A few weeks back I shared a story on Twitter about an encounter I had with a young artist, and how I almost screwed the whole thing up. I'm happy to say it worked out in the end, but I wanted to share this with you as a reminder of how easily we can discourage the people who need encouragement the most!
There you have it.
Please, if you are called on to encourage a young artist, DO IT! Costs you nothing, but it can mean the world to a person with ideas.
Also, this story serves as an example for how kids need a hero that they can relate with. I'm happy we have heroes like LeSean to inspire young black artists trying to come up in comics and animation. Much respect to LeSean!
Big news! The Geppi Entertainment Museum in Baltimore (right next to Camden Yards) just hung an exhibition of my work!
Here are a few sneak peeks.
The Museum is a sight to behold, the collection is amazing, and the building is beautiful, so I'm thrilled and honored to get to show some work there.
The exhibition is to open this coming Wednesday (July 13th), and the show is to run three months. It'll feature more than 25 pieces of art, including covers and double page spreads. All the good stuff! So, if you're coming to Baltimore (maybe for the upcoming Comicon?) for anything please stop by and check it out.
