xXRT Presents 50 Ways Of Being A Revolutionary - Day 001Xx


So a while ago, during a class I talked with fellow artist Chris Houghton while he was making mini zines to promote his Reed Gunther series. He told me how he did and then said (in the wholesome Chris Houghton way) "Hey man, you should do these for your comic." I nodded and proceeded to say "Why yes Chris Houghton, I SHOULD!"

So Brandon and I started cooking up a sort of "guide" to be a revolutionary for a simple four page mini zine. But during that brainstorming, I was also following comic artist Skottie Young as he was starting his daily sketches series "The Adventures of Benard The World Destroyer" and it hie me - why can't we do that for this project? Besides we started coming up with so many that it couldn't fit one pamphlet. So that's what brings us here. Here's the rundown for those people who love to read rundowns...

50 days, 50 ways and tips on being a revolutionary or just all in all being a good person in this world. 50 days, 50 simple black and white sketches cooked up by me.

And what better way to start off by than something Jay-Z inspired.
Way #01 - Wear All Black Everyday (even on Christmas)

Unfortunately Pepsi readers, I won't be putting ALL of the ways on this blog, but just on some days. Yeah, you're gonna have to head over to the Revolutionary Times blog to catch the full epicness of what we're trying for.

Sigh...the things I do to keep my artitic mind busy.

So the chill quartet of Cold Men Young (Mic Write, Blaksmith, Kopelli, Phenom) decided to "leak" the songs that have been on heavy rotation into one nice neat package for the CMY followers and new recruits alike. And because they're apart of the iV family, when they asked me to whip up something for the cover I of course obliged. So here's the complete package available for download.

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
