Get ready, Muncie. This here truck carries flavors so good that rice begs to be on bottom.

Just learned about this film today. If you were a fan of ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse’ or surreal music videos like Peter Gabriel’s ‘Sledgehammer’ then you already know and love this man’s work. Whether you have heard of him or not his work is incredibly interesting, imaginative and funny as hell. Do yourself a favor and watch the trailer. Then do Wayne White a favor and buy the film like we did.

We learned recently that your friends here at FAB Crew are 2 of the 3 Indianapolis finalists in the Red Bull Rubber + Sole design contest. The Regional Final is Friday night at Red Bull House of Art in Detroit where our designs will be viewed and judged against the top 3 from Detroit, the top 3 from Cincinnati and of course, another design from Indy. We submitted designs for a previous Rubber Sole contest but sadly, were not among the finalists so this is a welcome piece of luck.

While we’re in town we’ll be touching base with Detroit native and our SubSurface homie, Tead. He needs no intro. Below is a nicely shot and edited video of the artist in action earlier this year on a slick commission piece.

Thanks to the guys at Bombing Science for keeping track of our progress and once again sharing our work with their audience. Good lookin out fellas.

For those who don’t know, Oranje is an annual event in Indy that combines visual art, music and interaction with the party atmosphere of a club.  After 11 years, FAB has painted something: a school bus, a delivery minivan, canvases or just a constructed wall, Oranje has always provided new and interesting opportunities for us. This year they really outdid themselves.

We got connected with their sponsor, PBR, and talked about the possibility of painting a box truck. That seemed like a high enough goal and it would have been a blast. We were shocked when we got to the spot and saw that PBR had left us a brand new, 36 foot, 18 bay trailer.

Needless to say we had to revisit our concepts to accommodate the size. What a great time we had working on it throughout the week and especially on the night of the party. The crowd is always great and the Oranje team is top-notch. Thanks again, friends. Here’s to 2013…

The jam is now well behind us and most of the loose ends have been tied up so we wanted to make sure and share our process for the 2012 wall. We received a lot of compliments on the work and made an even better impression on the community than we expected. We all agree it’s our best crew piece to date and we wanted to show some of the planning that helped us to ultimately create a winning strategy to get it done.

The concept was chosen purely because our first SubSurface production used the ‘Moles Undergraound’ theme but didn’t really hit the mark. With that, we narrowed down the spots and chose which would be ours. For the first time ever, we planned out our production to scale.



 

DF Crew came to town in force over Labor Day Weekend. Among them were some we have known for a while and a couple of our RTD crewmates. Thanks to Kwaze, Rapes, Emit, Ewok, Jick, Vogey and especially to Dero; an NYC subway legend (and one hell of a nice guy) whose style is iconic. These cats were all cool as a fan and their work speaks for itself. They’re hilarious too. Enjoy the vacation footage.
