Wham Bam Islam is a film my studio had the pleasure of working on over the past year. The Film was directed by Isaac Solotaroff and explores the negative stereotypes the Muslim community receives and its lack of heroes to positively inspire. Enter "The 99". Super-Heroes to inspire the children of Islam.

This cover was originally illustrated for Hip-Hop Legend Redman for his album "Red Gone Wild". His concept was to depict himself as his infamous Superman Lover character but in a more stylized modern Batman Begins sort of way.
The project evolved over time going from Spider-man to a Mad Magazine style Alfred E. Newman look. Even though the final artwork was eventually approved it was not used in the final printing.Illustration, Digital Art, Graphic Design2011
This personal piece was done primarily in Adobe Illustrator with effects added in Adobe Photoshop.

When I was younger I was obsessed with graffiti. I'm sure it influenced me subconsciously into becoming a graphic designer. Now that I am a professional I dont get the opportunity to work on graffiti related projects as much. This is my first pass at helping me focus back on it.Graffiti, Graphic Design, Illustration2010
