      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Did this in school for a fictional magazine cover. I believe I was very much pissed off at that point in time.

I was going to agree with you. I thought I had seen one with an eagle on it or something. I got this lion one. Its cool. I can see how you could draw comparisons but they don't go beyond an angry animal. Mine, is better if you ask me. Its trippy son.

I used to be into art more, I guess I've been burnt out on it for years. I did way too much as a kid.

Acrylics brushed and airbrushed. Comissioned by a friend.

Aerosol 8' x 10' drum riser platform. Used to have a friend that would throw big house parties with live bands. I did this one night, practically in the dark, with cheap paint, no idea in mind, in about an hour. I was high as a kite off that paint. Haha! I can't free hand letters for shit.

Another one about 2 years later (2004). Some shit I pulled out my ass again.

That's actually BB dressed up as all the bears. And notice how they're chilling in a cave. P&P are the greatest hip hop designers that have ever done the damn thing (sorry JJ).

I just picked up that A-Trak earlier this week. Been wanting that cover for years. Sadly his is not an official P&P; its just a spoff on Wayne's 'Tha Block is Hot' which is pure genius in itself.

You really can't front on the history and pure regional dominance of P&P. They were the first cats to really use photoshop for album covers and when you learn about the amount of work they would put in from going out and taking thousands upon thousands of pictures to build up their stock arsenal its truly awesome. Plus I remember reading a story about how one of the partners stayed up for days on end and created a few dozen album covers.

Personally,

I think the style is horrendously bad, but, like I said earlier, its a bit like a car crash. When you see it, you can't help but look. Good for biddness I guess.

i think they're hilarious, and i love them for being examples of something i could never do personally...for better or worse.

although i kinda wanna make a mock-up P&P-style cover for Staycation now, lol.

You should dude.

What kind of elements would be in yours?

...i'm not sure, but now i'm considering it. maybe some spooky three-dimensional typeface and me surrounded by weird chimera monsters with various C and D-list celebrity heads.
