A new personal piece! Sort of an ode to my gaming habits as a teenager. My room looked nothing like this, but the spirit is there. The game is RayForce (aka Layer Section aka Gunlock aka Galactic Attack), still one of my favorites. It had an option to display the game horizontally so you could flip your TV on its side; something I never bothered to do.

If you don’t care about your data, I uploaded a larger, 60fps version of this to my portfolio site. 

I also added a print version to my Society 6 account, minus the animated screen because, you know, you can’t print animated gifs.

When The Beat Was Born: DJ Kool Herc and the Creation of Hip Hop is officially available today! Written by Laban Carrick Hill and illustrated by myself, this children’s book follows the life of DJ Kool Herc and the birth of hip-hop culture. This is my first children’s book so it’s exciting for me to see the product in its final form. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy, you can find it at various retailers including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can also find more information about the book on MacMillan’s website.
