The Start of My Business Career

No Comments

Art has always been my passion and it has always been my hobby. And over the years I’ve gotten better and better with the help of being in art class and doing some research and watching videos on YouTube. I was very young when my mom taught us the basics of how to draw and drawing Runs in my family.

But my career started when with the help of my Uncle who is a successful Entrepreneur and business man help my create my first wordpress blog. I was so thankful because I had no idea on how to create a website and the only way I was learning was from a business class I took in school called NFTE which had us using computer skills like Microsoft PowerPoint. Which was teaching me how to make and design a webpage/Website from sctrach.

Then I learned the basics of using Adobe Photoshop. I started with with Photoshop Elements then I upgraded to the bigger software Photoshop CS6 which the software is beautiful. But I learned to use it in terms of editing photos, doing digital art work, and coloring my own comics that I inked and drew first. So below I have a small gallery showing the work I’ve done. I am working to color all my art and to keep displaying them and I’m about to keep posting some of them hear and on some of my other social media sites. I will also be updating my about me page and will be deleting my contact page and merging it with my about me page. Thank you for reading and for being a subscriber!

Black Panther! Why such a big success?

3 Comments
Black Panther

Black Panther is a black Marvel super hero that has just gotten noticed with his original movie Black Panther. Black Panther first appeared in the movie Captain America Civil War but didn’t get much screen time but was a main character in the movie. I’m not going to go through the hole movie. But it was a great movie!

Not just because this was the first Black Superhero movie of all time but because it was different than a lot of the superhero movies we see today. Like me as an African American I know some of my background and my history and its the same when it comes to Black Panther they explained the background and it gave some life lessons in the movie. Not to mention it was action packed all the way through and had some of the best actors in it. For the box office as of May 22nd sales were at 1.344 billion USD. It made a lot more money than they thought it was going to make but this is something people have been wanting to see. Marvel is definitely heading in the right position right now.

I will be posting which company between Marvel and D.C. are doing better soon. Well, there you have it folks thanks for reading and if you have any thoughts are comments please feel free to right below! Thank you and Stay tuned for upcoming updates! 

 

Motivation! Never give up on your Dream!

No Comments

I’m gonna be honest with everyone I’m not alone in saying this because a lot of people have gone through this too. Don’t ever let what happen to you in your past put you down. Especially when it is something that wasn’t good for you, I was married had a toxic relationship for years and even was giving up what I love to do just to keep her happy. But I came to realise that I was giving up on myself because I thought I could make someone else happy and thought that love could be bought. I had a nice website before was starting to get well known, was making some money from my blog and I was giving all that away because of wrong decision I made in the past! Never give up although I’ve moved on and had family and friends to get me back on my feet. I almost had a accident that almost caused me my life and I’ve learned to never hold on to something that isn’t meant to be! My message to you Entrepreneur and artist or to anyone else that has gone through this or worse “you can succeed and it’s never to late to try again”. Its taking me time and it’s a process but I can and I believe I can become that artist/Entrepreneur I want to be. And my goal is to help others that may need help on where to start and to offer suggestions on what they need to do. If you can repost or share to help someone that just needs that little push to get them the Entrepreneur spirit!

Michael Layne Turner was an American comic book artist known for his work on Witchblade, Fathom, Superman/Batman, Soulfire, and various covers for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. He was also the president of the entertainment company Aspen MLT. Wikipedia.

Sadly on June 27, 2008 at the age of 37 from bone cancer. He was well known for for his Artwork in the DC Comics Superman/Batman which is one of my favorite DC Comics novels and was a top seller too. As seen below his art was fantastic in this book and the colorist was good too, just look below at the inside cover.

I can’t get over how he draws out the background in the city. He has done some work for work for Marvel and was hired by Marc Silvestri  (Top Cow Productions) to do work for them too) in the comics Witchblade. Every piece of art was just brilliant too he made sure too include every detail into each of his drawings. Below is his Witchblade comics from Top Cow Productions and a photo of Michael Turner himself. I’ll will make post and will create a special page of famous comic book artist and their stories.
