Legendary rap group, Black Sheep, evolved from the native tongue crew groups; A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul. The band discovered me performing live art in collaboration with Brimstone 127, the opening group at one of their shows. Following the show, Black Sheep fans asked band members to autograph the drawings I had created during the show. The band subsequently hired me to produce this album cover, which has since been featured in "Vibe" magazine.
Also, I began my career as an illustrator, and here are some of my early digital illustrations. Marca Hispanic hired me to create a series of fifty illustrations for I.D.T educational books. They went on to win an Addy award.
The data head portrait was one of the last vector illustrations I've created for a commercial client.
