name- JABER,JABBERWOKIE,JABS, AKA THE WHITE NINJA….AKA “FUCK THAT GUY” AKA METAL HEAD AKA EL NINJA BLANCO
AKA “THE VAGINA TAMER”  AKA “SHHHHH” I CAN’T TELL YOU MY OTHER NAMES….

location- WEST COAST
started- 1991
influences- I LIKED JAPANESE ANIME, DEATH METAL BAND COVERS,SHAPER WONDER (RIP) CHRIS AND RICK IN HIGH SCHOOL… SUNDAY MORNING PAPER COMIC SECTION, M.C ESHER, MARCEL DUCHAMP,AND ANY OTHER DADAISM ARTIST. THE OPERATION IVY COVER WAS A HUGE INSPIRATION TO DO PUNK ROCK RELATED ART… I THINK PUNK ROCK-METAL INFLUENCED ME MORE THAN HIP HOP. BUT THE WELL KNOWN WRITERS THAT INFLUENCED ME IN THE 90’S WERE CES,LEKS,DREAM TDK, KOLAGE,CURVE,DAIM….TOO MANY BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.

effect- I HOPE TO EFFECT PEOPLE IN A POSITIVE WAY. THE THING IS I AM MORE OF A” GRAFFITI WRITER ” THAN AN “ARTIST” , MEANING I SPEND MY LIFE TRYING TO DO ILLEGAL GRAFFITI. I DO PLENTY OF ART WORK AS WELL IT IS JUST NOT REALIZED COMPARED TO THE AMOUNT OF GRAFF I DO. ULTIMATELY  THE GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN AND MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH. I WANT TO DO FUNNY STUFF OR GRAFFITI ART THAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT AND QUESTIONS LIFE. I WANT PEOPLE TO LOOK AT MY STUFF AND SHAKE THEIR HEAD WHILE SAYING ” OH THAT NINJA”.

long run- where will it take you? – IN THE LONG RUN I WANT TO TRAVEL DOING ART WHICH IS PRETTY MUCH WHAT I AM DOING NOW. I WOULD HAVE NEVER SEEN ALL THE PLACES I HAVE BEEN WITH OUT GRAFFITI. SOMETIMES I MAKE GOOD MONEY SOMETIMES I DON’T BUT I MAKE THE BEST EXPERIENCES.
I GUESS I AM WORKING MORE ON CLOTHING RIGHT NOW SO I HOPE THAT WILL TAKE OFF SOMEDAY. FOR NOW IT IS SMALL BUT I DO HAVE STUFF IN 8 STORES AND ON LINE SO IT GETS BIGGER. I STARTED IT WITH MY GIRLFRIEND WHO DESIGNS FOR BIG STORES LIKE FOREVER 21 AND TJ MAXX AND ALL THAT CORPORATE SHIT. 2 NINJAS IS A SMALL COMPANY AT SMALL STORES. I AM HAVING FUN MAKING SHIRTS AND HATS AND SEEING THEM SELL. TO BE HONEST THERE IS NO FINISH LINE WHEN YOU ARE A GRAFFITI WRITER. THERES NO REAL PRIZE OR REAL ULTIMATE GOAL…. JUST LITTLE GOALS. THIS SPOT,THAT MAGAZINE FEATURE? THIS ART SHOW, THAT COMMISSION JOB. I FEEL LIKE IF YOU REACH YOUR GOAL YOU MAY QUIT AND THAT IS NOT MY INTENSIONS… SO I GUESS I SEE THE FUTURE AS BEING FUN AND GETTING MY WORK EVERYWHERE I CAN BEFORE I DIE.

ALSO I PLAN ON MAKING MORE MOVIES…. BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY!
