When the Walls all Fall

For the new album Holy Toledo by Ohio-based rapper A-Laz. Tried mixing up the style a little for this one, looking for a more grafitti-influenced, gritty look. Using more of a mix between digital and traditional media, and feeling really good about the results.

Check out some of A-Laz's work at (Squeamish be forewarned, there is some explicit content).

Let's get it on now, 5 4 3 2 1!

My fan art of Street Fighter 3's Twelve has been chosen as one of the winners for Capcom's Third Strike Art Contest! My piece will be appearing in the upcoming re-release of one of my favorite games, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, for PS3 and Xbox. Awesome!

You can see the other winning entries for Twelve here. I'm totally blown away and humbled by the other two winners--Brian's in particular is really stunning.

The winning entries for Remy and Urien are also up. There's a lot of great stuff to look at, so check it out.

I particularly love Jen's painting of Remy. What a great pose, with so much subtlety and character to it. Remy looks thoughtful and pensive, but ready to spring into action at any moment, like a knife balanced on its edge (or something). Inspiring stuff.

Google Art Project

In case anyone hasn't heard about this yet, I highly encourage you to check out one of the coolest new websites around, It's a little like google street view, except that it's inside, and it happens to be inside of a bunch of awesome museums. And instead of looking at buildings and trees, you're looking at masterworks, and zooming in on them close enough to see individual brushstrokes, in high resolution, blown up to the size of your hand.
