As I was researching and drawing the story of Bessie Stringfield I ran across The Green Book. It was a book used by black people when traveling during Jim Crow era. It would list places where it was safe to stay, eat and stop for gas if you were black.
I have some tweaking to do, but I am really into these colors.
Bass Reeves: Tales of the Talented Tenth #1 went to press this week, so I began working on #2. Here is a sketch of the cover.
Now that Bass is mostly complete I am on to the next Tale. Tales of the Talented Tenth #2 will tell the story of #BessieStringfield a motorcyclist and mail currier for the US army. She was known as the Negro Motorcycle Queen.
First stop lecture at Google.
Then WBUR 90.9 interview Radio Boston. Then Harvard Book Store signing tonight at 7pm. #busy
