“The government had a system where the rich man’s son went to college, and the poor man’s son went to war” Muhammad Ali opposing the draft and the Vietnam war. He took the slings and arrows, and stood his ground as very few do.

For 11 days we’re presenting 11 artists and BSA readers and their wishes for the new year, 2011, in no particular order. Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are creators and fans of street art. Individually, each has added their expression of the creative spirit to the year now ending.
Today’s wish comes from BSA reader Eli Cook from Kentucky, who is a painter and a fan of Street Art. He shares with us his skillz and his wish;
“I wish to finish this painting by or during 2011, for my grand dad because his dad just passed and I wanted to do something for him”
