Gin & Juice...

What’s happening folks?

This weekend I got another chance to break out the pencils and do some drawing while Corrie had lunch with the girls.

I’ve wanted to draw a Snoop Doggy Dogg portrait for a while, but hadn’t really found the right source image – I wanted a ‘Doggystyle’ era image, rather than a more recent picture, so was stoked when I came across this particular photo.

Have a butchers at the image below and let me what you reckon (click to enlarge)

Universal Magnetic...

Happy New Year everyone – I trust you all had a great Festive break. We had a quiet one here – a couple of weeks of family time with Corrie and Marley and very little else, aside from a couple of DJ gigs (Section 8 on Christmas Eve and support for Redman & Method Man on New Years Day) and linking with my old mate Graeme Sinden (big up to you and the Missus – safe journey home) while he toured Australia.

Considering we really didn’t do anything, I still struggled to find time to draw, so this weekend, while Corrie and Marley were out for the day, I finally found some time to do some much needed sketching. It’s mad hot out here right now (sorry my UK peoples), so closing the blinds and bunging the air con on while I flexed my pencils was a good look.

I’ve been a fan of Mos Def for the longest – from the old Urban Thermo Dynamics to guest spots on De La, Bush Babies and Tribe joints, not to mention his own 12”s on Rawkus – so I thought I’d rock a portrait of the man himself.

Check it out below and let me know what you reckon (click image to enlarge)
