How come no one told me Ms Bailey Rae was so dope?! Been listening to her voice a lot lately.
Erykah took it where it ain't supposed to go, and kept it where it should be in the same breath...whew
There are some amazing things I'm working on.Once they're cleared, you'll see em! Been working on this one for almost seven months. Here are the sketch phases, and the two final pieces. If you are not up on Blank Bare Clean go check it out. BBC is a blog started by the homie(friend) "Issa" to express and share her view on Art, Music, Culture, and life.It reaches so many corners of the mind. She wrote a review of my 3rd zine "Sew Seoulful" last year, and offered me a shot to be featured as part of an Activist as Artist Magazine.Been wanting to reciprocate the love for a minute now.She wanted something dreamy, futuristic, colorful, and unexpected for her blog. Enjoy.

Big shouts out to Borish,Bounce,Cece,Shaun Burner,Yoshi, Joy liu, Lena perez, Susie lundy, Sarah Guerra, Nancy Hernandez, Anthony Navarro,Everyone who came through while we painted,Pablo from Valparaiso Cafe, Brian and Osha,DJ Wonway, Lena, Angela Blanca, and I'm sure I'm forgetting somebody, but it was a collaboration of a lot of people that made this happen!If you are in the bay this week, go see Anita Tijoux perform on Thursday at La pena!
If I could find the illustration I did that was based on this song, I'd post it. Its in a box some where since I moved.I got to show it to Brian Jackson though in NYC, so thats all thats important, showing respect. This is one of my favorite songs in the world, but...go read more on Muphoric and give it a listen, or two.
IN THE TRUNK- Gil Scott Heron & Brian Jackson
