Treal Toonz made their debut this past Saturday in an exhibition showcasing the artwork. From bright paintings, Illustrations, pages from the work in progress comicbooks & more.
Those who came where treated to up close view of the new body of work. In my 8 years of being an artist this exhibit was
A creator giving the general public a great behind the scenes look of what Treal Toonz was about.

All I heard for the last two
Tamarind being considered a "dangerous hood"....

Seeing the youth embrace the artwork, the books, the bag and having in-depth conversations with them about it is the real win. Inspiring them to do something more... See themselves as more is everything!
It in the end inspired me even more. And reconfirmed for myself that what I'm doing with Treal Toonz is exactly what the universe wants.
The work is still up and we may leave it there for a while so that more youth and people in the community can come through and check them out.
