Fill-ins, pieces, tattoos and fine art, Mike Giant is a man of many talents. To hone in specifically on his graf work, Handselecta got a little lesson on Giant’s many handstyles. The inked-up artist spoke on the influences that got him started as a kid, while recounting his early days in New Mexico. There’s a series of tag-covered black book pages to complement the oral history.
It’s a nice look at the most basic element of a writer and reminder of the differences between how heads like Mike came up, versus the way things are now for a lot of newer people. Handselecta’s “Flip The Script” is slated for release March 8, featuring Mike Giant alongside a cast of legends.
