Introducing M'lady

Hey folks! As you may or may not know, all of the stuff on here is basically personal projects or commissions, but during the day I run a design studio with my wife. Since we are manning our studio booth together at Comic Con and we're meeting SOOOO many awesome people who will be visiting this blog, I wanted to share her blog with you. Check her out here. Enjoy!!

Let them have their cheese

So m'lady and I put our heads together recently and we developed this new Threadless tee. She just blurted out the phrase and I said, "Heck yes. Must be a tee!". So I set aside a little time to whip up what you see below. If you like it, please vote for it (here) and/or share it with your friends via the button below the post. Thanks!! (Back to printing for Comic Con!!)

If ye be a true playa, then your hands best be in the a-ya.

I used to be a hardcore hiphop fan. To the point it was the only stuff I listened to (nowadays I've expanded my musical genres). Even more to the point I dabbled in the music making myself. I wasn't any good. If I was, this blog would be "The music of Mud!" instead of my doodles. Anyways, my hardcore phase started in the early 90s so my discman was playing a lot of Wu-Tang, Snoop, Warren G, Bone Thugs, Tupac, Nas and of course, plenty of Biggie. So when I saw the good folks over at 10 Paces and Draw were doing a Biggie/Pac mixtape challenge, I HAD to get on board. I've done some Pac illustrations but those are lost somewhere, so I wanted to do Biggie (though I might still do Pac because I like how Big turned out).

I had fun exploring more of a charicature direction when I did Spiderman many posts back (here), so I wanted to try the same approach with Biggie. The inspiration, set by 10P&D, was Big Poppa. If you watch the video, there's a strong red tone to the video so I used that as the background. Here is the finished piece in all of its glory. Hope you enjoy!

How bout some 'stache?

Hello folks!

As we're gearing up for Comic Con (Wizard World) which is later this week, I took some time out to post some older graphics I did for tees that I didn't end up using. I loved them too much to see them go to waste, so now they're available as prints over at Society6. Check them out and go ahead and buy one if you super loves it! If you want a smaller 8.5 x 11 signed print, you can always buy them through the site here. Thanks and enjoy!
