Bart Station in Oakland

Part I

Part II

I can honestly say I have taken part in every aspect of Hip Hop - Grafitti, Taggin', Dancing (Breakin' - housing - etc), Rapping and Beat making). In this and future videos will be introducing you to my other skills such as music production and Rhymin' (Rappin). This is only part 1 of this demo - Part 2 will be uploaded soon

This was a late night mission. I took my easel, canvas, brushes, paint and iPod to the train station and painted the scene. I recently moved to Oakland and have been fascinated with the Bart (train) Stations ever since. This image took about 2.5 -3 hours. It was really fun to do - with all of the people getting off of the train watching me. There was one passenger who started photographing me as I painted. It was an extremely thrilling scene with him snapping shots from different angles, other by standers watching and me painting as I jammed away listening to my favorite tunes.

Thanks for viewing'

Dance baby dance

Just at work and needed to loosing up some before i got started on some new concept designs for a project that I'm working on. So I did this in like 5 min or so. I was pumping the old Salt and Pepa song "Shake your thang" while doing this drawing. Classic song by the way.

adventures in self-publishing

Late Show

This is my latest drawing done in pencils. I am still hanging in there with not using the computer and I have been growing quite considerably. I have now learned to render effects that I would normally do using Photoshop with my pencils.
