Legendary Graffiti artist Cope 2 had a booth setup at this years New York Comic Con. He had some really dope pieces on display like his Boundless DIY water tower, custom backpack, spray can art piece, comic book “Indie Destroys” and more.
When we got to his booth he wasn’t around so we didn’t get a chance to interview him. Hopefully we’ll cross paths in the near future to see if we can make that happen!
