Peep my new drawing "The Dragon Queen"


If you've been a fan of my art for very long, you're already familiar with Seattle-based jewelry designer Camisha Jackson, a frequent subject of my portraits and sketches.  The first drawing I did of her was as a character called the Dragon Lady (Camisha hearts dragons), back in the Myspace Era.  Since then, the Dragon Lady has ascended to the throne of whatever afrofuturistic fantasy realm she inhabits, as evidenced by the title of this piece...

Here's a Kid Carvers sketch Samax drew for a customer

So I needed some money one day, so instead of asking for money, I offered a one day sale where customers who bought an issue of Kid Carvers & The Backyard Bike Bandits from the GM store got a free sketch of the Carver twins.  The offer got lots of likes, shares and a few comments, but only one customer.  So here's what I drew for him...
