Hello everyone,

I'm helping my book publicist spread the word about my new art instructional book, "How to Draw Noir Comics: The Art and Technique of Visual Storytelling".

In addition to all new black and white artwork, it contains previously published work from DC Comics, Vertigo and Marvel Comics. This is my first book, released through Watson-Guptill Publications and The Nielsen Company.

Check it out at:

I recently had a great turnout for my signing at the Hue-man bookstore in Harlem and people are always surprised to learn that African Americans work in the comic industry as well.

Spread the word!
