I recently signed up to Jason Seiler's Schoolism class, and so far it's been pretty awesome. It's also been a humble reminder that there's always something new to learn, even when you think you've got it all figured. Anyway, these are a few sketch studies done for the first assignment.
I've been neglecting my beloved blog for way too long. Shameful! Well what better way to get things back on track then to post a commissioned piece done for 2 very talented rappers.
Back in October 2012, I did a promotional t-shirt design for UK soul legend, Omar Lyefook (Scroll down on here to October 2012 to Check it out).
A few months later he posted the illustration as his profile picture on Facebook. The response was pretty unbelievably positive. All of a sudden my FB message inbox was flooded with compliments, add requests, and potential projects. But one of the projects that stood out was from Si Phili (Formerly of Phi-Lyfe-Cipher).
We got on pretty much straight away, so when he asked if I could do an illustration for an upcoming album with his rap partner, Dom Dotz, there was no hesitation. Anyway, long story short, above is the finished result, and it was damn fun to make. REAL Hip Hop heads out there, the album is out now so check it out if you can because its nothing but dope.
