A Project I Forgot About

Tue 03.13.18

Sometimes you work put your heart and soul into a project. You jam your blood and sweat into it. Just sweat everywhere. Then you put down this sweaty project for a minute. That minute becomes a month and that month becomes a year. And hey, some projects you just half-ass your way around until you decide it’s dead to you. You spend the next decade in an alcohol-fueled haze before stumbling upon a Photoshop file while trying to clean up your hard drive in a vane attempt at having some control over your life.

This project is from 2009. I don’t remember what my intentions where. The file was called missed_comm_masturbation.ai. It’s Our Nation’s First President, George “Big Ben” Washington!

it's washington

It seems that Washington was going to say something poignant. His words of wisdom are lost forever, like a phone in a big toilet.

I’m going to be posting more trash I forgot about.

A Little Bit of That DTS

Thu 02.23.17

Adorning the walls in my home office are framed posters of some of my favorite rappers and groups; tour posters from Atmosphere, Brother Ali’s promotional materials, illustrations from Aesop Rock’s Impossible Kid, the now-classic Run the Jewels gun and fist motif, or an ad from Tech N9ne’s Absolute¬†Power days. I have more Doomtree posters than I have space on my wall, whether it be the collective itself or solo acts like P.O.S or Sims. But, there’s one group I haven’t been able to find any merchandise for and it’s a group I love ever so dearly: The Seattle/Chicago collaboration of Onry Ozzborn and Zavala, Dark Time Sunshine. Turns out I had an extra frame laying around and some spare time, so I set out to fix this poster-sized hole in my heart:

This was a fun experiment into layer masking in Illustrator and transforming simple, geometric shapes in an entire scene. I’ve never really made anything of this scope before and I had a blast doing it. If you’re at all interested in seeing some of the process, I’ve outlined this in another post.

If you like drawings of rappers, I’ve got you covered.

Happy Halloween

Mon 10.05.15

I seem to only update this site around holidays. Works for me, I guess! Happy Halloween, have a little Jason.
Poster of Jason and what not

Here’s a 150dpi PDF of this poster¬†if you’d like to download it, save it on a thumbdrive, and then lose the thumbdrive somewhere. Have a great and spoopy Halloween, kids!
