Lyrical Assault...

This particular piece was inspired by the song 75_Bars off the new album by the Legendary Roots Crew. Entitled "Rising Down" the album dropped today. Even though I am huge fan of them, I must admit I had not found out about Leonard "Hub" Hubbard stepping down as their lead bassist until AFTER I finished this piece…Shame on me.

I recommend picking this album up because the Roots never disappoint. Hell I called in late to work today just so I could go pick it early. Shhhhh….that’s our little secret.

Two-fer Special...

It has been a little while since my last post. I have been quite busy. Fear not though, because I have two posts condensed into one.

One thing that’s kept me busy is the piece I posted above. The story behind this is that I was given the opportunity to create an image for the cover of the upcoming album by The Blackhorse Project; headed by Mikeloliver and lead vocalist Miss Brooks. They specialize in authentic NYC Deep House Music. On Molaman Records, the Album is due to drop with cover image and all at the end of May so make sure you listen out.

Next order of fun is Chop Shop Shapes... This particular blog (that I contribute too on a regualr basis) is headed by Aaron Brewer of Brewtoons.com. The concept of this site is relatively simple idea, but oh so wonderful all at the same time. Each week or so Mr. Brewer posts a new shape and from there all who wish to contribute have to create an image (or more) involving that shape. My contribution for this week for this week is posted above. If you want to see the shape it is based on you best head on over. I promise it will be worth your time
