So I told him 10 dollars and his face balled up like a writer creating with writers block. Oh! I’m talking about the guy in the pic with the red hoody. You see, he was asking about the cost of my new newly release coloring book. It seem like him and his people came across the event while walking by. The locals I quickly assumed. They walked around scooping the event trying to register what was going on.
So these fellas rolled up on me smelling like weed smoke wanting some answers. So after mentioning the price. He wanted to at least look through the book. He asked questions. Good questions. The outcome and His reply “I need to buy this for my nephew”. He paid. He wanted me to sign the book. And I enlighten his people about the art work hanging in the shop. Everybody happy. If I judged a book by its cover. The 3 dudes would’ve snub everything about the event. Just putting people together to be better. Yes yes y’all
It’s been a long time coming, this shoot… and for the experience, I am truly grateful.
It was Friday morning, 11:39 a.m., when I arrived at Ras Lumumba’s house. Nine minutes behind schedule. But as I parked my car, he opened his door to welcome me. It’s always nice to see Ras Lumumba… He’s like an uncle to me. Wise. Honest. Funny… and caring. He is… He’s a father, husband, brother, uncle, painter, community leader, Babalawo… He is a man of many hats…many that I have not even named. Continue
Is Mercury still in retrograde? Lawd! The craziness that’s going on towards me make me glad i’m focus on my mission no matter what’s the condition. I might think about it for a quick slight minute. Brush that shit off, then keep it moving. I got places to go and your action makes it one less person to dang see. Yup!
I’m finally finish with this Commission Mf Doom piece. I try not to get attached to my artwork. But I almost didn’t want to finish working on this. My energy was high working on this project. High energy equal super good energy. Super good energy makes me feel pretty aight. I guess I need to create more challenging projects for myself to keep it going. Being better is always the objective! Yup!
