What’s a composition notebook? We have all probably owned one for one reason or another. They’ve been around for years, well-known for having wide-ruled pages and black and white covers. Every notebook contains something different inside based on its owner. I have several stored in drawers around my house, ironically I bought a new one just to write this story. My notebooks are used to document my random thoughts, ideas and goal lists. For me these things have meaning, but to an outsider thumbing through my pages, my notebook is probably useless and hard to understand.
Somewhere roaming the streets of Atlanta you can find Rich Montgomery, commonly known as FRKO, a name taken from shortening his other nickname, Freako Rico, talking to everyone and experiencing life in a way that suits his specific style. He’s probably riding a BMX bike and carrying around a Four Loco. You would never know that he was an accomplished and classically trained artist from first glance, but that is exactly what he is, although his art isn’t necessarily what someone would describe as “classic.”
