Stop Motion Drawing 2: Sugar Skull by Paul Alexander Thornton

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , on June 13, 2010 by prolifik1

As an artist, a lot of us are so caught up these days with technology. Like myself, everything has been digital now when it comes to any art/graphic projects. Everything I do these days is either done on Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator or simply animated on Autodesk Maya.

Our artistic skill obviously originated from a form of traditional drawing. From crayons, markers, pens, and pencils, I obviously started out with traditional hand drawings as a kid.

I’m at a point that I don’t think I’ve hand drawn anything on paper with a pencil in years, basically back in college. In my opinion, it doesn’t hurt to keep our skills updated every now and then by putting it down on paper. It just goes to show how everything these days are technologically related with everything we do in our daily lives.

UK Artist, Paul Alexander Thornton inspires and reminds me to never forget my roots.

Dope skills! I appreciate anyone who has great drawing skills!

Nike “Air Attack” Pack: Nike Maxim 1

Posted in Kicks with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2010 by prolifik1

Pink is a bit too loud for me, probably not my steez as a choice of clothing, but these look hot! This specific Nike shoe incorporates many of Nike’s signature technologies including “Flywire” as well as reducing the shoe’s original weight by 2/3rds. This is part of Nike’s arsenal of the “Air Attack” pack which is set to release later this month.
