I am actually doing pretty well, to be honest. But I do spend a lot more time than usual talking to people lately.
I got a lot of stuff bubbling behind the scenes and what not, but I still have a few gems I can show you.
In a time when we are hearing a lot about (and fighting to improve) the black experience with law enforcement, my clients and I are over here creating comics and strips starring black superheroes...
The Brother: Run Alonzo, Run
I haven't been talking about it that much, but I recently returned to work on the LOOONG awaited collaboration with Jay Kelley called The Brother: Run, Alonzo, Run.
The Brother is an African time traveler who for some reason has taken an interest in notorious career criminal Alonzo Greer.
The resurrection of this story comes after a long hiatus, and both Jay and I are excited to see this story get told.
Here are a couple pages I completed last week. If you've been with me for a while, you've seen bits and pieces of these pages, but I'm excited to share the completed art with you here.
I'm creating Run Alonzo Run to be printed in black and white, but I'm also sharing versions of the pages colored byRodney Jean-Etienne.
I can't say for sure when this short story will be finished, but I can say it will be this year.
Stay tuned for more....
Superheru part 3
I finally finished a new episode of J.R. LeMar's SUPERHERU on Thursday afternoon.
If you've checked out more of J.R.'s comics, you might recognize these guys from The Friends Zone, a strip J.R. does with Celina Hernandez.
J.R. loves to do crossovers so that fans can envision that all his strips take place in the same world. As someone who has known J.R. for a while now, I can say that it speaks to his interests in many genres, and his desire to do bigger stories.
That's all for now, fam. Thanks again for reading!
