Lush interview

What's your name?
I'm, uh, H.E. Pennypacker. I'm a wealthy industrialist and philanthropist and, uh, a bicyclist.



Where do you reside?
Merica n Canada at the moment, but I usually reside in Melbourne Australia, its alright if you like saxophones.

How long you been writing?
I have been writing since about grade one, I wrote alot of the brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. Now I mostly just write Harry Potter slash Sonic the Hedgehog fan fiction. ie: "Dumbledore slowly stroked Sonics moist spikes, his blue rubbery skin excited him terribly"

I hear you got a book coming out?
Yeah its just a Sonic meets Dragonball Z meets Thundercats fan fiction. But at novel length.

How come there's always naked girls stood by your pieces?
I blackmail them, or just tell them I can make you a star. You know the whole Hollywood casting couch maneuver.


Do you get a lot of hate for parodying traditional graffiti stereotypes?
Obviously, alot of writers are uneducated, on drugs or just plain dumb. If you didnt get the joke yet your just never going to get the joke, thus the joke is on you. Also I think the posturing of some people who write is laughable.
I mean according to the internet I ride fixed gear bikes, wear tight pants, work as a lumberjack, have three big toes, live as a breatharian, dated Al Sharpton, wrestled a crocodile, produced a country music album with a horse and so on.
All of course are true fact.
But whats that got to do with scribbles on a wall, whats baggy jeans got to do with it, a kangol got to do with it, sporting a blade got to do with it, whats love got to do, got to do with it.


You often paint pretty obscene images, what made you start painting like this?
When I was in Jail for stabbing another writer in his buttocks because he went over my burner outlined with chrome, I thought fuck it I cant seem to do any real graffiti Im just going to do some faker, hipster styled garbage that will appeal to dudes who wear eyeliner like Russell Brand. And so they say the rest is history.

I guess you like Mercyful Fate, what other bands you like?
Whatever band Vice Magazine tells me is cool. Or whatever Pitchfork tells me is cool, because I wear tight pants so my brain gets less blood because half of it is cut off by the tightness of my lady jeans.
But In reality Ive been listening to alot of Three six Mafia, Project Pat and Insect Warfare. Just good wholesome christian music really.

How do you feel about people still saying graffiti is an element of hiphop?
I really dont care, I just enjoy making them squirm or break a sweat on the forehead below the Kangol. If any hip hop nerds want to break dance battle me thats cool. Or have a freestyle rap battle on the topic thats also cool. i have a extensive collection of polo shirts and Nikes for all occasions such as above. I often battle Chinese hiphop kids downtown, i wear one of those pilots helmets and get wicked spinnage.

Finally, (since you got a lot of internet attention at the moment) do you think the net is a good or bad thing for graffiti?
Its gonna be good for me because I plan to laugh all the way to the bank, branded shoes, hats, toilet paper. The fucking works. Just like Hello Kitty, your going to see me on little asian girls all day. Isnt that why anyone writes, to get that offer from Nike to do a colorway with them. Thats what Subway Art told me at least.

YO MAD SHOUT OUT TO BABY CHICO, COPE2, SCOOBY DOO DOO, DJ PAUL, THE POPE, MARCO POLO, SAMMY DAVIS JUNIOR, MY BOY SKARY BOTTLE OF WHISKY A DAY DON THE ONLY GRAFFITI WRITER I DONT WANNA SEE CHOKE ON HIS OWN VOMIT AND ALL YOU FLY ASS LADIES HOLLA AT YOUR TIGHT PANTED RUFF RYDER LUSH ONER.

R.I.P MAHATMA GANDHI, SNAKE, TONE LOCC AND I RYDE FOR THE BIG MAN JESUS FUCK ALL YALL.
