MINGA | Vintage Future | Great Chicago Fire

It’s official, I’ve been booked as a RAW Natural Born Artist and will be in the MOSAIC showcase. RAW events are multi-faceted artistic showcases. Each event features a film screening, musical performance, fashion show, art gallery (that’s me), performance art and a featured hairstylist and makeup artist. I am honored to be one of the hand-picked talent who are being featured at RAW MOSAIC. For the show I’m going to creating a piece inspired by the Great Chicago of 1871. This will be a part of my #VintageFuture body of work.

Huge project to kick of the year! Got invited by my man Michael over at Ocupop to lead the production on their release of HTML5 tees. Ocupop is the creative behind the entire html 5 identity that dropped earlier this week,  http://www.w3.org/html/logo/ . Partnering with W3C.org they got this thing up in a hurry!. step one for me was to take the html 5 icon, separate for printing. step two, get garments in to print. step three, confirm quality and color matching. step four, coordinate the fulfillment with print shop. step five, take additional identity assets and mock-up additional apparel and other promo items. serious amounts of communication and lots of coffee put this thing all together. many thanks to Ocupop for the opportunity and to W3C for jumping behind it and promoting it. now, go grab yours at http://html5shirt.com/

Phase 2 of the second tattoo i’m going to have Adam from Adambombgallerie.com work his magic on. this is going to start atop my hand and continue up my forearm to my elbow region. going to be a pretty spectacular tattoo when done. this also may be one of the more indepth typography treaments i’ve done. printed the original vector art out to scale, pieced it together on the light table and then proceeded to layer some sketching paper over it inking this into the current phase. had allot of fun with it. and yes, for those wondering, i have consulted adambomb to make sure the line thinkness and variations are tattoo-able.

Adambomb does such great work i’m sure it’s going to be amazing. this is pretty much the second phase here and i ‘ll be furthering this design by printing it out and adding some my own hand drawn stuff.

Had an awesome Saturday last weekend when i did a demo on how to customize a pair of black white Chuck Taylors.  Was pretty awesome, had a few folks stay the entire demo, was about 3-4hrs long from sketches to inking the final touches on the shows. Many thanks to Utrecht Art Supplies for putting this all together and giving me the opportunity to share one of my passions. thanks

Concepts that never saw production, to my knowledge anyhow, because the product was cut half way through. note to self, D&D audio doesn’t pay their bills. odd, cuz they’re supposed to have some of the best audio products on the market today, wonder how that’s possible with open invoices stacking up. either way was good experience and the designs are pretty solid.

Press checking one of the concepts that was chosen for a test at Kohl’s. Turned out pretty hot. loving the detail and pop of the colors, while still having a super soft hand.
