Last Night I had this idea… So, when I got up I busted out the camera took the picture… and it sucked. Which I am glad it did. Becasue, then while I was in the shower I came up with this one.

This picture is not stock art.

image looks really cool. Pills and Elvis were to go. I don’t think I will get anything for for a week or so school is sort of nuts and I’ll be in vegas for NAB this weekend.. woot woot. Need to finish off the image for lottery that I started.

I am going to have to print th two images up and pin them up all over my room to spark something here… man.. hmmmm, I think it will come to me after a nice night of drinking.

Bubba Hotep was a good movie…

Beerad

oh man bubba hotep was great Elvis and a Black JFK! Can’t go wrong

Like the image, it all works well together. Maybe the dropshadows have to much depth, but then again it makes it look surreal…

nice work

Can I get a little insight into what you guys are thinking with this theme? How did it come about?

lostinbrooklyn

Was BeerAd’s idea…I think he went more literal on the initial foray. I chose the more abstract. I’m curious to see if he pick’s up on the Elvis thematic (taken initiacially from his pill theme), goe’s the Brand route or somewhere in between.

Me, I see the Big E as a brand icon and all others as franchises…though Eddie Powers kicks ass!

That’s my 2 cents…BeerAd?

Eddie’s site

lostinbrooklyn

;)

Beerad

Sorry man, last week of school here. Have to finish up all this stuff first. Thanks for waiting.

Beerad

Wasn’t sure how to bring Elvis into this. But I did keep with the photos and I felt these color completed my first image.

bererad, very nice, long awaited response, though I am not one to talk. I have been out-of-it for several months…is it?

OK, so I have been MIA for a while…long while…reno’ing our new home or rather managing it & such. That and a very busy studio this summer has kept me away from more pleasurable “leisure” activities. No excuses but check this out, and you’ll see why…

my 24/7 brand

Back atcha as soon as I can, love the photos, yours?

Beerad

lostinbrooklyn, no hurry here. I wish the picture where mine. I had pretty much a free day at work today and thought I could knock out a designologue image. So the pictures at not mine, I had been planing this image for awhile and had different photos in mind. But you talk what you can get when it comes down to it

lostinbrooklyn

OK, long time coming…and I still have than tartan challenge, but this seemed way too timely …and even way too appropriate. BeerAd, comments, beatch!

R.I.P. Rick James, you will be forgotten, super freak, but loved…gonna funk da’ place up for y’all.

I’m Rick James, Bitch! And I’m dead.

Beerad

lostinbrooklyn, I know you are short on time and this image feels rushed, Back on the music huh…

lostinbrooklyn

More of a lift/direct pick up of your last coffee post with a twist to Mr. James’ untimely passing on a nite with too much work, little sleep and a few drinks behind me. While it’s contextual, I agree a bit rushed. Just caught up in the madness and the sorrow of the the Super Freak kickin’ on us all. And yes, back to music. It’s what I do & live for. Though I must say, outside of a few MP3’s, we don’t seem to have a Rick James LP or CD floating in our collection…hmmmm. Anyway, upto you. Keep the music theme alive, or the photo or go off another way. —Thanks.
