On May 22, 2008 a 50-something year-old woman by the name of Patty Mayo sent out a desperate plea over YouTube. Her cries echoed through cyber space, receiving over 8,000 hits in just 2 days. Her wish was simple: for her favorite graffiti artist, Rime aka Jersey Joe, to paint a peeing dog on the side of her trailer. This was no ordinary trailer. During the last 10 years it has housed over 200 rescue dogs, abandoned and rescued, and is currently home to eight. Touched by Patty’s heartfelt message, Rime booked a flight and headed back to the armpit of America: New Jersey. Now for the first time the public is invited to witness the event unfold.
Check out the first issue of The Art of Storytelling magazine for the full story of the "pimp my trailer" fiasco, exclusive interviews with the residents, an in depth interview with Jersey Joe and let’s not forget the aftermath. The story continues with exploding propane tanks, missing roofs, and a joy ride through the legal system. We brought along our staff photographer, Matty Brown to get some amazing portrait shots and photos, visit him at www.mattybrownphotography.com, he’s dope.
