Illustrator/Creative Director/Artist/Fashion Designer and all-around Creative Guru, Sid Blaize sat down with the team at The Bklyn Combine to share some wisdom on his creative process. He also listened to some of our challenges in creating a comic book.
Mr. Blaize has had a long career as an illustrator/artist in the world of fashion and has a rich history. He has worked with many brands like the NBA, NFL, and MLB to name a few. He currently has the Sid Blaize Collection of custom apparel with his one-of-a-kind designs and hand-painted masterpieces emblazoned on the backs of these unique jackets (see Bruce Lee motorcycle jacket).

Thank you all and we keep in touch~
Mentor Phillip Shung and his team of illmatic illustrators have a new plan for this year’s Art Ready exhibition.
This special ops team consists of Olga, Jayson, Addis, and Peter as well as a few of The Bklyn Combine’s contributing interns. The project is a comic book that will showcase the illustration/artistic skills of each student.
So far, the art is looking quite amazing. We cannot wait to share our finished book with the group.
We did wire drawings on panels and now are making hand casts with cement, plaster and plaster wrap. Sculpture making is fun and messy 😀
