Illustrator & Cartoonist Dav Andrew does a wicked caricature of Me while DJ'ing at Three Stories Cape Town a few months back
Dav Andrew is a very talented young Artist/Cartoonist from South Africa. I linked up with him at Three Stories Cape Town (a 5 week creative event/exhibition during the World Cup) and talked to him about different ways to get his stuff out there because he had skills. A few weeks later he hit me up to tell me he had done a Toon'/Caricature of me and put it up on one of his Portfolio sites. Here is the final version along with a site showing more of his work.... Enjoy-

While in Durban for 2 weeks doing promotion for my Book I played a number of DJ gigs. Each gig had its own crowd and seen, I got to mash up all different types of music. Killin' it at every spot, from the BowlRiders to Origin and GMT (Good Music Tuesdays) to BBB's. Cats were feelin' each set and really digging the vibes, I got some new gigs lined up for my next DBN mission in a few months.

I recently picked up a few old school camera bodies, this image was taken with a half frame 35mm camera and it is from my 1st test roll (both subjects are underpaid workers in Woodstock a stones-throw away from Cape Town, South Africa). I am digging this camera and getting to know it more and more with each roll. Look out for the stuff I shot during my 2 week RUN DBN missions, getting the film scanned to digital later today.... Enjoy-

A while back I did a feature for My Culture Mag about the 2010 Southern Ink Xposure or SIX Tattoo Convention held in Cape Town, South Africa. I wrote an article (which I think was one of the better things I had written in ruffly the whole 6 months prior) as well as sent them a batch of top class images from the different 3 rolls of film I had taken during the week of mayhem. If you are keen for a decent read or into tattoos at all, maybe even just looking for something interesting click the link below and check out the article.... enjoy-
