xXI Think They Call This Venting x Golden DreamsXx

With three weeks left before I take that epic step of graduation, a plethora of thoughts fell on my noggin - unwanted, depressing, stress inducing thoughts. So in order to calm the nerves down (and to have a piece ready for my senior studio critique), I decided to cook this up after listening to Drake's "Fear"  (which is where the "I think they call this venting" came from). 

This was an assignment from my Book Cover Illustration course that dealt with the aspect of dreams. In MY dreams, there's always that one girl that you can't get a hold of no matter of how long you traveled (in this case a bridge o' pillows). It's basically my "dreamsical" ("dream" and "whimsical")  take on the the cat and mouse game that is played when relationships are pursued.  Shout out to my girl Yessica for being a reference (nah, nudity wasn't actually involved in the process though). 

And for those wondering why there hasn't been any new Rev. Times strips, it's simply because of this - Bill Gates doesn't care about black artist (aka my computer crashed again). So keep a look out for new strips pretty soon. And also the "Get Smack! A Macbook Pro" foundation will be setting up shop. We accept all cash denotations (and no ladies, you can't denote your love. Love ain't gonna get me Steve Job'd up). 

Until the, I'm Ghost...face

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!
