As cartooning is rooted in my heart, I blended into the graffiti world quite easily. Truth is one of my best friends badgered me for quite a few years before I gave into doing graff with him. Well as a result I am still doing some amount of graff to this day. I am spending more of my energies trying to take what I have learned from the streets and transform it to business. I started writing back in 96 or 97 while living in Ventura ca. I mainly worked on stickers that I freely gave away by the hundreds and spread like a disease across a large area of so cal. To this day I still get requests for some of my oldest stickers from people I do not know. It has been a great experience meeting and getting to know the different artist I have been exposed to through graffiti. The level of thought and creativity that is put into works by the artists I have known I truly inspiring. I would say this design is a tribute to my love for the streets and the people I have met on and from them. This SDC (social deviant culture-or-scott david cattanach) city block illustration has my love for detailed illustrations and cartooning intertwined with the respect I have for the different graff artists I have had the pleasure of meeting and calling friends. This piece is not quite done, it has some more rendering to go. I am using this as a progress piece and will update with finished piece when it is completed.
