"Electric Griot" is a series of illustrations I've developed that highlight our power to overcome obstacles and grow stronger from our struggles. A “griot” is a traditional West African storyteller and keeper of oral history, however “Electric Griot” is a term that all of us can assume. It is someone who is/is becoming in tune with their electromagnetic existence (just think about how we are naturally affected by electromagnetic frequencies—light/images, sound/words, and heat/comfort—and how we can find more peace of mind, body, and spirit, if we seek to understand and live in harmony with those responses). An Electric Griot is also someone who is embracing their life journey and sharing their story with others to inspire and understand the world around them better. After doing a few exhibitions in 2019, I am now working on my very first graphic novel!
