Illustration: Hidden Colors 2

Since the movie is currently on for sale on DVD, I figure it's time I could unleash the illustration I did for Tariq Nasheed's documentary Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin. It was used during a segment focusing on the medical myths behind people of color. The illustration I was assigned to portray displayed the myth that slave owners, believing if they placed their feet on a black child that it would cure any form of rheumatism.

I went to the premiere of the film here in Detroit earlier in the month and it was damn near a sold out show. Very good information and history all throughout the movie so if you're someone who's especially interested in the history of people of African descent then you should cop it. The documentary is on sale right along with the first movie.

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!
