Eazy-E Study Part I: Stencilz With Attitude

Hey kids, know what you can do with a photo of Eazy-E, a sheet of vellum, and a razor blade? Cut out stencils, that's what. Now, this is new territory for G-Knittah, and I couldn't pull off as much detail as I had hoped (it just doesn't scream "jericurl!" loud enough). The stencil (pictured above) will only be good for a handful of prints (pictured right), so the next step is to make a linocut of the image. The possibilities here are endless: Eazy-E printed on stationery, clothes, and hopefully very soon, completely hand-embroidered onto pillows and book bags.

Jeri curls are overrated. No sun protection. To wit:
