The Bronx-born photographer Lisa Leone began taking pictures of hip-hop artists she knew in her teens and twenties. Today, her work offers a look back at some of hip-hop’s biggest names when they were just getting their start.
I will be seeing many of you at Small Press Expo (SPX) this coming weekend at the Sparkplug Comic Books table. One of the newer comic titles I will definitely have for sale is NEVER FORGETS, which was nominated this year by the Ignatz Awards committee for Best Minicomic.
If you enjoy reading the story and plan on attending SPX this year, please consider voting for NEVER FORGETS under the “Best Minicomic” category! And while you are at it, be sure to check out the other Ignatz-Awards nominated comic titles at SPX, which will all either be available for sale at various exhibitor tables or for free reading at the Ignatz Awards voting table.
It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the Ignatz Awards committee, and to have that coincide with my first-ever SPX experience is simply wonderful. Looking forward to seeing and meeting many of you there!
