Connected on the streets of New York City in the early 2000’s, artist Neckface met artist Craig Costello, aka KR through their common interest in graffiti, art, friends and travels. Neckface has been using Costello’s brand of paint markers (Krink) throughout his career and when the opportunity came for Stance to merge them both into a project, the opportunity was organic. Stance is proud to debut its collection with art supplies company KRINK and Stance punk and poet, Nasty Neckface on a limited edition collection of artist goods.
The collection features a 150 page Krink Sketchbook made of 100gsm, acid-free Super Smooth Paper, A4, 8.3 x 11.7 inches (21 x 29.7 cm). The book is a Hardcover with rounded corners, and features Nasty Neck’s “Have a heart” illustration on both sides. The collection also features a co-branded Krink Carpenter Pencil, printed on both sides, with a classic red pencil with red lead.

Neckface was born in 1984 in Stockton, California. In addition to being a graffiti artist, he is also an avid skateboarder. He dropped out of art school in 2004 to pursue these two passions independently. His work is recognized for its darkly humorous, naïve-drawing style, which often depicts ultra violent scenes of monsters and humans. Not only is Neckface a graffiti artist, he has also had a number of gallery shows and regularly hosts a Halloween Haunted House along with his family. He has collaborated with the likes of Baker Skateboards, Vans, Nike and Thrasher and has a number of collections with Stance.
