1. Art of Whoa: “Gangster Doodles” (GALLERY).

    As you probably realize by this point we have a strong appreciation for creative visual renderings of rap folks . And the works of the artist known simply as Gangster Doodles is no exception. An artist who mostly etches a super wide range of rappers but who has also recreated everyone from MLK to Katt Williams ‘ crazy ass, Gangster Doodles describes his method to his madness on Tumblr :

    trash–boy asked: what materials do you normally use? im looking to get some markers, etc. you’re a huge inspiration dude, i love your style and your subject choices!

    Answer: i use 3X3 post-it notes, sharpies markers (fine tip), cheap hi-lighters (different brands have slightly different shades of the same color), and micron pigma pens. Then I scan all my pics and use photoshop to clean them up. When you scan at a high DPI it brings out all these weird black dots etc. and that aint a good look. Thanks for fuckin with my shit :)

    That’s Gangster.
