Happy Juneteenth!
Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. The name Juneteenth is a combination of the words June and nineteenth. The day is also called Emancipation Day and Freedom Day. Naturally, I celebrate Juneteenth every year with people in America.
This color image is showing a Black mother and daughter walking around the Emancipation Oak. I created the picture with others only in black and white in the coloring and activity book called "Black Deaf Lives Matter".

[Image Description: Pictures of People of Color hand signs finger-spelling "Juneteenth" above the same word. 2nd picture of a Black mother and daughter walking around a full-grown, large tree named Emancipation Oak. 3rd picture of the Black Deaf Lives Matter book laying on the 2nd picture. ]

A New Book Coming Out

I want to share some good news with you about my art project that I had been working on for a long while. Finally it is done and complete. I worked with an author to create an awesome book. Her name is Lissa D. Ramirez-Stapleton - one of the best clients I have ever done business with. I thought Lissa and I worked together very well with that educational activity book. I developed illustrations with Black Deaf characters and historical events. The book is to honor Black Deaf Lives as we fight for all Black people. I myself found it very informative and enlightening. Excellent for anyone 9 years old and up, yes, indeed including adults. Copies are sold at Amazon. Please check out this link:

Baby Yoda's Toilet Paper

Hi! May the 4th be with you! I am back to this Blogger page. It needs to be updated really bad. So I have something to share ...

This is a Baby Yoda cartoon that was first published on last week. I have been a member or patron of Patreon for a year following few creators. But I had not been showing any artwork until recently. Now I am a newly active creator to show off creative images. I hope you are finding this cartoon funny

[ Descriptive Image: Baby Yoda on light blue background proudly holding a toilet paper and the headline saying, "The Toilet Paper will be with you. Always." ]

Cartoons: Dogs and Cats with Sign Language

I have decided to create cartoons about animals especially cats and dogs showing some sign language. That kind of the project is for ACEO standing for Art Cards, Editions & Originals. It is a miniature painting for drawing or artwork that must measure 2.5" x 3.5". People use ACEO for various reasons: practicing with creative skills, creating small art piece, selling them for much lower prices, trading or collecting cards with/from other artists, and/or having quick fun.  Those ACEO pieces will be posted on Ebay for sale. Please check that out on: .
