I haven't been updated in a while and I've been thinking of making more comics lately, it's the best way to get an idea completed without having to go through the stages of boarding, rough animating ,clean-up, colour, comp ,editing ect. Don't get me wrong -making a comic and colouring it is no simple task either (let alone doing it well) but I'm certainly going to try once I get a story solidified .
I've been trying my hand at drawing in this style recently as warm ups befor...e and after work , all the people drawn are good friends and family .
I really wanted to develop a style that could convey enough real emotion as well as just be really appealing and true to individuals character and style. Idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The "Anansi" Project with Sy Blake is also progressing steadily- it's research time , we'll be updating with more visuals soon

Keep an eye out and stay tunnned Thanks for following guys! :')

I wrote a poem.

"I dreamt once of a better life with you,

when actually ,it seems you’re bent on making my worst nightmares true.


I can’t trust you with my life, you can keep your Red, White & Blue.”

I’m emotional , disappointed and tired of being tired .

Most Kings…

I’m upset and unsure of what to say that already hasn’t been said ,but I just want to let every Black man and woman who follows this blog that despite what everything in the media depicts , despite whatever label they’ve thrown onto you because of the color of your skin you’re worthy of life and of all the love in the in the world.

Saying Black lives matter almost annoys me. Of course they matter, ALL LIVES MATTER! It’s a shame we have to reiterate it.


My mom grew up during apartheid and used to tell stories that at the time flew over my head. I couldn’t imagine a person doing such hateful things to another person for something as beautiful as their skin. I hope no kid ever grows up to face the things we’re facing now and never has to feel the frustration and helplessness that I am .

Stay safe friends x

Unfortunately I won’t be there but my piece will- along with some other awesome artists who I work with( wscottforbes, halfglovepunch , perinm & shaburdies ...) and some who I follow on tumblr. Go check it out if you're in L.A at Meltdown Comics/Nerdist Showroom on August 16th! Should be a good time .
