Recently one of my old pieces, the "Maybach" one inspired by "Maybach Music II," was featuring along with a bunch of other great black artists in the exhibit Invisible Ink down at the University of Tennessee. The exhibit was set up by John Jennings and Damian Duffy. You remember those names right? You should. Because they're the reason I got featured in their book "Black Comix: African-American Independent Comics, Art & Culture."
Recently I was led to a t-shirt contest held by the HBO show How To Make It In America over at their Facebook fan page. Being a fledging fan of the series I just had to take a shot at something. Taking the basic ideas of the concept of the show and a quote from one of the character during a recent episode, I designed the shirts to invoke a feel of chasing dreams, the city of New York, and simplistic design.
Click on the photos to head to the shirts' pages. The voting starts on October 24th so make sure to vote for mine!
Usually this is where I'd slap a Rev. Times comic down and tell you to read it and laugh or the team will punch you (okay, maybe we haven't really added that last part but...come on...it's implied). But unfortunately today, there will be no comic. Actually from here on out Brandon and I are going back to our past "one comic a week" schedule. I know, I know. The double dose of Rev. Times is no longer possible. We apologize in advance...
...BUT there's a light at the end of this tunnel. The reason we're going back to our old schedule is because we've officially started work on a new book/mini-comic aptly entitled "Propaganda."
...of course that's all we can tell you right now. There is no set release date as of now, but more news will be posted as we progress on the book. Stay tuned, true believers!
This week the world lost two great men, innovator Steve Jobs and Civil Rights activist Fred Shuttlesworth. We here at The Revolutionary Times want to take time to appreciate the impact that both men had on the world.
