We need more Culture in “Pop” Art culture…

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.

With the RAW DC semi-finals show coming up, some great local businesses have been supporting and sponsoring the showcase. Mz Mahogany Chic is an independent fashion magazine out of Washington DC, they have been promoting the show, and recently did interviews with all of the finalists. You can check my interview, click the image above.

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.

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 .
