I met Rashid Hill at Summer Jam West.
Tell me about yourself.
I’m a self-taught professional artist. I knew I was going to be serious about art in the 3rd grade when I entered the BET art contest and won second place in the nation. I like to be everywhere from fine art, to abstract, to surreal life, still life, etc. I don’t want to be in one lane. My favorite medium to use is charcoal. I like how you can blend and manipulate charcoal (erase, darken, make highlights, etc.). About a year and a half ago, I started using oil paints. As an artist I’m learning every single day. The last couple of years I have been doing Walking Dead artwork. I get permission from the artist to make prints of my work in exchange for giving them the original piece. I am currently working on a graphic novel.
