You know it has occured to me that i havent bought a sketch book in Years. Why you may ask? Mostly because of modern technology. With all these new gadgets such as Wacom tablet and such, i dont need one, i can sketch forever and just delete if i dont like something, it saves alot of time, and its not as messy. But i will say, there is something missing. There is a satisfaction of putting pen to paper that you can never get from drawing into a computer.
Anywho, I havent updated in a few days, been trying to get my head straight. Have you ever gotten to a point where you must make decisions that will effect your career? Either you gamble or you dont. thats where i'm at. Its almost sickening to see that the art industry is in such a sorry and sad state. If you dont have people putting the foot on you to step ahead, your stuck with the people that stick to a mediocre formula that they think will get them quich cash or recognition. I dunno, i wish i could win the lottery and make my own standards...Hey...Ya never know...lol. Peace and Blessings. ^_^

Aza Khan. Aza=Great, Khan=King. I made this character to break the mold of the main characters i usually made...the happy go-lucky Gouku type. As i Grew, i guess my taste in characters matured. Aza is the kinda guy that would seem like an asshole if u didnt know him...why would he be, you would be to if u mom and dad were killed infront of u at the age of 16. As the story progresses in DSX, so will Aza's quest to find himself and his place in the world. You'll see as the story goes on. Peace and Blessings yall!! ^_^
Oi! Sup all, This is Gahn Kano. The muscle of the group. Kinda like Batou in Ghost in the shell if you need a comparasion. Much like every bad ass, he has a rich history. Originally i was going to make him the main character, but i created him so long ago...i decided to make him a verterain. Gahn is Aza's voice of reason, and he gives Aza real tuff love. He also has a love/hate relationship with Assata, cause they were an item at one point. Anywho, Till next time....Peace and Blessings! ^_^

Many people ask me, "if DSX is supposed to be called Dread Society X, why doent EVERYONE has dreads?" Well, DSX's history, in the book, are a group of individuals who started a revolutionary group and used the dreadlocks as a sign of freedom and non-conformaty. Well others walked around "bald"= unaware or unenlightened, those with dreads wore thier hair free as a sign of indepenence. It was an ideology made by the founders, but they did not expect every one to follow it. All yu need to be down with DSX is clear knowledge of what is going on in the world and the heart and strength to change it.
Turner, was a character that i had mad after my run in with skin heads in high school. Some of them were good kids under that neo-nazi facade. But thier need to belong to something clouded their better judgement. When you think about it, the Neo-Nazi movement is still an extreme radical group with its own political ideolgy... Just like Al Quaida. Funny how we go after extremists on one country while we leave the ones at home alone, but thats another blog.
Turner and his brother, in the story, are Skin-heads that no longer share the belief of racism and separation that they once had. Turner joined DSX after learning that his other brothers sold out to the One World Government...not to mention he started a relationship with Assata's younger sister, i'll get into that later.
Till Next time folks...Peace and Blessings!

It seems like i'll be doing a project with Gettosake ENT, and along side Project 450 for BET. We will be workin on Chocolate Thunder (Gettosake's character). I love Chocolate thunder. But i just wished it was for another network. I can't stand BET...it represents all the negative aspects of our culture and exploits us for their own financial gain. But unfortunatley i have to do this, need the cash, credit and experiance. Don't get it twisted, I'm lookin forward to workin with Gettosake and Project 450... i love the project, but not the network....lol.
On another note, i made a new friend. She's mad cool, intelligent, and funny....and really cute. I'm diggin' on her like an old soul record. i'm sure she digs me too. ^_^
Until next time yall, Peace and Blessings!!
