New Poster

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

I've added a new poster to the Store section of the site. This image was done for an art show in Japan - Nippon in Black - an exhibition about the African-American presence in manga. Big thanks to John Jennings for letting me be a part of it. I heard the show went great - sorry I couldn't show up personally.

There are also a couple of new pieces in the Gallery section. Thanks to M. Rasheed and Kris Mosby for the new editions - be sure to check 'em out!

At the moment, I'm collecting several of the online episodes into a print volume - I'll have post updates here as it progresses.

Charity Event

I'll be drawing caricatures at the 1st Annual Truth Fighters Masquerade Ball at the Artistry on November 1st. All proceeds will benefit the Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry campaign. If you're in ATL, come on through.
Big thanks to Fitzroy James for letting me join in. Doors open at 8:30 - I'll probably be there till about 1.

ALSO, I'll have an Urban Shogun related update before the end of the year.

Keep watchin',

The Days Are Just Packed

As you can see, I’m a Dad now. The new lady in my life is a bossy one, so I need to put this site in park for a bit while I’m getting used to the new life.

I've had a great time making this comic over the years, and I hope you've gotten a bit of enjoyment out of reading it, too. I hesitate to say that the comic is OVER, but it will be taking a back seat for awhile. I'm planning on collecting the issues into 2 printed books, with the first being available sometime this year.

I'll throttle down to quarterly updates, as I'm sure I'll still be updating in some fashion. After so many years, I couldn't stop if I wanted to! Big thanks to everyone who read and especially to everyone who contributed:

Tariq Hassan (Pencils/Inks: Phoenix Epilogue)
Alpha Woods (Pencils/Inks: Snake Venom)
Churro (Martial Arts Help)
Andy Runton (Pencils/Inks for the never released "Panther Style". It was awesome!)
Stanley Weaver (Pencils for the group poster)
Phil Bob (Pin-up)
Jaro Alva (Pin-up)
William Colbert (Pin-up)
Missy T (Pin-up)
D'Mario McDonald (Pin-up)
Oscar Padilla (Pin-up)
John Paul Leon (Pin-up)
Matty Field (Pin-up)
William Anderson (Pin-up)
Spyda (Pin-up)
D. Silver (Pin-up)
Will Mangin (Pin-up)
Mike Barnes (Pin-up)
Joseph Hernandez (Pin-up)

Also, many thanks to the forums and online communities that have helped me out so much:

I've met a ton of artist who've helped me out and influenced my style (whether they knew it or not) - too many to list here in fact, but Dawud Anyabwile, Brian Stelfreeze and Cully Hamner have had a huge impact on my work and progress as an artist.

Thanks again everyone - I’m OUT!

Issue 8: Cobra Venom

Issue 8 is finished! For the most part, anyway. I ran out of time and never got to finish the second-to-last page so had to remove it - it was just him quitting, taking off his shirt and tying his hair up.

MomoCon last month turned out great. There was a mix-up and I didn't get a table, so sorry to those who I missed. I did get to participate in the panels, however, and that turned out to be a blast. It was nice getting back to Georgia Tech, and speaking in the same classroon that I once attended was SWEET. I got to meet a bunch of great people and local artists - thanks to all who attended.

This will be my last comic for awhile - I'll explain a bit more in next month's update.

I'll be a guest at this year’s MomoCon in Atlanta on March 15-16 (can't make it to MegaCon this year). I rarely accept commission requests anymore unless I’m at a con, so if you want some art from me and are in the Atlanta area, this is probably the best way to get it. I’ll have Urban Shogun mini-comics and posters as well.
I haven’t been to this con before, but its at my alma mater and they actually invited me, so things are looking good so far. It looks like it’s mostly about anime - I’m not up on the latest anime movies, but if you want to talk about how cool Cowboy Bebop is, or discuss why Avatar the Last Airbender is the best cartoon ever, then I’m your man.

Also, a new page is up. This issue is coming together nicely. I hope to finish it off by next month, as I’ve got a big commitment due in April that will surely occupy all of my free time from then on.

Watch for the Hook

New page is up! The image above will be the new last panel of page 5...just haven't got around to adding it yet. Page 6 is my favorite one of this issue so far - finally had time to do a decent coloring job.

Oh Eight!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years! I had some free time this holiday and got back on track with two new pages and a holiday Crane pin-up. Hope you like 'em - the real action starts next month.
