Re: My Boy Basquiat - A True Urban Legend


First one:
"My Boy Basquiat - A True Urban Legend". His wild hair is made from rough outlines of the New York city skyline. From the streets of New York city to gallery walls, here's my tribute to one of my favorite raw graffiti artists Jean-Michel Basquiat. He's drawn like a painting with drip marks and all and hangs above the city that he made his canvas.

Didn't realize at first how much this looks like Tracey Morgan.

Thanks for your comments on the Basquiat design. This was actually my favorite of the designs I did this week, but it didn't seem to go over well with the voters. You just never know which ones will catch the voting public's eye.

But, I do appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Glad you liked it!

ah, very cool!
just making my rounds, checking out your sigs - I really like this, though I've always known basquiat as really colorful. This works really well with the shirt color, I love how you worked the buildings next to his face. another great piece, gmv!

Thanks James! This was my favorite, but maybe some people don't know Basquiat with the wild hair. I think of him in the Warhol days.

There are a couple other entries that I couldn't fit in my sig...but they aren't doing so hot this round.

basquiat with the long hair is the only basquiat I know! A pretty short career, but an incredible artist to read about.

I will definitely look out for your other entries! good luck k!

Great design! I think if people knew Basquait better more would have voted...although I think it is a brilliant design regardless.

The movie about him and warhol is really good too.

Wanted to add that I am disappointed that I will not be able to get this shirt.

Thanks! I really liked it. So, you and I can sport the tshirt in about 60 days. Send me a PM and I'll let you know when I put it on a shirt.

Thanks for the comments. It's encouraging!
