Comida continued

Its my personal belief that in order to reduce the amount of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, etc we must make alot of small gradual changes in our diet. But, if healthy food is not marketed or even representative of people of color, will our families eat it? Or is it a question of the cost? Because organic valencia oranges, fuji apples, or blueberries are hella (very) expensive....

Reworked drawings/ptgs from Supercuts show in SF

Ice Cube, JDavey, Nneka, Oumou Sangare, & Raphael Saadiq

There are about 15 or 20 different musicians I drew that night, these are just some of them. I think i already mentioned this but, would you believe I did one of Goapele and ran into her God Father that night? Crazy! Anyway much respect to all these super talented musicians.Their sonic waves have affected my brain in so many ways.

Check this one of Mongo Santamaria
