My name is Marcus Kwame Anderson. I was born in Kingston, Jamaica and moved to upstate New York at an early age. I’m an illustrator and fine artist who has been creating art since I was able to lift a crayon.
Much of my work is a representation of the beauty and diversity of the African Diaspora. I believe that the arts can be a powerful vehicle for change and I often incorporate social commentary into my work. I have a lot to say and art is my favorite form of communication.
I graduated from S.U.N.Y. College at Fredonia with a degree in illustration. I’m the co-creator of the ongoing comic book series, Snow Daze, and have illustrated stories in Action Lab’s all-ages detective series, Cash and Carrie. I’ve also done some illustration work for the Action Lab series, F.O.R.C.E.
I recently illustrated the graphic novel, The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History, which was written by David F. Walker and published by Ten Speed Press.
