I recently completed a commission for a youth sports program. Here is the ending result, the first image is based on a drawing drawn by a younger and talented artist thus I cant take credit for the concept, I however vectored the image and improved it as instructed by the costumer.
The second image is a poster I created afterwards for the program itself.
I’m honestly simply out of words to justify such a long absence, I could simply say that life got in the way, school got in the way, reality got in the way, and perhaps procrastination as well. Horrible events took place in the world, the Gaza genocide, police brutality was rampant and lethal, and hip hop transitioning into 3 to 4 min commercials starring your favorite actors.
Anyways Here’s A little Collection of Sketches/Work/Commisions I’ve done throughout the year;
This will eventually be painted on canvas.
A Personal Tattoo Design.
Another potential painting for sure as well.
A life drawing pose sketch 20 mins.
Another personal random tattoo Design.
Oh yes and I did some more tattooing, I still have a lot to learn however.
And here’s another tattoo commission done for a friend.
Just a quick self portrait which I started long time but just got around to finishing today.
Due to missing work this morning, I figured I’d be productive by spending some time in Photoshop CS6 which I haven’t touched in months. I used to be a graphic designer for a few companies but mostly used Illustrator for its awesome preciseness, I was afraid I had maybe lost my touch in Photoshop. For awhile I had this idea to make a satirical version of the ”OBEY” brand logo into something I felt was more appropriate in terms of a revolutionary theme.
Personally I wouldn’t wear want to wear the word ”Obey” in a society where most of our actions subtly revolve around the obeying of our governments even if in some cases (most cases) they’re corrupt, obeying the law even if sometimes it may be absurd and unjust, and obeying corporation due to their contributions in funding our governments and power gained from consumerism and capitalism. Its as if that brand name is there to subconsciously enforce those ideologies, but don’t get me wrong they make awesome clothing denouncing the things I’ve mentioned above but still to this day I still question myself as to why the brand is called Obey.
What I would suggest is for you to:
I’ll be crudely honest and say I’m a little hung over (hence the length of this post) but here’s what I’m currently working on today;
Its a package I often do for people who are looking for a professionally designed logo, in this current case this is for my mother’s Haitian restaurant. (its the first time I’ve had a relative as a client) The bundle is accompanied by an eye candy business card. I find that a business card and a logo should always be visually appealing due to the first impression it reflects upon your business or enterprise.
I wish all mothers including mine, a happy mother’s day.
I got to make an awesome poster for an event organized by a friend of mine. He’s in charge of organizing a event awarding outstanding cinematography achievements to the students
who are making a film as a final project. The theme of the poster is based on the Oscars Night. It Took me about 4-5 hours to complete the poster.
Other then that I’d like to apologize for my recent inactivity in posts, the black death is approaching (exams :p) and I must prepare myself to survive lol.
