Smack's Jones For Lovely Art (And Women)

So I dropped the artwork for this a while ago but the event itself happened over the weekend (June 26th) and of course the lovely Jaja Morgan wanted me to be there and I couldn't say "no" (she wouldn't let me).

Located at the newly refurbished 4731 Gallery, Love, Detroit is just as the words portray - A love for all things Detroit especially when it comes its artistic virtues...
And the event itself showcased some great talent plastered all over the walls.

Photography by Kendre Daniels. I ain't even know she had this talent. Sneaky as hell...
...and of course, some of my own pieces (no gloating). Along with the art, the poetry was amazing. The award winning Detroit Slam Team (including Cold Men Young spitta Mic Write) showed the crowd exactly why they're great at what they do. Prior to it starting I had took a stroll to another gallery with producer/photographer Charlie Graham as he chopped it up with other artists and basically took to the scenery all for a documentary he's putting together. Overall it was good day to be an artist. Great creative people to vibe off from and I'm gonna look forward to any future shows Jaja wants to put on.
...and of course beautiful women hold up my art (while I look somewhat confused at what's going on). *Tiger Fist Pump*

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!
