xX1Word - A J Dilla Tribute x The Hallway ShowXx

As you know, I'm all about showing support to my friends. Well here are two projects that I think everyone should take a look at...

xX1Word | Dilla by Patrick DalyXx

My boy Patrick Daly, photographer extraordinaire, has been putting together this book for start of this whole year. Using his talents, he put together a collection of polaroids signed by various musicians, producers, friends, and family of late great Detroit producer/emcee J. Dilla. Now y'all know how I feel about Dilla's music so you know this already has the Smack stamp of approval. It's on sale now so head over to http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/680351 and show the homie Pat some support.

And more of Pat's work head over to his website - http://www.patrickdalyphoto.com/

xXThe Hallway Show by Nikki DeSautelle x Matt DeBeulXx

Over the last two semesters, the Illustration hall of CCS decided to do this various mini shows, a collection of sketchbook art done by the students based on different subjects and topics ranging from Michael Moore to Lucielle Ball to Lil' Wayne. Nikki and Matt (now CCS Alumni lol) decided to put it all together into one neat package and put it out there in book form.

Here's a list of just some of the contributing artists in the book:
Anthony Baez
Chris Barr
Matt DeBuel
Nikki DeSautelle
Wesley Eggebracht
Maria Filar
Andy Gabrysiak
Ben Jose Harris
Kassandra Heller
Chris Hougton
Sarah Ihrke
Chelsea Kirchoff
Matt Leese
Sean Mack (Hey that's me!)
Randall Pointer
Mario Moore
Rachael Olek
...and many more!

So head over to the Lulu page and go cop yourself a copy. It's also available for free download but what's better than the actual physical book in your hands?

With that I'm Ghost...face

xXForce Fresh ProperXx


A month ago well known big man blogger Cliff Skighwalker had a call to all artist to design up a new banner for his blog and this is what I put into the pot of talent. Sure it ain't get picked up first but you might see it on there sooner or later so keep an eye out on that man's blog.

Now only if I knew what was happening with that Burn Rubber design...

xXMajor Way Ent x Animation Dope FiendXx

What's good, people? I know it's been a while but the semester's over, I'm looking for work, and getting sick in the process. Great way to start the summer right? But don't get it twisted, still working on some new Revolutionary Times while Brandon cooks up more strips, and maybe possibly one or three Smack Chronicles joints in between. Also the freelancing game is still going, possible shirt designs for the BLAT! Pack (JYoung the General and P.H.I.L.T.H.Y). a possible comic gig (more on that later if it works out), oh and I'm even getting into the website designing game. Don't worry tho, Britt, I ain't taking your job.

Speaking of freelancing, let me go ahead and drop my recent job down since it's all paid for. Minar Douse, head of Major Way Entertainment, contacted me a while ago to redesign and clean up their current logo. He also wanted me to design a simple logo for a side project that they're concocting over there entitled "Pusherman."


So more freelancing jobs on the way but doesn't mean I ain't got time for any more on my plate. If you're looking for any sequential work, character design, concept art, album cover, poster/flyer, or logo design feel free to contact me. My contact info can be found on the right side of the page.

xAnimation Dope Fiend Hourx
As to prepare myself for my first animation for my last semester I've been well emerged in animation these days. Here's some of the things that have keep me induced in the ani-drug.




And that's about it for the second. As always, I'm Ghost...face

xXI'm Still Fly, I'm Sky High..."Xx

So I'm in the process of heading back home for the summer break with no internet nor cable to soothe the slow days. Although through some hi-jacked netz I did come across the video for Canada emcee Page's single "I'm Still Fly" featuring fellow mountie Drake. To be honest, I never actually heard the actual song before. I was only introduced to this by the freestyle Drake had put out quite some time ago. But it's a dope song.

You know what's even doper though? That dope animated intro!

I must learn how to animate one of these days!

While I'm at it, here's the Drake freestyle as well...


With that, I gets back to packing. I'm Ghost...face
