The next few days went by pretty quickly. I was now a guest at the house were Romeo was staying. I would get up in the morning and go directly to the studio. I’d never had that luxury in my life before.
Usually the way we worked was that Romeo would intervene an image, usually with acrylic paint. I had to come up with the caption for the image and create the stencil. This sounds a lot easier that it actually is. Sometimes I would stare at the images for what seemed like hours. Some captions came to me very easily, some were almost forced out of me. Each stencil was handcut and applied with acrylic paint. Sometimes I would get nervous to apply a stencil to Romeo’s finished work.
