Nuyorican Poets Cafe + Soundbites

SO ever since January I've been practicing with my poetry team, Slam Nahuatl (pronounced na-what), for the Soundbites Poetry Festival held on Broadway in NY. On April 10th-12th, we competed against about 9 other teams, and we WON! Repping Richmond VA, we became the Champions of the first team competition (we were rewarded a nice lil amount of prize moolah too.)

Also, that Friday before the competition I got to perform at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.That too was an amazing experience for me, so I'll share it with you all:

This is super late, but thanks Saul

Way back in January,

I posted up an illustration of Saul Williams.
Well, Mr. Tardust put it up as his Facebook profile pic for a little while AND shotted out my blog.
For a moment, I felt like I won the lottery;
only without the moolah...

SO if anybody doesn't know who this extraterrestrial is than check his work out at

Your support is appreciated Saul.

Chronicles of Bobby

Here is documentation of my Space Research Installation Project. My idea was influenced by Mark Jenkins' Storker project from back in'06. My goal was to take it a step beyond his work by interacting with the tape sculpture instead of just observing others' reactions to it.
So here are the Chronicles of Bobby. Enjoy!

Portfolio Review...

On Monday I submitted my portfolio to the Communication Arts Department. I have made some great work these first two semesters, and I feel making it into the department will be the pay off for it all. So Please, keep me in your prayers guys!

In the meantime, here are some illustrations I've experimented with in the last couple of weeks!
