Hip Hop, 1 - 2, and you don't stop!

A love letter to the music/art form I've gotten so much from. More often than not, I'm listening to De La Soul, The Roots or stuff like that. I love that sort of positive intelligent form of Hip Hop and it's old school roots. The big gold chains and the track suits, a time when it wasn't really about boasting about jewelry but battle rhymes that validated what you stand for. I don't know, it's hard for me to express it, but I love it and so here it is.

DoD Pirates! Combining themes is one of my favorite things!

Dias De Los Muertos and Pirates! something I wanted to do and will probably do another version since I like it so much, maybe with just the Captain(the lovely lady at the top). But I like this one a lot, I wanted to do one with this kind of hierarchy and everyone looking ready for action, and I like animal Dias De Los Muertos Pirates. So many paintings I want to do with these characters!!
