Silent Beauty…

The other day I posted a set of drawings to Instagram, and I almost didn’t post them because I couldn’t get the entire drawing(s) in the frame. I’ve seen large format work posted, so maybe I’m behind on Instagram’s features, but either way, here they are in their entirety. Drawn on 12″x18″ brown recycled paper with ink brush pens, acrylic paint markers, and watercolors.

So, I’ve been sitting on this piece for a while and have re-worked it more than a couple of times now. You can see one of my earliest versions here. I enjoy this version much more. It’s more subtle, yet more beautiful, I kept wanting to add more elements to make it more colorful, give you more to look at… but then it was just becoming a jumbling mess of colors and designs. This is why I enjoy Photoshop, being able to push and pull digitally, but then again, sometimes things never seem to be finished…

I’ve tried writing something profound about what’s happening to our young brothers and sisters, but I can’t seem to ARTiculate the right words to express the levels of emotions that I feel for the families and communities this keeps happening in. Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo, John Bell, John Crawford, Ezell Ford; just too name a few, we can not allow these men to be forgotten, and that is exactly what the media and the powers that be want, for us to forget.

Well, we are half way through January, and I’m finally getting to my first post of the new year! Well Happy 2014, and here we go! I’ve been living in DC – well Maryland actually – for the past year, and well I am beginning to really enjoy it. I’ve made some great connections, my art is blossoming, and I’m just ready to make a name for myself. With that all being said, one of the connections I’ve made has blessed me with some great little illustration gigs, which I have really been enjoying. This piece is for a Hip-Hop/Spoken Word cypher happening later this month in DC.

The Self Portrait… it has become one of the most annoying epidemics of the world-wide web. Don’t get me wrong, I like looking, yeah I think you’re cute, but seriously how many pictures of yourself do you really need to have on your profile pages? ¬†Really how many pics can you take in the bathroom mirror? It’s made us narcissistic to a nauseating point… Anyway, enough ranting and trolling from me, just enjoy the work.
