One of my earliest memories is of a tiny two bedroom apartment on a drab corner of Budlong and Exposition in Los Angeles where I lived with my sister, my mom and my dad.. Through the intimacy of a two sided wall heater that we shared with our neighbors we were forced to listen to a song that would go on to define a generation and change the landscape of music and culture. It was Rapper's Delight by The Sugarhill Gang - the long version. The neighbors played it on repeat. Every day. All 14 minutes and 35 seconds of it. Though I was sheltered and protected from a lot of the harsher realities of inner city life, my sense of design and style is heavily influenced by the visual elements that grew out of the sub-culture that was to become known as hip hop. The fashion, graffiti, dance.

Grafic was created in homage to the environments that inspired this culture.. The breaks in chain link fences, the ever present pigeons, lowriders rolling by blasting that insistent bass line, brick walls, stucco, and telephone lines. I like to think that the creativity and inventiveness that quilters and sewists use to cut up fabric and sew it back together comes from the same creative place that hip hop culture evolved. Rap was created with just two turntables and a microphone. Street art and graffiti with a spray paint and a blank wall. And we all create beauty and magic with fabric and thread. That is what I hope Grafic inspires you to do. To create more magic..
