Beat Poetry Contest

It is National Literacy month y'all so this post is in step with that theme. The grassroots charity Keep St. Pete Lit is not only celebrating their 5th year anniversary but is also organizing a Beat Poetry contest. Fifteen dollars per entry with a limit of 3 entries per person for $45. The top five winners will be taking home a Kerouac shirt and having prime time spots live on the mic for reading their work at the next Friends of Jack Kerouac House event hosted by the Flamingo Sports Bar.  Poems are due by October 1st.  This is a hand lettered flyer, touched up on Photoshop, from a fun project collaboration with Maureen McDowell, the Literary Queen of St. Pete and founder of Keep St. Pete Lit. The next Kerouac night event will take place October 20th at 1230 MLK St N in St. Pete, FL. Contest entry link here.

Josef Martinez

Congrats to the attacking talents of Josef Martinez, striker for Atlanta United and the Venezuelan national team.  In his second season with the club, Josef the "Hat Trick King" has broken the single season goal scoring record with many games left in the season. He has netted a total of 28 goals in 26 games. Long may that success continue!  This is a tribute piece that evolved from spoofing different Atlanta advertisements for SoccerCon back in June.  Can you guess which Rap group's billboard this portrait pay homage to? Done with Posca Paint Pens and Micron pens to keep those clean lines. Work in progress, could use some red to tie the whole color scheme of ATLUnited FC together.
