The Coast is the first listen from Coolwater Set’s debut mini-album, and it’s already making some huge waves having been listened to over 80K times in just a couple days on Soundcloud. The Los Angeles based hip hop group collaborates with prolific producer RAC on The Coast, which also features rising California artist JVZEL. The song’s airy smooth production is certainly not the usual RAC we’re accustomed to. The Coast glides along coolly, a mellow entrancing electronic hip hop track. Cherrytree Records founder and chairman Martin Kierszenbaum says of Coolwater Set’s debut mini-album: “this collection of car speaker-friendly sounds is clearly an homage to the West Coast and showcases Coolwater Set’s passion for chill vibes, hip hop, bounce, low-ride cruising, and blazing late-night beach ciphers.” The Coast is a free download, here. Coolwater Set’s debut EP is on the way.

People who don’t stay down after they fall or are tripped are often trouble makers. Hard to control. Which is the best kind of dangerous possible. They are the artists, innovators, and change-makers.

Good day! I am currently opening up commission slots in pairs. Once I complete a pair of commissions, I will open up two more and so on.

This will give me the ability to schedule time to ensure that any commissions which will be gifts (for birthdays, holidays, etc) get completed in time so you can give a super rad gift! I work full time in the industry so I will do my best to keep you updated on your commission and schedule :) Interested in a commission? Please Email me at: hello(at)arondraws(dot)com

I’m currently finishing up the last commission from the first batch, so I’m opening up slots again :)

Current Prices:

Single Character Cleaned-Up Sketch: $20 (example, example, example)

If you like a style/media I’ve done a particular piece in, let me know and we can figure it out. You can view my art at aronjshay.tumblr.com and arondraws.com

First come, first served. I will be making a waiting list after the slots are filled and working through it. Payment due before I start work, and payment due via PayPal. All commissions delivered digitally. I reserve the right to reject a commission piece and request another option from you if there will be an issue with subject matter. It never hurts to ask me though, so Email me with any questions :)

Thank you kindly! <3
