wise words from mr Jimi Crayon

My 10 steps to becoming a shit hot freelance creative

1 - Always answer your emails as soon as you read them.
2 - Never intentionally ignore a phonecall even if you think it's gonna be bad news.
3 - Make your bed each morning before you leave your house.
4 - Don't be afraid to tell people your ideas. If someone steals it and does it before you, you were probably never gonna do it anyway.
5 - Concentrate on the job you have on at that moment rather than ones that may come in the future. Now is all you have.
6 - Always say yes when a client offers you a drink.
7 - Never play it safe. Better to fuck up something difficult than to nail something easy.
8 - Never take on to much. Better to do 1 thing properly than 10 things shoddily. Shoddiness only gets hired once.
9 - Only work when you've got  work to do. Better to go to the park or museum than stare blankly at a computer screen.
10 - Don't go to the same places or see the same people the whole time

And one for luck now that your making serious dolla!
Invoice immediately and learn to save money. Your not getting paid anything for 30 days and that's if your lucky.

I don't often post music on this blog, but I've had this album in my car for over a year now, thanks to Mr Fame, and have now decided there are some sick tracks on there, have a listen.

RIP Guildford Skatepark

Last piece ever done at the park
The skate park in Guildford has now been demolished. I don't know anyone who has painted it as much as I have, these are just a few of the walls I've done there, must be around 50 more on my old computer and from pre-digital camera days. It was the first place I saw anyone painting and it was where I did my first pieces. I'm gonna miss it but hopefully this summer there will be a new park with more walls.





Dark Same

Painted Leake St today with Samer, nice and sunny, I've missed painting in London.
