One of the results of the Carbon Festival 2012 in Australia earlier this year, is this interview between ACCLAIM Magazine and LA’s own Chaz Bojorquez, “the Godfather of Cholo style letters.” The man is a legend in the game. He was tagging in East LA before most visitors to this site were born. Full disclosure: the nice folks at ACCLAIM sometimes let me be bloggin’ over there too. I’m more than happy to take part in that website. Check it out. [Watch the video]

I’ve just interviewed the ridiculously talented CRYPTIK for Imprint Culture Lab. Check it out. The elusive artist is definitely one of the most compelling artists at work in LA, if you ask me.
