Eric Battle and Jerry Craft having a positive exchange during ECBACC. Eric is a very talented mainstream illustrator for the likes of Milestone Media, DC and Marvel to name a few while Jerry is the creator of the syndicated "Mama's Boyz....as American as Sweet Potato Pie" comic strip.
Here we have Sam Joyner, a recipient of the Pioneer's Award in 2005 at ECBACC talking with the new hot Black Age Artist , Jamal Igle, who draws DC's "Firestorm" among other things. This was a meeting of great talents and minds sharing in creativity and excellence.
Bro.G, the creator of "MEMNON" was on hand with his title, input, and resourcefulness at ECBACC. He is a longtime Black Age master of creativity, writing and research.
This Black Age tag was created by Reggie. She is a talented student at the Kenwood Academy High School in Chicago and works part time at the Children's Museum of Chicago. This tag and a few other versions were available at the convention as T-Shirts.
She writes, "Working for someone is great, even when you are doing your own art-work for them. Knowing that they are not wanting it because it looks cool but because they believe in you and know you are talented.
"Da Black Age" was the first tag that I have ever done for someone and I 'm glad that it went to Mr. Onli. I feel very good that I was successful with this piece. It was totally awesome to work with Mr. Onli and to work with him in the future."
