I had the pleasure with meeting up with one of my favorite sticker and street artists, AKO from San Francisco. Not sure whether or not I should interview him with stupid Q & A's, I made the conscious decsion just to hang out with the guy, drink some beers, and get super Irie with the guy.

7 hours later, what I found out most about the guy is his love and passion for art and the artists around him. He said the early 90's is when graff entered his life and from there on, his every moment has been about art and the urban underground art movement. I been collecting AKO's stickers for almost a year now and just found out he made his own designer plush! Only 20 were ever hand made and I was blessed to recieve his LAST one!

It was 100% clear to me that AKO/AKAYO will most likely be a name that everybody will be seeing more of. Anyways, AKO was pleased to make sure everyone from TACO knows that his favorite tacos are from "KING TACO." Thanks again AKO, and keep up the great work! ~ 455ER/3:16/4:20
