Making of: Treal Toonz "Squad Up" Illustration

So at this point I still haven't come up with the official title of the graphic novel I've been working on but it's coming along pretty freaking well at this point, story and character wise.

This took a couple hours but I created this dope splash page illustration of the Treal Squad, basically Squading Up.

Blue Pencil Sketch 



Of course completely freehand and inked and colored with watercolor markers on 11x17 watercolor paper.

Enter Treal Toonz

If we don't continue to evolve we die. So again I've gone through an artistic evolution. Embracing more of my cartoonist/writer side.

I've created what I call Treal Toonz. These characters based on my friends and family have open a new world to me. A world as a child I only dreamed of.



A few month back I self published to children's books. "Teddy's Big Break" & "Uncle Duty: Rushing into Trouble".

Click Here to Ordered





These characters have kept evolving. Uncle Duty is more family all ages and what I'm doing with Teddy Elephante and gang is a little older and edgier if you will.



That's just the short end of it all. Check out some of the artwork.







Follow Treal TOONZ on all your social media.


Art for Sale and Merchandise coming soon as the site undergoes maintenance. In the meantime.

From Meeting The Future to Flowing on Stage


Meeting Journalism Students


For artist JaFleu, last week went from 0 to 100 real quick. Beginning with meeting with a youth group from Urgent, Inc's F.A.C.E Journalism Institute. Michelle Hollinger, the publisher of The Sistahood arranged for the students to meet with JaFleu the day before the closing of the All Eyez On FLEU solo exhibition for a private viewing where they could pick his mind.





As the young inquiring minds examined the artwork, they delivered hard hitting questions that stemmed beyond "What inspires you?".



Questions that went to touch on subjects of representation in art, the artist's role in today's society and much more.  As Michelle streamed live  the experience on facebook questions poured in. It was an beautifully intimate time. A perfect way of closing the exhibition.

The Norton


Later on that same day, Visualist & JaFleu attended Art After Dark at The Norton Museum of Art. Sitting to listen and support Street Art Revolution's panel it was an pleasant surprised to see the work they participated in earlier this year as well as their names come on the screen.


FLEU at FLO'POCALYPSE




And of course what better way to end the week than performing at  The Broward Center of Performing Arts  as one of the featured spoken word artists at this summer's Flo'pocalypse. An honor JaFleu plans to never let down.





An experience to never be forgotten from rehearsals, to behind the stage last minute practicing in the mirror to taking the stage and leaving it all there.
