This was inspired by a line in a jay-z song. It's one of my favorite lines, because it explains the mind state and reasoning of a misguided youth. It's a self destructive and dangerous attitude to have, but unfortunately its not uncommon.

Did this pic in early 2008, this was still the early stages for me using adobe illustrator, so i was very proud of myself. It also shows me how far i have come with the program and how far i have to go.

Lately i've been more inspired by feelings and how things make me feel, rather than how things look. It's only natural that, the new outlook would reflect in my work. I really enjoyed putting this piece together and the process was fun, that's what matters.

This pic was for the ENOUGH IZ ENOUGH art show @ City Of Ink. The theme of the show was police brutality, the pic shows a bruised victim of police brutality. The overall feel i wanted this pic to have, is a feeling of rising above.
This is a pic of the legendary hip hop artist MF DOOM, i did for ghettomanga's MF DOOM contest. The basic idea of the pic is, well it's kinda like 2 concepts. First, it's like takin somethin out of its element, somethin considered grimey and pairing it with somethin that is the total opposite. Second the cupcake can be viewed as a metaphor for the current state of hip hop, kinda sugary and candy coated, kinda SWEET! Those are basically the two ideas that went into it, i enjoyed being in the contest and in the magazine. You can pick up your copy of ghettomanga quarterly at Ghettomanga.com, shout out to samax for showin the love!

Yea, this pic right here, is all about fallin for the wrong chick. Like she does no wrong in your eyes, but every body else can peep game. You're caught up in the rapture, in the illusion of an ideal. She has you wrapped around her finger and she knows it. As with any illusion after a while it fades and sometimes it turns into a cold harsh reality. Thats when you realize my friend.........I KNOW YOU DON'T LOVE ME. HA!
Every time, i do a pic, with some sort of nudity, i get the same reaction. It's like that chick is naked, you're a perv, you only draw women if they are naked. My reasoning for that is, you wouldnt get a vintage corvette and cover it wit a blanket, hiding the curves and lines. So basically with this piece, it's a very strong, independent woman but she is soft also. The idea is she's confident with herself, where as with most women if there breast got exposed they would quickly cover it. With her she leaves it exposed. That takes a confident women and theres something sensual about it too, a softness that's sexy. Yet, some people only see a chick with her tit hanging out, so maybe they are the pervs. lol
This picture, came about, from the duality i see in women. Particularly, when they are in love.
For how ever nice a woman can be, she also has the ability to be that destructive and cold.
Emotions are as delicate as a hair trigger at times.
So what i was aiming for was to show both beauty and a coldness, lil confusion too.
In a way love and hate, are the same emotion.
You really don't have the conviction to hate something, unless you once loved it.
