PIECEBOOK RELOADED NYC Book Launch
The Etnies showroom 29 Oct 09
Much LOVE with continued success Beyond Your Imagination to my big bro Dave CHINO
and the multi talented Sacha SHR!
The next book in the critically acclaimed, historical PIECEBOOK series again gives owners the opportunity to add their own art to the ranks of actual graffiti kings and legends! So realistic, they even scanned the backsides of some pieces to give the illusion of ink bleeding through the pages. It's beautifully printed, looks completely authentic and continues the tradition they started in the original PIECEBOOK- creating a dream blackbook filled with only the best.
Dave and me. Doc TC5 in back setting up.
KAVES, Sacha & Dave

The iNternets Celebrity, that sneaker fiend, Dallas Penn aka BluCheez aka @FYMTG, blessed us with some blog love over at dallaspenn.com happy to see so many familiar faces from inside & outside our old alma mater Brooklyn Tech in Fort Greene, which boasts a long list of contributers to Hip Hop History.
Dallas et moi
Closest I'll ever get to natural "Double D's"... HAH!
Quick off the top- Bobbito Garcia (DJ Cucumber Slice), TATU XMEN Pres, Milk & Gizmo, RAE WIC, BIAS, RAB CAC, DIRE, G-BO The Pro and so many others down since wayback cut those classes! Our cheerleaders and boosters were even in Spike Lee's SCHOOL DAZE. Keep it real!
(: Oh, yes - and there were also three lovely queens - Simone FSU, Jessie BYI & Julie BTS ;)
Thanks again, Dallas!
At the end of the event, Psycho Les asked me & my girl Lee Lo where the afterparty was jumping off... ;)
Unfortunately, we were pretty hungry and tired after a long night that included last minute printing, buying markers and rustling up a table for Dave to sit behind! We wound up at Lucky Strike, and ran into Sacha, his new wife Raquel and a sleepy young beauty, the same place we'd all gone after the opening night of Sacha's very successful contribution to the NYC Hip Hop Theater Festival, an off-beat, on-tempo stage production starring both halves of the Beatnuts, Juju and Psycho Les, along with Sacha himself, aptly entitled DEEZ NUTS.
Maybe I'll add some more shots... some day...
