Here's a new "Wonder Twins" Cartoon Portrait I completed recently...

My friend Rochelle contacted me because she wanted a Cartoon Portrait for the husband-and-wife Pastor team of her church. She told me that they refer to themselves as the Wonder Twins because they always use their talents to compliment and look out for each other (I promise they are not brother and sister. That would be gross), so we decided a Wonder Twins theme would be perfect!

Sorry about the blurry phone pic... I forgot to get a good photo or scan of the finished piece before sending it to the client, who lives in Hawaii. I'm happy to report that she got the piece in time to have it framed and give it to them as a gift! Of course, they loved it!

Click here if you want to have a picture of yourself, a friend, or whoever turned into a cool cartoon drawing! Perfect for social media profile pics and avatars. These have been very popular on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, and also work great for other websites.

Wanna see the interiors @SamaxAmen did for Sivion's album "Group Therapy"?

So when I did the artwork for Sivion's album Group Therapy, I agreed not to share the interior art on the internet for a while so that people who bought the record would get something exclusive. After almost a year on the open market, I think it's okay to show this to you, since we're cool and all...

New art- "Love's Gonna Getcha" by @SamaxAmen (cuz you know I love drawing girls with afros)

I believe it was Pat Benatar who taught us that love is a battle field. Well, you better come prepared...

Character design- "GOLDEN MONGOOSE" by @SamaxAmen

One of my clients has a nephew who plays football, who goes by the nickname The Golden Mongoose, and wanted a mascot for the family to put on their teeshirts for a homecoming game.

Rejected character design

Real quick, I thought y'all might like to see this character design from a comics project that died on the operating table last year.

I'm doing the Character Design Challenge again. Which one of these do you like?

I'm trying the Weekly Character Design Challenge again... except now it's monthly, I guess? So the point is they give you five random shapes (above) and you create five head shots. Then you choose one and develop a turn around, then a full character. Because I'm not good at choosing, I'm letting YOU choose which one of the five characters below I will take to the next step:

SOLD! "My Hair Has Never Been Cut" by @SamaxAmen

Here's a close-up photo of Old Testament action hero Samson from my painting My Hair Has Never Been Cut (peep the full piece below). Shout out to my friend Amanda, who agreed to buy the painting (without even seeing it) based on the description "featuring Samson lounging at the crib with the original Femme Fatale, Delilah."...

"Toon-Up" collabo by Samal McNealy and @SamaxAmen

It's been a long time since I colored someone else's artwork, but when my friend and fellow art hustler Samal McNealy commissioned me to color this portrait he was working on for a client, I just COULDN'T say no...
