Lil’ video from KMNDZ & Ekundayo…

Above is a great video documenting the mural that KMNDZ and Ekundayo rocked out for the ‘Movers & Shakers’ show that took place earlier this year at POVevolving in Chinatown. Shot by Job Alonso, the video came out just great.

Look for much more from both of these guys in the year ahead and if you are down in San Diego this weekend for ComiCon, keep your eyes peeled.
