This is probably the quickest response we got to our initial emailing to link our project and finding walls. Jack (Black) Scorpios daughter, Tashima, instantly flowed with our ideas and saw similar visions with the project, and welcomed it with open arms. Unfortunately for us, but lucky for her, she was away on holiday when we arrived. However, Jack and Spyder (his son) were equally open about Nicin’ up the island. (more about Black Scorpio on my previous post: here.)
First weekend in Kingston, Jack kindly invited us along to Rebel Salute, an amazing night-day long reggae gig. When we came back the second time, he took us to Bob Marley Tribute concert held by the Marley ‘kids’ in Trench Town. We were lucky seeing the likes of Damian Marley, Romain Virgo and Capleton. They also helped sorting out accommodation for the rest of the stay in Jamaica above Spyders rec. studio, which we had a short sneaky peek while SmokeKing was recording some dubplates with Buju Bantons sister Adena Myrie.
Enough about this ‘boring’ stuff, now, painting! It’s the first ROOF painting I’ve done. It was quite refreshing working on a higher level, and with a bit of a distance from any interruptions or distractions I could concentrate more. The only discomfort, or difficulty was trying not to stumble and fall in all these iron poles sticking up for wall extensions. This paint took two days, as first day we had to get hold of more buckets of house paint (…as someone was lucky to spill half a box in his rucksack, got to have a couple of minor accidents..or?!)
Last post will be from Tuff Gong Int. (Marley rec studio.)
