The King of Wakanda Arrives!
The King has arrived! Anyone who knows me knows how much of a Blerd I am and my crazy level of love for black superheroes. Last night the long awaited dream cam true... The Black Panther hit the big screen.
And it was everything and then some. Bless
up to my brother and podcast co-host Eli for putting together a private viewing party for it. I don't know if I can ever go back after experiencing the luxury theater that is Cinepolis.
The vibe was amazing, not only was there a
red carpet (of which I missed) but raffles. Raffles that included the grand prize of an original Black Panther Illustration by yours truly.
I don't like to create other people's characters now that I've created my own. At most I like using my characters in cosplay
of others. But this was a special occasion. So i created it with the intent of it being a real one of a kind, no prints to be made.
Needless to say I ended up really liking it. U wanted to win it back but Eli wasn't allowing me to enter the draft. So congratulations so Dorothy (who also was one of my former art students) on winning... I'm plotting on how to get it back tho 😂😂😂
I'll save my official review for J.E.L Podcast, formally known as Cap and Tie... But Mayne everything I wanted this to be since growing up it was and more.
