In my line of work I come across a lot of portfolios and search for illustrators all the time, but very few stand out. The work of Dale Edwin Murray caught my eye for very predictable reasons: his illustrations of rappers are just fun to look at. Done as a personal project, Murray's graphically depicted portraits of select members of hip hop's pantheon slants towards a retroriffic early-1960s vibe that I am admittedly a sucker for. — Brent Rollins
