Soul Portrait 1- Andrew Ashong

Discovered Andrew through Gilles Peterson's show and have been listening ever since. Dig the brothers sound and he is the first in a new series of art and illustration featuring Soul musicians. So look out for Portraiture and Typography similar to the Jazz Series and very experimental.

Some of my favorite songs by Andrew so far are Flowers, Never dreamed, and Don't know why.

Character 80-Butterfly Kid

If you make fun of his wings, he'll punch you. You've been warned.

Handstyles 7- Amel Larrieux

 

Amel Larrieux-Magic One of my favorite pick me up songs from the 2006 "Morning" album which Amel and her husband put out independently. Can't remember the photographer because I no longer have the CD but the cd was designed by Mark Coston.

What is this? Handstyles! For as long as I've been drawing I've been practicing lettering. First i. the form of Graffiti, then calligraphy, graphic design, kerning, type setting, sign painting, and so many other forms. I'm not a designer or a lettering specialist, but I can hand write a few different styles and enjoy hand lettering when it's done right.

The internet's own boy-Inspiration

There are a lot of different things, issues, or points I can say about this documentary, but the most important thing would be that it is worth watching. It deals heavily with what you are using right now to read these words. The internet.
