notorious b.i.g bday



Yesterday was Notorious B.I.G's birthday, it would have been his 41st.
I drew up this portrait of Biggie with his Jesus piece. Crazy and tragic to think he was only 24 when he passed, younger than myself.

Finished this piece.

Here's a progress shot, from my instagram.


I actually listened to a series of David Foster Wallace interviews a friend had sent me while  making this drawing originally, but maybe it would be too morbid to post some of the last words of someone who hung themselves with an image of a noose? So for your post related song of the day, here's a bird singing about hanging:

I had this idea for a typography project, and then after I finished I thought to myself  "why don't I animate it too?".

Below is the song I was listening to when I came up with the idea (not the Yeah Yeah Yeahs one might think).

comic expo




Had a rad time at the comic expo this year! Always awesome to see people digging the work, and everyone had the nicest things to say about my drawings. See a picture of Sam and I slanging our work above, me signing a dude's nipple below, and a fantastic four comic someone commissioned me to draw Batman and Robin on (do I attract the oddballs?). Thanks so much to everyone who came out and showed support for this thing I love to do and continue to work at!
