The bulk of the products on this site are of a hand drawn nature. Back in 2006 I had a very unfortunate hard drive failure that cost me over 80 new designs I had created digitally. Anyone who has ever lost tons of data via a hard drive failure knows how devastating that can be. I was so put off by what had happened that I decided to go back to the trusty pen and paper as I knew it could not fail me. It was through the loss of information that brought about my thirst of illustration and documentation.
Not too long after I picked up pen again was the passing of J Dilla, a prolific music producer. I was so moved by his passing that I decide to not only create a tribute image but create the most detailed visual documentation of his lifes work. It was painstaking as well as educational. I found things in his discography that even i didn't know he made.
I fell in love with the style I had created of documenting the greatness that people, places and things that have contributed to man kind and decided to expand upon it. This is my story...
