What do you do, quickly, what’s your “elevator pitch”?

I usually find it difficult to define the type of artist that I am because I am constantly evolving with my interests. However, for the sake of helping the readers understand my journey I will share that I am a production artist at Turner Studios in Atlanta where I do a variety of design and illustration work ranging from storyboards, concept art, character/background designs to logo and caricature art.

What you’re up to at the moment, and where can people see you and your work, in person or online?
The Brotherman Comic series is pretty much my claim to fame however I work closely with my two sons on film and music production. I help out with pre-production work and you will see our latest project where I helped to design and build the props for the Sentinel Police from my sons’s movie entitled, JEROTIS. I wanted to give you behind the scene shots of the film and you can actually view it here. It won BEST PICTURE and Best Special FX and Nominated for Best Drama in GA State’s Campus Film Festival of 2013. My older son, Ndosi Anyabwile, is the Director (he has since graduated) and his younger brother Omari Anyabwile, (17) assists with sound and editing.
