My tribute to some of the best known hip hop artists of the West Coast, primarily in Southern California.  It’s just more proper that I created these in coinciding with the August release of “Straight Outta Compton” which brought back some good old memories of this old beats and tunes I enjoyed back in middle and high school.  It’s shame hip hop doesn’t sound like it used to.

I created this on one long piece of board made out of 12 sheets of mix media paper taped together.  I know there’s a lot of rap artists out there but these 12 are the ones I’m most familiar with.  Maybe someday I’ll make another win the other rappers I’ve missed.  The rappers here from left to right are ( in case you don’t recognize them though I did put subtle hints on some of them): WARREN G, EAZY E, ICE CUBE, SNOOP DOGG, DR. DRE, TUPAC, ICE T, CYPRESS HILL, MYSTIKAL, XZIBIT, NATE DOGG, COOLIO.

Next I’ll be composing some series of pics for the rappers of East Coast.  Stay tuned…

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
