I was asked by HYPEBEAST to shoot artist Stephen Palladino (aka Good and Shiddy) for their latest installment of both Pen & Paper and their Essentials series. I checked out his work and really liked his style so I stopped by his studio one evening to do the shoot. Stephen was super chill and amazingly talented. I got to watch him create a few pieces and he could bang out quality pictures in less than a minute with ease! He’s got an artist’s mind for sure, I don’t know how does it.
We arranged some of his work and I shot it for the Pen and Paper, making sure it reflected his cluttered mind so it wasn’t overly setup. We took that same idea and applied it for his essentials as well. He got away with what has to be the messiest essentials to date! Check out some of his work below and follow the links at the bottom to see more.
