Not an "art blog" I'm an artist and I happen to have a blog. All work under the this tag
Portfolio on Cargo Collective
Wildly approachable, hard working, and I talk a lot so drop me a line in my Ask Box or just stalk my page.
Open for commission and collaboration.
I haven’t been keeping up with my promises. I told you guys I would post and illustration a day until I found a job. I have been laxed these last 3-4 days. Not sure if that’s good or bad some of you. But for the few who actually enjoys these posts, here are two illustrations I have been picking at. Coy Apple is a mini portrait of Fiona Apple how I see her. Found the picture that spoked to me and I drew I with my little spin. I had a huge crush on her growing up, so it was fun sitting and doing that one.
Then there is Your King is a Queen and She’s Lost It, this one screams gender role. I mean the mushroom formation on her back resembled a small city, or kingdom and in many times it is perceived that the figure in charge or that is owner of the domain is male. But in this case she is female and drunk with the power she has realized that she can do what she will against the better judgement and advice of her council.
I found this great shot of Hattie Watson, a crush of mine, perusing the agglomeration of photos she has about the internet. In drawing it and trying something new with the color pencil in my sketchbook, I saw something more about the image. Her contemplative demeanor spurred me to think about the conservative mount against women. So I arrived at the name, And They Think! Like a personal jab to the man. Enjoy
Also, in other news, I am considering re-opening my little print shop. Get a few of these brown paper bad boys printed and sell them if anyone would be interested. Just an idea, but one i’m kicking around a little uneasy-like.
This was a while ago, something of an experiment really. I mean I wanted to do something with you know, poppy kinds of elements like the hearts and the kiss face. I mean she’s a beautiful subject, but I try to not let that being the only thing my work is based off of. I don’t know, I guess i’m just ranting really about an illustration I don’t really know what to do with. But my tumblr is about my work and I have been lax as of late with showcasing my work. So yeah, here’s an illustration and pointless little verbiage in accompaniment.
Truly in love with this image. This romp through digital painting was super strenuous given that I have also just started at this new job and I’m going in on starting my own mag so time is scarce. But I love the way it came out, hope you all enjoy. Thank you.
Spent a lot of time just thinking… in thinking, I returned to this and colored it…
I distance myself from things relating to “black,” You know, my race, culture, people?
I don’t know, I don’t want to be type casted as another black artist, but it happens anyway and I want to make light of whats good abut the people around me everyday. So I took a random image I found of a beautiful black woman and immortalized her in my style.
So that there is no assumptions to be made, I love black people, I love myself.
