How time does fly. One day you're posting new work then the next thing you know its two and a half weeks later and you've done nothing. anyway i figured its time to get out of my artists block mindset and share some work. these are in no way finished pieces, but i might take it there one of these days. ive been listening to a lot of Blueprint 3 since it dropped on the 8th, so i decided to do some quick sketches of J-Hova himself. hopefully i can share some more finished work soon

i was going though my DVD collection a few days back and came across my copy of Juice. not sure what it was, but something about the cover struck me as cool and i decided to try and caricature it. i didn't push the exaggeration as far as i wanted, but im still happy with how it came out. The movie itself is excellent. I remember seeing it for the the first time when i was about 9 years old and thinking how disturbing Tupac's character Bishop was. at first glance you might think its just a shoot em up movie set in an urban environment. when you really sit down and watch you see its really an example of what power, violence, greed and the need for respect can do to even the closest of friends. the best reason to watch this movie is Pac. even though it was his first film, it may very well be his best. his portrayal of Bishop is something you just gotta see. for those not familiar with the flick, the trailer is below. take some time out and peep it.

Ive recently realized how big of a fan i am of the HBO show True Blood. I picked up on it toward the end of the first season and it was pretty good, but something about this new season really hooked me. Now my anticipation for the final episode of season two made me realize i cant get enough of it. For those who havent seen it, take the time to check out the first season on dvd, im sure you will be addicted. and for the twilight fans, this is basically everything that pathetic franchise wishes it could be and more. By the way i hate Twilight, sorry kids. Anyway to stay on topic i decided to caricature one of my favorite characters from the the show. Bon Temps own vampire sherrif Eric Northman
