VIBE illo







Hey guys, today I had the pleasure of receiving the VIBE May 2008 issue with my illustration in it. I'm real stoked with how the piece turned out with the type applied. It was great working with their art director Mark Shaw, who is doing some great things with the mag! All around good experience! As a bonus I had great company with Frank Stockton having a great piece a couple articles after mine. I hope he posts that on his blog.
take care,
-francis

ps. I guess my blog looks different depending on what browser you are using. It looks fine on Explorer but when I open it in Firefox it is misalligned. I managed to fix it for Firefox but now when I open it in Explorer it is REALLY out of whack. So I reset it. If anybody has any ideas, that would be of great help!!

Duuuude, it turned out monstorous for sure. I think it should've made the cover, Lil' Wayne is overrated. Keep it up homeboy, much love from one Francis to another!

the annoying problem with the different browsers, boy, do I know about that!

Great stuff here, bookmarked it. Best thing besides the sketches is the painting with the white face, on the photo it really looks like 3D.
