This week’s work

This week, I posted three new pieces that I’ve been working on over the past couple of weeks.

My first piece is for R&B group, KING. Three beautiful ladies with beautiful harmonies asked me to create the single art for their upcoming single “Mister Chameleon.” The artwork blends my love for florals and pattern/textile design and the group’s request to keep it colorful (my forte), with the mysteriousness of the man in the song. Check out the 6 second preview of the song below and look at my previous post for the full artwork.

The second piece is for the Baltimore City Paper’s review of the classic Jean-Luc Godard film, Alphaville. This project was fun for a variety of reasons, the main reason being that it was for the City Paper, my former place of employment for nearly seven years. This is my first piece for them since leaving at the end of 2011.

The third piece is dear to me because it was completed for a Charles County, Maryland theater, Port Tobacco Players (local to me). This is my third (and favorite) poster that I have done for them to date. The poster that I designed and illustrated is for Godspell. Godspell is a musical based upon the gospel according to St. Matthew. If you look at images of St. Matthew as depicted by artists and sculptors of the past, he is usually seen holding the gospel with a big beard. Seeing as how beards have made a comeback and Godspell is known for its modern interpretations of the gospel, I thought it would be cool to have a hipster-like St. Matthew on the poster. The tattoos on his arms include lyrics from the musical, except for the tattoo on the far left which references the lyric “We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land…” from the song “All Good Gifts.”
