Woo Ha...

What’s going on everyone?

As promised, I managed to squeeze a couple of hours of drawing in over the weekend while Corrie was out and Marley slept. I threw on Dave Chappelle’s Block Party DVD and got to work on this Busta Rhymes portrait.

Check it out below (click image to see larger version) and let me know what you think.

All the best,

Insane Macbeth...

What’s happening, people?

It’s been a while since the last update – I’ve been away travelling with my Wife and Daughter – we caught up with our friends and Family back in the UK and hit New York for a spot of shopping on the way back.

As a result, I’ve not had much of a chance to put pencil to paper, but I intend on trying to steal a couple of hours over the weekend to flex a new sketch.

In the mean time I’ll hit you up with this commissioned sketch I had been working on for the past few months. Basically, UK Hip Hop Legend / Veteran, Insane Macbeth hit me up a while back asking for a sketch. He sent me some images to work from and some guidelines to follow and I got down to work.

During our UK stay, I took the finished sketch to Brixton and caught up with the man himself and had a yarn about the good old days of UK rap. Biggups Insane Macbeth, it was an absolute pleasure both working with and socializing with you – and thanks for the records.

Check the sketch below, and peep Insane Macbeth’s Myspace page here:
