ELBOW-TOE interviewed by the BBC…

ELBOW-TOE just checked in with some amazing news:
“As an avid listener of NPR and the BBC World Service I am beyond honored to have been chosen as a subject for a documentary on street art in New York (that will air on the BBC). A wonderful reporter spent the better part of a week hanging out with me discussing art and life.”

The BBC, Juxtapoz.com, FecalFace.com, JetSetGraffiti, My Love For You… coverage is coming from all corners… and much more to come, that’s for sure, including a feature in an upcoming issue of Juxtapoz.
“We couldn’t be happier Elbow-Toe is getting his due props, as well as the entire genre of contemporary street and gallery artwork that this talented fellow embodies.” – Juxtapoz

ARMSROCK featured in the new Juxtapoz…

ARMSROCK is featured in the new issue of Juxtapoz (Sam Flores on cover / see below) that hits stands next week. An in-depth 14-page interview can be found inside and offers an amazing look inside the psyche of a very special person. The new issue also includes a show preview of ‘Mostly Memory’ in the ‘Events’ section along with an image from ELBOW-TOE. Nice.

Be sure to pick up your copy and get acquainted with ARMSROCK. Watch for a feature with ELBOW-TOE in a future issue as well… more on that soon.
