The Battle Of Art & Sol

Last Saturday I had to chance to take part in my first ever art battle. The competition, called The Battle Of Art & Sol, was held in downtown Saginaw and featured 12 other awesome artists all competing for the prize of $500. Thanks to my friend Jared, who ran the event, I was able to do it digitally. That also meant hauling a big ass flat screen to the outside and praying my computer didn't break down on me. 

I mean, it did (Thanks Apple). A lot. But I managed. 

Unfortunately not enough to get the top prize but congrats to Becca Brown for winning the first prize and Jose Garcia for winning People's Choice. Will I do another art battle? Maybe. If I do I think I'd might want to try painting, or the Dave Chow method of using the power of the Sharpie on a canvas. But overall it was a great experience and I'm glad I had a chance to be a part of it.

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!
