Earmint



I received an e-mail from a young guy who calls himself, "Earmint." He's a white rapper type dude who lays down some heavy ass beats. He had a proposition for me. He was broke, had no money but wanted to know if I could do some album art for him. He was inviting some friends and artists to tamper with a drawing he had of himself. I checked out his website and liked what I saw, especially how he looked. Check him out here. So I said yes. Plus it would make for a good blog entry. I posted the b&w drawing he sent to me,(it's the one on the bottom). Of course I had to elaborate on his sketch. I turned the name underneath into a medalion. I found another photo of him I liked so I drew that as a second head. I did that because I wanted to draw my own version of him too. It was a fun little assignment and I'm pleased how it came out. I'm sure the little freak is thrilled too.

Two heads are better than one.
