Hey folks! I hope everyone is doing well. I just wrapped up the Illustration Academy and I'm gearing up for my senior year here at Ringling. Here are a few of my recent projects:
I hope you enjoy and I always digg some juicy crits! I also have a bunch of sketches and what not in the sketchbook section.....
P.S. I leave for Comic Con in 3 hours so I hope to see you guys there. Unfortunately I don't have a booth but I'll be the pale skinny guy with a peach fuzz beard and a cap barely sitting on my head....hahaha.
all the best!!
I did this piece in anticipation of Nas' new album "Untitled." Those into hip hop are sure to know the original name of the album. Anyways I did this after being inspired by the album and his message of equality. I did a whole drawn out explanation/rant about it on my blog. Gouache on illustration board.
I did this one for the May issue of Vibe magazine. It deals with how American Idols are being left behind compared to the original winners. Mixed Media.
This was my submission for the Totoro Forest Project. I did two pieces but this was the more successful. For some reason only the one piece appears on the site. They should fix that and include this piece too. Ink and gouache on paper.
I did this piece at the Academy. It is a portrait of the white slave from "Puddnhead Wilson" by Mark Twain. I'm thinking that the digital chain is not working...? Oil on canvas.
The Russian magazine Moloko+ asked me to do their cover a few months back. They simply wanted me to depict summer. This was the result. Ink, gouache, and digital.
This was my submission for round 2 of the Last Man Standing. I actually went back into it after the competition and tweaked it. Oil on board.
This is a self promotion piece. I did this last semester. The assignment was to do a billboard. I did one for New Era hats. Oil on board.
