Project: Pink Elephants

"Seeing pink elephants" is a euphemism for drunken hallucination, caused by alcoholic hallucinosis or delirium tremens. The first recorded use of the term is by Jack London in 1913.
We painted some live posters at the Mashville (Aug 25). We had plans for a panel, but some things don't work out. Here is Rex2's pink elephant design. Check back for AudRoc's version.

Project: Funky Fighter

So Rex2 made the trophies for Funky Fighter (b-boy event), but he wanted to make something for the out-of-town judges and DJs. So he made six of these posters (9" x 24") for them.

Funky Fighter Trophies

You already know WorkForce Rebellion is down with b-boy culture. So Rex2 was happy to create a pair of trophies for Funky Fighter. Funky Fighter is a 2 vs 2 break dance competition going down tonight at Rocketown. The inspiration comes from the 90s video game Funky Fighter, and the pose the main character strikes after knocking out a monster. The winning duo gets $800 and the trophies. We'll let you know who wins.

Nashville Skyline - Pako

Pako does some very intricate, multi-layered stencils. His architectural paintings really show the technique well. These new skylines (note The Pinnacle at Symphony Place on the right) were debuted at the July Art Crawl. The photos do not do them justice.

Project: Beastie Boys

The night before Bonnaroo started rumor went out across Nashville that the Beastie Boys were going to play a secret show. So Rex2 got busy and made 10 posters (9" x 24") to give away to fans and to the Beasties themselves. But ... the Beastie Boys didn't show up. Still there was a great energy at the venue (The Basement), and the people who got posters felt like their night was not a complete waste.

Project: Clean Drips/Scotty Poster

For the "Clean Drips" at Rocketown back in March, Rex2 created 20 posters (9"x 24") based around old Rustoleum spray paint cans. The character is called "Scotty" and was Rusto's mascot during the 60s and 70s. The plaid pattern is still used on Rusto cans. Twenty posters were made and given to people that came and asked for them.
