Daily doodle: Still watching @netflix @TheGetDown #theGetDown #hiphop #graffiti

Netflix’s The Get Down reminds me of the first time I heard rap on the radio as a kid. It was 1986 in Seattle, I was flipping radio stations and came across Run DMC’s “My Adidas” and then it was followed by the Beastie Boys. I had never heard anything like it before. We moved to L.A. The year after and my interest in the music grew. Living in the Mar Vista housing projects and being close to Venice Beach meant seeing a lot of graffiti around and in places like Graffiti Park. The two always seemed intertwined and I had a great affection for both art forms.

Welcome to my daily sketch blog run primarily from my smartphone. I left a corporate job a few years ago to work in comics and on my Art. Follow me, my foibles and triumphs as I do what it takes to improve my skills and make it in the comic book industry. Hey, it's either that or crying myself to sleep and I think I'm too cheery for that ;)
