My brothers in BLAT! James Gardin and Jahshua Smith link back up to drop this anthem calling for nothing but black excellence and aptly so for Black History Month. Cover designed by myself.
February is considered J Dilla Month in celebration of the work and excellence of Detroit producer/emcee James "J Dilla" Yancey who passed away in 2006. If you're no stranger to my work then you've obviously see me pay tribute to him many times. Since I'm starting to get into experimenting and building up my skill with watercolor I tested it out in another tribute. This time I scanned the original and messed around with digitally in Photoshop.
I've been wanting to try my hand at getting away from digital for a little bit and into actual watercolor painting. I was inspired by frequently seeing the works of Louie Chin and how he infuses watercolor and line art. And it also serves as a testing of an idea I have if I were to do a third RED Book as well. Here are some of the ones I've done so far.

I was finally able to get my copy of the “Artists Against Police Brutality” anthology book that I had the great opportunity of being a part of. I can’t thank John Jennings enough for giving me the chance to be a part of something important. You can still buy the book yourself on the Amazon right now.
After working with them on their Black Angus web series, John Holland of the comedy group Green Bench TV commissioned me to design a new logo for them. The process went through a couple different directions, including incorporating elements from their past logos, but in the end they went with something a bit more direct and font based.
