Hailing from Mali, Mr. Seydou Keita is a self taught photographer. Part portrait artist, part documentarian and fashion photographer. His influence is global. I always have thought of his work as the grittier Avedon. His 50's-60's portraits are the truth... start digging...

If not the the number one influence in my graffiti life, I can easily say top two. Mr. Sento TFP. Unless you were a kid growing up in the city and heavy into graff it is hard to explain the evolution of the style lettering. Around the year (and please don't quote me) of '82 Phase 2 started developing a school of abstract lettering and piecing. From this school I feel it allowed other writers to get looser with style. From this you have Sento and Ghost. But to me Sento really set it off with the abstract lettering and drawing objects in place of letters. This blew me way at the ago of 9. Since my travels over the past 2 years to Europe I also have had the chance to see the impact of Sento on a worldwide basis. Let me push bi-focals back and just say I think Sento is dope. Look him up on Amazon, he has a book out.
On a night not too long ago I was caught up way past my bedtime and I stayed up watching Fresh. Now what I forgot about Fresh is how cute the older sister was, N'Bushe Wright. Now N'Bushe was not drop dead ill but what she did do right was play the cute chick from the hood next door. Not the hoodrat. Just the cute girl when you went to school you peeped. She never really lived on your block but from time to time you would bump into her at the pizzeria or at a church dance. I mean you felt like she might actually give you a chance even if your a chubby ecuadorian kid with a comb over. And she is also in ZebraHead....hands down one of my favorite movies of all time...Ayo Nicky! Gimme a shout!

Kevin Corrigan- I've noticed this dude playing the back in movies for the last 15 years easily but also mastering the art of being an "asshole" at the same time. I don't know if it is possible to play the asshole (pause) from so many angles "asshole neighbor, asshole brother, asshole boyfriend"...point is if I had an acting career for the almost last two decades it would be epitomized by Kevin's. Respect bredren...
