Wakanda Worldbuilding

The ruling King of Wakanda, T'Challa, addressed the U.N. General Assembly and emphasized that the world had "nothing to fear" from his country and that their Vibranium stockpiles will remain under their control only and out of U.N. oversight. He assured that HE and his country are more than capable to defend itself from any group or government trying to steal the precious metal for devious purposes.

Black Panther Movie Worldbuilding: T'Challa Bill Y'all!

If you have listened to the WU-TANG Clan you are familiar with the classic hip-hop song "C.R.E.A.M. - Cash Rules Everything Around Me.", then you know how important currency is to the world in which we live. The same is true for the worlds or societies in comic books. In an effort to continue my world building for Wakanda and Marvel's Black Panther Movie, I thought visualize what some of that Wakandan currency looks like. Here is a 100 Wakandan dollar bill featuring the King himself, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman)

The Black Panther Movie

Hey Marvel, you know it's never too early to start world building... especially for Wakanda!! How about a gold commemorative coronation coin for King T'Challa? Tony Stark with all his toys and tech will never see his face on his own currency. 

Come on 2017.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

I think the only movie I am looking forward to seeing this year is Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately that movie doesn't come out till the end of the year, and I have been purposely not trying to follow to closely the plot details or character descriptions because I really want to be surprised as to what JJ Abrams delivered on screen. I already have low expectations because the self hype I felt when the Prequels came out was diminished greatly by the final production. Still this new film has sparked the creative fire for my favorite Star Wars film: The Empire Strikes Back.

Unbreakable the movie

I haven't posted in a while....

Here's an alternative movie poster for M. Night Shyamalan's masterpiece "Unbreakable". I created to get the creative juices flowing again.

To me this movie is an underrated classic. It elevated the Superhero movie genre and was a direct reason for the development of the TV series "Heroes" (IMHO). Sam. L Jackson had some of the best lines and acting in this movie. His character summed up my feeling about the importance of Comic Book drawings: "This is a piece of art!". M. Night was still on his game with pacing, cinematography, dialogue, and plot.

The Black Panther

This is my latest piece of art of the Marvel Comic character THE BLACK PANTHER. I hope he gets his own movie, or at least an appearance in the latest Avengers movie: Age of Ultron!

Justice League Fan Art

Just because I am happy about the casting, the writer, or the director doesn't mean I won't see it...or create some fan art or whatever.
