When The Beat Was Born: DJ Kool Herc and the Creation of Hip Hop is officially available today! Written by Laban Carrick Hill and illustrated by myself, this children’s book follows the life of DJ Kool Herc and the birth of hip-hop culture. This is my first children’s book so it’s exciting for me to see the product in its final form. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy, you can find it at various retailers including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can also find more information about the book on MacMillan’s website.
I'm really upset this has not gotten alot of views. I'm going to have to look for this book now.
Thanks! It's floating around... Seen it in stock at some stores but not on display. Easy to find online, though.
Nice work, did you did the typographic work or just the illustration? because Illustration and text work perfectly together.
I really like that even when working digitally your stuff still has a sense of texture.
