Adonis & Bianca in Creed (2015)

“When I mention the scene where Michael B. Jordan’s character, Adonis, taking down her braids, which every black girl immediately died over, she notes, ‘That was not a mistake. If you look really closely there’s cocoa butter and a scarf to wrap her hair. It was a real opportunity to show young black people with nuance, and not have it be about race.’

I love that you get to see a black man be sensitive and vulnerable — and seeing a black woman demand those things of him. As millennial love is not women waiting at home but being just as — if not more — ambitious, and showing how it works when two people are after something.’ Tessa Thompson x

I can finally share this! Around Christmas, Tim Leftwich asked if I would be interested in helping out in a gift for Rooster Teeth. He wanted to make a Guess Who game based on the company and wanted me to make the portraits.

These were a total blast to do. Tim is giving them the game today so I can finally share the image!

CultureCINEMA *Couples* - Michael B. Jordan & Tessa Thompson in CREED (2015) 

“It’s a funky cool indie soul movie wrapped in a thoughtful identity drama wrapped in a reignited boxing movie franchise.“ - @tmtweetz

If you haven’t seen CREED - directed by young African American filmmaker Ryan Coogler - get on it ASAP. One of the year’s best films.
