A Simple letter piece outline, SELF FYC, done in Illustrator in 1998. Could be early 1999 though. Colored in Photoshop shortly thereafter and saved at a ridiculously small file size, probably so I could upload it to tagpage.com, which had a Bulletin Board, the Graffiti Wall, you could post images to.
And here he is, Young Wooly. Parents looking a little sheepish. A silkscreen print at about 23″ by 8.5″ From 2005.
Throw your hands in the air, if you’re a true player. From the lyrics of the Notorious BIG, or the rapper I’ll always remember as Biggie Smalls, a line from Big Poppa. Or rather, a late night meal at a diner, between the club and the hotel.
Jasmine Flavors on the Wild Style Vine. 3 panel composition. Pop Fresh, y’all.
For Roz, my “tender oozing blossom”. Cherry blossoms for you, and some cherry flavored candy letters.
I did the initial outline for this joint in 2006, and then did the effects in it and the coloring sometime early 2007. I put this up as a poster in Blak’s room when we did the formatmag.com desktop.
C.D. Ridenhour. Popular author and poet. Award winning novels include Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, Louder than a Bomb, and Night of the Living Baseheads.
The final tshirt, incorporating the studio’s logo and a rugged, worn texture.
Concept sketches for a vinyl toy. Submitted to a company wth MEGA BASS!!
Did this with Madtwiinz. They covered the characters, Gorospe modeled the 3D, I did the lighting, texturing and compositing of the shot. Except the radio, which is an image processed photo element. Red monochrome was the consensus on this Blokhedz themed piece. Essentially this is Nas lamping with G-Pak, in 1980′s throwback gear. Fressssh.
This is what is happening in the margins. Between the piece and the background is the cloud. And in the cloud, there is LIFE!
