FMWJ's Presents J.Bizness 3 Piece Series
For this album artwork, I wanted to incorporate a digital illustration that worked within the templated design of the J.Bizness 3 Piece Series. Starting with a great close up shot of J.Bizness by photographer Kate Romero
, I created the illustration entirely in PhotoShop using a Wacom drawing tablet.
Once the illustration was complete, I did the graphic design layout for the front and the back. I wanted to utilize the open white negative space to really make the design elements stand out.

Skeem Price and DJ Buddy ‘Hazard Mixtape’
, owner of Illregular Music Collective decided to manage artist Skeem Price
's 'Hazard Mixtape' project, he called upon DJ Buddy
. J.Bizness had teamed up with DJ Buddy & 5AP
in 2009 to collaboratively produce the 'Rock Candy Mixtape
' . Familiar with the 5AP production quality, Skeem Price reached out to me on twitter for his 'Hazard Mixtape' artwork. Being a fan of his work myself, ('Rock Candy' Mixtape and 'Still Never Rains
' by Trek Life
), I was hyped to begin work for the illustration & design.
Having heard the tracks pre-mix, I caught a glimpse of the graphic versus and grimey beats that the artwork needed to reflect. Skeem Price is confrontational poet who happens to be from a neighboring city Pomona which borders the Los Angeles & San Bernadino Counties. The design needed to capture the energy of the music and Skeem's image needed to be as precise as his deliveries.

Trek Life and J.Bizness ‘Rhymes Within Reason EP’
West Covina’s Trek Life and J.Bizness from Ontario has released their EP entitled ‘Rhymes Within Reason.’ This seven track extended play featured a cast of fellow emcees like Oddisee, Audio Live, Skeem Price, Maestro Montana, and Richard Wright. Along with J.Bizness hypnotic beats graces vocals by Raygen Fykes and Wyann Vaughn. This EP is an echo of the lost arts in hip hop. The art of dee jaying is also in display on this album with Tommy Blak, LD, JBr05ki & DJ Buddy all executing brilliant cuts. Visually we wanted to capture the unique sound with a human touch for the artwork of this record. After a day taking photos at Trek’s studio, I sketched out a few of the good photos with ink. I used those drawings along with a great Trek Life logo courtesy of Acrylick, and this is how it came together.
