One Love...

What’s good everyone?

As ever, it’s been an absolute age since I lasted updated the blog, despite promises to be much more active here. I know I always complain about life being hectic, but this time, forreal, life is bonkers. On March 8th our Family expanded, when my beautiful Wife, Corrie gave birth to our son, Mace. All is good – Corrie is doing great, Mace is a dream and even his 2 year old big Sister, Marley has handled his arrival brilliantly. As I’m sure you can imagine, he’s been keeping us more than occupied, so the drawing hasn’t been my top priority.















On the flip side, work has been slow again, so on the down time I’ve finally gotten around to rocking this Nasty Nas illustration. I’ve been a fan of Nas since I first heard him on Main Source’s ‘Live At The BBQ’ and, like the rest of the Hip Hop heads of my generation, was blow away by the quality of his debut album, ‘Illmatic’. I’ve long wanted to do a Nas artwork, and have had a painting of him on the go for well over a year now, but haven’t found the spare time to finish it off. So, in the mean time, I’m pretty stoked to have put together this ode to his ‘One Love’ single.

Check it out below and don’t hesitate to drop a comment.

Cheers,

Congratulations!
I know how it is. The arrival of newborn is really time consuming but it is one of the best things in the world.

Love the Nas piece.
