For any who can recall the 1998 DMX iconic Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood album cover, it might surprise a few to know just how much effort went into producing such a simple and visceral image. As part of his “Create Power Portraits” class for Skillshare, Jonathan Mannion talks about the extensive research – including African voodoo and color theory – that culminated in the final shoot where the Ruff Ryder was faced with Mannion, the camera crew, and 60 gallons of blood in a bathtub. If not for the honest depiction of Mannion’s passionate commitment to his work, it’s definitely worth a watch for his humorous and surprisingly accurate reproduction of DMX’s trademark gravelly speech.
