“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!!!!
For “Poor People’s Day this year, I was asked to join in and do some art work with the children of the community on June 16th, 2012. They brought the supplies and I brought some imagination. HAAAA! Check the info! FANGGG!!
Every year, Project South remembers and celebrates Juneteenth as a major membership gathering. All members– past, present, and future– are warmly invited to join us in honoring the history of Black liberation and freedom struggles worldwide. Bring your friends, your family, your coworkers, or a date–we want to see the whole Project South family there!
This year, Project South also joins the Hunger Coalition to co-host their annual Poor People’s Day. The day will start at 10a with workshops led by Hunger Coalition and Project South staff and volunteers. Workshops will end at 12p, and everyone will be invited to participate in a “Unity in the Community” Festival, with a DJ, food, kids activities, an Open Mic, and a community Mural project led by local artist Craig Singleton.

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.
Another year and another cover. This is another book cover design for my peoples JoVonna Rodriguez. This time it is for a Collaborative effort from her and her other half, Jerome Dickens. Both are extremely grand talented writers and this book is Bangin’! Off top! I know a lot of you lovers out here will in fact love it. It’s a journey of their relationship and how it developed from an online meet to a living love over the course of a year +. It includes emails, letters, texts… you name it. Reminds me of those honest and innocent loves a lot of people forgot to have. I wanted to play off of that feeling. The design was inspired by the new direction the “Lyric Jones” project took me. This is the result. be on the look out for the book because it drops Valentines day. FOOSHHHHH!

This is the latest Cd Cover Illustration, Design and Art Direction I have completed. The first this year actually. I spent countless hours on this joint because I was doing something different than all my other covers. Wanted to take it up a notch. You may say that it looks like all my other work but it isn’t. I tried a couple of new techniques that I wasn’t use to using in Illustrator as well as challenged myself drawing wise. I’m proud of the result. What do y’all think? FISKKKKKKOOO!

Round 3!!! Another Cd Cover illustration and Design I created for my young braddah Senor Kaos. This was in the works for a while and an unfortunate situation with my hardrive made it even longer. Yet and still it made it into existence. Some of my close associates argue that the first one I created was better but this final one here satisfied the client. A lot of time and effort goes into my work. It shows! FOOSHHHHHH!
