Revolution will be heard

Can you tell me a bit about yourself and where you grew up ?

I am an illustrator, painter and graphic designer. I've been drawing since I was able to hold a crayon in my hand. I was born in San Antonio, Texas. I have lived in Durham over 20 years. I studied art at NCCU where I got my bachelors degree.

How do you describe your style of art ?

I would describe my art as pop art with a social statement. It's graphic art that uses vibrant colors and dark bold lines. The work provides commentary about the human condition.

What inspired your design for Mural Durham ? 

The on-going issues around equality in the United States.

What are some other projects you've been working on recently ?

I am currently working on a graphic novel about a African American superhero by the name of Herald Jones, The Jade City Pharoah.

Do you have any favorite spots in Durham ?

I am a big fan of The Vegan Flava Cafe and Beyu Cafe!
