I completed this drawing for an advertisement as soon as I made it back from my residency. Tried to apply a few things I learned! Enjoyed it immensely!

Charcoal and ink on bristol 19x24. Thanks to studio mate Jenn Ayers for the reference.

Will post thoughts and imagery from the said residency soon.

Stay positive!

I think this verse descibes you well Mr. Vallejo:

"I know I'm dope but don't wet that
I've suffered setbacks but now I'm makin greenbacks
Just like baggy slacks I'm crazy hip-hop
Check one two and you don't stop
Your head'll bop when I drop my crop
of pure bomb, just like the seashore I'm calm
But wild, with my monotone style"

Crazy as heck man!
