Who you are?
Hello! I write MEME. Nickname given to me by my grandmother. Which game?? Lol. I have been painting off and on for 12 years.
I grew up in a small town where I had never seen graffiti before. One day while out of town I saw a freight train with all these colors and shapes. It blew my freaking MIND! I went the next day and stole some spray paint from a hardware store. The rest is history.
Favorite thing to paint?
I love painting everything I can get my little hands on!! I'm new to the legal walls and productions. Just open to having fun and trying to get cleaner.
Any good chase story or buddy story?
I was painting somewhere cutty in Santa Cruz CA, a ditch spot while heavily intoxicated, which I'll leave some of that info out.
I had some guy friends up on the walkway above me. My friends were drinking all while trying to be look outs. I was pretty much in sewer water, down in this dark scary ass ditch. Suddenly I hear something running at me full speed!
I grab my bag, duck down to make sure no one sees me. The sound stopped. There was nothing I could see. I was spooked so I started painting very fast to finish and get the hell out of there! As I'm doing my last touches the thing comes at me full speed thrashing through the stink and mucky water - soooo fast! All I see is a bunch of bright red eyes coming out of the darkness at me. Then I finally see it was three freaking deer. I jumped up the ladder so fast. I caught my thigh on barbed wire; I still have a small scar from that night.
