xXOut Here Grindin'Xx

*Pulls up iTunes, selects "Out Here Grindin'" by DJ Khaled, puts on repeat*(1)
I don't care what nobody say, I'ma be me (be me)
Stay hood, stay raised on the streets (cause I'm out here grindin')
Niggas talk about greatness whenever they speak about me
(Cause I'm out here grindin')

Well except for being "in the streets" that's how I've been (kinda) feeling. Ha! And you thought I was just lounging around in boxers watching reruns of Law & Order SVU and Monk all day(2). NOPE! NOPE! Double HA!

Here's the latest of my universal goal of reaching greatness to the point when I can finally start pissing excellence. Joshua Thompson III commissioned me to polish up the logo for the clothing line he's started called Grade A. At first I had done this completely by hand but afterwards I wanted to challenge myself and completely redo my drawing in Illustrator (thanks to inspiration from my father. Dude's a genius I tell you). Here's the result...

Also for the line, he wanted to design two mascots that showcase the line's idea of pride and being ahead of its class...

And I'm definitely feeling how everything turned out. This week is gonna be a busy for one me. Just got commissioned to do two character pieces for a friend of a friend, doing something for Joanna Dam and her TrendSettaz line, AND I still got some more "Revolutionary Times" joints to finish.

I just know damn well between this week and the next there finally better be some gas in my car from all this lol.

- If you haven't, you'd better go get you an Identical Variant. logo shirt while they still last. The sizes left range from SM to 3XL (the 2XL and 3XLs are in VERY limited supply). Head over the Facebook group to learn how to get one. The next shirts are coming soon! (and they have my design on it!)

And that's about it. As always I'm Ghost...face.

(1) - And that will be the ONLY time I do that willingly. And this is the version with Wayne. No Jeezy.
(2) - Don't get it twisted. Those are some good ass shows...

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.

Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
