Passion Transforming Paper into Powerful Art

It’s cool to see spontaneous artwork freely sprouting from the minds of people given the tools and opportunity for expression.

Outside of the OnyxCon Infinity Convention, people were creating artwork on the spot. In the hallway, a huge sheet of paper covered the wall. Art supplies were on a nearby table.

As the day went by, the canvas began to fill with cartoons, caricatures and creatures. Usernames, affirmations and art school announcements augmented the experience.

Replay: Joey Pinkney Moderates the Black Science Fiction Society Panel at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2016

A few weeks ago, I mentioned on Joey’s Pen that I had the opportunity to moderate the Black Science Fiction Society Panel at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2016.

The panelists for this session was Jarvis Sheffield, Chastitie Goodman and Tonya Woods. Javis Sheffield is the founder of the Black Science Fiction Society. Chastitie is the author of the book “Could I Really Be President.” Tanya Woods is a cosplayer (who came to the IndyCon dressed as a Jedi).

During the hour-long discussion, we talked about how we became interested in Black SciFi and Afrofuturism, we get a chance to see what makes each panelist tick in terms of their creative aspirations, we detail the computer programs and cellphone apps we use on a daily basis, and much, much more.
