Ladies and gentlemen I have officially finished the first huge chunk of my project for my fellowship!! It has been a long 10 weeks, very long. There were whole days when I would never even leave my apartment (the glamorous freelance life) or have any human contact at all. But it’s done and I’m so happyyyy.

The finished project is somewhere between a comic and a graphic novel (it’s about 50 pages so a long comic or a short graphic novel I supposed) but I will be posting it chapter by chapter on my website over the next 7 weeks (1 chapter per week). Now starts the journey of turning it into an animation which is going to be quite the experience but with everything already drawn and written it’s not so bad. I’ve gone through the planning phases of so many different projects and ideas and now that this has been completed a weight has been lifted.

My project is called How to Win a Race War and for now will only be featured online but I may offer print copies of it at some point (we shall see). To read it simply go to the tab that says “How to Win a Race War” and click “Chapter 1”. Really excited to finally put this out into the world, let me know what you think!

In the meantime, I’ll just be over here figuring life out or whatever it is 21 year olds do.tumblr_inline_orb83x4cU71tyih9i_540.gif

What’s New

I’ve been super busy lately! I’ve been working on a new photo series called Warrior (Self Portrait 2017) and I’m really happy with it so far. I’m very interested in exploring the phenomenon that is black women and what better place to start than with myself? I’m working on a lot of projects right now, 2 animations, this photo series, and a printmaking project, all revoling around this idea of race and identity. I can only show this one picture for now (and honestly it could still change quite a bit) but stay tuned for much more to come!!
