BOSTON!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2008 by n8vandyke

We put our stink all over Boston last weekend. This was the second of three spots on the Sparks Ignite What’s Next Tour. Sam Flores and Alex Pardee were my pARTners in crime. In seemingly typical fashion we came, we saw, we drank, we head-butted, we arted… we enjoyed. Here is a video of the adventure along with some photographic proof… Phoenix is next… 10/04/08… get ready…

The tightest crew in town… L to R: Sam, Short Alex, N8, Tall Alex, Mickey

ATLANTA!

Hey guys,  I just got back from Atlanta. I’m one of the three art clowns on the 2008 Sparks Ignite What’s Next Tour. The short of it is to get three artists together (Sam Flores, Alex Pardee and that N8 guy) and go to various cities and promote Sparks while finger painting live. The first part of the three-part tour was Atlanta and damn is that place hot. People were super cool while we crashed their city on a mission to have fun and make pretty. Here is a small slice beginning with a video and followed by some pics. BOSTON… I’ll kick yer ass this weekend…

 

Sam Flores, Alex Pardee and N8 Van Dyke land in Atlanta (I’m clearly the teacher helping the kids cross the street)…

Time to teach the kids a pool lesson…

We got lost on the way out of the pool hall and ended up at a strip club called the Claremont Hotel…

This guy got a very sad lapdance and ran off to take care of business in the parking lot right afterward…

Sam get’s face deep in Blondie…

Sam with some well hidden Claremont nips… 

The three artists bid “Good Night” to The Claremont…

Time to get some extra supplies at the hardware store. Here’s a shot of my helper, Alex, and I. I rode that thing through the store for 20 minutes and nobody said a thing…

A very small sample of our weapons…

Time to make a mess…

My first mess…

Sam, Alex and N8 saying later to Atlanta. Boston… yer next…

 

 

 

 

Coming to a city near you (if you live in Atlanta, Boston or Phoenix)…
