Because of its mysterious transmogrification from a caterpillar, the butterfly is a universal symbol for intense transformation, usually for the better. If the butterfly is in the egg stage, the coming change is still but an idea. In the larva stage, a decision needs to be made. In the cocoon stage, you are working to make your dreams a reality. An adult butterfly flying in the air indicates sharing, or the need to share, your ideas with the world. Happy New Year 2006!!!!!!!!!!!

In the streets of Harlem, everyone is just trying to have a little fun, groove a little bit here, groove a little bit there...But now Sho'Nuff, the self proclaimed Shogun of Harlem wants to have total control, and with his amazing martial arts skills, who's going to stop him?, the police!? Yeah right, there's only one guy who stands between Sho and total supremacy, and that's Leroy Green the man who can catch bullets with his teeth, who is known by his fans as Bruce Leroy.

Today is a SLOW day for me again, but not for you lucky andre-nites out there that have been waiting like good slaves to see more of my evil deeds. Here are two quick ones i did today while joking around with my office mate and between checking emails and updating other stuff. The first one is a quick one i did of Usher. I don't think it looks like him but two people came by my office and yelled out is that Usher. LoL! I guess its the point on top of the head that gave it away. hehehe! The other is a pic of Fosters. I just finished on a game for that show so i was in that mode of drawing those characters.

Got a slow week this week. Not sure what I'm doing for the hoildays since I'm a member of the Broke Phi Broke club this month. The closing cost of the house took more then i thought and what i was told from day one. But anyway here is a new sketch i did in sketchbook PRO 2. just thought i'd keep it loose since i do so much of my art clean. A-Town out!

Well I love animation, well i love good animation. One short that I've been wanting to see is this Disney short that I heard about called One by One! I don't know why they didn't promote this short better. It was suppose to be on the new Fantasia 2006 DVD but Disney cut that DVD all together. So They stuck it on Lion King 2 which was dumb. Now I have to go rent Lion King 2 just so i can see this 6 min short.

Its Monday and I really didnt get any new drawings done over the weekend. I'm in the middle of moving so I thought i'd post the last thing i drew in my sketchbook from last week. Drawing people never really was my thing until I got a chance to view a few other artist sketchbooks. I'm really getting into it and knocking these things out. I've been trying to do at least one head a day and fell the page if I'm lucky.

Well I just wanted to post something new that I've been taking my sweet time to work on and finish! Here is a pic form my What's Happening super quick teaser. I just wanted to do a screen-saver for myself and a few friends and its coming along pretty well. This isn't finished gotta add the other main characters to the shot but here is a shot form the animation. Maybe someday i can pitch this to a network, but i am thinking of posting it on a podcast if it turns out good enough.

I just wanted to highlight a fellow artist that I get hype about every-time I see something new from him. His art kicks ass and makes me want to burn every drawing I do and start over just because he's skills are so much more advanced than mine. Some of you may know him form his Brother Man comic books from back in the day. Well enough chit chat just check out

I've been trying to keep up with a sketchbook as of late and I been doing a pretty good job of trying to do at least one a day! well here are two pages out of it. Not my best pages but I did like the way these came out. I tried not to spend too much time on these! Just 3 min or so on each one and move to the next one. Trying to get my speed up so i can work faster but still put out good art work.

Well last night I took the wife to see Zapp Mama! Boy was it a good show! a really good show! She rocked it for 2 hours straight and only left the stage once to change clothes while the band kept playing. Erykah Badu stole alot of her act now that i saw her perform live. It was bad enough that they sound so much alike when they sing but their stage shows are also pretty much the same. Here are some pics from the show. I really hate my digital camera i think its time for a new one i got it so long ago and it doesn't have a zoom! I was right up on the stage and these came out like i was far away.
