…recently started drawing a new series of pen and ink portraiture.

When Marla was out here visiting us a few weeks ago, she noticed this old photo of my Grandpa Shady hanging on our wall:

From that photo, she drew this:

And yesterday, I received this mustachioed portrait of yours truly:

Learn more about Marla, and this series of work, here.

Waiting on KB’s mustache next,

…featuring Talib Kweli, right here.

Learn more about Blaqstarr, and his upcoming mixtape, here.

If that track is any indication of what’s to come, I’m excited,

…in this shitty photo I took with my phone (you can click on the image for a larger view), but a huge beehive in our neighborhood fell out of a tree and now there are a million bees everywhere!

My favorite bee is Buzz-Off,

…for recently getting his first (and possibly last) tattoo.

Normally I’d say that getting a tattoo at 18 years old is a terrible idea, but this tattoo has a special meaning behind it.

Our late grandfather, known lovingly by most as Hi-Guy, had the same (for the most part) tattoo of Flower from “Bambi” on his arm. Matthew’s tattoo is a nod to a man we all loved very much.

Great stuff, Matthew. He’d be proud of you… and then he’d make fun of you and call you a knob.

Next thing you know Matthew will be digging in dumpsters,

…on finishing her second half-marathon this past weekend!

There were more people there,

-Shady

Good riddance.

Dumbass doesn’t even begin to describe him,

-Shady

Went out to walk Mr. Fabulous and noticed we got a new dumpster delivered.

When I opened it up I noticed it was completely empty…

…but not for long.

Fab is the first deposit,

-Shady

…looks like, uh… not a tree?

I swear I can even see the outline of a head,
