This is a piece inspired by police brutality in our inner city neighborhoods as well as the murders of Oscar Grant, Sean Bell and the countless other youths who died at the hands of police officers. Awareness is key… action is key also. Let’s not wait until it’s your own families that are affected before getting involved.
“Dirty Glove” is not your average cleaner… It’s your ABOVE average multi-purpose cleaner. Coming from the state of Michigan, Dirty Glove is your new “Green Cleaner” with the tagline… “Cleaning You Can Live With”. This was a logo project that began as just a logo and is now becoming a full Corporate Identity project. Again this client knew what she wanted but didn’t really know how to explain it. HAAA! This is where a GREAT Graphic Designer puts on the Consultation hat(Which is another Service to be paid for) and help her define what the client wants and needs. Simple enough right? HAAAA!
After our likkle pow-wow, it was my time to experiment. She wanted it to symbolize Michigan(hense: Dirty Glove) but at the same time deliver an abstract modern look. Very simple yet different from all the other green products. This was the route I went and surprisingly, hit on the first try! HAAAA! Take a look:
After the success of the Logo, it was then time to make the label fro the product. I must say, this took a looooooong time. Not to design but because of the troubles we were going through with different printers… layout changed multiple times. So after a month or so, we arrived at this layout. And it works! Client satisfied and it meets all printing points. Be on the look out for it. They should arrive in Kroger stores sometime mid-summer. What you think?
“Blackpeach” is the title of a nNEW Atlanta Magazine that you should be on the look out for. I had the honor of designing the logo. Although it appears simple, a lot of work went into this logo. The good thing about it was that my client knew what he wanted. So just a likkle experimentation was done. As you can see, most of the work went into the peach. I wanted a still life look so it’s very realistic. I really wanted the Black portion to hit though. It worked too! A satisfied client is the best. Especially if they want more work done. HAAAA! What you all think about it?
“Raise It Up” is one of my newest clients that are based here in Atlanta, GA. Good, good peoples. Straight up. Since i meet them, they have been a constant support and what they started is Community Crowdfunding. Just to get you familiar think… Kickstarter and Indiegogo. They are a national company that has built a base here in Atlanta. Great stuff too.
What they asked me to do was combine all the aspects of community crowdfunding into one image based on the concept of plant growing. To be successful you need ideas, passion, people, tools and nurturing (maybe more, HAAA!). So, I came up with this illustration and they loved it. Made a few corrections as you can see in the sketch process but not much. Can you say SCORE? FOOOSHHH!

One of my Cd Cover/Illustration Designs I completed for my people Rey O$O. This is a new combination from him and his producer God Ble$$ Beats. They have been at it for a minute but this is the beginning of something new. All their skillz flowing under one roof as well as one hell of a marketing strategy. When you get a chance, check em’ out! FoOsH!!!!

This was a painting I submitted to my brotha Zulu Quic for “The Funklordz Anniversary”. The Art show was curated by Dan The Man, an artist that is known for grandwonderful art as well as his infamous “Mano-A-Maon” Art shows. The theme was Mayan culture based and I chose to base mine on Ixchel. She is the Mayan Goddess of fertility as well as more. Peep this info from www.holisticnp.com:
Ixchel is the ancient Maya goddess of fertility & healing. Ix means goddess of the feminine. Chel means rainbow or light. In other words, she is the: Lady of the Rainbow, Goddess of the Rainbow and Lady of Sacred Light. She is always associated with bodies of water, lakes, streams, rivers and creeks. Anywhere you would be likely to see a rainbow.

As you can see, I dealt with the connections and misunderstandings between men and women. It has the baby confused. What we do affects more than we tend to know. Can’t be too selfish.
