Hard Head Records

Earlier this year I was commissioned to do some Illustrations, 8 to be exact, for a friends CD booklet. I have heard the album and can say for sure that it is HOT! I have not however seen how they hooked up the Illustrations with the song copy and credits and all that. The album was recently released and I should be getting my copy soon. Until then, I've posted a few of the pieces in my gallery section, under the commercial heading. When I get the final version I will post them as well. If you want to check out what HardHead Records is doing you can visit them here.

Big Konizzle finshed

Sup peoples! I've been doing some drawing as of late. Most of it for stuff I can't show you yet, but you know I will as soon as I can. I did get a chance to finish this pic for my boy Kon so I'm posting it before I forget, lol. Some of the tones got lost in the scan, but you'll get the idea. I'm pretty tired now so I'm off to lay down. Holla.

Art Out Loud 5

So I got a last minute invite to attend the Art Out Loud event held this past Saturday at the Society of Illustrators. This event had special guest artist Klaus Janson (a great guy and former teacher of mine), Paolo Rivera and Mike Oeming. These guys spent more than 4 hours just doing their thing in front of about 50 aspiring and professional artists. IT WAS AMAZING!!! I was too interested in the "experience" to take more photos, but those should give you an idea of the setup and vibe.

I got to watch Klaus work on World War Hulk issue #3 pages. The John Romtia Jr. pencils were sick on their own, but watching Klaus ink them was a thing of beauty.

Standing over Oeming's shoulder and watching him bust out 3, yes 3 Powers pages, including a double page spread!

And the incredible digital tutorial Paolo gave was insane. It was like he was sculpting with color in photoshop. I've never seen anything like it. Paolo also showed us how he makes sculpts of his characters for ref when doing a story. Talk about some serious prep work!
