If you were ever curious on how the brand got started, my thoughts on design, etc., then you might want to check this out. Shoutout to the good guys at the POC Report Podcast for the interview.
A mixture of art, events & different places we’ve visited that were interesting enough to share. A day in the life of the Sldrs.
This past week, I got to catch up with the homie Dakota as he invited Nia (from Bakestuy ) and myself to his radio station to talk about everything from cookies being a vegetable to cheap dates. Be sure to check it out. Thanks again for having us!
One of my NYE resolutions was to draw more, so I challenged myself to draw 1 portrait a day for all of January. I didn’t quite pull it off (21 total), but these were a few of my favorites. Every 4 block of sketches shows improvement. It’s funny how a little bit of practice (WE TALKIN BOUT PR-) goes a long way. This wasn’t a personal challenge either. Other artists join in on twitter. Thanks to everyone who participated. I added their names below along with the final 4 sketches and a link to view everyone’s work.
I missed Comic Con 2014. I made a post briefly touching on that last year. (You can check that here.) I had no interest in doing that 2 years in a row. With that said, it was everything I expected. Possibly more. Whether or not it’s just a fad for many, we’re in the era of the nerds and geeks. Everything from Blockbuster Superhero films, to TV shows, netflix specials, etc. It’s safe to say, the world has finally fell love in love with the sub-culture.
And it’s great.
I have a new found appreciation for what Cosplayers do too. There’s so much effort that goes into creating some of these costumes. Seriously, some of you are amazing. Even if you aren’t a fan of ‘comics’, it’s still a great time. Besides, there’s still lots to do. Panels, giveaways, artists to meet, video games, etc. Comic Con is huge. (With more than 150,000 people in attendance, way to state the obvious, right?) But what I mean is, with the sheer amount of things you can get into, a 1 day pass couldn’t do proper justice as I’ve come to learn this year.
Enough of my yapping. Below you’ll find all the cool people who were nice enough to pose for a picture and stay in character. (ie Batman and Capt. Jack Sparrow) I’ll be there next year and I think you should too.
#SubwaySeries – This week’s Subway Series performer is one of my personal favorites. I’ve spotted him before but it was the first time I got a video of him playing. Every so often you may catch him hanging around the Broadway x Lafayette station.
