Memory lane PT 2

Ok, let's continue our stroll...

Did this back when Tupac had died and everyone was coming out with album after album of his unreleased stuff. I showed this piece at a High School for at risk youth I used to teach at and some of the boys thought I was making fun of their idol and wanted to jump me. Good thing I have nerves of steel ;)



This is one of my favorites. I got the texture by pouring salt over the still wet colored inks I was using.



This was stolen and used on the cover of a limited release Redman mix CD thing. I even saw a picture of Redman holding one he had signed. They altered it a little and made it look intensely stupid.



When I was still doing advertising work for the Sixers I always had to draw a kindler, gentler Iverson. They never wanted tatoos on him or anything. So, I ended up doing one for my self with the tats to put in my portfolio.


That's all for now.
