How You Gon’ Act

I believe this is it for 2013. Hopefully in the new year I get comfortable with oils, push acrylics a little more and maybe dive into gouache. I’m looking to do some selling soon. Get rid of a few originals piling up. A nice home would do then some good. Plus what’s the point of creating them of they’re just to sit around in a closet?
It’s been a decent year with you all. I thank you and hope things get better from here.

Your voice coming through the line, you’re not exactly by my side

It has been a fairly good year, in regards to my art at least. I mean I’ve tried a few things, corrected a few things and just drew til I was tired. The good thing is the notice and respect of a few peers. I have been revering the work of a few that say they like my stuff and it really capped this year for me.
It means quite a bit to have people be receptive to my depictions of black men and women. At one time, I didn’t think anyone would. Finding a few blogs and discovering current black contemporary artist really instill some confidence in my direction and sticking to it. I really hope you all enjoyed what I have been showing and can’t wait for next year. Here’s to hoping I’m making something big of all of this. Thank you all and happy holidays.

For years
She Says Really Sweet Shit

Pretty self explanatory. I asked, politely, if I could use her image for an illustration, she politely answered yes. Giving foreword about my work. I took a shining to her words. Then i drew her and in the midst of the illustration thought to myself; Man… I need to do more work with her. SO here is a days worth of work.
The “her” in question is Anarkhy. Thank you again.

I Keep For My People
Graphite, Chalk, and Acrylic on Toned paper
Inspired by the story of the indigenous people of Brazil being ran out of their home so that is can be demolished and replaced by a parking structure for the Olympics; I thought, what if they had a bad ass female lawyer on their side. She would be one of them, but left the pack to be assimilated into everyday society, but knowing where she was from. She would be their hero, deliberating by day and kicking ass, while sleuthing by night.
