Gotta Have It

Definitely in my top 3 songs off of the album "watch The Throne" By Jay-z and Kanye West called "Gotta Have It". It has an awesome sample and a dope beat. Color edit by the awesome Benjamin Anders everything was a lot more saturated before lol.I might switch up a couple of things but here it is for now.Enjoy.


Track #4 on 'Watch The Throne'. I was going to re-interpret a shot from the video but I felt like it would be redundant. So i decided to create the performance that would have been -Jay, Ye, and Otis himself ...Also i felt like the song deserved the timeless Grey scale photo treatment ,added a bit of noise to the image.Ps: congrats to Jay and Bey on the baby the song "new day" makes a lot of sense now... Enjoy.

Street Style

Preview of a larger post I'm working on. Walking to and from cafes to sketch people every so often I come across stylish or just interesting people who are (for the most part) extremely friendly . I've always loved blogs like 'the sartorialist' ,'GQ's Tommy Ton photos and 'the aveder outfit' thought it'd be more interesting to see a quick illustration alongside the images. They're all holding my new business cards by the way ;) stay tuned to this post for updates .Enjoy.

"I am not a black artist, I am an artist."-Basquiat

These are dedicated to Art-N-Hustle.com a great website that I was lucky enough to be interviewed by and for Lesean Thomas an amzing Artist and animator that was kind enough to plug my blog on his facebook fan page. Not going to be posting as many solo characters anymore-As I said in the previous post it's time to practice everything else .With that said thanks again and stay tuned :).


Last weekend I went to Montreal to visit a friend and attend some of the shows at the Osheaga music festival which hosts over 100 recording artists and Dj's from all around the world. Needless to say it was epic! When I was there I got turned onto some bands that I didn't really listen to ,one of which was Crystal Castles -the lead signer Alice Glass put on an amazing show.She was almost creepy(every time she sang into the mic it was robotic /distorted). Been quite busy lately sorry for the lack of posts but it'll alll be worth it soon ;) more to come .
listen here -> *Crystal Castles-Empathy* .Enjoy
