H.A.M (bonus) track #14 on Watch The Throne. Probably my least favorite song on the album. So like the previous post I decided to kinda tie it into a memory. i edited my best friend Kat's race to the song cuz the beat is pretty epic. Also, I kinda liked the mask of confidence (*cough*cockiness*cough*) he has before a race even though he may be shitting himself on the inside ,the stress of it all is what makes you excel half the time. Here's to you breaking the sound barrier homie. Enjoy.

Onto the bonus tracks- I was gonna do something totally different but whenever I listen to this song track #13 "Illest Motherf*cker Alive" (excuse my french) I remember this day with the homies late this summer. Insanely talented group of people who also happen to be really easy to hang out with,also they can be brutally honest which is a quality people don't often appreciate especially as artists...Left to right, Adam temple , myself, Freddy Carrasco, Oliver Merlo also check out Michele Assarasakorns' blog (she was there in spirit that day lol)! Brace yourselves for their awesomenesness. Tried to get that Pascal Campion warm fuzziness in this one ;). Enjoy.

Why I Love You track# 12 . WOOP WOOP! I finished with the first 12, now onto the bonus tracks ,which unfortunately will be uploaded and worked on at a much slower pace ( I got other stuff I have to start working on :) ). About the piece though I love this song ...I had another idea about a prince taking his dads crown ,but I decided to make that the header image for when I post all the songs IN ONE GIANT POST >:). I also put up some process stuufff. Hope you like it , criticisms are appreciated.Enjoy.

Track #11 "Made In America' This one was fun- I actually have 3 more concepts for this one ,which I might upload if not,then maybe just the thumbnails .I actually love that song so I thought a lot about it. Please don't forget just trying to improve so if you have any helpful advice from composition to color it'd be cool if you pointed it out-I work on these so much I don't often step back enough to see stuff .Also, shoutout to Yue Wu always inspiring !Hope you like it. Enjoy.

Track #10 "Murder To Excellence" .One of my favorites -I was having a hard time thinking of a good concept for it but my buddy Freddy (who's art you should check out if you haven't already) helped me narrow it down and this is what came of it(I had totally forgotten that Jay-z shot his brother for stealing his jewellery at 12 O_O)...Anyway hope you like it . Enjoy

Track # 8 Welcome to the Jungle. Haha as I was sketching these out in thumbnails I noticed that the concepts got harder and harder to depict.If I thought I had a hard time with colors the first time ! Hope you can dig it ... Also a Dutch website has a small feature centered around these Illustrations- I guess that's motivation enough to finish haha Thanks to my new friends at versheid.com (which means Freshness translated) and to my friend Afra for getting me the chance to be on it !Enjoy.
