1001 Black Men–#378

Here’s another drawing from the APE (Alternative Press Expo) sketchbook. On Sunday, the second day of the Expo, this guy was the second person to stop by my table. He was very friendly and he really took his time looking at my work. He did, however, seem a bit skeptical of my motives. Did I mention that this seemed to be a trend among some of the younger Black men who stopped at my table? I think that some of it had to do with the setting. Among so many comic artists depicting the space age and the supernatural, an artist whose work is essentially a journal of my experience of seeing everyday Black men must have seen a little odd.
