This one has held up really well, especially considering the price point (under $12). After half a year of use, I can still bring it into client meetings without being embarrassed.

Chris and I met in the Comics MFA program at California College of the Arts, where he was my illustration prof. Guy can draw like a demon, and is one of those technique masters that can always show you something you’ve never seen before. When we came together to collaborate and pitched ideas back and forth, Legend was the one that gained the most traction, so we ran with it.

Art helped Odutola not only embrace her identity, but to be proud of it. After receiving her BA from University of Alabama in Huntsville and her MFA from California College of the Arts, she started making drawings using pen and ink. Even though the figures she depicts are always shaded in black, she doesn’t always depict black characters.

During a brief intermission I spoke with students from a sound and space class at California College of the Arts. Marte Hexberg-Fitzwater, a senior at CCA, loved watching someone live mix the Re:Sound space. She agreed the performances were relaxing. “Long drawn out beats,” she said, “nothing for the heartbeat to sync to.”
