  • Francis is an amazing artist but so down to earth at the same time. You can really tell he’s this good from hard work. He did some hip hop portraits a few years back that are so sick(Nas, Big Pun and some others)

  • Love his stuff, so relaxed and messy-delicious.
    I was trying to pick a favorite, but it’s all of them.
