New TREAL TOONZ: AmeriKKKa's Way

"I know that it's hard to believe that the people you look to for safety and security are the same people who are causing us so much harm. But I'm not lying and I'm not delusional. I am scared and I am hurting and we are dying. And I really, really need you to believe me."
- Ijeoma Oluo

Oil on Canvas
In having a conversation about America and it's "Troublesome" justice system. I was reminded of a large painting from back in 2015.

And was inspired to revisit it. At the time it was called "FuckUrBreath" because of statements police made while choking another black male to death.

Today it's called "AmeriKKKa's Way".

New Treal Toonz: Lift Haiti Higher

On Sunday evening, Haiti experience a earthquake. I believe it was said to be 5.0. And a day or two later it was said another hit. If you know anything about me you know the whole thing that spark me to who I am today was the 2010 earthquakes.

Back then this was one of the pieces I created in response . It was called "Lift Haiti" using Acrylic and pens on paper.

I was inspired to revisit it. "Lift Haiti Higher".

In it, a world full of prayer and action lifts Haiti to a higher level.
