I write.

I write Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Action and Adventure stories with people of Afrikan descent as the heroes.

Y’all know this.

But what you might not know is I love Science Fiction and Fantasy art and animation and I have been blessed to work with some great artists on the books I have authored and / or edited.

Below is a list of just a few of the Blacktastic artists I will soon work with – again, or for the first time – on a book cover, a graphic novel or an animation project. Enjoy!
