip to New York and the city is really amazing. But when it is about partying Hamburg kicks more ass!
