Blümchenkaffee

"Finally later today we gonna release some nice new stuff that we had been working on for quite a long time. I hooked up with my brother (my real brother, not one of those hundreds "brother from another mother" graff buddies... no, my brother from my mother! ha!) to bring you some great cross-over things from both of our personal passions. Together we started our journey into graffiti back then when we were younger and we've been through some crazy good times! Stories & memories! While i kept going further into graffiti and art on my side, my brother turned into a dedicated coffee-ista. Roasting his own little company's coffee beans and running the neat coffee manufactory Markt 11 in the city of Jena/Germany. In the past i already did a lot of design work for his company but now we did a equal colaboration as a true family thing.

I couldn't stand to call the whole project "Blümchenkaffee". A German expression that is like the worst credit for a cup of served coffee. It's an old-fashioned term for "a very thin coffee". So extremely thin that you could see the "Blümchen" (floral) decor on the bottom of the porcelain cups...
Always thinking things from the other side... " FLYING FÖRTRESS

Later today we gonna drop all those new items here and on Förtress' brother company website: www.markt11.de

Grundschulklasse 4A

"Recently i had been invited this week to speak at a school in art classes. Not at the Bauhaus University but in a very smart elementary school. Showing the kids some of my graffiti works, speaking about vinyl toys and answering them all their questions. Also doing some live drawing for them on a canvas for their class room. The kids were super excited about having me there. I guess back in the days when i was their age i would have been blasted too to see some modern arts instead of some old farts.
I then also asked them to join in to draw on a paper with our Teddy Trooper shape lines and bring in their phantasy and skills.
Here are all the funky results (in no particular order).
Thanx to all the cool kids of "Klass 4A" and their lovely teacher Miss H. for having me as a guest!"
