A SMACK! Halloween Series - BTTF x Ghostbusters

If you've been keeping score, you'd notice there wasn't any posts up for "SMACK! Sundays." Yeeeah, Sunday was a weird day for me as was the day after. An artistically life funk if you will. Well late at night I decided to do something about it. I drove to the nearest gas station, copped TWO Starbucks Doubleshots and was convinced that I'd make something artistic by Tuesday morning.

And then, I remember this Sunday was Halloween. And I remembered I don't have the funds or the resources to actually have a costume. And then...the art button on my brain clicked.

So all this week til Halloween, I will be doing a piece a day depicting myself dressed as various selections from movies. And what better way to start off by with two of my favorite movies: Back To The Future and Ghostbusters.
"Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?"
“Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES”!”

I decided to do a technique I've hardly ever done before (except a drunken night in college), where I sketched out everything in Sharpie pen and then did a light ink wash over some areas. And then of course the usual Smack magic of putting in Photoshop and going to town.

Oh and more for your viewing pleasures, here's a SMACK! SpeedComic featuring the process behind the Ghostbusters piece...

And now...The Couch K.O.

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!
