Over the last 3 years I have popped in and out of the music and art scene to support and work with musicians, photographers, and models local to the scene. These past few fall / winter months have been electric with inspiration and hustle. What better way to close off this year than one last show featuring a handful of my favorite orlando rappers. This time around I worked with graphic designer Ricardo Cruz in the hopes to make a flyer that represented the talent on the show, as well as the brands hosting the event. We brought this project to the "MADHOUSE" to see where we could take this.
Our approach was "ransom letter meets rager!" We began gathering the typical things you might see on the floor of a party after a rager ; Cigarettes, crushed beer cans, bottle caps etc.. We spent two days ripping through magazines hoping to find the perfect letters for the title. In the end a good finished product always comes down to the details. Not everything we gathered was used, but I always think its best to bring in all your ideas, and edit from there.
At the MADHOUSE we lit and shot pics of all of our ideas and then ricardo cruz worked his graphic design magic to add life into this piece! Shout out to Noxcape Studios, TSA Showcase and all of the talent on this flyer, it was our passion for all of you that made making this flyer so much fun!
Over the years of my "figuring it out" artist career I have done many things, and played many roles. After a few years of wearing hats like "make-up artist", "emergency stylist" for sets and models, co-director, and "hype woman" for some of the more timid artist, I began to feel comfortable thinking on my feet. Diving deeper into each indivual aspect of creating a story with a message and meaning, and learning how to respect art for the simplicity and complexity that it is. I have mainly been known as a make-up artist but as I shed that role and take on the role of directing I welcome the many places it might take me. Most recently my mind has manifested an idea about brainwash. The idea that although it seems we have "free will" many sinister things are surrounding us. Infiltrating and seducing our minds on a daily basis.
All i needed at this point were some creative people to help me pull it off..

Without these guys, the ideas I had been writing down and sketching like a mad mind would have been for nothing. Creating a project that everyone felt passionate about was something I had been longing to do . If you havent already, check out the official pics for
