Weapon of Choice – 12 May 2009

It had been far too long since the last time I made it down to Bristol’s live graffiti night Weapon of Choice, so last night I actually managed to get off my backside and represent. King Audel & Dirty30 were the resident live painters for the night, with music provided by – amongst others – Asaviour & DJ IQ and light hearted Bristol hip-hop crew Hairy Parents. If you haven’t heard of the latter then you need to go hit that link and check them out now – clearly UK rap needs more West Country accents to survive.

Sadly I had to leave before midnight due to old-sodness, so I didn’t see the final result of the painting, but I did manage to grab a few shots of the work in progress – see below, plus lots more on my Facebook album. Props again to the WoC for hosting a great night, and a reminder that if you’re ever in the area and have even a passing interest in graf or hip hop you owe yourself to get down there and check it out.

  1. Just stumbled across your blog today. Gr8 to see another person so infused about their graf/hiphop/dnb and anime lol. V. similar interests. Will try to make it to the next night, studying at Briz atm as a student 😛

  2. Nice one Anko – always good to connect with people in Bris on the same wavelength; hit me up on Facebook or Twitter if you’re on either. The next WOC is 9th June – hopefully see you down there 😉

  3. Great work! I have always had a fascination of anime and its dramatic, and often breathtaking, visual language.I will follow your journey. Happy trails!
