Last week Miles Starkey and I talked about shooting the process of his popular paintings in Austin. He’s known for spray painting people’s eyes and he asked for a photo of my wife’s. I sent him this:
Our friend Ramon Maspons was in town from Barcelona so Ramon and I met Miles at the famous graffiti wall in Austin on Baylor Street. Brandi (the wife) was actually at work during the meet up so I decided not to tell her what we were up to. At this point, Miles began painting on the giant wall.
Brandi clocked out of work after dark, so the next day I surprised her with the painting. Don’t tell her I told you but she cried a little bit. It was great getting to see Miles work in his natural environment. –JWB
