The Revolutionary Times - No. 162/New Site

After about a year of hiatus, Brandon and I are finally bringing the gang back together. And in a big way. This week is the start of new Revolutionary Times comics.

But that's not all. We're not coming back empty handed. Nope, we bring to your our first official website! It's been a while in the making but we finally found a platform that helped us something nice and clean to the present to the world.  
Along with that, we're finally returning to our first book "50 Ways Of Being A Revolutionary" and offering it you all as an eBook!

So yep, the revolution is finally back and we aim to make it leave a mark this time. New comics drop every week!

"Sean + Shea" 08 - DJ Mustard

In this week's rap comic over at Complex, we take a look at DJ Mustard (producer for rapper YG) and his first piano recital.

We Made It...


...not really but apparently I was in the Entertainment section of today's edition of The Saginaw News. It's all taken from a recent article that was originally for MLIVE.com. Thanks again to Jessica Shepherd for even considering to interview me.

Also I'm a featured person of the month over at New Age Rebellion



I'm not famous though so... get that out of your system.

RED: Warmth Vol. One (Cover)

...Speaking of RED, since there's now a soundbed for it now is the perfect time to drop the cover for digital mini-book companion to the upcoming RED Book sequel. 

RED: Warmth Vol. One is scheduled to drop digitally on April 23rd. Yep, VOLUME ONE. Because of the surprising turn out of submissions Warmth is getting split into two volumes with the second half being released during the summer. That should give people enough RED to go around while I work on Chapter Two for the remainder of the year. 

MUSIC: KuroiOto - Black, Brown, & White


Recently fellow BLAT! member KuroiOto asked me to embark with him on a journey to bring visual life to his upcoming instrumental tape Black, Brown & White - a celebration of the beauty of black women. And with that idea we both came up with several images based on each song, which were inspired by the likes of Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, and Erykah Badu. There's even a beat on there inspired by the upcoming RED: Warmth book. The tape dropped at midnight last night on Producers I Know so please do yourself a favor and cop it for yourself. You can also stream/download it below as well.

"Sean + Shea" #05 - "The Aubrey Graham Response Center"

This week's latest "Sean + Shea" has dropped and it founds its way on the main Twitter AND on the Complex Instagram. I guess it's safe to say that, ahem, we made it?

Hellboy's 20th Anniversary


Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Mike Mignola's Hellboy. Mignola is one of my favorite artists and highly influential in my style of art ever since I was inadvertently introduced to him via his work on Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

SMACK FUN FACT: The cross bracelet I wear on my drawing arm is partly inspired by the same way Hellboy wears his.

The Night The Mouse Trap Took Over AOHH



Friday night was the return of AOHH (Art Of Hip-Hop), iV's staple hip-hop showcase in Flint, MI. So Big O suggested I brush up on my mural making skills and do a little something on the walls of Flint Local 432. It was my first time messing around with acrylic markers so I think it turned out nice for something simple.

"I Can Hear Jimi" #01 - Melo's Motivation

I’ve been holding this news in for the longest. Whew.

So along with the Complex joints, I’m also doing a weekly NBA comic series with Shea Serrano called “I Can Hear Jimi” over at ESPN Truehoop. The first one with Carmelo Anthony just went live.

And now I have to start watching basketball. For reasons.
