string bridges poster

Here is a poster I did for an upcoming gig String Bridges has. The concept came to me when I heard the name of their band ages ago, so I'm glad I finally got to pull the trigger on the design. Come to The Blues Can in Inglewood on Febuary 2nd, and support some local talent. You can listen to their music here.

something furry

Continuing the illustrations for Keepin' It Sleazy with E-Z Breezy in 2012, here is my contribution to BeatRoute's January issue. The topic was "Furries", read more about that on Beatroute's site here, or go pick up an issue around town.

Listen to Blitzen Trapper's "Furr" below.

"For my flesh had turned to can wear your fur"

january freq

At the end of last month I created this illustration for the January issue of FREQ magazine, which is out on stands now. It was originally created to be the cover, for the feature on Snowblower. Unfortunately advertisements got held up until it needed to be printed after Snowblower, so it didn't make sense as the feature anymore. You can still find this illustration inside I've been told, so go to your local news stand and pick up a copy.

I also reviewed the Pusha T mixtape "Fear of God II: Let Us Pray" in this months issue of FREQ, listen to a track from that album below where Ziplock P raps circles around your favorite MC.

fast forward weekly cover

FFWD VOL. 17 NO. 4

On December 29th the year end wrap up issue of Calgary's news & entertainment alt weekly, Fast Forward, was released. Since it was a bit of a different kind of issue for the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 they wanted a bit of a different cover. They decided to go with a comic style cover, and I was lucky enough to be chosen to create it! They wanted something "self deprecating", and I was a bit worried that my idea may be too self deprecating when I sent it off, so I was really excited when they ended up giving it the go ahead.

You can consider this a special edition of Still Here and a return after the holiday break. It's been on my bucket list to do a FFWD cover, so I was happy to be able to cap off 2011 with my first cover on news stands. They'll be around until January 4th so go check out a copy if you get the chance.....and HAPPY 2012!

Below is a rough of the cover, before I tackled the final, as well as a gratuitous picture of myself (picture curtesy of Christine).
