As you know, I participated in Manifest Hope:DC, the inaugural art exhibition featuring art work inspired by Barack Obama and his theme of change. The work from that show was collected into a book, Art for Obama.
The two pieces that I was honored to display at the show are published in this book. Is He Black Enough? and, Kenyan-American.
I went to Border’s today to check it out and took pictures with my trusty BlackBerry.

Is He Black Enough?, Oil on canvas, 2008 :
I must say, having my work featured in a book is pretty awesome.
And then walking across the store and seeing my work published in a magazine isn’t too bad either.

Beyond Race Magazine interviewed Moby about his new album, Wait for Me, in their summer issue..
I was commissioned to do the illustration.
The illustration features him alone on a planet holding a synthesizer.
The designer wanted to keep the palette a bluish gray, which I thought was a good idea. But I also thought it would be fun to add a few pops of color by painting a few of the background planets different colors.
On stands now!
The approved sketch:
The designer approved the above sketch and I went on to do the final.

I was the contributing illustrator for Beyond Race Magazine’s latest issue. This issue is pretty awesome, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it.
I did two separate illustrations for them – one of KRS-One, the other of Scarlett Johannson.
