Interview with the Illustrator. Artist/DJ, Loganic.
Last night, I dropped by the studio of one Christopher Logan, A.K.A. Loganic, to acquire my fix of his awesome talents. in addition to being a gifted visual artist, whose work is growing in scope and exposure, he is also a very popular DJ whose selections constantly have people trainspotting his records. where the two converge is an oscillation between DJ sets with a painters aesthetic for layering and abstraction and paintings with the motions, intensity and space of a great piece of music. for one artist to be a master of both is awe inspiring to behold, not to mention being able to know him! Loganic is a deep cat.
Here he explains his process for the design and we get to witness a bit of his process. I can tell you, to watch this being birthed on paper through successive layers of pencil, marker and white out (!?!) was amazing.
This will be included in the beatjazz supporter pack which will also include
- A Beatjazz mix CD-you can select any tracks from any of my posted collections at music.onyx-ashanti.com and I will create a custom DJ mix just for you and give you a shout out in the mix as well!
- a 3d printed beatjazz keychain that i will print from my own secret lab
- The Beatjazz system Loganic designed T-shirt in various colors and sizes.
- The poster will incorporate a high resolution print of the design that will be printed on the T-shirts so you can appreciate the fine details.
- the Loganic designed stencil set
From the very beginning of the first campaign, I have depended on Loganics vast artistic knowledge to realize the things i see in my head. he some how manages, from my ramblings and my exceptionally unsophisticated drawings, to create something of beauty and precision so it was obvious that he would be the cat to create the t-shirt and the poster for the campaign. You can check out some of his work at www.loganiclife.blog.com
