Champions Series - "Phenomenal"


Continuing with my series of illustrations of current champions in WWE, after last Sunday's Backlash PPV I felt it was only right that this one had to happen. I was introduced to this man in the early days of TNA (when it was NWA-TNA) alongside the likes of Low Ki, Christopher Daniels, and Amazing Red. So you would have to understand my excitement when he debuted in WWE earlier this year at the Royal Rumble, only to win its top championship a couple of months later. So of course the next edition of my "Champions" series had to be the Phenomenal AJ Styles

We live in a time where Kevin Steen, AJ Styles, and Shinsuke Nakamura (foreshadow) are the top champions in World Wrestling Entertainment (yes, NXT counts). What a time to be alive.

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!
