Floatin' Justin Collab



My friend Carlos and I have done a bunch of collaborations the last couple of years, since first working together at AME (American Marketing Enterprises), an apparel company in Manhattan. Carlos sketched this up this morning at work and sent it over - his ver. of me floating, based on my floating guys drawings..(and since the last one I did sorta looked like him - unintentional!) I inked this at home at night ... I thought his original sketch was great and had a lot of fun finishing it. Anyone who knows me will get the references!

Really cool, Justin...lol
Looks just like you too! Good job to Carlos for nailing you...your likeness, that is... ;)
The only thing missing from the drawing is a huge pentagram on the floor below you and huge Devil horns growing out of your temples. Oh yes, and a computer mouse as an appendage.

As far as the references go buddy..I think this speaks for itself. Nice work!

Lou said...

what I meant to say was..."nice joint effort!"

Jess:tsk, tsk...you got it all right except for one thing...no mouses for me!! I only use a tablet and pen! using a mouse to me is like painting with a potato or something...thanks, though on the art..yeh, Carlos did a great job...of DRAWING me..you nut!

Lou:I dig your last line! Shmoke 'em if you got 'em! Glenn, do I hear a 'pass the dutchie'?

Nice work between you and Carlos-- the
only thing missing is a doobie and a Japanese
action figure..!!!!

(...and don't knock painting with a potato till
you try it--it's pretty fun!!)

Charles:there IS a doobie and a Japanese action figure! :) I'll have to try the potato painting out one day! (not!) Thanks, brutha.
