On July 20th, FTK came out to represent Austin at the first ever entirely all-female Beat Sessions Vol. 8 in Houston. Rhae and I carpooled out there to be a part of the 2v2 mural battle. Our Still Tippin’ mural collab was the result of our face-off against the home team champs, Clear and Purple Sody.
Spending middle and high school in Northeast Houston, my character was an homage to the Space City and S.U.C. hip-hop. Miss Alien is swanging through in her candy-painted and woodgrain-wheeled UFO, banging Mike Jones (SLAB remix, obvs), and splashing her purple sody all around. The color palette for the whole piece is repping Astros colors and her t-shirt shouts out NASA. Rhae went off creating this ultra-sharp, dripped out graffiti piece and got the background looking out of this world.
We completed this 8’x8′ collab piece in just under an hour and a half in this timed battle front of a live audience. The home team ended up taking the W, but we had such a fun time visiting, catching up with old friends, and creating this piece.
Ladies HTX Beat Sessions T-Shirt Design Collab
We also had the opportunity to collaborate on a t-shirt design to commemorate the event! After a bit of discussion, I proposed a couple of different wireframes that we voted on. Each person contributed their portion of the design for me to collage together, based on the wireframe.
