The J Dilla Coloring Book

Usually when I post source material for things I’m working on they are paintings and such. This time, they’re different versions of a drawing I did of beloved Hip Hop Martyr Jay Dilla, that I then used as a coloring book. The color patterns used in each have more to do with how they’ll be used in the final piece than what looks good in each individually. The day Glo one is for use as a hilight while some of the darkers versions will be used as Shadows. Hopefully the final collage of J Dilla will be a fitting tribute to his own sampling techniques. I’ve been working on this for a year though, so be patient.
