What is an Aerosol Art Battle?
A theme is given the day of the event. Then artists are given an equal amount of time to complete their art on space provided. Example, canvas, Crescent Graffiti, Paper, wood. A qualified panel of judges base the art on different criteria, lettering, concept, color, composition, originality and technique.

Black Book Battle
Open to everyone.. Bring your own Markers
Register at Noon or anytime before event at Colorest during business hours.

Crescent will provide all on-time attendees with Black Book. Colorest will be providing some art materials, although contestants are urged to bring materials such as: colored pencils, markers, paint markers etc. to compete in battle. Sharing could take away valuable time! Registration is limited!

Rules:
Registrants will be given a topic to use for inspiration, they will be allowed (?) minutes to complete this piece. Then Judges will pick winner based on same criteria for Aerosol Event. If you have never competed and wants some tips take our workshop from 12-2 on Saturday 11/12 with Leon Rainbow (Judge) for tips and tricks!

What is a Black Book Battle?
Similar to the aerosol event but, instead of painting on large surfaces you draw, paint and design all on paper. Black books are a place
for artists to put down ideas, Crescent® Graffiti Paper™ is designed specifically for spray paints, acrylics and won’t dry out markers. Great place for artists to sketch or experiment anywhere inspiration strikes.

 

Paint For The Cure

It was my pleasure to work with Mrs. G’s and the Susan G. Koman Foundation. Myself and 5 selected students painted fridges to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness.

Freestyle Fridays Graffiti Paper Edition

Last Weekend I participated in the Estria Battle NYC, in Brooklyn. At the Battle we all got this Graffiti Paper from Cresent Paper. They also used it for the James Top Blackbook Competition. I met the rep and she was very cool. I have worked with many papers and I was a bit skeptical about using spray paint and markers on it. I also use water color so lets throw that in. When I cracked the paper I noticed it was very smooth. I did two test pieces the results are:

Watercolor and Ink Pens

(little bit of wrinkling normal with water color)

Added Some Spray Paint With Scrap Paint
