Merch Feature – Good Housekeeping


Yo! One of my products got featured in Good Housekeeping. One of the hardest things to get is press when creating products for consumers, family, friends, etc. My sticker sheet on “self care” was featured along with several other items for teens. Check out the piece here.
You can cop the sticker sheet from my shop! Get one for you, or a bunch to send to friends. 
Previously, the sticker sheet got featured in Buzzfeed too. 
Thanks for your support as always!

Feature in Mother Mag


Yo, so this happened! I posted this on social media but wanted to mention it here. I am mentioned as one of 30 Black children’s books illustrators. I am pretty juiced about this because it is nice to be acknowledged for your work every now and then. I know there are tons more illustrators out there and a bunch of cats I know who are super skilled. But, I accept this recognition and it feels good to share it. Thank you Mother Magazine. 
Please go to their site and read the post. It has a bunch of really talented veterans and new artists in it. Some of which I’ve actually met in real life. Like for real for real. Haha.

Furqan’s First Flat Top UPDATE 10- Univision TV interview

I was on UNIVISION 19 (TV Channel) in Sacramento today thx to Univision and the teachers from my son’s school. Was nervous as hell, but managed to mumble through it ok. Hopefully just 1 parent who might identify w/ “Furqan’s First Flat Top” saw it. For that I would be thankful. Please watch here.
Yo estaba en la canal Univision 19 hoy en Sacramento. Gracias a Univison y las maestras de la escuela de mu hio por este oportunidad. Yo estaba bien nervioso, pero yo puedia hablar…mas o menos. Espero que una mama o papa lo vi y puede identificar con “El Primer corte de Mesita de Furqan”. Por eso yo estaria agradecido. Por favor, ver lo aqui.
