This is my last assignment for my illustration class call "Notorious". We were suppose to do a dead on celebrity portrait on someone who is..... Ballsy, as my instructor puts it. So I picked Joaquin Phoenix during his crazy period. Because now we all know it was all just an act. It wasn't a short act either, he took at least 2 years to convince everyone that he snapped and made a movie about it and EVERYONE thought he was nuts. THAT is an artist dedicating to his craft, so I painted him during the most interesting moments of his career up till now.
Originally, I was gonna make her so grotesque, that it's awesome. We all know what a ridiculous mess Amy Winehouse is/was. But my instructor told me to go the opposite, he wants me to make her actually attractive, instead of hideous, since it is very over done. So I tried. You'll be the judge to say whether she ends up looking alright in this one.
A piece of illustration on Mr. Kanye West's 808 & Heartbreak. It's meant to be a mock up for Rolling Stone magazine album review. For those of you who know what an 808 is will probably understand what the electric board background is all about.
Meduim: Acrylic ink.

This is a cover that I did for one of Cold Plays' first debut song "Trouble". This is one of my personal favorites by them. It never fails to make me feel really really really really really depressed. Nothing says a great song more than how shitty it can make you feel on a rainy day. lol.
Medium: Watercolor, acrylic ink, graphite.
This is another series on people who carries ink on them. I've always had an obsession on tattoos, so I love documenting people who have wonderful ink work done on them. The first one up top with the Japanese styled tattoo is an actual tattoo artist that works on Mel-rose, he specializes in oriental styled work. The second one is my schoolmate Patrick, I thought his tattoos where very interesting because it really speaks about his Los Angeles latino heritage.

This project was for us to create the packaging for our own artist edition product. I've been wanting to create something like this for my personal brand that's in the process of making. So I took the opportunity to create a toy box for the vinyl toys that I'm going to be making. The images are silkscreen onto cardboards, than I cut them out and constructed them into pyramid shaped boxes.

This is a self promo project I did for my illustration for publishing class. So I did 6 characters for each of the letter for BEHOLD. It is meant to show my personal illustrative style. I'm planning to either hand them out as individual cards or as an entire poster. Hope yall like it!
