GCASFM – Book Fundraiser

GIVE CROHN’S A SLAP FROM ME (GCASFM) is a collaborative project founded by Matt
Strutt aka Cheffo31, to raise awareness of Crohn’s disease, with the help of some of the world’s most prolific graffiti artists, street artists and illustrators. Armed with a stack of 2000 USPS labels for artists to draw on, our aim is to turn these artistic interpretations of the title Give Crohn’s A Slap From Me, into a limited edition book
which will raise money for Crohn’s & Colitis UK. With new team members on board, designers Moose & Yeti, Andre Leitão and Joana Morgado, ex-VNA writer Ro Elfberg and media whizz Jack Shearring, the project is stronger than ever. Over 70 artists are now involved, we have a successful live art event under our belt and growing coverage of the project, we’re already slapping Crohn’s left, right and centre.. and we’ve only just begun.

SMC[3] – Son$ of Anarchy

Sydney-based artist, SMC[3] is kind of old-school. His head-spinning characters and artwork draw influence from skateboarding, anarchy and cartoons. We caught up with the mad bomber for a quick quiz, ahead of his entry into this year’s Sidewayz skate and snowboard art event…

Your art’s pretty tripped, what gives you the ideas for your characters?

I get a lot of influence from 60’s, 70’s & 80’s surf, skate & punk comics and art, the characters are mostly trippy, cartoony, monster-based funk and ooze.
