I've been out of the blogging scene for the moment. I've just got a job at Warner Bros working on a collaboration deal with the Consumer Products Department. I'm licensed to do most of the Looney Tunes and Tom N' Jerry art for all consumer good. I'm excited and blessed on this blessing. Before I got the job, I was working on a series of paintings of women on wood panel with Acrylics. I'm almost done with this first paint that I've been working on and off for the past couple of months.
I just did another single cover, YES! YES! It's was for a great friend of mine from Miami, Marcel Ledoux. He's a great vocalist and is making a come up in the music game. I was glad and humbled to work on this and others that are coming soon. His single is "Memories" and I think all of us that have been in a heavy, loving relationship in the past can relate to this song.
So I had a the honor to design some of my art onto my boy, Omarion.. It was fun getting an idea for all of these. I did 3 designs, one that's Tribal/Military, second that's is a gun and third and final piece is a Rolex. He only got two of the designs for right now. Check it out.
Im excited to be able to work on such a project like this one. The mixtape, The Awakening by Omarion came about when I get a call to work on unique project such as this. The concept was to bring in a new sound of music for the R&B world.. Omarion want to revive the genre to a new level. So by willing to do so on his part he wanted me to go about on pushing my views on the subject. He showed me some of the sculptures of the Awakening in wish is the piece of Zeus coming out of the ground. I put in a my take of it and twisted it to a modern situation. He's on a major street in LA coming out of a building.
The cover was a collaboration with a photographer and I worked with the fonts and background. It has sort of a "Thiller" theme to it. The tracklist piece was done with Gouache and Photoshop. The cover was done with ink, pencil, and Photoshop as well. This was a great experience for me as well as for Omarion and the rest of the Starworld Family.
So I've been a Teacher's Assistant for the great Jim Salvati this Spring term at Art Center.. I've been helping him with setups and critiques in his NOTORIOUS class. Also have the pleasure doing drawings during his workshops.. here are a couples of them.
