There’s a few artists that have made their way into my life that…well, shit.  How do I say this?  They make me want to quit art.  Not literally.  But in retrospect yes, because every time I come across one of these artists…they completely blow my mind and blow everything I’ve done out of the water.  I’m talking about a gentleman named Robert Longo.  As far as I know, he wrote the book on art and when God was handing out talent circa Day 7, he was busy in heaven’s back room jackin’ skillz like Charles Hamilton did Dilla, but without the media embarrassment… smh.  Anywho, here’s a taste of Rob’s wonderful work using nothing but a stick of charcoal.

They all look like photos, but they ain’t…it’s just Rob slowly taking over the world.

I’ve taken a class or two in charcoal composition and I wouldn’t mind posting a few pics, but I’d be completely embarrassed after the ones shown above.  Plus my drawings aren’t nearly as cool as fighter pilots, great whites, and TITS!  Here’s his website one more time and a quick look at a gallery for the goods.
