In 2012 I was asked to be the Art Liaison at Concrete Magazine. I met with with the editors of the Alabama mag to network and they commissioned me to do a piece in their Office on Sparkman. After the piece was finished they talked to me about where they wanted the magazine to go in the upcoming years and asked me to help. Since then I have partnered with the magazine to do several shows but our first combined effort was with Jurian Isabelle on Grind Nation.
Jurian Met with me for the first time that summer and explained his vision for an event where music, art and fashion could all showcase on equal terms. I felt like myself, he could see the gap between what our community was perceived to be and what it really was. I became the art component of the promo and through the magazine, part of the community.
