I write Ouch, I came up with it awhile back when I was in between words. I really liked it because it was and still is very challenging for me. I think thats why I kept it. I go by Ouchey as well. I have been writing since 1999, I rep THR, MLS and Qset
My biggest influence coming up was Diefor, he goes by cash1st sometimes as well. I met him around 9 years ago I guess. He really showed me the ways on structure and style. I still don’t really know why he chose to be my guide. Changed my life though really, he looked after me in life, graffiti and beef.
And second to him would be vic20, he really taught me how to push myself on a bombing level that i needed. He also gave me a lot of advice and helped me get out of crime. i consider these two guys to be very important to me and helped me out with many things. special thanks to both of them.
to me this piece is just so damn hard, WWL has the ability to rape any city he goes to and what he can to do transit is just so damn impressive. he will do in a week what others do in a year.
this dude and his boys are what I grew up seeing and much respect to them.
Dondi hands down to me is one the best if not the best at this. I learned so much and was inspired by him so many times over the years
this isn’t my favorite of his work but I really like what he does and respect his stance on transit
this isn’t my favorite of his work but this speaks volumes about him. i encourage any and everyone to check his work out if you can.
4. Favourite city and why ?
My favorite city is Seattle. I’ve never really thought about why I like it but I just do. I’ve met a lot of great people all over and had some great times in other places. I like it in Seattle.
My favorite food is pizza, all types and my favorite drink is Perrier.
My biggest vice is probably tequila.
I would have to say my biggest gripe is people not minding their own business, people not being able to mind their own business can really mess with peoples lives.
Favorite shoe? damn that is hard one, as far as what i own and wear from time to time would be Addidas sambas or a good old fashioned Airmax. I really like some of the early year jordans though I’ve never owned them except for an old pair Diefor kicked me down.

TWIST, DIEFOR, SOBER, VIC20, GREY, TWIGS, AMAZE, JADE.. I could go on and on…
) My cat Stinkey, I wish he could get beers with me.
2) Dondi, nuf said.
3) My brother Casey, I don’t get to see him enough.
This is hard question to answer because i feel too many writers are not getting what they have rightfully earned. I’m not going to pick any one person because its just too difficult.
I’m only close to a few people in it. I don’t consider myself to be a heavy hitting member though i try my hardest to make everyone proud, and do my best to rep the shit out it. For me though i would say its about painting graffiti to the best of my abilities and not stoppin’ for no one and nothing ever.
I got caught up painting but that was years ago. knock on wood.
the five things within arms reach are
1) my cat
2) my phone
3) my girlfriend
4) a pen
5) a beer
Thats a tough question, the ninja turtle sleeping bag i used as a kid and a book hops gave me for my birthday last year. I would say my cat too but he’d already be gone and prolly be thinking im stupid for going into a burning house.
So much to do and so little time!
1) eat pizza in Italy
2) go to Australia
3) paint more transit
Im into traveling, hanging out with my friends and family, and just having a good time. I think there is something to be said about a good conversation over a nice meal with people you care about. I enjoy making pizza, I’ve been doing it for a decade and still love it.
I’m always trying to stay busy with work, traveling and graffiti in general. special shouts to Diefor, Hops, Vic20, Zae, Trees. you guys have been really supportive of me.
special thank you to my brother casey for believing me in my work.
shouts to everyone in THR MLS Qset and my family, I love all y’all!
