They say the best art comes from when you're in pain, right?

[UPDATE: 09/11/15] 

Yesterday was Suicide Prevention Day. I’m never open about my depression, only a few really know I deal with it, but let it be a sign there are people out there who need a shoulder to lean on even if they mask it with creativity and jokes. The real title of this was “Blue Depression” and it was made on a night that went south on me mentally. But instead of going deeper into the dark place I chose to let it out with my art. Something I wish I could’ve done the other times my mind went to those dark places.

If you know anyone who’s dealing with depression, stick by them. This shit isn’t something that just goes away with pills or anything like that. Sure they help suppress it but it’s still something that sticks to you. Don’t give up on them. Let them know they have a place on this earth even if it doesn’t seem that way to them. Stand by them because the last thing someone wants to feel is alone, especially dealing with something like this. That’s honestly how I’ve made it this far. The hope of seeing my friends live out great lives, rising above life threatening obstacles, and all that shows how strong people really can be. That’s the kind of strength I hold on to everyday.

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!
