Rapper Big Pooh – FreeBasin’ (Artwork)

Shoutouts to Pooh & Dho, as the 3 of us put our minds together to create the new artwork for Pooh’s next single. The joint is called “FreeBasin'” and it features the very talented, Carlitta Durand. As far as the cover goes, the style coincides with what we came up with for “Zone Out,” his last leak. When Pooh hit me up & told me the title to the this joint, I thought he was gonna ask for some crazy imagery, like people cooking up spoons, etc. Hahaha, but he wanted the exact opposite. He was looking to play off of the sport of Base Jumping. Right then & there, I know that with the right imagery, it was going to be a wrap. Dho found the pic, and blao! Here it is. So check back next week, as I post the link to the actual single, and stay tuned cuz I have signed on to create the artwork for Pooh’s next mixtape & official release, as well as their next tour flyer…


Alternate Designs for the Value Menu Tour

When Dho initially hit me up about doing the flyer, we talked about a couple different ideas. His suggestion, which ended up being used, was the idea to replicate a McDonald’s menu. At first, I wanted to make an old school-looking drive thru menu, but I nixed that idea after not finding the appropriate imagery. But after creating Dho’s idea, I put together the paper bag joints. These were supposed to look like the McDonald’s to-go bags like the ones below…

Even though they didn’t pick either one of these, I thought they turned out dope & I really wanted to share them with the world. Most of the time, I save designs that don’t get picked, because they can easily be used again by changing the text or picture, but for some reason, I don’t see myself doing a lot of McDonalds-inspired flyers in the future. & if I do, I guess it’s back to the drawing board…

If you are on the west coast, make sure you check out one of these shows. They are guaranteed to be bonkers…
