Title: Padded Room I
Medium: Graphite, black ink, and sepia ink
A few months ago I visited the museum on Emory’s campus and was really inspired (I took over a hundred photos of the collection). This image was born from that and this song as well:

Hopefully I’ll be able to post more artwork soon because I have been neglecting this blog for sometime because life takes over when you finish undergrad.
Title: Heaven’s Hive
Normally I have a lot of sea critters in my work, but lately insects and arthropods have been working their way into my drawings. Its strange because I scream bloody murder at the sight of them.
Title: Cygnus Somnambulism
Its been a while since I’ve made a post. Please excuse the bad image quality. I won’t have access to scanner for quite some time so I’ll have to settle with photos from my phone for the time being :(
Title: Oviparous Equinox
A pencil drawing meant to represent self destructive behaviors and the glorification of these behaviors by mainstream media.
Title: Empty Eyes
Another watercolor portrait.
Title: Through The Eyes of Erykah
A watercolor portrait of Erykah Badu.
Title: Through The Eyes of Me
A water color self portrait. Its been a while since I posted a legitimate painting.

An Image from my sketch book. For this one I just kinda went at it, and this is what I came out with in the end.
More of these to come soon.

This is Thandi Sibisi.  She is the 25-year-old daughter of South African cattle farmers.  At some point she realized that in an African nation, paradoxically African art and artists were grossly under-represented by South African art market.  So, she just opened her own art gallery, and in the process, became the first black woman to own an art gallery in South Africa.  
That’s beautiful.  That’s fly.  That’s beautifully fly.
Original story from Fader; hat tip to Live Unchained for bringing it to my attention.
