Tale of Two Cities: Impactful individuals, I say thank you.
November 20, 2011
While living in Los Angeles and establishing my platform, my circle here got bigger and bigger and then I started to get really close with fewer and fewer people. And the older we get the more these big social circles become smaller and smaller and ultimately life happens and many situations occurs where people move on or get pushed away or walk away, either way My love is love and I wanted to say thank you to those special people whom helped just by them being there, when timing allowed it.
So, I came across this YOU ARE HERE graphic from my friend who loved finding these rare and meaningful JPEGs and actually this one and another we're images he shared with me that I just fell in love with and ultimately inspired art work that Swag helped bring to life and help express big moments of my life.
I took this to Swag, the man the legend the artist and told him that I'd love this heart and I'd like to incorporate two maps: one side San Bernardino and one side Los Angeles. "Easy" he said.
He built it and put the red dot right in the center of the heart, then he says to me " lets get real personal, let's make the street names people who you love or mean something to you in your life right now."
well fuck! That couldn't make any more sense!
Swag was one those people who understood me, I'd walk with a very either minmul idea and he's blow it up to be ten times what I imagined or I come in with over produced idea he'd pull it down a little and say it with very little noise.
So my heart was not only stitched on my right arm but now my heart is fully exposed and on display and aloud we (swag and I) convey a piece for those family and friends whom impacted my life.
Names of streets:
and there were more to be added but due to the circumstance those names will not be addressed in this thank you piece.
