Not an "art blog" I'm an artist and I happen to have a blog.
All work under the this tag 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’m impartial to full nudity in my work. I usually like to convey the message with modesty. But everything about her in her natural state needed to be portrayed almost exactly to convey what I saw in seeing her like this in the reference.
Also, I have come to the realization that I love to draw tank girl tattoos. I’ve loved tank girl since I was young and now she’s the go to character when I want a small addition with attitude. Altogether this is one of my favorites I’ve made and that’s saying a lot because I’m really hard on my stuff.
P.S. The reference was shot by Ibra Ake, awesome photographer. Been a fan for a while and when I asked if I could used one of his works he said yeah. So, much love for that.
The name is inspired from a TV on The Radio song entitled, Blind. I really wanted to make her seems menacing in a way. As I said before, she reminds me of Eli from Let The Right One In. Boys would fall for her, but love only lasted as long as the boys proved useful to her. I mean they would grow older and die and she would have to find another.
I see that for her (my girl). Her love is deep and real, but in a way, out of necessity. Can you hate that?
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.
I don’t like this piece… but wanted to show my friends before I scrapped it #art #personal #friends #girl #smile #digital #paint #photoshop #ethnic #dislike #wip #blend #model #girl #defcise #eh #whatever (Taken with Instagram)
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.
