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.

#SMACKSundays - SC 44

It's been too long since I made a Smack Chronicles strip. TOO LONG! But to keep up with the "Grumpy Young Smack" mantra and since yesterday was Sweetest Day out here in the midwest, I decided #SMACKSundays was the right time for Smack to ride on again. So I present the first Smack Chronicles since February 14th...

Like A BLAT!stone Cowboy...

Last time you saw a post title with the words "BLAT!" in it, you got a very "I Just Do The African Face" teaser.  But now I'm giving you a twofer (wow, that's actually a word) in the BLAT! Pack department:
 The announcement of the tape first released on last night at 10:15 (October 15th being the 44th Anniversary of the founding of the Black Panthers), JYoung The General let the world know that the sequel to his tape Black History Year (cover also made by me) would be released on Dec. 5th (which is also in celebration of the beginning of the Montgomery Bus Boycott). The tracklisting has yet to be released but I know for a FACT of one track that has some powerhouse features on it. And that I might be responsible for that cover art as well. In all due time, true believers. In all due time...
 Also in the BLAT! art gallery, here's the artwork for newest BLAT! Pack inductee Yung Classix's beat tape TEKnologic 3: Introduction 2 @BLATPack! due to be out soon...

Young Miz - Video Vixxxen

So a while back, thanks to the word of mouth from homie Derrick Turner, I was commissioned to do some work for Cleveland born emcee Young Miz's single "Video Vixxxen" off his upcoming debut project The Layover. The project included the artwork for the single's cover and designs for the shirts that would be worn by the very models that the characters were based off of. Also I made Vol. 15 of the SpeedComics to cover some of the process. Check it out!



Young Miz's debut album The Layover is set for departure on October 19th.
