Hank Willis Thomas and let me say, he's an inspiration I've really been getting into the blend of afro-centric art and western culture. His photograph opened my mind to a new way to extend my black and white drawings her's my enhancement of my piece "Satisfaction".

I'm working on my design for the Pinchflat bike appreciation contest I wanted to do a design that would present the bike as iconic and beautiful much like Mother Africa. This is the vector work before I go in and edit color and texture any crits?
So it's pretty much official Spring Break is over and that final stretch is coming. I'm nervous/excited about it. I had some good and some bad over break, I figured I'd post my sketch for my Pinchflat competition entry. That'll be coming soon!

Since I'm re-branding once again, I'm adjusting my blog to match my BRAND (business cards, mailers, website, etc.) In commemoration of this special event I'm posting a dedication to the original "Darian's World" logo for the blog. This is actually the original sketch from my history notes lol. Enjoy!

So with my new logo and whatnot the brand is going through yet again another change and I believe for the better. I'm tapping into my inner freshness, a little Kehinde Wiley in the mesh-up technique, but I'm definitely going for a more three dimensional look, I'm getting more and more fascinated with the baroque design with a blend of Layendecker in the exaggeration of the figure. I'll be posting my painting in this style soon! I also plan on gettting back to my weekly illustration! whether It's a character or a scene:)
