We are very sad here at ILG after receiving the news of the passing of Oil aka Crude Oil aka Bernie Perez. I had the pleasure of spending a week in Berlin with Oil a few years ago and I will always remember his crazy spirit and remarkable talent. Oil was behind much of the graphics and handstyles used at 12oz Prophet and the AKA projects, member of COD and blessed with a handstyle second to none. Ironicly the last entries on his blog deals with other writers passing away.
Rest In Peace Oil!
