Describe your work in one word: Grimy

Facemaskxx used the perfect word to describe his work: GRIMY. He’s a gritty dude from NY and it shows through his work. His line work is rough and raw, reminisicent of comic book sketching. There’s a consistent use of a bright lime green that he uses that gives a great contrast to the the dark rugged nature of his works. He also uses a few characters, they can be seen repeated in various pieces, including screen printed on clothing available through the site listed. You can also catch some of his music on soundcloud.
