R.i.p. Bogart Bello
Back in about 1991 or 92 i had the pleasure of meeting a good friend.His name IS Bogart.Then a couple of years later I met him again.I used to have a pad in Bell Gardens and my boy who does tats (crazy Manuel) was bout to ink this guy up when i walked into the house and whata know it was Bogie.We chopped it up lil and found out we knew alot of the same people.As the years went on we kept in touch and ran into eachother alot.He was one of those humble people that you would see @ the oddest and hotspots sometimes even solo.I'd be like what up Bogie who you here's with and he'd be like "solo kid"!If you knew i'm you could picture him say'n that!Last summer i painted sum vans for him and he loved them and always gave me props on my art!so that day i came and gave him his shoes he was like"kid whatcha goin do"?I was like nothing why he said lets head to the Standard to hang on the roof bar.Luckly i had my camera with me.Bogart will be missed!!
