After Midnight

Dope LA based painter and former grafitti artist, Steven Lopez recently added Amerykahn Promise to his collection of the After Midnight Series featuring Erykah Badu (who just had a baby and is still looking flyer than ever). The After Midnight Series, which includes pieces featuring India.Arie, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan and more, the amazing women of soul will be available at midnight on April 15, 2009.

Lopez has been working as an artist for over 10 years and is constantly inspired by his interactions with people, culture, and music. And of course, that's my favorite thing about the piece. This piece exemplifies art recognizing art, paying tribute to a genre apart from your own.

UPDATE: VIDEO OF Ms. Badu signing these amazing prints


  1. I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY dig this. If I were rich I'd definitely cop that one of Badu.

    Did you know Badu herself paints? shit is ill on her myspace page.
