Lil Wayne Pencil Drawing

It took me forever to draw this picture because I was dealing with depression at the time.  I did a little bit at a time until I finished it.

Ebro's Top 50 Rappers

Image
XXL retweeted a post of a podcast that had their list of the 50 Top Rappers of all time.  A lot of people posted their list including Hot 97's Ebro from the morning show.  I am drawing his list and I would like challenge other Artist's to draw Ebro's list.  I plan to use this list to  put together an Apple Music Playlist.

Black and Blue Movie Trailer

Image
Movies are very inspirational to me. I don't know anybody who could not name you their favorite movie. I used to be big into scifi but I lean now towards more realistic action movies. There's almost always a love story even if it's "tuck away" in the movie or alluded to. But yeah Love and Basketball is one of my favorites. I think Prince's Purple Rain is up there and Glory staring Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman.

Improving as an artist

In the past I have not been consistent with my art.  I would go long period's without drawing.  I would say that I regrouped and got serious about my art in 2017.  I have so many projects in my head that I am anxious to show you.  Please check back often.
