JUDGE GARNISHES ALLEN IVERSON’S WAGES FOR GEORGIA JEWELER
Jan 2012 31

According to TMZ.com, A Georgia judge has garnished Allen Iverson‘s earnings so that he can repay a 6-figure debt to a Georgia jeweler. According to court papers, Iverson was sued back in 2010 for allegedly stiffing Aydin & Company Jewelers on a $375k bill. A.I. reportedly never responded to the suit, so a default judgment was issued in favor of the jewerly store — allowing them to collect $859,896.46 for the bling, court costs, interest and attorneys fees. But, A.I. still didn’t pay, so earlier this month, the judge ordered that the store recoup their loss directly from Iverson’s Wells Fargo bank.

BLEU DAVINCI THINKS JEEZY IS USING THE BMF NAME IN VAIN
Jan 2012 31

BMF’s Bleu Davinci is still airing out his issues with Young Jeezy — saying that the rap star in using the BMF name in vain and isn’t too happy that he hasn’t given any money for a appelate lawyer for BMF leader Big Meech. In an NYC radio interview, Bleu said, “The issue now is the man’s running around, using Meech’s name like it’s like that and that little thing that Meech did on the tape for him that he keep playing on repeat, but from 2009 he ain’t doing what he supposed to do. What about this appellate lawyer? Yeah, he ain’t doing what he supposed to do, period.”

He continued, “Exactly. I mean, he won’t do nothing, period. I just talked to the big homie [Meech] recently and he said it’s crazy that the rapper that was connected with the Fam that ended up having much success – he’s doing his thing, he’s really in a position to make a difference in Meech’s life right now – he ain’t really stepping up to the plate right now.”

Davinci — who just came home last year from serving four years in prison on conspiracy with intent to distribute drugs, added, “It’s crazy that I gotta come home, rebuild this BMF brand from ground zero and do it all on my own, when we got somebody running around and still saying he love [Meech], he got him 100% and all that. It’s easy for him to say, ‘Let me cut this check and make sure dude is alright.’ At the end of the day, the selfishness sticks in, the Hollywood, the lights and the cameras – it just blurs people’s vision sometime.”

  • Jeezy was recently in an NYC radio interview, saying that he has a solid relationship with Meech, DaVinci said it’s not true. Bleu said that he has reached out to Jeezy, but Jeezy never called him back and changed his number upon initially speaking to him.
  • Bleu said that he still has love for Jeezy, but wants him to do the right thing. He said, “At the end of day, we all love Jeezy, man. I ain’t gonna say I hate the man or nothing like that but keep it honest, keep it real.”

IAA SPOTLIGHT: GET TO KNOW GRAPHIC DESIGNER –  MICHAEL DARDEN
Jan 2012 31

IAA:  Where did your interest in graphic designing begin?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  My interest with graphic design began at Community College of Philadelphia. I started taking art classes there in 2001 and I immediately enjoyed being in an artistic environment. After about a year I talked to my professors and various art students about different art majors and the only major that struck my interest was graphic design. I enjoyed learning about the other studies of art such as painting, sculpture, and drawing but graphic design was challenging and competitive which is how I am.

IAA:  How do you find your inspiration?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  Pablo Picasso was always my favorite artist and he also inspired me because of his abstract expressionism. My artistic style is abstract and I enjoy being unique and original which was Picasso’s gift.

IAA:  What tools are in your designer’s toolbox that would be tough to live without? Software, apps, hardware, books, or otherwise?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  I design most of my work with the adobe illustrator program and it’s very beneficial for the creation of my work. I also read various design magazines and computer books focusing on the latest designs and software information.

IAA:  Name some of the past and current projects you are working on?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  One of my favorite projects that I worked on was the Whooping Crane dripping with oil. I have an interest in birds and my professor at the time really liked it too and it recommended that I submit it into an art exhibition at the Crane Art Gallery in Northern Liberty. Recently I’ve been working on famous graphic faces of powerful black icons and other ethnic leaders and icons such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Bob Marley, Shirley Chisholm and Biggie to just name a few.

IAA:  Do you feel that it’s important for someone to be passionate about art in order to be successful in the field?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  I feel that it definitely helps to be passionate about art or any other profession that one pursues because it makes your work experience more joyful and it doesn’t seem like work. A person has to be passionate about art if they want to be successful because it’s an internal talent.

IAA:  How would you describe your style?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  I have an abstract style and a lot of my art pieces are various shapes that create an image.

IAA:  What are some of your personal and/or professional goals for the future?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  Some of my personal and professional goals for the future include expanding my environmental clothing line, which consists of images that focus on deforestation, oil spills, endangered animals, smog, and other environmental issues. I also want to continue increasing my artistic skills in graphic design.

IAA:  Where can fans of your work see your portfolio and how can you be contacted?

MICHAEL DARDEN:  Fans can see my artwork from my environmental clothing line at www.planetees.biz . And if anyone wants to order any shirts they can contact me by email at mdy23d@aol.com 215-341-0060 or 215-242-5829
