New Squad comics!!!

 


This summer I lead Art in the City  a  Liberty Leads program  at the Bank Street School for Education. From June throughout July high school students learned about the fundamentals of animation. Students create animations based on the college common application questions. Students also learned about editing, green screening, Photoshop and After Effects.

I just finished animating and editing Red Viper which also happens to be a comic strip that I’ve been developing. I am also very excited that I made this animation into a New Media Project through SAG. This is the second episode but don’t worry there’s a recap of the first episode in the beginning of the video. Throughout this animation I really tried to make the character drawings cleaner. Special thanks to David AbiNader and Colleen Britt for all their help.

Have you ever tried drawing for six hours straight? It’s interesting because after a while you don’t think anymore you just create. It kind of like an actor who is memorized and ready to perform. I felt the same way when I drew yesterday and knowing that people wanted my work was so humbling. Yesterday I had an opportunity to work at the Bank Street Fair and create quick portraits of kids in oil pastel. Truly an amazing experience.

I am very excited to announce that I will be drawing five minute oil pastel portraits at the Bank Street School for Children at 610 West 112th Street on Sunday from 10am until 3pm. I’ve been practicing for this event all week. Take look at some of my examples.

This strip was inspired by a conversation I had with a  close friend of mine.
IMG_2039I think this maybe the last Prince purse that I ever do.

princeI can’t believe Prince passed away. I was commissioned to paint this picture of Prince along time ago. It was actually one of my favorite pieces to work on because I am such a fan.

In this episode of Squad, Ud is having trouble staying awake in algebra class. While dreaming he encounters many imaginative foes which help him solve the problem in class. I was totally influenced by Kill Bill and dinosaurs. Check out more of my work at www.batsin.com

New animation by me about my teenage years!!!

I just sold this Pam Grier purse this week!12186268_10153654592877459_4918185931822902452_oI am happy to announce that I’ve sold two purses this month. The Frida Kahlo purse was a commission and the Beyonce purse was a artist project that I worked on personally. 11034275_10153642025222459_210610801439304308_n-2FullSizeRenderIMG_0689
I’m working on this Nina Simone purse. It just so happen that Nina Simone was my first concert. So I had to create this.

I got inspired this weekend so I tried my hand at doing purses again. I went on Facebook and asked what people would like to see on a purse and the word got out, they wanted to see Dorothy Dandridge. So I created a Dorothy Dandridge Handbag. Don’t worry it’s waterproof and it’s for sale.

In this episode I created an animation about Hulk Hogan and his views on African American males dating his daughter. It’s shocking to know that so many of my favorite wrestling personalities were so negative. First the Ultimate Warrior and now Hogan?

I just recently joined the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Every month illustrators are encouraged to create artwork based on words of the month. If chosen one lucky artist will get their art published in a monthly art bulletin. The word for this month was Adventure. I was not only inspired by Indiana Jones but all the many Nintendo art covers for video games like Mega Man and Super Mario that I collected. If you take a closer look at those covers you will notice that the heroes on them  are very joyous flying and effortlessly  dodging the dangers  while retrieving the treasures of the jungle.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I have always been a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles.  They have continued to evolve and withstand time. These characters have become embedded in my mind for many years.  The Ninja Turtles are an example of art that will never die. I wish this for my own work. I painted this image of the turtles to pay homage to that little boy that loved the fun of being a kid watching cartoons in the 90’s.
