SWEET SIXTEEN
(Comic Book)

If you had told me as a kid that one day I would illustrate a Marvel comic, I would have bet my right arm (make it YOUR right arm) that it would be Spider-Man. I never dreamed I'd be co-artist (with Barbara Slate) on a series for girls! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Six issues in all plus a seventh bonus issue. So have I ever worked for Marvel comics? You bet!!!

I Used To Love Her
How The Commercialization Of Rap Music Has Destroyed Black America
(Book Cover)



Edited By: Ryan C. Greene
ISBN: 0-9779034-3-5
Synopsis:  This book is an open letter to the emcee and the entire hip-hop community to take inventory on the destruction that has been sewn into our community. What once started as a positive culture of musical poets that embraced education, creativity, and empowerment of our race has evolved into a money making machine that promotes sex, drugs and getting rich by any means necessary. The true emcee has become a dying breed that has been forced into obscurity by large conglomerates that now run hip hop.


"I USED TO LOVE HER" will be a collection of commentaries and writings from people from all walks of life discussing the effects of commercialized rap music on different aspects of black culture.
