I’m bustling along in my kitchen, humming while icing 3 dozen cookies – an assortment of white, pink, and polka dot (for good measure). I’m getting ready to add street ‘umph’ to these sweet cookies.
I meet up with Karlos Bumps, local Angeleno graffiti artist. Naturally, we begin by prepping my air brush gun. His compressor seems to be jammed, so he makes a few calls, and we hop on over to meet his buddies.
We park in a deserted alleyway in the pitch black. Rampart, LA. We slip through a back-door and enter a crowded room of really big dudes. I walk in, slightly terrified, balancing about 36 cookies on a tray that can fall at any moment.
