It's been awhile since I've seen PYRO hit up! Last time I remembered seeing him was the last coupla years of highschool. We would get the crew together and have a black book session, sketch, exchange insights, talk about hiphop and what we could do to make things good. At the time there was a hiphop shop in Maui Market Place called "The Vault," where you could buy tips and international graff mags. Before it closed down a sweet guy from the shop hooked me up with a bag thins and fats and that was the last of it. Ahhhh the amount of time I spent on www.artcrimes.com and my obsession with DAIM's melting 3D letters and MISS VAN's yummy characters. It's nice to smell fresh paint again...
