Was kinda bored. Went Toy status and painted some letters on three 8.5 inch x 11 inch pieces of canvas. Gesso’d, spraypaint, acrylic, and marker.

I just want to take the time to create a posting that has all of my mixtape artwork. I look forward to working on your project soon and thank you to those who allowed me to work on their projects.

Here is another new installation from Front Room Entertainment Enterprise’s DJ Shanx and Music Flame’s Chris Jenkins. I was commissioned to do mixtape for the MVP Boys…

On this one they kinda wanted to go with a look similar to Frank Miller’s Sincity with highlights and shadows.

Here is the first version…

The final version…

Another design with Hittmenn West DJ, DJ Shanx.

Was commissioned again by DJ Shanx to do design for producer Rick Hughes. He told me to use the color blue and do my thing so I came up with this. Nailed it on the first round.

The art style was influenced by Angeleno artist El Mac and Retna

Don’t let the title get to you…Here’s the story…I was at work and I saw someone with a blank white(quiet the the off color jokes Beavis) hat and was inspired to make something of it…so I asked I could take the hat and do something with it….and so we have this posting of me creating the hat…

1) I had a plan (the words, colors, type of lettering)

2) I masked off any of the areas I didn’t want to get paint on…

3) I painted the hat twice with a coat of white acrylic paint and I used a heat gun and air dry in between coats and after…

4)Then light spray painting 5 different colors (midnight blue, medium blue, light blue, 2 pinks) on the surface after the hat
air dried well and then again…more heat and air drying…

5) After letting the hat dry well (where the surface does not feel sticky) I then sketch in the letters with a white sakura permapaque

6) After sketching the letters…I filled the letters in again with white acrylic paint…

7) Let that dry for a couple minutes then started with Deco Color markers to fill in details…

8 ) Before the unmasking…I outlined with black….

9) And Wah La…

I just wanted to go back to a previous gig and try to redo the handstyle…
