He was THE founding creative director for Def Jam. He created The Drawing Board. He created LOTS of Beasties images (e.g., Hello Nasty). He designed logos for Maroon 5, Foo Fighters, etc. He was commissioned by Adidas to do the Beasties track suits / shoes, and the Muhammed Ali ones. He’s done designs for Burton, Jan Sport. He designed the hip hop wing of EMP Seattle. He designed the MoMA Music 2.0 exhibition. His work inaugurated and is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Museum of African American Culture and History. He has been working for the past five years on murals and canvases all over North America. His new collage works are on display at major galleries in major cities.
I could go on and on...
