Recently, I’ve been slowing down on doing random sketches, rough drafts and concepts. Instead, my focus has been to go back through the pages of shit I’ve done, and begin to finalize them or create bigger, cleaner versions. There are so many holes in my game. Working smarter/being more efficient is the biggest hole. So, I took my 2 off days and committed to completing 2 projects, start to finish.
The first was a thank you gift of sorts to the gallery owner who lets my crew set up shop every month to slang merch. It was the gallery’s 1 year anniversary so I figured I’d create something incorporating that. A real no-brainer.
I came across this process of using frisket film to basically create a stencil style effect. I thought it was neat, and was artistically very horny and I needed to get that nut off so I found a way to use the technique on this project without interfering with the original design and order of things.
Multi-functional tracing paper. Aside from it’s actual purpose, it makes a great…smudge guard(?)
Half a blunt and a bowl later, fin.
If you’re in Baltimore, stop by the gallery. It’s called The Alchemy of Art. It’s on 1637 Eastern Ave, a few blocks up from the bars and restaurants in Fells Point. Go get cultured, then get wasted.
This whole french fry themed art kick I’m on…
It’s something I can’t even begin to explain because I don’t really know myself.
I know it amuses me, and allows me to test my boundaries…
while giving me some sort of mental freedom to not take the challenge too serious. Clearly
With a lot of practice, I’ll be able to make drawings and paintings as clean as they are retarded.
This one came from just being frustrated about rash of black male deaths at the hands of police — which, sadly, is not a new phenomenon if you’re black and a male. For some reason, white America thought rappers shouting “FUCK THE POLICE” for the last 25 years was just some shit to sound rebellious.
