For those who don’t recognize this guy. This is the one and only “LEE” or Lee Quinoines from NYC, one of my favorite artists of all time, a pioneer in Graf styles, and the subject of the 80s film Wild Style.
Who remembers Lee? Who has not heard of him? Comment below
So, anyone doing inktober this year? If you’re not hip, its an art challenge to stretch out your ink (marker, brush, pen) skills and although there are art prompts officially you can do your own theme: political, women, activists, musicians, typography, etc. Here are some from last year. My focus was Latinxs/Hispanics/Raza/ Indigenous folks and some political issues. You can see my past drawings of POC, Characters, etc here http://investigateconversateillustrate.blogspot.com/search… AND if you want the official 2018 prompt go here: https://inktober.com/rules/
Inktober is done! Didn’t make it to 31, but def worked out the ink muscle. This year and last year I focused on indigenous folks from North and South America, and the Carribean. If you like, you can purchase the originals , each one for $60. Or if u prefer a print, lemme know $20. Free shipping. Peep the link in my bio for more originals. My email is email@example.com . Since some of the drawings touch on a person or group involved in social justice , I would gladly make a donation to a suggested organization or cause. Thx everyone for participating. 1 Love.
