Let’s start a band. I got our logo made up, even got the first album cover ready. DISASTER! sounds like a classic hardcore punk skate rock band.

Electricity = Juice. Juice = 1992 movie starring Tupac Shakur (and others of course). Tupac = Thug Life. Thug life, sounds like long life, but actually the opposite. So Juice batteries are thug life batteries. Supercharged and temporary.
There should be more Jamaican gangster movies in the world. I got a title for one – Badman a Boss. This is a little in-story movie idea for Blokhedz. I made up a bunch of magazine names, movies, products, etc, for the fictional Empire City, home to Blokhedz. The image used in Blak’s bedroom is the initial sketch for this character done sometime in 2007. I spent a few hours today cleaning it up and making it fresh for 09.

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 jacket for a book in Blak’s library. Many of the books in Blak’s room are hip-hop lyric and song title visualizations, takeoffs and parodies. Black Steel in the hour of chaos is a perfect title and the lyrics are epic, no question. If you remember the video, you know it’s like a movie already. Real hip-hop.
The Goose is loose and he’s poppin off in all directions, and that spells trouble for sucker ducks. The mythical mascot of Empire City’s number one bubble gum, son. Bubble Goose.
What’s poppin cat? Today’s image is the Bubble Goose bubble gum logo. An Empire City classic for generations, this is the number one bubble gum, Dun.

This is a small selection of the backgrounds I created in 2007 for the Blokhedz animation test. The 3d models were provided by Red Rover Studios, and I took over from there. I did the layout, and matched the finished 2D character animation in the 2:30 music video, used Cinema4D’s camera projection tools alongside UV texturing. Color and lighting, rendering all done in Cinema4D.
