Ilo-ilo Battle Royale!

We got scorching graffiti action Iloilo courtesy of "U Swag Ilo-ilo Productions". Last August 25, 2012, the Ilonggo productions held "Batoru Rowairu", their answer to Japan's dystopic novel of the same name. But this time, no guns or random weapon objects were given and the battles are not fights to the death. Instead, it was pure fun under the sun's heat as writers battled over piecings and sketches, MCs over the best beats and rhymes and thrashers over the best flips.

In Thirdworld Skatepark, Baluarte, Molo, Iloilo City--

"Battle Royale" also celebrates KSIN's anniversary. More highlights from the event:

And don't think it's over because there's "The Aftermath".

The "Aftermath" invites writers to come to Laguda, La Paz, Iloilo this September 1 (that's tomorrow!) to paint in monochrome (black, white and gray) because as they say "style needs no colors." For inquiries, see the Kant Stop Ilonggos Now page.

Ilonggos sure know how to have fun and you can't stop them.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
