This painting evokes a sense of nostalgia inspired by the elaborate style and mannerisms femme presenting black folks exude throughout the 90’s into the early 2000’s.
Tightly coifed prim colorful hair, sheer billowing blouses.
I’m often inspired by everyday life and fashion is an integral component of cultural identity. The person depicted here is plus-sized in dapper masculine presenting clothing.
I developed a clothing brand entitled CZN, to house my silkscreening and tangible printed good.
From time to time I challenge myself with projects that vary from my “norm” as a narrative driven artist. But when inspiration calls… answer.

Style is what sets artists apart from one another. Your style’s your inner voice. Every one of my drawings stand as musings from my most authentic self.
C’mon “Lazy AF”? Really..

In the beginning of 2017 I had the pleasure of Interning for CRWN Magazine, a publication unlike any other in aesthetic and purpose. The opportunity lent to me a great sense of artistic development and gave way to this amazing piece.
