My (late) contribution to the lore that is 4/20. The piece is called “Faded.” More like a challenge met, I just enjoyed drawing it because unusual faces are my shiz, and in case you have not noticed, I’m obsessed with body mods. So viola, I’m thinking of just giving this one away. Now that I’m done it’ll just hang around my office desk taking up space.

This is the second of the two pieces i have done for this series and I feel like this is more of where I would like it to be. I like how little there is to combat with visually. I like that the colors in the face are bolder than everything else. I enjoy how long it takes me to do something that feels so simple. But with time becoming more of a problem than a plus, i have got to get to visualizing the last 7 of these pieces. This is going to be an interesting month.

I am sorry guys. I am apologizing because I took on the “30 Day Art Challenge” 42 days before a group show I am doing. So the work for the show is taking precedence over the challenge. Good news though, i am giving you guys looks at the work i am doing for the show. I am tackling a quick series of digital illustrations of beautifully hooded androgynous figures. Something out of dreams hence the series name. This is my first run, more like a feeling out illustration. I am not convinced by this one but being that it is my first attempt, i like the initial look. i am doing some new things with these pieces so bare with me.
In the meantime, I enjoy the love you guys. I mean my piece I did in collaboration with Feline has gotten so many notes, it’s beyond wonderful and I have no other option but to gush a little and just be grateful. That kind of love is what keeps me going, especially during times when I truly feel talentless. I love you guys, thank you.

30 Day Art Challenge // Day 2 Someone You Like (Celebrity)
Denise Huxtable
I chose Denise because of who she was. She was fictional, but she was incredible. She was approachable, caring, aspiring, she dreamed big, and lived fairly by day. She was beautiful and she was smart, but she was flawed and made mistakes. I guess life is easier to learn from when your mother and father are Claire and Cliff. Regardless she is the barometer for the women I take to and this point in my life, I think I have got the right one.

This illustration can be seen accompanying an article in TAC Magazine issue 2. A 3 hour piece that I am kind of proud of. Did something with the lighting I don’t normally do. Ventured out of my comfort zone. The title is a play on the title to Trinidad James, All Gold Everything.

Figured why should the Tumblr community settle for an Instagram shot…

And They Think!

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.

When does Beyonce NOT look like Beyonce? When I draw her. In my defense, in person, it does, but given the angle. Well regardless, it’s the illustration of the day. One illustration a day until I get a new job. So yeah, if you like my work, hope I never get a job. If you don’t, pray that I do.

I thought, why not? She had a tint to her skin in the cartoon, so i went ahead and re-imagined her image. I mean granted,  broke some rules here. I made her a Brazilian youth that was brought up in poverty to learn of her talents. But, the precocious spirit is still there… maybe… more like replaced with an air of idealistic rebellion and a hint of latent drug abuse. I don’t know guys, I like her.

Still on my brown paper kick, I love this stuff. I mean so far I have kept all my illustrations on this parchment, ethnically viable. but expect to see quite a few of theses kinds of illustrations. Just having fun now.
