Posted in Events, Music, TIS on February 15, 2011 by tisscreenprinting

Think Tank & TIS joined forces and held one of Christmas’ and this year’s most outstanding shows ever. In memory of Ernesto “LAMAS” Escobedo, we held the Ernie Burger Bash, which was a full house, something we have never seen before. We had a wall full of Ernie’s pictures showing his growth as a young man, a graffiti writer, and his wonderful smile that lit up the room for days. LLAMA BEATS crew is the band that saw Ernie grow up back in the day. Their music is moving and fresh, that everyone who listens to them is addicted. The band members consist of Jose, George, Cal, and Sammy a.k.a. Parable. Ernie’s legacy lives on through their music. We also set up a booth with the last shirts we did with Ernie. It was an amazing time, so log on to their page on Facebook for info on more events, and don’t forget your Lama shirt at lamas.bigcartel.com.

During the Art Basel in December of last year, we lost an amazing person in the TIS family. Ernesto “Lamas” Escobedo at age 25 lost his life in a tragic car accident. He will never be forgotten, this essential person is a god send in our lives. To commemorate his success and contributions to TIS, we have made and designed personal LAMAS shirts. All originals were created by Ernie himself. We will be selling them at lamas.bigcartel.com . Put your LAMAS up and show your support and know Ernie wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. In the third edition of The Infamous Magazine, you will witness some of Ernie’s influential graffiti. We will be supplying copies of the issues real soon; will post them up on the lamas big cartel website, so keep visiting the website for new shirts.
