Lately I have been losing myself more and more into drawing. I put a lot of thought into them and I often create lives and stories about them. Yesterday It was snowing, so I took advantage of the weather and picked up a pen, and found an old sheet of paper. I turned up the music and I lost myself. This is where my imagination took me.
and here is a short video i made during the process:
thank you all for looking!

I have had the same wallet for many years (maybe about 10 or more). I really loved my wallet and didn’t have a need to get a fancy wallet or even a new one.I just really like my nintendo wallet! I think it matches my personality.
The wallet is falling a part,The change zipper is broken, The plastic window that holds my I.D. is destroyed, and there is obvious wear and tear. My friends and family used to tell me “You need a new wallet” or “I am going to get you a new wallet”. NO! i don’t need one! So after some thinking, I decided to finally replace my old faithful wallet and make my own.
My project? Nintendo controller wallet. This is not the first time I’ve made something out of a controller. Before I bought this wallet, I made a belt using a nintendo controller (apprx 12 years ago or more)
below is a more recent picture of me posing with my belt
So late at night, I grabbed my spare controller (no longer functioning)
I took it apart, and gutted it to make room.
I covered the inside and also made slots for my bills and cards. I also made a custom velcro strap (velcro+elastic band from the fabric store) for ease of open/closing my wallet.
I also attached hinges on the bottom so that it can open smooth and easily.
This has been another weekend for the books. Last weekend I performed at a benefit fundraiser hosted by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-blake. Even had a pretty epic dance cypher with her. This weekend definitely provided some great memories. My good friend Bounme had invited me to see The Steve Aoki concert at Merriwether post pavilion. We were able to get a meet and greet with him. When I saw Steve, I approached him like a friend. We had a nice conversation to which my bboying was brought up. He was very interested in what I do, and he had asked me and Bounme to sit back and wait for him so that way we could talk about dancing on stage. We had VIP passes and also All access to get back stage! Truly an amazing experience!
I started with ball point pen, and then I shaded it with a dull marker, and used a sharpie for everything else. http://instagram.com/atomicgoofball
