Gen-e-sis
Gen-e-sis // 20 in x 20 in // 4-Color Silkscreen Print on Woodstained Panel // Not much of a painter, I'm more of a multimedia artist. This piece was selected for the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Citywide African American Artists Exhibition in 2017. It's a portrait of my son at the age of 3, yet ironically, it continues to grow with him. I named it "Gen-e-sis" which represents the beginning of fatherhood and our journey together.
Silkscreen Printing
Rocketeer Wes
Photo Illustration Artwork. I titled this piece, "Rocketeer Wes," mainly because my son is obsessed with all things that take flight (airplanes, rockets, etc.) Well, since he was not old enough to join me on my first skydive jump, I decided to give him his own set of wings to fly.

King COOGI
22-years after the late Christoper "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace's untimely departure, his presence and lyricism still moves mountains. As one of top-10 lyrical influences, it only made sense for my to include Biggie into my Designer Rap Tour Art Series.
