Live painting w/ Gabriel


Help us out.

If you're reading this, LBP is trying to make some extra dough so we signed up for AdSense. I put a link on this blog and all you have to do is click on it. We earn about $1.50 per click so it would be great if you used the links. If you don't have Firefox yet either download it off the link on the bottom and you will get us some more cash. Hopefully, if we get enough $$ from this I'll take ya out to dinner.



Something else

I was fishing around on the Suite 100 site and didn't realize that they have full pages for all the artists..totally awesome!!!! LBP's page.



No longer at the Goldsmith Building

We did a nice piece for the 24th for The Portland Underground show...We kinda rushed it, but it was still real nice.

The show at Suite 100 is ending this week, so those of you that haven't checked it out yet, make sure you get out there and see it.

Some big news: LBP is no longer located IN the Goldsmith Building. Chalk it up to politics, just like it always is. Here's the lowdown, our landlord was asking us about renting some of our live painting pieces for an event he was planning. We never gave him a definite answer simply becuase he never told us when it was. He then caught me when I was at my studio and asked me about getting them that weekend. Once again I didn't give him an answer because we had to set a price as to how much we would allow him to rent them. So the day that we we're heading to Seattle for the Happily Ever After show I called him up and let him know that we would let him hang them for $50 per painting - perfectly reasonable. He then told me that it was rediculous that I charge him a total of $150 to rent our paintings, to simply cover damages.
Then he told us that he no longer wanted us in the building and to get out simply for the fact that "he didn't like us" - WHAT!?! He then gave no real answer other than he didn't like us when I felt that was not a good enough reason to want us to leave and no longer reside in his building. He then told us that we were 'taking advantage' of the situation. He then also revoked his deal with us to paint a very large mural in the new entrance of the building.

This was really not something I understood from a man that supposedly "supports the local art scene". Shouldn't he support our business then? There shouldn't be any problem what so ever with paying less than 10% of each painting.

The next day when Mensen and I were hanging our pieces at the 100 Gallery, I got a call from, guess who? David Gold, apologizing for kicking us out of our studio. I really could not believe he had the balls to do so. So I told him no deal and that we were leaving at the end of the month.
David Gold gets our big Asshole of the Month Award! I suggest anyone thinking of getting a studio at the Goldsmith Building (20 NW 5th Ave., Portland, OR) strongly rethink doing business with a man who does not actually support the arts, but only wants to have his name boosted with the false pretenses of supporting art.

Peace, ZeeS


KRS-One gives it right back to Hannity on Fox


Here's some flix from the group show we we're in last weekend in Seattle.

The show was at the Suite 100 Gallery and was curated by Monica Choy.

The Bear Prince/ Bear King piece has been sold, but all the others are still for sale.
I suggest contacting Monica Choy for more details and to see more pictures from the show.


My jaw hit the floor with this



I have started up an eBay account to sell small pieces of work that I conjure up. This isn't recent but here's a set of records from Vinyl Killers 3 that I did awhile back.

Our New Things...

At the end of last month we signed a pretty little contract with Berbati's Pan. We completed 2 previous shows there and Anthony loved our work. So we have already completed one show at Berbati's on the 10th of March. Here's a look at the finished piece.

The 2 previous shows were put on by Hip-Hop Anonymous/ Portland Underground.

This is from the Feb 8th show:

The following show on Feb. 24th was split with artist Gabriel. He created a great background while we planted our funny looking characters on top of his urban apocalypse.

Our New Member:

LBP has added a new member - Crumz. He made his debut on March 9th at the Represent show at Someday Lounge.

New Residence:

LBP's home living has made a change to N. Portland; its an actual house. So that means that our backyard board construct will now become bigger. For those that haven't seen the last piece before the move --
