Today's guest is Francisco Reyes Jr. aka Never Made out of Los Angeles CA. Buckle up cause this episode is a gem. A long-ie, a quickie-ish if you will, but a gem...

During this episode we talk about:

-how Microsoft Paint was the gateway.

-being born in Compton and avoiding gang culture. 

-the CD cover that he saw and has just stuck with him.

-the designers and artists that he looks up to and why. @malikafavre @brokenfingaz @land

-the struggle to find a job after graduating and what that taught him. 

-his first meeting with Shepard Fairey. @obeygiant

-the two projects he has been a part of that he is the most proud of. A collab with Shepard Fairey and his first mural. 

-his Dilophosauraus drawings. Say that 10 times fast...

I really enjoyed this chat with Francisco, hence the long ass episode. Tonnes of fun, genuine and very talented guy. @nevermade.
