  • Evolution of The B-Boy Series 4...
    What's good folks. Series 4 of my Evolution Of The B-Boy Stickerpacks are now up for sale over at www.mark563art.bigcartel.com - In this pack you get stickers of Run (Run DMC), Bushwick Bill (Geto Boys), Posdnuos (De La Soul) and Ice Cube.

    Make sure you check them out, and tell a friend to tell a friend.




  • Evolution Of The B-Boy Series 3 - Coming Soon.
    I know, I know - it's been an absolute age since I updated this blog, but trust me when I say that doesn't mean I haven't been working my socks off on new artwork.

    There's a bunch of freelance work I've done this year that has yet to see the light of day, and hopefully I'll be able to post up some of it soon.

    In the mean time, I've very excited to announce the next run of Evolution Of The B-Boy stickers, which are on their way back from the printers as I type. As with the previous runs, these will be available as packs of 4 x high quality contour-cut stickers (sized between 3.5" and 3.8" tall).

    Once they are ready, I'll let you all know - you'll be able to buy them direct from us over at our bigcartel store: www.mark563art.bigcartel.com , and if you missed out on series 1 or series 2, both are still in stock.

    Here's a sneak peak of what's coming.

    Cheers,


    Mark 563

  • Terror Green...
    What?s good? It?s been an age since I was active here, and feel terrible for not posting more frequently. All the usual excuses apply ? work, family, etc ? but I?ve been meaning to keep this place flowing, so thanks for continuing to check it out.

    With that said, one of the more exciting projects I?ve been working on lately has finally come into fruition. The good folk over at Heavy Jewelz Records got in touch, asking for me to do some illustration for their latest limited vinyl project, and I was over the moon to be contacted.

    The project is for a long awaited vinyl release of the 1995 demo recordings of Brooklyn native, Terror Green. His ?45 Stitches? (featured on this 12?) was one of Stretch & Bobbito?s most requested demo tracks, so you know this is certified.

    Anyways, a while back, the guys hit me up asking for me to illustrate an alternative sticker / cover for the test press vinyl release, and below is what I came up with.

    Check the vector illustration below and let me know what you think.
    You can order the record at http://heavyjewelz.bigcartel.com/but be quick, as this will definitely sell out fast.

    Until next time,

    Mark 563






  • Portrait Of A Masterpiece...
    I know, I know, as ever, it?s been a long time since I updated this blog, and even longer since I last posted an album homage. So, luckily for you guys, I?ve pulled my finger out and knocked up this reworking of NWA affiliate and legend in his own right, The D.O.C?s ?No One Can Do It Better?.

    Check it out below and let me know what you think.

    Cheers,

    Mark 563





  • Sure Shot...
    It?s been an absolute age since I last posted, but trust me, I?ve been nothing but busy working on various pieces of art, including some client work.

    My most recent piece is this Beastie Boys tribute illustration. Check it out below and let me know what you think.

    Also, if you like it, you can buy prints, T-shirts, stickers and all manner of other goodies featuring the illustration (and many of my other works) at Redbubble: http://www.redbubble.com/people/mark563

    All the best,

    Mark 563








  • Something For The Blunted...
    Afternoon all. As ever, life has been crazy, but not so crazy that I didn't have time to flip another new Hip Hop vector illustration.

    Cypress Hill were the first Hip Hop act I ever saw live - way back in the mid '90s, touring their breakthrough smash, 'Black Sunday' - supported by another couple of favourites of mine, Lords of The Underground and Funkdoobiest at Brixton Academy. The show was bonkers, and a great introduction to live Hip Hop.

    Since then, I've seen Cypress Hill perform a number of times, and have been a longterm, loyal fan. To pay my respects, I knocked up this illustration and thought I'd share it with you.


    Check it out below (click to enlarge), and feel free to drop a comment.

    All the best,


    Mark 563




  • That's When Ya Lost...

    Afternoon folks. Here's my latest vector illustration homage to a classic Hip Hop album. For this installment, I flipped the West Coast, Hieroglyphics crew, Souls Of Mischief banger, '93 'Til Infinity'.

    Check it out below, and feel free to let me know what you reckon.

    All the best,

    Mark 563 
     






  • They Want EFX...
    Back again. I know, I know, I don't update this place nearly as much as I would like to, but real life demands too much of my time. Still, hopefully a new post today will keep you guys satisfied for a while.

    This time, I'm back on track with my album illustrations, and this one's a fitting choice, considering the artists in question are about to hit Melbourne for their first ever Australian tour. I've long been a ridiculously crazed Das EFX fan, so felt turning my hand to a sketch of their incredible debut album, 'Dead Serious', was long overdue.

    Make sure you check out their live show if you can, and have a butchers at my illustration below (click to enlarge).

    Cheers,

    Mark 563







i love Quidco GreenWhite
