“FIB”. I don’t know much about him, but he had the BQE (Brooklyn-Queens Expressway) CRUSHED in 1987-1988.  A big inspiration to me..

Yesterday the art world took a big hit. 1970’s graffiti legend IZ THE WIZ passed away from heart failure  after suffering years of kidney damage from aerosol fumes. He was 50 years old. Rest In Piece.

RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH.

RITDH

Landlords asking for proof that you make 40 times the rent just to get their apartment.. in Bed-Stuy! People are paying 50%+ of their income on rent. Not sure what the solution is, but I’m glad to see someone standing up against this shit. Not just talkin about it, but actually driving around, and spreadin the word with a megaphone. Much respect to mayoral candidate , vietnam vet, and social activist Jimmy McMillan.

pen, marker, and colored pencil on G train schedule
2009 

 

In case you dont know about the G train, here’s a few facts..

– The G is the Brooklyn–Queens Crosstown subway, running from 71st Avenue (Queens) to Smith–Ninth Streets (Brooklyn).

– It’s the only train that doesn’t enter Manhattan. Very useful sometimes, but… If you live on the G (like in Greenpoint) just a few miles from the LES or Chinatown, you gotta take THREE trains to get there. 

– The G train is notorious for taking forever. 20 minutes at night (according to the schedule), but that might soon change to 30 minutes due to the budget crisis.

 – When I asked the MTA guy for the schedule, he said “Maaaybe I can find you one back here, but I don’t know why you want one.. it’s like science-fiction”.  He didn’t know that it’s best use is for drawing paper.
