He is featured in the ground-breaking book, Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture, and in The History of American Graffiti. He created and curated Sequential Art: The Next Step, a traveling exhibition spotlighting the contributions of African Americans to mainstream comic book art and popular culture, featured at the National Center of Afro-American Artists (Boston), Words and Pictures Museum (Northampton MA), Afro-American Cultural Center (Charlotte NC), Tubman Museum (Macon GA) and elsewhere, and his work has also been shown in galleries around the United States.

“I have always believed that all art is relative. Sequential Art is a storytelling medium, but most visual art is telling a story of some kind.”
