Jeru the Damaja - Wrath of the Math #vinylcanvas
This is my entry in #vinylcanvas, a fun internet art-jammy thing whereby a bunch of artists on twitter draw new sleeves for their favourite albums. If you search on the hashtag you'll find some awesome work by Matthew Allen Smith, Rusty Shackles, @sequentialmatt and many more!
Anyway, that was just a ton of fun to draw, little treat for myself on Friday. If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing Jeru the Damaja's epochal DJ Premier-produced masterpiece... well, clearly I would recommend that you do so. It's pretty much the first hip-hop record I ever bought, and certainly the one that started the whole 'lifelong obsession' thing. Here via the magic of Youtube are a couple of choice tracks from the album, in which as a nice bonus you can see the original (better) album art.
The Frustrated [NINJA]
Me or the Papes
Bonus: here's the inks!
Pencilled and inked in the time it took to listen to the album, coloured in the time it took to listen to the album again. Are you getting yet that I quite like this album?
