New direction, new beginnings.
Taking over the world, one page at a time.
Are you all hanging in there?
Soooooo I started my last newsletter (many months ago, back in January) hopeful that 2021 would treat us more kindly than 2020 did. That seems to be going poorly so far, but let's look at the bright side of life... and by that I mean comics!
I have so many great projects coming out that I have wanted to talk to you about for so long but for now let me tell you about BUCKHEAD.
BOOM! Studios and the awesome Shobo Coker (you know him from “Outcasts of Jupiter”) trusted me with the beautiful Afrofuturistic series BUCKHEAD. Honestly, I can't begin to describe how unbelievable it is to me that I get the chance to work in something that amazing along side such wonderful people.
The story follows young Toba in an adventure in a sleepy U.S. town where nothing is as it seems and ancient Nigerian Gods are lurking around the neighborhood.
This book has it all! It's scary, it's sweet, it's unpredictable, it's (for lack of a better term) astounding.
I am learning a lot about the Nigerian culture and mythology while researching for this comic and I am trying to fit as much as possible in the pages of BUCKHEAD, which makes the whole process so much more interesting.
All Drawn and no Brains.
Here are some more stuff relating to BUCKHEAD in case you didn't quite grasp my levels of excitement for this project yet. Some character designs:
I was thrilled to find out that two books that i did some art on them are nominated for Ringo awards!
This one should stay between us for now but Robbie Thompson and I are talking about doing a Y.A. Horror book (My cup of tea, if there ever was one).
Any of you following me on my social media have probably noticed that I have been trying something new and I'm very pleased with it ( this type of contentment usually doesn't last for more than a fleeting second, but I cherish it while it does).
Also, I’m trying to setup a store for prints, if anyone knows anything about how and where to do it, please send me some info!
Back from the Read.
