xXSenior Project: Smack's Big Dreams Xx

So here it is. The Grande Projecto that had me with little to no sleep. A project fueled by energy shots, movies, and loud filth flarm filth music. People, I present to you, "Smack's Big Dreams."

(click on the thumbnails for a larger view)

A little bit of insight on this project, I based this on the idea of daydreaming. A symptom which I have been plagued with for far too long. So I decided to document my struggles through humorous art. I wanted to challenge myself with this one by having each daydream that the character (Smack, of course) enters into to be in a different art style. So as you see him enter into the Scrubs-inspired daydream, you can see the style differs a bit from what I normally do. Then during that last page, you definitely see a total change as it goes into the Frank Miller-esque illustration for the next daydream. And yes, that "To Be Continued..." means that I will still be working on this because I definitely want to finish this for my portfolio.

You know when something great happens to friends I gotta share it right? Well, a couple of friends finally got some official websites up and running so of course I gotta show love and share their artful artyness with the rest of the world. Go 'head and check them out because they're all extremely talented and cause me to level up on my jealous meter everyday...

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!
