New EWOK interview

April 23 2009 . 01:37am

I first interviewed Ewok (HM, AWR, MSK, SEVENTH LETTER) about five years ago when he and Chen AKB were doing live-painting for the Third Annual Twin Cities Hip-Hop Festival & Celebration. Since then he’s changed his address to the much nicer climate of Southern California, and joined MSK and THE SEVENTH LETTER, two of the most prolific and innovative graffiti crews in the world. He also happens to be a founding member of Life Sucks Die magazine as well as a member of Minneapolis super-design firm, BURLESQUE of NORTH AMERICA.

In wanting to kick up dust for WACTAC’s event “Don’t Sleep On It,” I thought it would be good to check in with Ewok and see if we can pressure his Burlesque affiliates to bring him out for the event.

What were you like as a kid?

I don’t know, that’s kind of hard to talk about who I was or who I am now. I think I was pretty normal though, you know, played sports, did a lot of skateboarding, those sorts of things. I have a younger brother who’s seven years younger than me, so I think that’s a big reason for why I got into art, being an only-child for so long I had to entertain myself. I think sitting down and having to be imaginative was a big part of that. I always remember drawing though. I always was very interested in art, like I remember going to my grandparents’ house and they’d have these portraits of my aunts on the wall and I remember just staring at them for a really long time, kind of getting lost in them at the dinner table.
