xXSmack Peek | Scolla @ Ya Boy! x MOVE! For HaitiXx


You can get the word on the full design come April ( or whenever "the project" will be released)


Also, for anybody in the Detroit area, tomorrow is the day of the MOVE! For Haiti benefit concert featuring Cold Men Young, Street Justice, and a plethora of great acts performing a great cause. And yes, I designed the flyer. I was approach by 1/4 of Cold Men Young - Blaksmith - to cook up something simple and nice for the Jan. 30th show. So do your part is helping Haiti by attending the event. You might even see me there (if I get some gas by then). Click on the pic to head to the Facebook event page.

xXInspirations: Brent Rollins x Re:Defintion (Feb) x New SoundtrackXx

Smack-Inspirations | Jake One x Freeway - The Stimulus Package (Album Cover) (designed by Brent Rollins)
The name "Brent Rollins" has be synonymous with "design" and "urban culture." From designing the logo for Boyz N The Hood to his various work with Ego Trip, people know the mark of Rollins. So it doesn't come as a surprise how extremely dope the CD packaging that he design for Beard Club For Men affiliate Freeway and White Van enthusiast Jake One's upcoming joint project. Just from the video, you can tell that the level of detail is incredibly lavish - from the large bill graced with Jake's and Free's faces to the worn out wallet with credit cards included. No pun intended, this is a complete package. If the music doesn't make you buy the album in its physical form than hopefully the presentation will!

RE:Definition - Feb. 3 - East Lansing
Speaking of music, February is on its way so for East Lansing that means another RE:Definition show is in the works. This show headlined by its female crooner Yellokake. BLAT! Pack frontman JYoung the General hit me up with a unique idea to base the flier design of a jazz poster featuring one of Yellokake's favorite singers, Sarah Vaughn. So as an influence and a homage, the flier puts Yellokake in Vaughn's place. I wanted to make sure that I put my own spin to the design while at the same time using the poster as an inspiration. And here is the final result:
...and by the looks of it, you might be seeing more RE:Definition fliers to coming from me every month if the goal is presented to me. Who knows, true believer. Who knows...

xXWay Out Like Bruce Wayne's Mansion...Xx


Tomorrow the BLAT! Pack will be holding a going away party/concent for fellow BLAT! member (and iV sponsored artist) PHILTHY as he heads off to South Africa to do some work with the kids out there. And as an honoree BLAT! Pack member I designed the flyer for such an auspicious (yes "auspicious" I graduated from college) event. So if you happen to be in the area come through to Mac's Bar and enjoy the celebration. You might even see me there.

...no wait, I have stalkers. No. No you WON'T might see me there....stalkers. Go away. Now.

xXLadies Goin' Gaga For A ***** Tryin' To **** HimXx


"Dog, you gotta see him when he drive by
(Cock-eyed) Have all the Ladys goin GaGa"
- Slaughterhosue, "The One"

As you can see, my only knowledge of this one Lady Gaga comes from lines from Clipse and Slaughterhouse songs, and Cudi, Com, and 'Ye pokin' chicks faces. But when a cute girl asks you to draw said celebrity you can't really say no to the cute girl.

Remember that lesson, kids. Say yes to the cute girls. Like Floetry.
