As always, all the artists stepped up, with Sprinkles going in on the canvas like a man possessed. His sick mix of Chinese and Maori influences came good with a sterling effort on the wall.

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.
