Mosaic Magazine Cover -Issue 29

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of illustrating the cover of Mosaic Magazine. If you are one of those who search and yearn for more people of color in literature, if you would like to learn about African American authors, you need to get a copy.

The last time I illustrated the cover of writer/author Tanehisi Coates and write a piece about comic illustrator Dawud Anyabwile.

This time I get to paint author “Ayana Mathis” author of “The twelve tribes of Hattie“. Ayana recently garnered a lot of support after appearing on a certain someones book club. Also in this issue, Zadie Smith, author of NW, White Teeth and many others. Heres a few screen grabs until I get my physical copy.

Shout out to art director Ron Kavanaugh for giving me the chance to do this. It is a worthy cause and an honor…

Just got it in the mail!!!!

After 4 or 5 months of waiting, convo, and revisions,Here you go. Please visit the website and check them out, if you like the stuff you see, you can download the magazine.Also, peep the piece I did on them over at “Come Bien Books”. Hope you enjoy, if you do get the mag, there is a surprise piece I wrote about Illustrator Dawud Anyabwile, the creator of “Brotherman comics”.Whut up Dawud!!

Please lookout for more collabs from myself and Mosaic, i gotta polish up my writing yawl, the big homie Ron(the editor) made me remember why Im a visual artist first, & creative writer( with proper grammar) second…..It was all good tho.
