Depth Of Field presents Hip-Hop & Comics: Cultures Combining at San Diego Comic-Con!

Here’s the official press release for the panel I will be on at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con this Saturday. I’m very fortunate to be in some great company. I’m super psyched to meet Del The Funky Homosapien. I’ve been a fan of his work for years and I can remember buying his first CD like it was yesterday.

If you’re going to be at the con on Saturday I hope you will come check out our panel and say hello.

I will also be shooting a video on Friday and Saturday for my song “Super Secret Identity”. I am looking to feature all cosplayers in the video, dancing and having fun in superhero/villain themed costumes. So if you are into cosplay and will be at the con shoot me a line for more details.
