Treal Toonz in Tennessee/ JaFLEU x Live Free Magazine News!

On September 10th, I turned 34. And as the God MC, Hov days "A nigga been focused since he said 'Hi' to 30". The next stop of the Certified Treal II Art Tour was also one of the greatest birthday gifts I've ever had.

A few months back I was booked to travel to Tennessee for the Highlander Center's 86 Annual Homecoming..




My close friend and one of my trealest
supporters, Brandi reached out to me letting me they wanted me to come up, do a live painting and paint a wall of one of the dormitories.






Some time last year after they purchase some of the #BlackHistoryToonz prints for the yet to be newly renovated dorms. Outta the love for my homie, Brandi and appreciation I sent a bunch more. Reach prompt them wanting me to book/fly me up.




Ok back to this weekend. So the wall I was Painting right? Well that led into the dorm... The newly renovated dorms which houses...... I kid you not... A permanent art exhibition of my #BlackHistoryToonz Treal Toonz.

But wait it gets trealer... Everyone loved the piece I did so much that they asked I did
something on the otherside. So my art is literally all in and outside of it πŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏ



While there, not only did the "Live Free
Magazine" online article about me drop. Check it out!!! But the Editor and Chief/ Creative Director, Jarvis R Hestor offer me a opportunity to monthly have a 2page spread of Treal Toonz comics about Black Culture for the magazine. Which btw is  about to launch physical distributions..... That's right  Ladies and Trealmen! Ya boy syndicated Cartoonist, πŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸΏ All Praises to The Most High, Ancestors and Spirits!


Being here was the perfect place to learn that. I fell in love with Tennessee's mountains and night skys. Made new
friends and drank moonshine and whiskey.  The event was absolutely amazing. And capped off with the Black Joy Experience, where I got to do what I do best and love most. Paint.



But wait it gets trealer. All weekend I've been walking around barefoot soaking in the energies and vibes.  So barefoot, full filled with vibes ... On stage I painted.

This was an experience I'll never forget. It has definitely changed me. The whole time leading up to it, traveling (including a crazy moment at the airport lol) and even while there the number 84 kept popping up. But I never looked it up until I was getting ready to fly home.

When I saw it's ANGEL MESSAGE everything made sense.
