Slam Magazine ( December 2010)

I was looking through the December issue of Slam magazine, when I came across one of my t-shirt graphics. A few months ago I did a couple of shirts for the basketball camp, Shooting Touch, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Boston that I have worked with before. This was quite exciting to find something I did in a magazine I grew up reading.

Meeting David Choe...

Meeting David Choe, I have to admit, was the highlight of the month for me. Last weekend I went to Fashion's Night Out in New York to support my friend and illustrator Kathryn Elyse of Paperfashion. While in New York I learned that David Choe was in town for his book signing at Giant Robot and I just couldn't to miss the chance to meet one of my favorite artists. His work is amazing. He even commented that he liked the shirt I had on ( I illustrated it for Reebok)

Adventures of Muideen

This is a painting I have been working on and just finished this week. Some of you guys might remember the sketches from any older post. This paint is something I was just testing out.
