Family tree of hip hop
Hip Hop Family Tree Series by Ed Piskor
Ed Piskor, creator of Hip Hop Family Tree which debuted right here at Boing Boing shared with us some of the ancient artistic tools that inspires his unique technique. While drawing a splendid Happy Mutant, he takes us through his "war chest": zip-a-tone sheets, letraset, a Leroy lettering gadget, risography, and the immortal spirit of great cartooning. He also muses on what it's like to teach students who know every corner of a Wacom tablet, but recoil in horror when the only undo level is a splodge of white-out. Enjoy the minute visit to his studio! And keep an eye out for the Happy Mutant you see below—we'll be auctioning them for a good cause soon. Read the rest. Read the rest of the Hip Hop Family Tree comics!
Preview: Hip Hop Family Tree Book 4 and box set
The large-format volume is strictly a chronicle, presenting the major figures in hip-hop as they appear and make their impressions on the music. Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats. To tell this story in any language would be a challenge; to tell it in the language of comics feels like a magical summoning. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
