Wow, man! Your fantastic style really inspires me. I try to be a good animator myself and I just know I have to work real hard till I be like you. Or better, I will never be as great as you. Either way, thanks for inspiration. Id like to see some kind of tutorials on animation or drawing from you.

Amazing gallery, it's totally awesome to see how much you've improved even just on the length of time you've been a DA member. I'm not sure whether or not your birthday on DA is correct but it says it's in 2 days so i'd like to wish you a Happy B'day early. I watched all of boondocks with my friend and we thought it was hilarious. I showed it to some of my other friends... they were unsure on whether or not they should laugh or be offended. I'd like to thank you for all the inspiration and techniques i can glean off of your work! Just a quick question before i go, do you practice drawing in one set style or do you try to mix it up ranging from realistic to complete cartoons?
Thanks So Much

p.s I enjoyed your Seoul sessions immensely!

Thanks DiableHaven!

I appreciate it. I'm still trying to get better. Still have a lot to work on. As for the Seoul sessions, thank you! I try to share what i know, hopefully to inspire/motivate some younger artists out there. 

As for my drawing style, I generally range between simplified realism/caricature & straight cartoon. 

thanks for watching!

You are one of the greatest artist I've encountered and trust me I have a lot of favorite Artist (Reiq, Yamashita Shun' ya, Bob Raffei) I've just started college and I was bummed that I couldn't get into any art classes then I went a whole week of almost giving up Then I saw your work and read your description on wiki Now excuse me if I sound racist but I was like " Is this dude African American" ( once again excuse me if I'm wrong you could be Brazilian). Once seeing that it resparked my passion for art as an African American male like myself I don't really get as many hero's due to what's shown on tv but wow you easily took My favorite artist number 1 spot I consider you as my Hero if that counts for anything please keep up the great work.

Hey Bradley, thanks a lot for the kind and humbling words. I don't think it's racist to want to see someone who looks like you telling stories about you & your culture to reinforce self esteem and cultural pride. historically, white Americans dominate this country as well as all who look like them in media, influence and perspective. That goes for comics, filmmaking (animation) TV included. Because this country is supposed to represent equality of all races, it can be a bit confusing when you indulge in these media outlets and don't see yourself better represented. That also goes for role models and motivators and inspirational heroes to look up to. So yes, I understand your POV and I whole heartedly support and salute your idea and thinking. 

In a perfect world, my skin color and culture shouldn't be an issue. But sadly, in the real world we live in, it's much more complicated and troublesome as racism is as a part of American ( and in many ways, global) culture as apple pie. It won't ever truly go away, but we can at least attempt to take a bite out of it by trying to be brave and make a difference for the future generations...how ever big or small a scale. Thanks for watching and good luck, bro.
