There was literally TOO many amazing folks that came by the Tuskegee Heirs table at NYC Comic Con this past weekend, but I did my best to capture a handful of the awesome. I'm super humbled to be shown the amount of love and support from all the people that do as we travel from show to show, so I'm sending truckloads of respect and gratitude right back at you all. Thank you a million times, seriously. As the 1st images show below (tons of adorable with our youngest Tuskegee Heirs cosplayer to date), the reasons for creating the art that I do has manifested 10x over these past few years. I'm grateful to be on the path to changing young hearts, minds and futures through creating positive images. Y'all are awesome. Peace. #marcusthevisual #tuskegeeheirs #nycc2018
