How did you develop your passion for art?
Art is in my family. My Uncles on my mother's side Yusef and Idris were both artist and musicians. Yusef passed away November 2014 unfortunately. I have family members on my fathers side who can draw as well. As a child I followed behind my cousin Daiquan. When he would draw I would draw. I didn't consider doing art until I graduated HighSchool and didn't really know what to do with myself.
Describe your art style using slang from your favorite decade.
Your work is packed with references to pop culture. Tell us a little bit about how this has influenced you as an artist?
Pop culture is everywhere, its embedded in me, my brain, my thoughts whether I realize it or not. It gives me as an artist a foundation to work off of. My creativity stems from art in the Simpsons, South Park, Looney Tunes, iconic news stories and figures in history. I'm a 80's baby so I'm the last of the Sega, Nintendo, Playing outside era. I grew up as technology was transitioning from VHS to DVD, Cassettes to CD's. There was so much going on that influence me today.
A number of Hip Hop artists including Biggie, Pac, Ye, and Hov have made their way into your illustrations. Who is your favorite rapper?
Kanye West is my favorite rapper but Its undeniable that Tupac is arguably the best. His lyrics told the future. They fit today's issues perfectly.
Which design from the new brand is your favorite?
My favorite design is the LocDog design. Super bright, polka dots, just a hilarious cult classic character
