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…

Tanehisi Coates-Mosaic Magazine 24

Last year I did a cover for MOSAIC Magazine and just recently looked back at all the drawings. The person on the cover is writer/author Tanehisi Coates, a very intelligent brother who writes from the heart. It came out pretty fresh and I wanted to show the process, so here you go. If you like it, please bug Ron from Mosaic for copies for your school, office, work,etc.This issue also contained an interview with writer Junot Diaz, and my first published piece about the comic “Brotherman” by Dawud Anyabwile.
