I was commissioned to do a Don King Troll portrait for Rock Smith Tokyo. This was a test project to see how I work, etc. It was approved, so this should be on T-shirts in the Fall. I wanted to document how I work so I took pictures of my progress. I drew the Head and hair. Then I drew the body. Scanned them in my computer and connected them in Photoshop. I was told to add money in his hands, so I redrew the hands after I took these pictures. In Photoshop I re sized the drawing, printed it out to the size I wanted to paint it at, transferred the image on the Watercolor paper, then began to paint. I was told work smarter, not harder. Peace to Eric for the hook up.

Walking on Lincoln Road in Miami, My girlfriend and I walked inside this studio and checked out some nice art from various artists. The studio is called Art Center/ South Florida. We went on a Sunday afternoon, so most of the studios was locked. I would have loved to walked in the actual studios and seen the work closer, but I couldn't. I took pictures, which I probably wasnt supposed to, but I couldn't resist. Here are some of the artists work that stood out to me while inside. http://www.artcentersf.org/index.php
Another artist was David Leroi. He does Great work! Here are some large prints of some panels of Marvel Comic books. I would love to have one in my house, or Game room. To check out more from David Leroi, click here (PRINTS SECTION TO FIND MARVEL WORK). http://davidleroi.com/

Here are a few pictures from last nights Art Loop 3 at Urban Avenue. The Art Loop featured the work of Myself, and Crae Washington. I should have taken more pictures, but I was doing a lot of talking with the camera in my pocket for most of the time. But these are some of the pictures I did take when the camera was out. Special Shout out to BJ and owner of Urban Avenue, Crae Washington, Andre Wright and Andre Robinson. All the people promoting this, Urban Avenue, Color of Life, Grown Man Entatainment, Star and Drama, Bloc Suite, and Misguided Dreamers Under the Influence. The show was a success! Special, Special shout out for EVERYONE who took time out to stop in and check out the artwork! Thank you for supporting the arts! Thank you all!
I finally had a chance to get my GZA/GENIUS concert poster I created with, http://beardedlady.net/ framed. (I did the Art work, he did the Type) This is the VERY LAST one I have! I started off with 30 copies. Then I started out giving them away to close family and friends. So if you have one of these, you are really cool with me! LOL. So with this being the LAST one I have, this one is staying with me.
