Yo, I’ve been pretty bad at keeping up on my own site which is counter productive. I’m feeling better about myself as an artist and, I’m getting to work with cool writers and other folks that share my passion for creativity. I feel like I’ve been awakened! With these K.C. Tranzmissions I think I have a new outlook on the possible future of comix and media. In fact, K.C. wanted to drop some thoughts about me so I let her upload an mp3 on how she felt about this new creative endeavour. You can check it out:
I’m working with my writing partner David Crispino, to finish this Amazon comic. The first issue is done in the sense that the inking and artwork has been completed. We still need to get the dialogue and composition together before its set in stone.
I’m actually working with a friend I met through Ulises Fariñas of Amazing Forest and Judge Dredd Fame. Check out his comics you won’t be sorry. His name is Derick Skuds Mckinley Jones and he has an awesome body work that is truely delicious to tap into, so you must do that and remember that name. I have two projects I want to work with him with. First is the Black Mix comic that will be awesome and hitting the streets for you all to dig into. The Second is a weird , throwback , good vs evil story, that starts in Vietnam in the 60’s and ends in the mid 70’s. It has John Lennon in it and he’s kicking demon’s asses. The main character is a cursed indian demon killer named Geis. Here’s some sketches.
I’m finishing up Afrofuturist 2 and 1/2 which really should be 3, but I wanna squeeze in more stories. Long story short, Afrofuturist 3 is coming. Also I’m doing a lot of Afofuturist Stickers, and atleast a free comic to have ready.
Black Dayz 8 is on the grill as well as this book I wanted wrap up called Brawler. It might be a printed edition or I might just throw it online, I haven’t decided. I put out two free comix called Inkblot over the years ad it had a blaxploitation/street fighter story in it called Curb Stomp. So I wanted to just finish that off, I thought it was groovy, and I felt inspired.
I’ve been sketching up a storm lately. I was drawing archery characters, and also I brought back my homie Kid Sunday, from my early 20’s comix scrounging days.
Time flies when your making art. Practice makes Perfect. Will post more often. Yessir…
Ok yo, I’m super excited to be tabling with my homie from way back Melody Often for East Coast Comic Con! Also, I’ve been working on a ton of comics and narratives that will blow ur mind ! check it!
more to come, works in progress. I’m not much of a blogger but, I’ll try my best to update as much as I can.
As I get better in knowing how to structure out a proper narrative, I have a chance to manipulate to suit my own tastes and style. I’ve always enjoyed the way a Ray Bradbury tale grasped you and keeps you in suspense with well put together characters that interact with each other in awesome ways. I also like the tales told by Philip K Dick. The paranoia, and cleverness. I’ve been studying the works of L.B. Cole. Color wise. Amazing!! He took the comic medium to another lever by applying the right swatches to the job. I’m interested in getting one of his books off of amazon.
I have a few conventions i’m going to. East Coast Comicon, Pix, EBACC, and maybe Maine Comic expo. I’ll post my schedule up soon.
I’m also finally going to have my online store together for buying my books. I think I’ll be using Gumroad. More on that soon.
Been a while since I’ve updated this site! I’ve got quite a few good things coming on strong! I have a comic show coming up with
Specs Wizard, Jacob Dixon, and Sir Froderick in Seattle called “col.li.sion“! I’ll have a ton of stuff there! Here are pics of the posters
I’m finishing up on the Afrofuturist 2! All the inks are done I just have to letter and color. Black Dayz 7 is in the works, but remember, issue 8 and 9 will be an all Wargirl issue, so don’t look for the regulars in that book. they’ll be back for the amazing ISSUE 10!! (maybe I should do it in color). Also, I’m working on an alternative manga title for Oni Press since the opened up their submission box for the next couple months (big mistake! j/k!). All I can tell you right now is it’s called MISO INK. My lips are shut on the rest. So imma get back to the lab, and will try to update this page as often as possible.
Man I had a blast at Short Run, Seattle! it all started when I touched down and met up with my pal Wiz and the gang from Vermillion. My new home away from home and hang out in Seattle, you can check it out here. So we caught up and after a few drinks (and tokes) and jokes, I set out to my airbnb spot that I was to be staying. Fortunately, I won’t be staying in that spot again because it was super cold, the owners seemed dazed and confused, and it was hell getting in there the first time since their lock system didn’t seem to be working. Total flop house level. Anyways, I made it to Short Run, and met some cool folks, and esteemed comic peers which is always a good thing. I sold out of my book the Afrofuturist, and got into a deep convo about afrofuturism with the publisher of Pork newspaper. He was maaad cool. After that was done I headed to Vermillion, dropped some dope beats on the 1 and 2’s chilled and talked with the Lo-Fly crew. I was so tired from the plane and chilling I slept all Sunday which was ok cuz I’m gonna be back anyways every chance I get. Monday I was set to head back to the east coast, dealt with a bitchy baggage counter person (what’s with these self righteous, overly opinionated, drab, tarts who think their shits don’t stink??),and after a cramped flight landed back in DC. I already wish I was back in Seattle LOL. Oh well at least there’s Baltimore! New books and art and beats and commix coming soon homies!
