I’ve tried writing something profound about what’s happening to our young brothers and sisters, but I can’t seem to ARTiculate the right words to express the levels of emotions that I feel for the families and communities this keeps happening in. Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo, John Bell, John Crawford, Ezell Ford; just too name a few, we can not allow these men to be forgotten, and that is exactly what the media and the powers that be want, for us to forget.

Colorfully Outspoken…

Well, we are half way through January, and I’m finally getting to my first post of the new year! Well Happy 2014, and here we go! I’ve been living in DC – well Maryland actually – for the past year, and well I am beginning to really enjoy it. I’ve made some great connections, my art is blossoming, and I’m just ready to make a name for myself. With that all being said, one of the connections I’ve made has blessed me with some great little illustration gigs, which I have really been enjoying. This piece is for a Hip-Hop/Spoken Word cypher happening later this month in DC.

The Self Portrait… it has become one of the most annoying epidemics of the world-wide web. Don’t get me wrong, I like looking, yeah I think you’re cute, but seriously how many pictures of yourself do you really need to have on your profile pages? ┬áReally how many pics can you take in the bathroom mirror? It’s made us narcissistic to a nauseating point… Anyway, enough ranting and trolling from me, just enjoy the work.

4 Way Calling…

While taking a slight break from my work, to watch the kids full time, while my wife is out of town for a week on business, I played around with some of my older works. I had done enough works with girls and phones (generic looking iPhones mostly), and the four panel structure has been friendly to me lately. So while I had a moment between naps, which was hard to come by with a 4 year-old and a 7 month old, but was able to make this 4 way long distance call!
