Playing off the slang phrase "It's all good," the twins wondered what kind of character Saul Gud would be like. For a while, a drug-addicted but chipper homeless man Corey had met on East Colfax was the top contender. But when the pair decided that Saul sounded biblical, it clicked instantly. Jesse Google-imaged "religious Jewish man," then vectorized one of the images that came up. Saul Gud, a Hasidic Jewish man with a strong nose, a snazzy hat and an impressive beard, was the first member of the Slang Gang.
When they returned to RMCAD the next semester, Corey signed up for a street art class. And the twins got serious about posting the Slang Gang around Denver-metro.
They began wheat-pasting posters as big as eight feet with images of the Slang Gang on buildings and making stickers. Soon, they caught the attention of the police, including the West Metro Drug Task Force at the request of the Wheat Ridge Police Department.
