Daily Spitpaint

I recently discovered this group on facebook and it has been like a shot of adrenaline to my life. You’ll find so many artist of high skill level and masters of the craft creating and posting some wonderful pieces on a daily basis. It’s like a school in some ways that is free for anyone of any experience level to join. It’s got 27,580 members and growing fast. Since I joined in early January the group has grown by like 5,000 members.

The way it works is each day you’ll find 4 new topics posted on their page and you only have 30 minutes to complete the piece. Now, no one is going to come around giving you trouble to prove it, but it’s a simple test of self accomplishment that requires a sense of honor and shamelessness to be a part of. This is why it has attracted so many awesome artist. Speed-painting is synonymous with skill and It definitely takes a lot of skill to do what some of these guys are doing in 30 minutes.

Find me on Facebook.com/LolosArt to see what I’ll be posting next.

Here are my first 6 Daily Spitpaints:

Street Khemestry Interview

Happy New Years everyone! 2014 is here and to start it off here is an interview with Street Khemistry Magazine. They seem to mostly cover Hip Hop but only recently started an art section since they launched the site 3 years ago. I must admit, it’s a bit of a strange fit for my scifi/fantasy themes, but it’s pretty cool to be covered alongside Dame Dash and Lupe Fiasco. Go have a look and be sure to come back often. I intend to post more work on a more frequent basis starting now. Enjoy 2014!

Ponte Sensato

Listen to this song and tell me that it doesn’t make you just dance, I dare you. That voice you hear there is my dear cousin, Chris Hierro, from Los Gambinos. One most impressive singer/song writer that dabbles in oh so many genres of music, it’s amazing. When given the chance to work with Sensato, a Dominican rapper who is hitting the scene hard by Pitbull’s side, he chose to present an unexpected classic urban salsa song in “Ponte Sensato”. Pitbull’s protege loves the song so much that it is being released in his new album, “We Ain’t Even Supposed 2 B Here”, as the first single. It’ll definitely make for one hot summer track. Actually, play “Ponte Sensato” and you tell me through twitter @LolosArt what you think.

Thanks to Chris I got to make some fun art for the single. To match the vibe of the song I made sure to give them that 70′s gansta swag.
