I have been an “absentee blogger,” so I figured it was long overdue to give a little update on what’s been going down over the past few months.

I’ve been recharging and rethinking the path forward for 2012. I don’t want to reveal too much before the time is right, but I promise it’ll all be revealed in due time.

In the meantime, let me show you a lil’ something I’ve been working on. Since we’re closer to a release date, I think it’s okay to reveal this now.

My good friend, Artemis…er…Ardamus (gotta get the MC name right) asked me to work on the album art for his upcoming release, The Glass is Half Full of…

Ardamus wanted a style reminiscent of old Blue Note albums—a sort of wink and nod—without being a carbon copy. He had 3 singles to release prior to the album dropping, but wanted them in the same vein without being identical to the album art.

Additionally, we did a variation on these for the instrumental versions of the singles.

If you dig “the hip-hop music” the kids these days are into, you should check it out. Glad to say that even if he wasn’t one of my best friends, I’d listen to his music. If you want to support the DMV and indie hip-hop, pick it up.

I’m Not the One and Wishin’ That Was Me are out now, while Quite Fresh drops on Valentine’s Day.

The full length The Glass is Half Full of… album drops on February 28. I’ll show some interior album art after the album drops.

This was a fun project to work on, I wish my friend Ardamus much success with this release. I think it’s one of his best. I also appreciate him being an awesome client.

If only it was always this easy…
