every year on September 7th, i draw a portrait to celebrate a man i admire greatly, Sean Daley aka Slug of Atmosphere. he’s one of the wisest, most talented individuals to ever bless the microphone, and continues to prove that hip hop is alive and well through his messages and lyricism.
this year is no different, except that it’s my first time doing it in charcoal. in fact, this is the first time I ever share something that I drew in charcoal, since I’m still pretty new to it. some of it didn’t blend well, some parts faded away, so there’s still a lot I need to learn, before I’m completely comfortable with the medium, but I’m quite pleased with this attempt. the solid blacks are done in Sharpie and certain tiny details are in regular pencil.
