A year ago today we lost Adam Yauch. It’s been a very long, full, fast as shit year. I can’t believe it’s been a year.
You may have heard, they dedicated a park to him in Brooklyn. Like most everything to do with his death, it makes me cry. But what gave me joy today is that one of my best and oldest friends – with whom I saw the Boys perform on several tremendous occassions – took his son this morning to check it out.
They left tags and flowers, and though I wasn’t wasn’t with them, I left my heart.
RIP Adam Yauch, you brought much joy and light into our lives.
The amazing Kristy Kizzee, also known as Bombastitch, has created something fantastic and is giving it away!!! A fabulous pattern to make an xstitch tribute to MCA. Stitching and BBoys? I can hardly contain myself!
You know I’m stitching this up as soon as I get a chance; one for me, one for MJ, one for T… Go check her shiz out, she’ll hook you up!
I must have posted these pieces when I made them in 2009, but they were the very first things I sold and the first show I was in. I couldn’t believe how lucky I was, not only did I get to make art for a professional show, but it was a tribute to my beloved Beasties. And when I met Yauch at the Farmer’s Market I said, “I made the needlepoint of you guys!” He pretended to know what I was talking about. Sigh.
So here they are again, in tribute to Yauch, and also as a shout out of continued love and support for Mike D and Adam H, my tribute to the boys: “They’re Crafted,” and “Tom Carvel Approved.”
