“My approach on paper is often similar to outdoor pieces: loose, aggressive, and executed with little planning in terms of the end result. I avoid using pencil and go into a white page with light but hold marker strokes or curves, progressively working darker as the piece takes shape. Every stroke is influenced by the tone and energy of the one before it. From an abstract composition as a starting point, I tend to go in with layers of repetitive figurative imagery that go with the flow that is already laid out on the page. The freestyled characters should seem in motion, up to shit in some sort of fashion, often side profile. Text helps to set the mood. I know the work is done with there is enough narrative to tell many layered intersecting stories.” – Rime

1xRUN Thru Interview
Moving Into Now & Dangerous Joseph Shit by Rime

1xRun: Tell us a little bit about the execution “Moving Into Now”, when was this piece created and with what materials?
Rime: “Moving Into Now” was created over a few sessions over a week and a half period back in the summer of 2013 with markers and shit. I worked on it while in New York City and Los Angeles. The original is the same size as the prints here, 18”x24” inches. There is no definite game plan with these type of works. I draw when in the mood and build on whatever is already on the page.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece compared to your other work?
Rime: This piece has elements inspired by my move back to New York City earlier this year. After 8 years out west it’s nice to be back home.

1xRun: Let’s talk about “Dangerous Joseph Shit” a 60-page limited edition zine that catalogs some of your recent work, tell us about the theme and what people can expect in this zine.
Rime: “Dangerous Joseph Shit” is a compilation of some recent work from the past two years. The aim with the layout is to show the influence graffiti has on my paper work and vice versa.

1xRun: The idea for “Dangerous Joseph Shit” began as a follow up to your Arrest Sheet portfolios, tell us a bit about why you feel that zines and zine culture are so important to graffiti culture?
Rime: I think zines are a good way to display a portion of work or theme in a non formal way. Growing up in graffiti, collecting magazines and books was always a big deal. With the internet taking over of the documentation of graffiti it seems rare to see graffiti in print and not on a screen.
