Excellent work my Brother.  My wife and I were fortunate to be at the 3rd Annual Black Comic Book Festival at the Schomburg Library in Harlem. We were totally into the three panels we attended.  As a coincidence after we left we went to eat and we bumped into the person you mention you were working with on an animation project.  Don't want to say names but we know him as well.  Keep up the good work.

I just went through your entire gallery. I love the overall quality of your character designs, and your skill when creating costumes for science fiction/fantasy settings! You're not afraid of dynamic pose, either. It made me happy to see your work.
