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.

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.

Colorfully Outspoken…

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.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang…

BANG

Sometimes things just come together nicely, I’ve always been a fan of design but never really had the patience working on the computer like I do now. I want to be a working professional artist, but I’ve always felt like I had A.D.D when it came to my work. I get fixated on a subject and do as much of that subject as possible, and then once I get bored, or something else grabs my interest I move on. I tend to start a lot of project, and never really finish them. Something that has taken me a while to get over, and I still do it from time to time. But, I have gotten better about finishing thing though nowadays. So.. BANG BANG on to the next…

I have been meaning to post this one a few weeks ago, but the family and I made the move down to Maryland from NYC, so with packing and moving two kids, there was quite a bit to get done. Well, we are here now, in Maryland settling in nicely, making the switch from city rats to ‘burbanites .

4 Way Calling…

PhoneSs2

While taking a slight break from my work, to watch the kids full time, while my wife is out of town for a week on business, I played around with some of my older works. I had done enough works with girls and phones (generic looking iPhones mostly), and the four panel structure has been friendly to me lately. So while I had a moment between naps, which was hard to come by with a 4 year-old and a 7 month old, but was able to make this 4 way long distance call!
