#FanArtFriday- Diana of Themyscira


Best. Prodigy. Tribute. Ever. #ripProdigy

 People are always questioning the hip hop credibility of Marvel, saying it's just a "money grab" doing the hip hop tribute covers.  I say that's bullshit, because dudes I know at Marvel  like Deadpool artist Mike Hawthorne sweat hip hop, son.  He shared these two sketches from his Little RED Sketchbook today in remembrance of the recent passing of legendary emcee Prodigy of Mobb Deep...

The Brother has been busy...

 Jay Kelley's messianic African time-traveler The Brother returned to my drawing table this week to help me and Jay vent our frustrations with President Trump and the Legion of Extraordinary Super-Bastards he calls a Cabinet.  But like Trump, the Brother has been busy lately...

The video for "MARIA" by @3DNaTee got me fucked up! Let's get familiar...

Generally speaking, people love the myth that female rappers can't spit.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe dudes like to horde all the quick-thinking ladies to themselves?  Maybe their egos can't handle the thought that a woman can bury their favorite emcee in bars?  Maybe they are afraid of being let down again like Sean Price (riP)

Who knows...  Anyways, a dude shared this video for Maria by New Orleans spitter 3D Na'Tee on one of the groups I'm in.

And.

DAMN.

Tweet of the Week




Peep my new drawing "The Dragon Queen"


If you've been a fan of my art for very long, you're already familiar with Seattle-based jewelry designer Camisha Jackson, a frequent subject of my portraits and sketches.  The first drawing I did of her was as a character called the Dragon Lady (Camisha hearts dragons), back in the Myspace Era.  Since then, the Dragon Lady has ascended to the throne of whatever afrofuturistic fantasy realm she inhabits, as evidenced by the title of this piece...

Here's a Kid Carvers sketch Samax drew for a customer

So I needed some money one day, so instead of asking for money, I offered a one day sale where customers who bought an issue of Kid Carvers & The Backyard Bike Bandits from the GM store got a free sketch of the Carver twins.  The offer got lots of likes, shares and a few comments, but only one customer.  So here's what I drew for him...

Rhymer/Illustrator Gift Revolver did artwork for this guy MidaZ the Beast, which would be reason enough to encourage you to listen to MidaZ's 2016 album Loops Two.  But as it turns out, Loops Two is a fabulous blend of true-school street hop and nerdcore wordery.  Stream the record below, and read some words from me, if you're so inclined...

DC's handed the keys to some lesser characters to Gerard Way for his Young Animal label of books, and he is making some damn good comics.  My favorite is the incredible Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye with incredible cartoon art by the mighty Mike Oeming (Powers, Mice Templar, Hammer of the Gods).
