Where do you find your inspiration?

Years past it was mostly comic books, art books, movies, and observing everyday life. All those things still very much apply, but now with the Internet and social media outlets, specifically TUMBLR I can pinpoint and mainline “inspiration” till my heart’s content. My favorite TUMBLR feeds that I love in no specific order are WEAREWAKANDA, SEKIGAN, SUPERHEROESINCOLOR, BETYPE, AFRODESIACWORLDWIDE, BLACKFASHION, ABSOLUTESCIENCEFICTION, ARTISSMOI and MENSTYLICA. I realize it’s a long list but I want to recognize that these sites do a wonderful job curating and presenting interesting work!

What has been the best moment in your career?


Not to sound evasive or overly cryptic… but I firmly believe that’s a moment yet to happen. I appear to be in a phase of reinvention, a personal renaissance of sorts. I’m not exactly sure where this journey will take me but I do feel blessed to embark on the adventure.

What is your ideal day?

Simply put, any day where I’m PRODUCTIVE is a victory. Showing up to do the work even when you don’t exactly feel “inspired”.  When I can tap the vein of creativity and draw, design, conceptualize and promote for six to eight hours DAILY and be in the “zone”… that’s the ideal.

 Who is your role model?


How about six? Reginald Hudlin, LeSean Thomas, Mshindo Kuumba, Brian Stelfreeze, Joe Phillips and Ron Wimberly.

And all equally good!

What is your dream project?


To be a lead character designer for an Afro-futuristic animation production.

 What is the best piece of advice you have received?


I have a hard head and a short memory. That’s not the actual advice of course, that’s simply the admission that nothing’s resonating at the moment.

For what in life do you feel most grateful?


Again, I’m terrible at distilling this to just one thing. Can it be three? My husband, spirituality, creativity.

If you could work with another artist, who would it be and what would you work on?


LeSean Thomas or Phil Bourassa. It’s funny, I’m best known for comic book related artwork but I have a not-so-secret desire to be involved in animation. LeSean Thomas is a talented creator who’s past credits includes The Boondocks and Black Dynamite animated series, upcoming series is Cannon Busters. Phil Bourassa is best known as the character designer for Young Justice. I’d love to work with either gentleman in a character designer capacity for a animation project.

What's the single most important skill you've learned to be successful at creating art?


Tenacity. I’m certainly not the best artist out there and definitely not the fastest, but the most important thing I’ve learned is to be persistent, show up, and get the job done. If it takes three hours or three weeks… keep going till the job’s done!!
