Here is the artwork I designed for musician C-Po's latest tape M.O.T.Y (Mixtape Of The Year). The tape is available now through DatPiff.com! Also check out one of the unused art that was developed for the album as well in its different stages.
Here is the cover artwork for the newest single "The Nap" from BLAT! Pack emcee Jahshua Smith (formerly known as JYoung The General). Released in conjunction with the news of his newest tour dates with the Vans Warped Tour, "The Nap" tells the tale of women who sleep on men and their dreams. For the cover I was inspired by the work of Oily Moss and wanted to have that same vibe. The same vibe will be seen in the artwork for Jahshua's upcoming Final Season LP coming later this year.
This Saturday marks the return of the Art Of Hip-Hop, the monthly hip-hop concert series brought to the city of Flint by Identical Variant Clothing Co. and YaBoyLV.com. As always the event will be held at the Greater Flint Arts Council, hosted by Morale Music's Johnny Knott with DJ C-Nice on the turntables, and will feature performances from Anthony Stoner, Bamstarr, Nug, Taztro, Q-High, and B!Z.
Also I'll be selling art prints for $10 each at the event. Along with the prints, the first few people who buy one will get this IV Mascot head with the purchase. So if you're in the area make sure to come out and support!
The first preview of the "KOBK (Kill Or Be Killed)," a graphic novel written by C.J. Johnson and illustrated by myself that is due to come out later this summer. The plot details and specifics are being kept secret for now but stay tuned for more details to come. Also become a follower on the Tumblr page for the comic as well.
A couple weeks back I was given the great opportunity to talk about the progress of my artwork, The Revolutionary Times, and other subjects with Creative Impact Michigan, the ezine of ArtServe. ArtServe has focused on the creative and artistic side of Michigan for years and it was a honor that they'd even think of me. I'm always surprised and humbled when people even WANT to interview me, especially since I don't talk.
...and because I'm Batman.
Either way, check out the interview. Much appreciation to Mark Boyd and Simón Perazza for the chance to share my works!
