J Dilla passed away on the morning of February 10th, 2006 at the age of 32. He had suffered for over three years with an incurable blood disease, and had also been diagnosed with lupus. He left behind a body of work which will be loved and rediscovered for years to come.

Dilla LOVED donuts, so much so that he named his final album after them. Starting with the month of February, once a month, I’ll be posting a series of donut illustrations that I’ve been working on for a year or so now, each one representing a different album in which the late great beat-smith produced, and will be posting them here.
This project, #DONUTSFOREVER, is my tribute to the legacy of a man whose work sparked my love affair with music, almost 15 years ago.
Feel free to download this teaser poster or purchase a high quality print here.
