+ Crash course — r/hiphopheads

I first learned to code by googling stuff like "website make an image rotate forever". There were long nights spent giddy with wonder at what I could accomplish with (sloppy) html/css/jQuery, while during the day I wrote educational content for the Denver Art Museum's digital platforms.

My first websites supported DIY releases by NYC rappers and producers who were just starting out, like me. We were all flying by the seat of our pants, dropping mp3 zip files and merch from scrappy animated websites I coded by hand, and getting yelled at on Reddit when the download links stopped working from high volume (and I discovered Cloudflare out of sheer necessity). In addition to Javascript, I had to learn the ins and outs of DNS configuration, how to work with clients, and that everything is figure-out-able.

As the artists got signed and I somehow became a full-time Software Engineer™, these early sites got buried under record label management and my newfound awareness of SPAs. Now I dig them up like an archaeologist thrilled by dusty shards of clay.

Some personal sketches that were also made during this time:
