I saw this book at Fabled, a bookstore in downtown Waco that I like to loiter at when I'm out walking, and I just had to buy it for Marley. I showed it to my mom and she loved it too.
It's a collection of illustrations and essays about influential black women from different eras. The author is an illustrator who started this as a project on social media that grew and grew until it became a book.
Anyways my mom, my daughter, and I all love it and think you should totally buy a copy for yourself, a loved one, or both.
If you click the button below the book cover below to order it, I will receive a microscopic payment at some point in the future from Amazon.
I got two sketches done on the road this week, in between the funeral, getting work done, and hanging out with my friends.
The Devil You Don't Know was made as a way to demonstrate how I draw on my Cintiq to one of my friends.
I drew this with no backstory or anything in mind.
As I was finishing it up, I started thinking of one:
So this guy came from a hellish dimension to destroy the world with fire, but a superhero put his flame out and then chained him at the bottom of the ocean. Now he's trying to escape so he can relight his fire and get back to the business of burning down our world.
I might color it and offer it as a sticker or something later. What do you think?
This Firestorm sketch was drawn in my Big Black Sketchbook with an orange Crayola marker.
Firestorm was one of my favorite superheroes when I was a kid. If you want an 8 x 11 print of this sketch, plus an exclusive illustrated essay about the character (written and illustrated by me), mailed to your door, click the black button to pre-order.
I love making magazines, so I'll do a short run of 25 copies!
If you've been following along, you know I opened a store on the site TEEPUBLIC, selling teeshirts, stickers and other printed things with my art.
It's going pretty well. I have five designs on there right now.
As of this week, the most popular design is the Wu-tang Clan inspired design FISH. All these designs are available on multiple colors and items. One of these actually sold on a children's teeshirt this week.
Anyways, here's the rest of the designs I have on there:
If you have bought some of my stuff (from Teepublic, Cafe Press, or wherever), please send me pictures!

Next week we'll talk more about my comic book plans, which consist largely of completing some back-burner projects.
Thanks to everyone who supports my art business.
Whenever you pay for my products and services, a portion of your payment is donated to the Innocence Project, a nonprofit that works to exonerate innocent people through DNA testing and reform the criminal justice system to prevent injustice.
That's all for now, fam. Thanks again for reading!
