We have been noticing more and more, "Why don't artists get to endorse things/have their own branded painting materials? Sure, there are spraycans, calendars, tee-shirts, and skate decks with art, but what about a brush set. October 2010 cover artist, Greg "Craola" Simkins has his brush set with Treckell Brushes, which previously sold out but is now back in stock. More after the jump . . .

Dabs Myla and our October 2010 cover Greg "Craola" Simkins just painted a new collaborative mural together in Downtown Los Angeles. The piece was created as part of the LA Freewalls Project with Jet Set Graffiti. As expected, both Dabs Myla and Craola are talented figurative painters, and are able to translate that to outdoor murals seemlessly. Plenty of more pics after the jump . . .
