xXThe Somerset CollectionXx

Nah, no art on my part in this post. But since I'm WIDE AWAKE thanks to an energy shot I needed to drive back from Michigan State ALLLLL the way back to Detroit late at night I decided I should hit y'all up on some art I highly advise you to take a look at...

Like the Detroit Zoo competition earlier, Somerset Mall (located in Troy, MI) held a competition to the Illustration department at CCS to design a special collectors shopping bag. Personally I wanted to get in on this project bad but I got mixed up too much with the zoo project, internship searching, and working on new Revolutionary Times AND Smack (1/2) Chronicles strips (the new chibi-ized version that's coming soon. Hence the "1/2"). So I left that up to the rest of my fellow art fiends to handle and yeah, they made it happen in a big way. Y'all should really check out these designs because they're beyond dope. Here are a few that already posted theirs up on their respective blogs...

All dope, I know right? 

Anyways, I'm about to go work off this atomic bomb of energy I currently have, but before I do - shouts out to the Alpha Phi Alpha's for putting Identical Variant in their fashion show earlier tonight (Friday). Aside from a rough ending *coughcoughidiotscough* it was highly successful. Just seeing a shirt I designed being worn by such beautiful ladies in front of huge crowd made that joint an epic win for the night. That and that after party...that had a rough middle *coughcoughmoreidiotsscoughcough*. I definitely enjoyed myself and hope to travel back up there sometime before the semester ends. 

Yeah, so that's about all I have to say. Watch out this weekend for some new comics (I hope). I'm Ghost...face

EDIT: Go over the Revolutionary Times blog to check out my first edition of the "Revolutionary Artsts" series, the first about The Booondocks character designer and comic artist LeSean Thomas.

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!
